SEOUL, SOUTH KOREA: K-pop fandom saw something unimagimable in the past few months. With BTS and Blackpink fans clashing ever so often, it was impossible for stan Twitter to witness a day when Blinks (Blackpink fans) and ARMYs (BTS fans) would come to a consensus but the V-Jennie dating rumor has done it for fans. Fans were initially shocked to learn that a photo of V (Kim Taehyung) and Jennie in Jeju Island was floating around the internet. However, when it was revealed that the photo was fake, fans of both groups breathed a sigh of relief.

Not too long after that, there had been more alleged "leaks" of private iCloud photos of the two idols together but eagle-eyed fans did not take too long before figuring out that the photos looked fake. Over the last few weeks, Twitter and Instagram accounts like @gurumiharibo, @rattailbot and now, @theh0ttea have been posting multiple photos of Jennie and V together claiming that the photographs were leaked from their phones. However, it seems like fans are still having a hard time trusting the photos as they think the leaked photos are not authentic.

Are BTS V and Blackpink Jennie photos real?

After the most recent picture featuring Jennie and V was released online on Friday, September 2, fans initially lost their calm as they started believing the rumors. Their concerns went from the authenticity of the dating rumor to the fact that Jennie's iCloud was hacked and the privacy of the Blackpink member along with V was under threat.  


As time passed by, fans started analyzing the pictures. Some fans revealed that the most recent photograph was visibly edited. However, some other fans gave the photos the benefit of the doubt and are now wondering why the hackers were not leaking full pictures of V and Jennie but only resorting to revealing grainy photos with half of their faces visible.

'Come on, we all know it's fake'

Fans are sharing their confusion about the alleged leaked photos as one fan asked, "Guys, can we have an honest discussion for a second? if these pics of taehyung and jennie are real, why does every. single. one. have someones face cut off or not visible??" Another fan said, "That’s what i’m saying??? & i don’t know/look at jennie’s face as well as i do tae’s, but the faces also always seem warped to me?.. idk i obviously don’t care if they are together it’s just i think ppl keep falling for the pics over & over." One fan responded, "That's not even Tae in those pictures especially in that forehead kissing picture the nose is straight when we know tae's nose has a cute round tip."

One fan said, "I remember seeing someone say they worked with gurumi, and I remember wondering why they asked for the photos that they already seen instead of posting it themselves. Maybe gurumi cropped so they couldn’t post without their permission. To keep the 'power.'" It’s confusing honestly." One more fan said, "You cannot tell me Jennie’s iCloud is full of blurry pictures of her and V only. Whoever’s doing this just wants drama and everyone keeps feeding their fire. And Why does the company need to make a statement every week that their not dating? Who cares! Let them be."

One more fan said, "Another thing, I don't think they will take such ugly pictures, I mean, their styles are characterized by being all very aesthetic, and with good quality and resolution." Another fan said, "Lmao exactly either they are blur or completely blocked like cmon we know it's completely fake and edited..look the way they edited tae's face I'm rolling." One fan said, "Agree! Every picture is blur not clear even Jennie using her Iphone to take a picture. Come on, her Phone is Iphone though and why her picture still blur like that?" A fan said, "IKR. Im just waiting for a normal photos of Taehyung and that girl from BP to be released then i will believe. All i see is Selfies,with Masks, Sunglasses and Blurry photos.Even that Jeju island photo is blurred."
