1. Jeju Island

Speculation about V and Jennie’s rumored relationship began in December of 2021 after V accidentally followed Jennie’s Instagram account. The first leaked “dating photo,” however, did not surface until May of 2022. At the time, several Korean media outlets reported that the stars had spent time together on Jeju Island, a popular vacation destination for couples, friends, family, and tourists.

This is a photo that was sent in today. It might be they’re lookalikes, but it is allegedly a photo of two top idols. The female idol, in particular, has been rumored to have broken up with an OG idol member. So fans seem to be more receptive to this photo as true. We won’t name any names as we are not able to fact-check the photo.

While waiting for an official statement, fans closely studied the car photo for editing flaws and scoured the internet for photos that could have been doctored.ARMYs pointed out the similarity between the car photo and a scene with V andJ-HopefromBTS’s vacation reality series, BTS In the SOOP.

BLINKs, on the other hand, pointed out that the woman in the photo is wearing Jennie’s GENTLE MONSTER sunglasses, but her hair color did not match the color that Jennie had at the time while visiting Jeju.

In response to the photo, YG Entertainment released the following statement:

We have nothing to say.

2. Backstage Mirror Selfie

This week, the first of three new photos of the alleged couple went viral online. In it, a woman who appears to be Jennie snaps a photo of V as a stylist curls his hair.

Unlike the Jeju Island photo, fans could not immediately find existing shots of V and Jennie that disproved the “edited” photo’s authenticity. Some fans suspected that the mirror selfie was a real dating photo that had been stolen from Jennie’s phone, while others believe the photo could have combined two separate, privately taken photos to create a single “lovestagram” shot. Since fans wouldn’t have access to the original photos, any photo manipulation would be difficult to prove.

As some netizens have pointed out, however, Jennie and V were both in Los Angeles at the same time, wearing the accessories seen in the alleged lovstagram photo.

3. V’s Apartment

The second new “dating photo” of V and Jennie was posted online by user @gurumiharibo, the same person who released the mirror selfie. It shows Jennie and V dressed in matching clothes in the hallway of V’s apartment.

The apartment does appear to be the same one V posted a photo of on his own Instagram.Once again, fans have struggled to locate the original photo(s), but that does not necessarily mean this photo is 100% authentic.

In a detailed thread, Twitter userNeon claims that the photos’ original poster (OP) edited the images to turn a profit. To get to the bottom of the situation, Neon approached the OP via email as a potential customer. They offered to pay the OP to edit two celebrities together; the OP was interested in accepting the job in exchange for a three-figure sum.

⚠️ THREAD : THE DARK TRUTH ABOUT GURUMIHARIBO ⚠️
I send them an email saying I was looking for an edit to create a new scandal. I also let them know that if I was wrong about them, they should just ignore my email. However they replied asking which members I wanted to involve AND

HERE’S THE SCREENRECORDING OF THE EMAILS. IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS PLEASE DON’T CONTACT ME ON MY MAIL ADDRESS. I tried to keep pretending with a last email but then never replied pic.twitter.com/0kJzMwu1xy

If the photos are fake, it’s a sophisticated job that could have involved the use of real, private photos or editing V and Jennie’s heads onto strangers’ bodies. Even the most skilled photo editors can, however, make errors. Some netizens have zeroed in on editing blunders that they say should discredit the photos.

Since then, fan-detectives have compared details from the reflection to V’s apartment, but nothing about Jennie’s location or her decision to erase it has been confirmed.
