Since this morning, K-pop fans have been fussing over a couple of pics showing BTS’ V (김태형) and BLACKPINK’s Jennie (제니) supposedly on a date. But is it for real, though?
As stated in the photos (as per AllKpop), the two idols were allegedly spotted travelling to Jeju Island together. Netizens soon engaged in a heated debate on social media over the authenticity of these images.

Most fans came forth and insisted that the photos are fake, immediately debunking all the rumours surrounding Jennie and V’s relationship. According to some fans, the viral photos are “photoshopped” images of the latter with J-hope, which were taken from the group’s reality show “In The Soop”.
On the contrary, there were also some who argued that the photos are real. They explained that the two stars were donning different outfits. It is also said that Jennie owns the sunglasses shown in the viral image. Others also went on and claimed that V’s hairstyle, sunglasses, and clothes in the photos are different from the one with J-hope.
Apparently, the rumour of Jennie and V’s relationship came amidst the speculations that the “Solo” singer and her “beau” G-Dragon have broken up. While the two have never confirmed their romance, it has been reported that the two have decided to “call it quits”. It all started after fans noticed that GD had unfollowed Jennie on IG, while still following the other members.
Additionally, some also claimed that the duo parted ways following a fashion event hosted by Chanel (both of them are known among fans as ambassadors for the luxury brand). Here are some of the receipts found by the netizens:
