SEOUL, SOUTH KOREA: A new day comes with a new alleged leaked photo from user @gurumiharibo on Twitter. The account has been notoriously posting photographs of Blackpink's Jennie and BTS V (Kim Taehyung) now, months after the two idols were initially rumored to be dating when they were in Jeju Island. In May 2022, an alleged photo of V and Jennie in a car at Jeju Island was released online starting a shocking dating rumor. After this, fans started reaching out to the respective labels to release a statement. While HYBE did not speak over the issue, YG Entertainment did release a curt statement saying that since this was about Jennie's private life, they did not have any responsibility for speaking about it.

Months following that, a new photo was "leaked" from a Twitter user @gurumiharibo where Jennie and V were seen together as the former took a mirror selfie while the latter was getting ready in a dressing room ahead of his trip to Paris for the Celine show. Considering the fact that fans had never seen the original images of neither V nor Jennie, it was believed that gurumiharibo was a hacker that hacked into the artists' iCloud and leaked an original photo taken by Jennie. On August 24, the user released another photo of the two idols standing beside each other in what seems like Taehyung's house adding more "evidence" to the dating rumor and further causing chaos online.
