BTS’s V, BLACKPINK’s Lisa and actor Park Bo-gum made headlines with their appearance at the CELINE fashion show in Paris. Soon after, reports began circulating that the three popular South Korean artists travelled together on the same plane (apparently) owned by the female idol.
V (real name Kim Tae Hyung) first took to his socials to share a few pics of him posing inside and outside the plane, drawing keen attention among netizens. Shortly afterwards, both Lisa and Bo Gum also uploaded photos of them during their trip in the private jet.

On top of that, the public’s interest in these photos increased after rumours broke out that the private jet was apparently rented by the “Lovesick Girls” singer. Some netizens began to claim that both V and his bestie Bo Gum were invited by Lisa to take a ride on the private plane due to the influence of her BLACKPINK groupmate Jennie. For those in the dark, the 26-year-old idol was swept in a dating rumor with V last month.
In addition, a plane engineer named Josh Jung also shared a photo of the plane’s interior on his IG, and tagged the Thai idol. Many were left wondering on why he had only tagged Lisa in his posting, and left out the other two celebs. Josh later clarified that he came onboard the plane that Lisa “bought”. As a result, a lot of fans speculated that the 25-year-old had either bought or rented the private jet.
Just as the curious netizens were getting into it, it was later revealed that the rumour is, in fact, false. According to SBS News, the private plane that the three used for their trip to France was provided by CELINE, and not purchased privately by Lisa.
