A recent flurry of eyewitness accounts has sparked widespread speculation about a romantic rendezvous between BTS‘s V (Kim Taehyung) and BLACKPINK‘s Jennie in the romantic city of Paris.
Social media platforms have been abuzz with a video and photo allegedly capturing the couple’s intimate moments. However, as the story unfolds, it becomes clear that the evidence may not be as it initially appeared.
On the 17th, a video surfaced on Twitter and other social media platforms showing a couple believed to be V and Jennie enjoying a date along the picturesque banks of the Seine River in Paris.
The pair was seen walking hand in hand, with no masks in sight, and displaying affectionate gestures. Interestingly, they were accompanied by individuals suspected to be managers from BTS and BLACKPINK.
Coinciding with the video, a photo depicting V and Jennie sitting by a hotel window, tenderly touching each other’s heads and sharing a kiss on the cheek, spread like wildfire online. Netizens were quick to interpret this as evidence of the couple’s romantic escapade even within their accommodations.
However, subsequent investigations confirmed that the photo capturing V and Jennie kissing was, in fact, taken from a video posted on Douyin (the Chinese version of TikTok) back in March.
The original video showcased a Chinese couple in a hotel room in China, engaging in affectionate gestures while opening the window wide. The couple’s hairstyle and silhouettes bore an uncanny resemblance to V and Jennie, leading to the misunderstanding.
While speculation continues to swirl, both V‘s agency, Big Hit Music (HYBE), and Jennie’s agency, YG Entertainment, have refrained from issuing specific statements regarding the alleged Paris date. Instead, they have provided ambiguous responses, citing difficulties in confirming the reports.
V and Jennie have been no strangers to dating rumors over the past year. This latest incident has only served to fuel the speculation further.
V‘s recent departure for Paris on the 15th, presumably for a fashion photoshoot, and Jennie‘s reported presence in France for the 76th Cannes Film Festival have added to the intrigue surrounding their relationship status.
As news of the alleged Paris date spread, netizens took to social media platforms to express their thoughts and opinions.
Here are some of the comments from netizens:
“If they’re really dating, I’m so happy for them! They would make such a stunning couple!”
“I’m not convinced. Let’s wait for official statements before jumping to conclusions.”
“Wow, the resemblance in that photo is truly uncanny. I can understand why people got fooled.”
“Even if it turns out to be false, I hope V and Jennie find happiness, whether together or individually.”
“It’s their personal life. Let’s respect their privacy and focus on supporting their music.”
