MANILA, Philippines — YG Entertainment, BLACKPINK's talent agency, released a formal response regarding the dating rumors surrounding K-pop icons Jennie of BLACKPINK and V of BTS. 

Over the weekend, an alleged photo of the two stars inside a car reportedly taken in Jeju Island in South Korea made the rounds online, making their fans wonder if Jennie and V were indeed involved romantically. The photo looked like V was driving a car, and Jennie was in the passenger seat. 

In both their respective Instagram pages, the idols indeed went on a trip to Jeju Island, but it seemed like the two went individually and were not actually together. Some fans then investigated and claimed that V’s snap was actually taken from his car, with fellow member J-Hope during BTS’ show "BTS In the Soop" last year. Fans believed that the image was edited.

Meanwhile, as of  this writing, BIGHIT MUSIC, BTS' agency, is yet to give an official statement on the dating rumor.
