A leaked photo taken from what appears to be a CCTV capture has caused lots of distress for ARMY around the world after rumors spread that the male in the picture is BTS’s Jungkook.
In the picture, it appears as if the male, who some people believe is Jungkook, has his arms wrapped around the woman that is believed to be his girlfriend.
Some netizens believed the male in question was actually rapper Hash Swan and not Jungkook, but after receiving many Instagram DM’s about the issue, he posted on his own Instagram story that he is not the male in the photo.
This is not me.
Many people have been asking~
— Hash Swan
Some netizens then discovered and released a different picture from a different day, where Jungkook and the girl in question, named Lee Mijoo, were seen having drinks together.
Some ARMY attempted to deny the rumors by stating that Lee Mijoo was already married.
lmfao yall this is why you should stop spreading bs rumours and constantly tryna invade their privacy . the girl you thought was jungkook's girlfriend is married sksk

However, one ARMY DM’d her friend on Instagram, attempting to get clarification for the rumors that she is dating Jungkook and is married. In response, the friend told the ARMY that while Lee Mijoo is not married, she does indeed have a boyfriend, but that boyfriend is NOT Jungkook.
In addition, the picture showing Jungkook and Lee Mijoo together having drinks was cropped. There was another male having drinks with them, although the identity of the male is unknown.
Nevertheless, if Jungkook really does have a girlfriend, many ARMY are showing their support for him, as having a girlfriend is a perfectly normal thing for a 22 year old male.
if jungkook really has a girlfriend, I hope jikookers respect it and don't go around threatening the girl on social media, please let him be happy
