Netizens theorize that BLACKPINK’s Jennie may be featured in the upcoming solo album of BTS’s J-Hope 

Jennie is rumored to be involved in J-Hope’s solo debut. 

The solo debut album “Jack In The Box” of BTS’s J-Hope has been confirmed to be released in mid July. The pre-release b-side track “MORE” is scheduled to be dropped 2 weeks earlier on July 1. On June 28, J-Hope shared several concept photos for “MORE”.

Notably, in one of J-Hope’s concept photos, netizens suddenly spotted the word “BLACKPINK” written on a paper. This has immediately created a stir on social media. 

The appearance of “BLACKPINK” in J-Hope’s teaser sparked a theory that there could be a collaboration between these two groups. In particular, Jennie is the BLACKPINK member who is rumored to be featured in J-Hope’s album. This is because, in Jennie’s recent Instagram story, she posted about a “cat in the box”, which somewhat overlaps with J-Hope’s album title “Jack In The Box”.

However, fans have pointed out the “BLACKPINK” in J-Hope’s concept photo is not related to the K-pop girl group, but referring to an Australian boy band of the same name.

Recently, dating rumors have continued to arise between BTS and BLACKPINK’s members, from Jennie and V, to Rosé and J-Hope. V and Lisa also made headlines with their co-appearance at CELINE’s fashion show. 

This has made fans and netizens wonder what would happen if a collaboration actually happened between BTS and BLACKPINK, given the fact that they are the biggest K-pop acts right now. In addition to explosive reactions, fan wars are likely to erupt because BTS and BLACKPINK’s fandoms have a history of not getting along.
