Although they seem to have no connection, BTS’s V and BLACKPINK’s Jennie have a relationship that sparks heated controversy on social media many times.
Starting from edited photos
V and Jennie do not know each other, but their names often appear next to each other ever since BTS – BLACKPINK were at their peak popularity and took over year-end award ceremonies. Although there were not many moments when they shared the same frame, V and Jennie were enthusiastically shipped by fans… Edited photos sometimes look so real that the duo gets involved in dating rumors many times. This is also the beginning of their “relationship”.
How V reacted to BLACKPINK
V used to be called the “king of reactions to BLACKPINK”. The moments when the male idol danced enthusiastically and excitedly while watching BLACKPINK‘s performance went viral all over social media back then and sparked dating rumors.
That’s why members of BTS and BLACKPINK no longer comfortably show their reactions to the stages of each other. It gets even more serious when BTS – BLACKPINK becomes rivals in the Kpop race. However, the collection of V‘s reactions to the YG girl group is still widely spread by Kpop fans over the years, and used by fans as evidence of V and Jennie‘s dating.
Jennie almost bumped into V’s “sensitive parts”
In 2018, Jennie (BLACKPINK) almost bumped into V‘s (BTS) sensitive parts on the encore stage at the Seoul Music Awards. This is an incident that happened because the idols simultaneously stood up after squatting, causing both groups BTS – BLACKPINK to shyly apologize to each other.
V followed Jennie on Instagram, leading to an intense battle between BTS and BLACKPINK’s fandoms
In early December of this year, the incident that V (BTS) accidentally followed Jennie (BLACKPINK) caused a fierce controversy.
Specifically, all 7 members of BTS opened their personal Instagram and attracted a huge number of followers. But just using Instagram for 1 day, V caused controversy when he followed Jennie (BLACKPINK) and quickly unfollowed her after that.
It turns out that when V opened Instagram, Squid Game’s famous actress Jung Ho Yeon pressed the button to follow the BTS member. Meanwhile, Ho Yeon follows Jennie because the two are close friends. For this reason, Jennie’s account showed up in the Instagram suggestions section. Because he was new to this app, the male idol accidentally pressed the follow button and then unfollowed Jennie. The small story suddenly became a showbiz scandal, the famous singer/actor of the HYPE family had to implicitly clarify the problem with a complaint about this mode of Instagram.
