The dating rumors surrounding BLACKPINK's Jennie and BTS's V continue, and eager fans seem to have found out the personality of the alleged leaker. Aside from Gurumi Haribo, who shares the suspected couple's leaked photos, somebody else is behind the leaking.
The rumors about V and Jennie began when a photo of them together, driving on Jeju Island, emerged online in May. It was followed by a number of private images, from a picture in the waiting room to a snap at the BTS member's alleged home. So, where do all of these snaps come from?
AllKpop noted that there are speculations Jennie's private Instagram was hacked, and the photos were leaked from there. Haribo once mentioned the leaker's name, Lee Joo Hyung, in August, and the netizens started investigating who this guy was.
Jennie then blocked all her followers on her alleged personal Instagram and unfollowed everyone. But before she did it, some said she unfollowed one person.
Netizens then found out Lee Joo Hyung was V and Jennie's mutual friend. They believed he was on Jeju Island when the two were there, and he might be the one who took their photos.
Meanwhile, V allegedly attended BLACKPINK's private party for their new album, "Born Pink," and his leaked photos with Jennie are now going viral, per IWMBuzz. The event was held at a cultural complex in Seongsu-dong, Seoul, and was graced by some of Korea's most famous stars, from actors to singers and more.
But aside from attending the event, V also allegedly spent time with all the "Pink Venom" hitmakers. Aside from Jennie, he reportedly bonded with Jisoo, Rose, and Lisa.
In addition, a photo of Jennie on the bathtub leaked online, Meaww cited. The snap was said to be a selfie taken by the "SOLO" hitmaker herself with a black heart emoji.
Some said the snap was fake since her mobile was missing, but others claimed it was real. Fans said the hackers were already dehumanizing her as they invaded her privacy.
This worried BLACKPINK and BTS fans alike, so the two fandoms are now asking their respective labels, YG Entertainment and Big Hit Music, to take appropriate legal action.
K-pop fans are now making "protect Jennie's privacy" trend n Twitter, creating an uproar. They say the dating rumors surrounding V and Jennie are already provoking the group's supporters, stressing it is not a fan war but a fact that the leaks and rumors are getting out of hand and crazy, and it needs to stop now.
