After Son Ye Jin and Hyun Bin from Crash Landing on You confirmed that they were dating earlier this year, yet another power couple has exploded onto the scene.

South Korean news outlet Dispatch reported today that BIGBANG’s G-Dragon and Blackpink’s Jennie have been in a relationship for a year. They apparently met in secret and often had their dates at home.

Their relationship was apparently an open secret at the duo’s label YG Entertainment, and Jennie’s manager would take her to and from G-Dragon’s luxury penthouse apartment in Hannam-dong after her daily schedule and activities were done. Sometimes, it was G-Dragon’s manager who chauffeured her instead.

Dispatch also spotted Jennie leaving G-Dragon’s home on 31 January and heading toward’s Blackpink’s online concert venue.

Sources close to the singers told Dispatch that “quite a lot of people at YG have noticed their relationship,” adding, “Jennie’s mother is also aware of her relationship with G-Dragon. She’s thankful that he takes special care of her.”

According to Soompi, YG said in a statement in response to the allegations, ‘’We cannot confirm anything about our artists’ personal lives. We ask for your understanding.’’

This news comes in the wake of the highly scrutinised breakup between Jennie and EXO’s Kai in 2019, when the couple had only been dating for a month after they were photographed on a date by a media outlet.

G-Dragon reportedly previously dated former K-pop group Afterschool member Lee Yoo Jeon in 2018, and the two were photographed travelling to Jeju island. However, the couple denied the rumours, with their label YG Entertainment stating that they were just colleagues.
