After months of a social media user-Gurumi, posting pictures claiming that they are of BTS's Taehyung and Blackpink's Jennie and that the duo is dating, Hybe has released a statement. Taehyung's group mate Jin also reacted to the same. 


Recently, new photos that were apparently of Taehyung and Jennie, that showed them enjoying a romantic date at a restaurant had been leaked and went viral.  The social media user claimed that the photos had been posted on their private account, with the caption, "You're my other half".



Hybe's statement read, “Hello. This is BigHit Music. Our company regularly initiates legal proceedings against perpetrators of malicious activities related to BTS, including defamation, personal attacks, sexual harassment, the spread of groundless information, and ill-intentioned criticism. We would like to provide an update on these activities. We have recently filed additional criminal complaints against postings with personal attacks and defamation using new information provided by fans as well as collected through our monitoring initiatives. We have found multiple defamation postings containing false information about the artists on platforms in and outside of Korea. We also have found that a specific poster has been spreading the same ill-intentioned rumour in multiple platforms and filed a criminal complaint against the poster after gathering all of the repetitively uploaded postings. We are currently following our legal response process which monitors and collects evidence on malicious postings for 365 days and then includes them on the complaint. Active reporting of our fans has been a big help to our malicious postings monitoring initiatives. We would also like to share with you that after an extended police investigation, we were able to identify the suspect and the case has been sent to the prosecutor’s office. Big Hit regularly collects information on malicious postings regarding BTS, reports them to the authorities and files criminal complaints. We would like to stress that we will continue to initiate strict measures to ensure that these malicious acts are not repeated, and our policy of no settlement and no leniency remains in effect. We ask that you make continued use of our hotline (protect@bighitmusic.co.kr) to report any cases of abuse. We will continue to work to ensure that the rights of our artists are fully protected. Thank you."


BTS member Jin reacted by posting, "What did the haters do to be sent to prosecutors? They’re asking for trouble."
