It seems like the rumours are not dying down anytime soon.
Back in October 2015, YG Entertainment and SM Entertainment both denied that BIGBANG‘s leader G-Dragon and Girls’ Generation’s leader Taeyeon were dating, despite fiery rumours that were ongoing in the interwebs.
We were skeptical too, but fans have gone so far as to look for evidences to support their claims. The “evidences” come from the idols’ social media photos, as fans are putting various photos together in order to prove that the couple are showing off their romance.
Let’s go through some of the “evidences”:
1. Similar Snapchat filters on the same day.
2. G-Dragon and Taeyeon have also been accused of possessing the same keychain. G-Dragon is said to have posted the photos of the keychains on his Instagram too.
3. The idols were also spotted wearing the same black and white bandana on the same day.
Majority of the fans remain skeptical, with many of them stating that these are merely coincidences. Fans also stated that the Snapchat filters and fashion items are commonly found and not exclusively available for the aforementioned idols.
However, fans on the other side are convinced that GTae (as the G-Dragon and Taeyeon couple are known as) are indeed dating, citing the case of Kai and Krystal and Taeyeon and Baekhyun. Netizens did not believe in the fan theory initially, but the idols were proven to be dating by South Korean media Dispatch.
Our take? We don’t know why netizens are so hellbent on proving that they are a couple. In the end, it doesn’t matter if the idols are dating each other, as long as they are happy with their lives, don’t you think?
