YG's response to Winner Seungyoon's dating rumor explains truth behind Blackpink Jennie and BTS V
SEOUL, SOUTH KOREA: With comeback season being in full swing as the year is on its second and most active leg, there has been a lot of rumors regarding artists. The most recent rumor is about Pentagon's Wooseok who was allegedly spotted smoking an e-cigarette and hanging out with fromis_9. Along with that there is a new rumor that Winner member Seungyoon (Yoon) is dating labelmate and rookie idol/actress Moon Ji-hyo.
On August 17, Korean media reported that Winner's maknae Kang Seungyoon was spotted walking on the street, hand in hand with the rookie actress. According to the rumor, Seungyoon has been seeing Ji-hyo since the two worked together on the Winner member's solo music video for the song 'Born To Love You'. The single was released in March of 2022, and for the two idols to be seen publicly now months later is enough confirmation for fans to believe the rumor.

YG Entertainment's response to Winner Seungyoon's dating rumor
Soon after the rumor started blowing up, fans started asking label YG Entertainment for answers about Seungyoon's relationship with the rookie actress. In response to the photos, YG Entertainment gave a very curt and simple response, saying since the rumor relates to the personal life of their artists, it is not possible for them to confirm the truth behind it.
Does this prove Blackpink Jennie and BTS V are dating?
Back in May of 2022, two of the biggest K-pop groups saw another dating rumor where Blackpink's Jennie was rumored to be dating BTS' V (Kim Taehyung). After some witness photos of the two idols allegedly driving around together at Jeju island surfaced, fans demanded a response from YG Entertainment and Big Hit Music (HYBE), respectively.
HYBE remained tight-lipped about the rumor and refrained from making a statement about it, but YG Entertainment's response did cause chaos. In their statement, YG Entertainment stated that they had nothing to say about the issue and explained that they will come up with a different response when they learn more about it.
Does YG Entertainment only respond to true dating rumors?
Given the past track record of YG Entertainment, when it comes to dating rumors and statements regarding the dating lives of their artists, fans have noticed that the label often addresses only rumors that have some truth behind them. With YG Entertainment only responding to Blackpink Jennie's relationship with EXO Kai and now Winner Seungyoon's relationship with Moon Ji-hyo, a theory says that Jennie and V were indeed together at the time.
Over the years, YG Entertainment has completely ignored dating rumors about their artists when the claims had been groundless. With Blackpink's Jennie, who was rumored to be dating GDragon many times, YG Entertainment paid no heed to it. Moreover, Big Hit Music, which chose to remain silent about V's dating rumor, had a speedy response to BTS leader RM's fake wedding rumor.
Fans believe this too as one said, "In YG, when they refuse to comment on dating news, it’s 99% true. They don’t really confirm unless the other party comments on it lol. Their statements have always been “it’s their private life”. But fans are still…in denial 😂 esp Blackpink fans." One more fan asked, "I think she dated gd but her rumors with v isn't true?" One responded, "There's a photo of them together tho, it's most likely true too but as much as i want them to be bold too, it's probably better that a big chunk of the fandoms is in denial/wants to forget it lol." Another fan said, "Lol why not true with V? Not even HYBE denied it."
