According to South China Morning PostRumors began on May 23 when a photo surfaced on social media of the two K-pop idols reportedly driving around Jeju Island together.

She also said that many of the T’way employees thought they were dating in public because they were traveling outdoors together. The worker reportedly made the statement on a messaging app called Blind, which is used anonymously by South Korean employees..
Despite the messages some fans think the photo is photoshopped and the image of V driving may have been a screenshot from BTS’ reality show ‘BTS In The SOOP’, which airs on Weverse.
