Earlier today, a photo began making the rounds online that netizens claim shows BTS‘s V and BLACKPINK‘s Jennie together backstage.
Earlier this year, the two of them were allegedly seen driving together on Jeju Island and sparked dating rumors. Though there has never been a confirmation whether the photos were real or not, or if they even were the two K-Pop idols, the photos sparked a whirlwind of dating rumors.
Now, a new photo has surfaced online that netizens once again claim as evidence of the two stars dating. In this new photograph, a woman is seen taking a mirror photo while V gets his hair styled. Netizens claim that the woman, who has half of her face covered by her phone, is Jennie.
Of course, just like the other alleged photos of the pair, this new picture was met with a lot of disbelief and skepticism. Since Jennie herself appears to be taking the photo, fans wonder how someone else could have received it and shared it with the media.
So far, however, some lean into the theory that it could be real as no one has been able to find pictures that this new photo had been edited from — as of yet. There are also rumors that a “fake friend” could have been the one to leak the photo, but at this time, that’s all they are — rumors.
Some netizens also looked into the clothing and accessories the two were wearing in the photo to add further alleged proof that it could be real. The apparel that the two stars were wearing matched other photos of the two when they were seen in LA at the same time.
Photoshop jobs can be really convincing, however, so there’s no way to prove whether or not these pictures really are true or not. And even if it is real, it’s also not necessarily proof that the two are dating!
Until we have further evidence that more solidly shows if the photos are real or fake, we won’t have any clear answers. YG Entertainment and HYBE have once again remained silent amongst the rumors.
