On May 24, Jennie and Kim Taehyung (aka V) of BTS were thrust into the spotlight when photos that appeared to show V and Jennie driving together on Jeju Island were posted on a fan's Instagram Story and began circulating. Information on the pair's relationship is murky as they both keep their personal life private, and it's unclear if the photos are authentic or not. YG Entertainment kind of (but barely) addressed the rumors in a statement (via Soompi), saying, "We have nothing to say."
In late August, more photos that appeared to show Jennie and V hanging out together leaked, including photos of Jennie hanging out as V gets his hair styled and the pair posing in front of a mirror looking cozy. While there continue to be doubts among fans about the authenticity of the photos, other fans have pointed out details in the photos may suggest they're real, like the fact that V is wearing the same outfit he wore to the airport on June 23 in the dressing-room picture, and the mirror Jennie and V posed in is the same one V often poses in front of in his personal Instagram photos. POPSUGAR was not immediately able to reach reps for Jennie for comment.
Adding fuel to the fire of speculation is the fact that V's label, Hybe, has not made any direct comment to shut down the rumors. Considering Hybe usually shuts down fake dating rumors swiftly, fans are more curious than ever, wondering if the speculation surrounding Jennie and V might have truth to it.
