Uh oh, TWICE’s Mina and GOT7’s BamBam are currently wrapped up in dating rumours.
The photo of the pair was titled “BamBam Mina Dating Leaked Photo”, and is circulating on various Korean online community sites. This caused dating rumours to arise due to the extremely cosy nature of the photo.
When the photo surfaced, fans tried to defend the artistes by claiming that the photo was photoshopped. However, JYP Entertainment has responded to the allegations. Their statement reveals that the photo wasn’t photoshopped, but the label insists that the pair are only labelmates who took a candid photo together.
Their statement reads:
“It’s just a candid photo. The two of them are simply labelmates. We will take strict action regarding defamation of our artists in relation to this matter.”
The photo allegedly surfaced on the interwebs via hacking, and first appeared on Chinese social media sites. However, no details have been released about the hacker’s identity or the photo’s origin.
GOT7 made their debut in 2014 with TWICE debuting a year later. Both groups are known to be close to each other, frequently making appearances in each others’ videos. The JYP Entertainment rookies also did a photo shoot together for clothing company NBA Style. Bambam hails from Thailand while Mina is a Japanese citizen.
