After YG Entertainment’s vague response, people claimed that the two were really dating, bringing back their previous interactions and “couple” items.

Daisy is the signature flower of a fashion brand run by G-Dragon with his older sister and the male idol has frequently introduced items using the flower for a long time. This is because the daisy flower was considered his symbol.

People then assumed that the two were fighting over Jennie, as it was also noticed how GD changed his brand’s peaceminusone’s Instagram profile picture with him putting the middle finger up three days after the V-Jennie dating rumor broke out.
