Relationship timeline

According to Dispatch, the YG couple has been in a stable relationship for a year where Jennie visits G-Dragon’s house after her schedule gets over. Sometimes Jennie’s manager is also seen dropping her off or G-Dragon’s manager seen giving her a ride. Jennie was also spotted leaving G-Dragon’s house on the day of Blackpink’s virtual concert ‘The Show’ in the morning. The report has stated that one of G-Dragon’s cars was at the venue of ‘The Show’.

Speaking of the relationship, a close source of Jennie and GD has commented that the relationship is pretty public within the company. The source said, “Quite a lot of people at YG have noticed their relationship,” and added, “Jennie’s mother is also aware of her relationship with G-Dragon. She’s thankful that he takes special care of her.”

YG Entertainment has officially commented, “We can not confirm anything about our artists’ personal lives. We ask for your understanding.”


Prior to this, Dispatch once revealed that Blackpink's Jennie and SM Entertainment's deemed EXO K-pop star Kai were dating. The shortlived alleged romance ended only after four months due to high work pressure, SM Entertainment told a news publication. Though the duo never talked about their relationship clearly, fans picked up plenty of clues and some of them were heart-melting. For example, one time Jennie took to Instagram to share snaps of a romantic evening in Paris with the caption, “Had the most romantic dinner admiring the eiffel tower 🗼❣️ #happyjen’, and a day later, Kai shared a number of pictures almost in the same locations. Fans didn’t take time to put two and two together. Take a look at the snaps below.
