Yesterday (Wednesday, 14th October), Kim Tae Hyung (김태형), or famously known as V, from BTS became embroiled in dating rumours after he was spotted attending the VVIP preview event for the Korea International Art Fair (KIAF) 2021.
The idol wasn’t alone at that time. V was accompanied by Choi Yoon Jung, the chairman of the Paradise Culture Foundation, who’s also the wife of the Paradise Group president Phillip Jeon. The couple’s daughter was also seen at the event with V and chairman Choi.
Since then, rumours began swirling around claiming that BTS’s V was in a relationship with the daughter of the aforementioned business magnates. Adding in the speculation, several hawk-eyed netizens went on to claim that the bracelet worn by the “Dynamite” hit-maker was in fact, from a fashion brand launched by Phillip Jeon’s daughter.
On that day itself, a representative of BTS’ agency HYBE Labels quickly issued their response to the circulating claims. They briefly stated, “V and the family of chairman Choi Yoon Jung are only acquaintances, the dating rumours are not true.”
Following this, it appears that the globally loved singer has also broken his silence on the recent allegations. “I’m going to shoot poison needles at the back of their necks. Watch out for your backs. Puk Puk (stabbing sound),” V wrote on Weverse, seemingly enraged and even annoyed by these rumours.
Another post by the Daegu-born singer reads, “So pathetic. I want to sing ‘Ugh’.” For those in the dark, “Ugh” (욱) is a track contained in the Billboard chart-toppers‘ “MAP OF THE SOUL: 7” album. As per AllKpop, the song is a rap track that uses wordplay to express anger towards evil and injustice.
