Did BTS V really attend Blackpink's listening party for 'Born Pink'? Fans say 'leave them alone'
SEOUL, SOUTH KOREA: Blackpink has finally made their highly anticipated comeback with their second full-length album, 'Born Pink' as well as its lead single, 'Shut Down' which was released on September 16. Just like many other K-pop groups, it was reported that Blackpink hosted a private listening party for their industry friends ahead of the release of the album. Rumor has it that BTS' V (Kim Taehyung), who is alleged to be dating Blackpink's Jennie also attended the private listening party, and now fans are sure something is up between the two idols.
While it is true that it is none of fans' business whether the two idols are seeing each other or not, V-Jennie have been the center of many ARMY and Blinks' focus when it was first alleged that the BTS and Blackpink members were on a secret trip to Jeju Island. With no confirmation or denial from the two labels, fans started calling out HYBE (Big Hit Music) and YG Entertainment for leaving the rumor to blow out of proportion but now, as the rumor is being backed up with more allegations, fans are starting to believe them.
JTBC alleges BTS V attended Blackpink's 'Born Pink' listening party
According to an exclusive report from JTBC, the private listening party held by Blackpink for their new album 'Born Pink' was held on September 14 in Seoul, South Korea. The party was attended by the who's who of the Korean Entertainment Industry including actors, singers, and celebrities who joined in to celebrate Blackpink's first ever full comeback in almost two years. The report claimed that the highly private party was attended by BTS V among other celebrities making it the BTS singer's first public appearance with his alleged girlfriend Jennie.
The report went on to claim that due to the number of people at the event, V kept his distance from the Blackpink rapper and the "couple" acted courteously and formally. The two idols' agency is yet to make an official statement about this issue just like they ignored past allegations which are leading fans to believe the rumors could be true after all. It is true that YG Entertainment artists like BIGBANG and HYBE/Big Hit Music's BTS members were friends.
After BIGBANG's GDragon was spotted around BTS' J-Hope on multiple occasions, fans concluded that idols do not really pay heed to fan wars and continue their friendships in the industry despite the rivalry in their respective fandoms. This was also seen when BTS' V attended the 2022 Paris Fashion Week alongside Blackpink's Lisa as they represented the luxury fashion brand Celine with actor Park Bo-gum. This also means that Blackpink members are truly close friends with BTS members.
