The former After School member was previously swept up in numerous dating rumors with the BIGBANG member. The speculations first broke out back in 2016, after hawk-like fans noticed the undeniable similarity between several photos that were uploaded onto their separate Instagram accounts. They claimed that the backgrounds of the photos placed the two idols at the same location at the same time. Fans quickly concluded that they were involved romantically and were traveling together as a couple. This first photo was uploaded by Lee Joo Yeon…
…and this photo was uploaded by G-Dragon.
Fans held onto their theories about the two, but the rumors eventually died down since neither party addressed them. A year later, the speculations were reignited when photos and videos from Lee Joo Yeon’s Kwai account were leaked online. The pictures and video clips showed the two’s obviously close relationship, which only seemed to confirm what fans knew all along.
Even with the numerous reports and photos from their alleged dates, however, their agencies denied the rumors. Fans were left unsatisfied after the vague denials and continued to believe that the two were together, but couldn’t admit to their relationship due to G-Dragon’s immense global popularity.
With their history, netizens are now speculating that Lee Joo Yeon’s Instagram posts were shots directed at G-Dragon and how he handled their alleged relationship in light of his new dating rumors.
