The K-Pop world was rocked when Korean media received a tip-off with an image of what allegedly is believed to be BLACKPINK‘s Jennie and BTS‘s V in a car on Jeju Island.
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.

As the issue took the public by storm, YG Entertainment responded to the media outlet, Chosun, with a short statement. As per usual, YG decided to neither confirm nor deny the rumors.
We have nothing to say.

On the other hand, despite efforts made to contact HYBE for a statement, they could not be reached as of yet.
This is not the first time the pair have been linked. Previously, V accidentally followed Jennie on social media, resulting in similar chaos. At the time, YG Entertainment had also responded similarly.
