Dating Rumors between V and Jennie first surfaced in December 2021 when Kim Taehyung followed and then unfollowed her on Instagram. Later, their pictures from supposedly other dates appeared online. Legal steps were also taken when the pictures leaked. BIGHIT made a statement on issuing criminal complaints against postings with personal attacks and defamation.
Whereas, YG in their statement made in October added, “We have refrained from publicizing the situation or issuing an official statement to minimize any more damage. However, those intimate photos have caused indiscriminate rumours, criticism, personal assaults, sexual harassment, and invasions of privacy.”
What do you think about the current rumour?
