Many believe Jennie was bluffing about her ideal type with these dating rumors. V is considered one of the most handsome men in the industry. In fact, back in 2017, V was named “The Most Handsome Face” by TC Candler.

Many are now questioning what Jennie’s ideal type is and wondering how V looks in her eyes. Others are stating that the ideal type she previously stated may hurt V if he were to discover it.

HYBE Labels (V’s company) and YG Entertainment (Jennie’s company) have yet to confirm or deny the dating rumors. Many believe the photos are real and that Jennie’s private social media accounts were hacked. Others speculate that the images are edited but cannot figure out the source if they were edited.
