An astute fan has noticed a new clue as to why these lately viral photographs of the two K-pop stars are undoubtedly manipulated, adding fuel to the fire of dating rumours that have been circulating online regarding BTS member V and BLACKPINK member Jennie since March of this year.
What Appear to Be Screenshots of A Video Call
Many have speculated, as has been done before, that the selfies are composites created by very skilled individuals who take great care to make their work appear natural and uncanny. A Twitter user channelled their inner sleuth to shed light on the latest development, in which a group of what appear to be screenshots of a video call were obviously doctored.
They believe that the images came from a combination of a live broadcast, a BANGTANTV vlog, a fansite snap, and old selfies that were then digitally altered. Additionally, they’ve pointed out a significant characteristic that leads many users to suspect the photographs are false.
Noticed a Photoshop Cursor Was Left
The user noticed a Photoshop cursor was left in place on a photo purportedly showing V mingling with Jennie’s pets. It appears like a cat is hiding behind the editing cursor in the area of the photo that depicts V sleeping down at the location that has been identified as Jennie’s mother’s home.
And here’s what another admirer had to say about the snap. However, neither of the K-pop artists’ respective management teams has directly addressed the rumours as of yet. When V was also said to be travelling to meet with Jennie in the USA, YG Entertainment stressed BLACKPINK’s international schedule. But the BTS member has already flown back to South Korea, and the BLACKPINK one is still here.
