K-pop idols BTS’ V and BLACKPINK’s Jennie have been swept up in dating rumors after an alleged photo of them together in Jeju Island surfaced online.

The photo, uploaded by an Instagram account, showed people who looked like V and Jennie in a car. V is driving and Jennie is beside him.

“Today’s hot photo. I don’t know if they’re just lookalikes, but two top idol stars were spotted together in Jeju island,” the uploader posted, according to SBS News.

It added, “The top female idol was recently involved in break up rumors with a male OG idol, so fans are believing in this even more. I will keep the names hidden for now since it has not been confirmed as fact yet.”

In February last year, Big Bang’s G-Dragon and Jennie were rumored to be in a relationship, according to a report by Korean media outlet Dispatch.

YG Entertainment, the agency of the two stars, said then, “It is difficult for the company to confirm as it is the artists’ personal life. We ask for your understanding.”

Rumors of the alleged breakup of G-Dragon and Jennie earlier surfaced after his private Instagram account unfollowed her account.

Last December, BTS members launched their personal Instagram account, which amassed millions of followers.

On Dec. 7, fans noticed that V followed Jennie’s Instagram account. This created talks among fans and V unfollowed Jennie.

On the fan community app Weverse, V posted, “Is there a way to get rid of the ‘recommended’ list on Instagram? It’s a scary app,” according to SBS News.

The agencies of the two stars have not yet issued statement about the rumors as of this writing.
