Are BTS's Jimin and TWICE's Jeongyeon dating? Fans call their interaction 'most mysterious thing in K-pop'
Are BTS' Jimin and TWICE's Jeongyeon dating? According to fans of both the K-pop groups, they just might be. After clips of Jimin and Jeongyeon seemingly interacting went viral, fans of both the idols started to ship them. In these clips, the idols seem like they can't stand being in the same room together. In one of the clips, Jimin appears to be giving Jeongyeon a look when she begins singing along with BTS.
These clips are from the Korean show 'Music Bank' where BTS and TWICE were together backstage promoting each other's songs. While all other members of TWICE looked excited, Jeongyeon seemed uninspired and didn’t smile when BTS appeared. Then, in the clips doing the rounds, Jimin glanced at Jeongyeon while the TWICE star, staying silent, showed no interest in Jimin. This led to the fandoms of both groups to conclude that they're either dating or having a beef.
Furthermore, as the show progressed and BTS appeared on the television screen, all members of TWICE smiled except Jeongyeon. She didn't even look at the television screen while Jimin was on it. Jeongyeon's flat and uninterested expression gave rise to more rumors. Another moment that caught the fans' attention was when members of the two groups greeted each other. Each of them faced and greeted the other, but when Jeongyeon faced Jimin, she passed him and didn’t bow. This made fans even more curious.
Throughout the show, Jimin and Jeongyeon were seen making eye contact several times. Fans even noticed that the two stars were quick to look away each time their eyes met and whenever they faced each other. Later in the show, when the two groups were seated and Jimin sat behind Jeongyeon, she immediately moved to another place. While many of these incidents point towards animosity of some sort between the two, there are occurrences that suggest that Jimin and Jeongyeon share a friendly relationship. For instance, during the show, Jimin, when asked to draw, drew a dog character in an army suit which fans thought looked like Jeongyeon. She was also seen making eye contact and smiling at Jimin. This moment transpired quickly before the two stars started to act as though nothing happened.
One fan on Twitter wrote, "Something between Jeongyeon and Jimin probably be the most mysterious thing in the K-pop industry," while another rhetorically asked, "Please tell are Jimin and Jeongyeon dating?" A different fan added, "First of all the cat and mouse couple of the year Jeongyeon and Jimin. Love them. Absolutely adore them. Can't live without them. They were my bias before I knew about the little joke between their fandoms XD Also pray for Jeongyeon's health...I'll be sad till she gets better," while another tweeted, "Ain't nobody finna tell me that Jeongyeon and Jimin ain't have beef. They are lookin' at each other like."
