As the youngest member of BTS and the main vocalist, it's no surprise that Jungkook (born Jeon Jung-kook) has been the subject of several dating rumors. He's previously been linked to fellow K-Pop stars Yein from Lovelyz, Chaeyeon from DIA, and Ko So-hyun, a trainee from Cube, though there is no substantial proof that Jungkook dated any of those ladies.
Most recently, in September 2019, it was rumored that Jungkook was seeing Lee Mi-joo, a tattoo artist who worked at a parlor Jungkook visited. In response, Big Hit Entertainment released a statement saying that Jungkook and Lee Mi-joo were merely friends. "During his visit to Geojedo, he realized his circle of tattooist acquaintances was also visiting there, so he hung out with them," the record label said. "We are sorry that his private life during his extended break had to be distorted like this." Lee Mi-joo also gave a statement denying the rumors after she started receiving online hate from BTS fans.
