This is the scandal that has been shaking the world of K-Pop for a few days: photos have leaked showing Jennie, member of the girl group BLACKPINK, with V, one of the singers of BTS.

The images in question do not show anything compromising, except that they highlight the fact that "idols", the term used to refer to these singers and singers in South Korea, can have a life outside of their career.

A very banal reality that management agencies generally encourage them to hide.

However, faced with the scale of the scandal caused, YG Entertainment, the company which manages the career of the girls band, has already announced that the police have been contacted to find the people who leaked the images.

“The photos that have circulated online have been disseminated illegally, regardless of the intentions behind them and without the consent of the person concerned”, can we read in a press release from YG, relayed by Billboard.

The text specifies that Jennie has since been the subject of online, moral and sexual harassment, and is targeted by “personal attacks”.


YG is willing to go to great lengths to protect the image, but also the well-being, of one of its biggest stars.

In South Korea, the law provides that it is possible to file a complaint against anyone who disseminates defamatory remarks, even if they are true, as recalled by the BBC.

“YG followed the case closely and filed a lawsuit in September after gathering information.

We have refrained from mentioning the matter or making an official statement in order to minimize any further damage.

However, these private photos have given rise to rumors, criticism, personal attacks, sexual harassment and indiscriminate invasions of privacy.

We are now announcing that we will take legal action and rectify the situation,” the statement read.

Neither BLACKPINK nor BTS have commented on the situation.
