Big Hit Entertainment has released a statement about Jungkook’s dating rumors, stating:
Big Hit Entertainment clearly states that the claims about our artist Jungkook that are being spread on social media and online communities are not true.
While in Geoje Island during his period of rest, he found out that his acquaintances from a tattoo shop were also visiting the area. He then met with his tattoo shop acquaintances and other acquaintances from Geoje Island for a meal and had a karaoke session. This is the truth that has been distorted.
We think it is unfortunate that [Jungkook’s] personal daily life during his period of rest became known in a distorted way.
We will figure out whether CCTV footage was leaked or if there was illegal filming and take strong legal action against the disclosure of personal information and invasion of privacy. Furthermore, we announce that we will also take legal action against the spread of false rumors.
On September 17, the tattoo artist shared the following post via Instagram:
I am absolutely not in a relationship with Jungkook.
I am posting this because of the words spreading online and the unfortunate situation of people causing misunderstandings by impersonating me.
I didn’t say anything because it was the obvious truth that people would not believe me, interpret [my words] as they wish, and that I would receive even harsher replies.
I would like to once again state that it is absolutely not true that I am dating Jungkook or that I tattooed my initials on him.
We are simply close friends, and I am very apologetic as it seems that fans were extremely hurt in addition to myself and people around me.
I will not say anything further.
I would just like to make it clear that I was not ignoring or disregarding everything.
