Netizens went on to say that the two were on Jeju Island. This almost immediately started dating rumors. K-Pop fans started to assume that the two were dating and were traveling together.


Though instead of feeling one main opinion, netizens were divided regarding the dating rumors. 

ARMYs went on to defend V by saying that the photos were edited. The BTS member's fans shared that the familiar photo was from BTS's reality program entitled "In The Soop." In the show, V had a little car ride with fellow BTS member J-Hope.


BLINKs told somewhat of a different story. The fans confirmed that Jennie did own a similar pair of glasses. But beyond that, BLINKs also went on to question the photos featuring the BTS member and BLACKPINK member.

Some netizens agreed and shared that the photos were not edited. The reason for this was because of the authentic lighting and shadows. Furthermore, BTS' V was wearing a different set of clothing on his supposed trip to Jeju compared to what he rocked on the BTS reality show

Adding to that, other K-Pop fans noted that if the two idols were dating, they would actually be happy. Previously in December of 2021, both V and Jennie were already plagued with dating rumors. This began when V "accidentally" followed Jennie's Instagram account.

Some fans even went on to speculate that the dating rumors between the two idols were convenient. Most netizens are aware of the flack LE SSERAFIM has been getting mainly due to member Kim Garam. Thus some fans believe that the rumor is nothing but a cover-up.

Fans also found it hilarious how YG Entertainment plainly reacted to the dating rumor.

"We have nothing to say," YG Entertainment announced.

On the other side of the fence, HYBE has not released any statement regarding the matter.
