According to Dispatch, BLACKPINK’s (블랙핑크) Jennie (김제) and BIGBANG’s (빅뱅) G-Dragon (권지용) are both currently dating. We might have a potential new 2021 K-pop couple this year.
The media outlet also stated that the 24-year-old songstress and 32-year-old male idol have been in a relationship for almost a year and have spotted the two stars meeting in secret at G-Dragon’s luxury villa located in Hannam. Sounds like a perfect place for the two dating.
Interestingly enough, Jennie’s first revelation to the public began in 2012 when she was in G-Dragon’s music video for “That XX”, playing as a muse. Moreover, in the following year of 2013, the BLACKPINK idol was also featured in the title track “BLACK”, which is found in G-Dragon’s second solo album.
During the girl group’s appearance on the MBC FM4U radio show “Jung Yoo Mi’s FM Date” in July 2017, Jennie even shared how G-Dragon helped with her on-stage performing. “In the past, before our official debut, I once performed with G-Dragon on stage. I had no idea how to look at the camera and felt lost. G-Dragon told me that I needed to look at cameras with red lights. Later when I debuted with BLACKPINK, it was a big help,” she said.
It looks like their friendship as senior and junior labelmates has blossomed into romance…
Dispatch had spotted the rumoured lovebirds meeting in secret – mostly at G-Dragon’s luxury villa in Hannam-dong. G-Dragon’s penthouse has an independent parking system, together with a separate parking lot in the public parking lot of the villa. There is also a separate entrance with a dedicated elevator situated in the penthouse parking lot that connects to his house.
The highly secured venue makes it the perfect spot for the high-profile couple to spend time with each other. Jennie has apparently even registered her car on the security system, giving her direct access to the penthouse.
It is also understood that Jennie has a routine schedule; visiting G-Dragon right after BLACKPINK’s activities. Jennie’s manager would drop her off at G-Dragon’s house and pick her up after the date. Sometimes G-Dragon’s manager would give her a ride instead.
Earlier on 31st January, Jennie was spotted leaving G-Dragon’s house before heading to a concert venue. A close acquaintance of the two confided to Dispatch, “A lot of people in YG noticed their relationship. Jennie’s mother is also aware of their relationship. She is thankful to him for his thoughtful care.”
So what does YG Entertainment have to say about this breaking news? “We can’t confirm anything about our artists’ personal lives. We ask for your understanding,” the label said.
