Blackpink’s Jennie and BTS’ V seemingly confirmed their long-rumored romance after they were filmed holding hands on a walk in Paris this week. Now, their entertainment agencies YG (Jennie’s) and HYBE (V’s) have broken their silence on the 2 idols’ relationship status—but they neither confirmed nor denied their romantic connection. The agencies told Sports Seoul, via Soompi, “It’s difficult to envision [regarding this matter on the artists’ private lives].”
Their comment this week echoes the comment YG Entertainment made regarding the speculated couple’s relationship last May when photos surfaced of them seemingly driving on Jeju island together. YG Entertainment told press on the time that “we have now nothing to say [regarding this matter]. We are going to inform you if we have now a distinct response to share.”
French journalist Amar Taoualit shared the video of the couple, whom he wrote was Jennie and V, walking within the French city on his TikTok. He confirmed to fans that messaged him that it really was the Blackpink and BTS singers:

Jennie is in France for the Cannes Film Festival, where the The Idol will premiere. It’s her first acting role.
The singer spoke to ELLE in November about how she de-stresses amid all her projects. While she didn’t mention her love life, she did discuss the role her family members play in her life. “For the past few years, having my close friends, having my family around, and just attempting to balance that work life and private life was very vital for me,” she said. “Because when you get caught in a single life, if that’s not balanced, I feel that’s when all the things starts collapsing. I don’t think one specific thing could de-stress me, because we’ve got something happening each moment, but keeping a positive mind, just taking good care of your mental health and your body, is unquestionably something that I do…. I meditate, stretch, read, sleep.”
