Fans Suspect BLACKPINK Jennie And BTS V’s Dating Rumor Is Being Used To Cover LE SSERAFIM Garam’s Bullying Scandal

Here’s their proof.

A photo allegedly featuring BTS‘s V and BLACKPINK‘s Jennie has been making the rounds online. Given that the two are members of top K-Pop groups in the world, the rumors have taken the public by storm.

According to the original uploader, the two stars were spotted riding a car with untinted windows on Jeju Island. This comes after news that Jennie and her rumored boyfriend BIGBANG‘s G-Dragon have broken up. Their relationship had never been confirmed.

This is a photo that was sent in today. It might be they’re lookalikes, but it is allegedly a photo of two top idols. The female idol, in particular, has been rumored to have broken up with an OG idol member. So fans seem to be more receptive to this photo as true. We won’t name any names as we are not able to fact-check the photo.

Some fans argued that the picture was edited, while others insisted that it is raw footage. Jennie’s label, YG Entertainment, neither confirmed nor denied the allegations in a statement to the media outlet, Chosun.

We have nothing to say.

Not long after the rumor spread, fans began trending “LEAVE JENNIE ALONE” on Twitter.

They argued that the dating rumor is being used to distract the public from the recent bullying scandal of Garam from HYBE‘s and Source Music‘s new girl group, LE SSERAFIM.

Although staunchly denied by the company, multiple alleged victims stepped forward to talk about the violence they claim she had inflicted upon them.

Due to the severity of the accusations and the intense backlash HYBE received for their statements in Garam’s defense, netizens are suspicious about the timing of Jennie and V’s new scandal. They speculate that the scandal is being used to cover up Garam’s school violence accusations.

Finally, they pointed out another instance of Jennie seemingly being used to make the public forget about a major scandal. In early 2021, her dating rumors with BIGBANG’s G-Dragon emerged when Seoul’s former mayor, Park Won Soonwas accused of sexually harassing his secretary. He died by suicide not long after the complaint was made public.

Whether fans’ speculations are true or not, it is unlikely to ever be confirmed by the idols’ agencies. In related news, an Instagram account assumed to be G-Dragon’s has recently unfollowed BLACKPINK’s Jennie. Read all about it here:
