Amid all the fuss surrounding the news of G-Dragon (권지용) dating Jennie (제니) from BLACKPINK, idol-turned-actress Lee Joo Yeon (이주연)’s recent Instagram post has been gaining traction among fans.
For those in the dark, the former After School member was previously rumoured to have dated the BIGBANG leader on quite a few occasions.
Earlier on Tuesday (23rd February), Joo Yeon uploaded a few screenshots from the film “Anne of Green Gables” on her Instagram. Strangely enough, the news about the alleged power couple went public not long after Joo Yeon posted the photos!
For those who are curious, the excerpts taken from Joo Yeon’s IG post are translated as follows: “In my personal experience, if you firmly decide in your heart to have fun, you’ll find something exciting to experience. Of course, you have to have a strong desire for it.”
While it may have been seen as a normal social media update under different circumstances, many netizens believe that Joo Yeon’s post came just in time the surprising news made headlines. Due to its coincidental timing, a lot of them assumed that the “Shampoo” singer was giving some subtle hint at her past fling with GD.
As mentioned earlier, Joo Yeon was previously embroiled in numerous dating rumours with the “Bang Bang Bang” jam-maker for quite a few times. The speculation first came to light in 2016, after fans saw some glaring similarities between some of the photos uploaded on their social media accounts. Fans claim that the duo were at the same location at the same time, believing that they were an item.
The rumours eventually died down since neither party addressed the situation. One year after that, the speculations resurfaced when pictures and clips from Joo Yeon’s Kwai account were leaked online. The pictures and video clips showed the pair’s obviously close relationship, sparking dating rumours once again.
Even with the numerous reports and photos from their alleged dating sessions, both of the K-pop stars’ agencies came forth to shut down all the rumours. As a result, fans were left frustrated with the vague statements. They insisted that the two were dating and felt that they were unable to acknowledge their relationship due to GD’s immense popularity.
