Probably because of the Kpop singer getting enlisted in the South Korean Military Service. Keeping that aside, what’s more concerning to the fans is whether Jennie has this new love interest, model- Lee Joo Hyung, in his life.
Starting from the basics, Lee Joo Hyung is a South Korean actor and model. Did you not watch Parasite? A few days back, more precisely on 2 December, he celebrated his 28th birthday. Well, that means him to have been born in 1995. When it comes to Lee Joo Hyung’s notable acting credits, you must watch- Tomorrow’s Cantabile and Madame Antoine: The Love Therapist.
In the 2018 drama series My First Love, Lee Joo Hyung portrayed the character of Choo Geun-Deok. Despite being a fan, not everyone knows that he started playing flute at a very young age. His parents wished him to pursue music, but he did modeling and acting. However, Lee Joo Hyung is successful today.
On the other hand, Jennie from Blackpink is not just famous for her rap skills but also for her cute smile. Next month, she will turn 28. From the very start, she was associated with YG Entertainment’s girl group – Blackpink, alongside Jisoo, Lisa, and Rose.
Concerning Jennie’s solo career, her single “You & Me,” released this year, earned massive success. This year, she also made her acting debut in the series- The Idol as Jennie Ruby Jane.
Moving on with the speculation of Lee Joo Hyung and Jennie’s reported relationship, it all started following the Parasite actor’s 28th birthday bash. To be more precise, the Solo singer attended and had a good time with him on his special day. So, what’s cooking between them? Here is everything about the validity of Lee Joo Hyung and Jennie’s dating rumors.
Lee Joo Hyung And Jennie Dating: How True Are The Rumors?
The answer is – No. The rumors about Lee Joo Hyung and Jennie’s relationship seem to be false. Neither of them has made any official statement or even got spotted being goofy or doing PDA.
Attending a birthday bash right after a breakup is a very poor form of proving the person to have jumped on to another relationship. It’s simply vague.
One must note it was not Jennie’s first time attending Lee Joo Hyung’s birthday bash. What does that mean? The fans wondering should know that the Blackpink rapper also spent time with Lee Joo Hyung on his 27th birthday. That means- last year. So, in another way, we may say that it was her second time in a row.
Jennie and Lee Joo Hyung are considered to be best friends in the Korean entertainment industry.
The speculation of the two dating was initiated after Jennie posted “Happy Birthday.” She added, “My cute friend. Today is the happiest day ever!!!” on her Instagram account. The rumors were fueled when she added selfies of the two.
The pictures showcased Jennie and Lee Joo Hyung to have visited a luxury brand store together. In general, it looked more like a shopping date for the besties. Guess what? When it comes to their attire, both kept it pretty simple. Jennie wore a cute blue colored sweater paired with jeans.
Some loved Jennie and Lee Joo Hyung’s cute friendship. Some people didn’t like it much and even posted harsh comments, especially about the Blackpink singer. One person commented, “I think there should be awards for famous Korean couples. V and Jennie will receive a Daesang for the messiest relationship.” Another said, “V is about to enlist, so of course, Jennie won’t sleep alone for the next year and a half.”
On the other hand, some of Jennie’s fans, more precisely the Blinks, defended her. They questioned the opponent people (who commented harsh words on her) if men and women are not allowed to be friends in Korea. One said, ” Stop these toxic comments.
People of the opposite sex can still be friends. These two are celebrating their birthdays, and things get complicated with bad words. Those people are sick.”
Overall, it’s safe to say that Jennie and Lee Joo Hyung are not dating. They are just very good friends in reality and have never even shared a romance. Also, it has nothing to do with Jennie’s reported break up with V. Both these things are different and should not be compared.
