Blackpink Fans React To The Rumors About Jennie's New Relationship

As the leading girl group of the K-pop scene, Blackpink has been dubbed the "biggest girl band in the world," per Vogue. Its members — Jennie, Jisoo, Rosé, and Lisa — have captured the attention of millions of fans who follow their every move and help them break multiple world records by watching their music videos (via Billboard). The group's success can be attributed to their catchy hit songs, which have a hip-hop flair with Jennie and Lisa taking on the rapping duties, but they're also loved for their "powerful singing and chic-styling," as per Time.

In addition to their vocal prowess and stage presence, Blackpink are also extremely popular on social media with 34.9 million Instagram followers. It is no wonder that their fans, affectionately known as "Blinks," went crazy on social media about Jennie's new relationship with label mate and "King of K-Pop" G-Dragon on Feb. 24, 2021. Scroll down to see how they reacted to the news of Korea's newest power couple.

Fan reactions to Jennie and G-Dragon's relationship have been mixed

When Korean media outlet Dispatch (via Allkpop) reported on Feb. 24, 2021, that Blackpink's Jennie had been dating fellow Korean superstar G-Dragon for at least a year, fans were shocked because K-pop stars' personal lives are largely kept under wraps. Unlike Western celebrities who often disclose their romances on social media, K-pop stars "are often forbidden from disclosing personal details, with some even having a 'no dating' clause in their contracts," CNN reported. However, it seems like Jennie and G-Dragon's management does not have a no-dating clause as they did not deny their relationship, issuing out a statement that read, "We cannot confirm anything about our artists' personal lives. We ask for your understanding," according to Soompi.

Blinks, though, made their opinions heard on Twitter. "It's perfectly fine if they are dating seriously," one user wrote. "But the hate Jennie will receive from this again." Another user was more skeptical and tweeted, "me trying to explain why jennie and g-dragon aren't actually dating," with a meme video of a man explaining formulas on a white board. Other users joked that Jennie and G-Dragon are somewhat of a Chanel love team because both of them are ambassadors for the French fashion house.

As of this writing, the rumored couple has not responded to the relationship rumors, but they sure have made their fans crazy over the news.
