Alleged real photo of BTS V and J-Hope during ‘In The Soop’
While netizens refuted the claims from both fandoms, stating that such a photo is difficult to edit due to the lighting and shadows, more so in a moving car.
In addition, they explained that V was wearing a different shirt during his alleged Jeju trip from when he was there with J-Hope and the rest of BTS for “In The Soop.”
In fact, this isn’t the first time that V and Jennie were caught in a dating rumor. Back in December 2021, V accidentally followed Jennie on Instagram, but quickly unfollowed her after.

YG Entertainment said, “We have nothing to say [regarding the matter]. We will inform you if we have a different response to share.”
