However, in August the hacker’s name was believed to be Lee Joo-Hyung. He is supposedly a mutual friend of V and Jennie. Furthermore, he allegedly leaked the images in exchange for money.
Furthermore, it is reported that Lee Joo-Hyung also leaked intimate photos of Jennie with BTS member V.
If you didn’t know, Jennie and V dating rumors have been doing the rounds on social media ever since a photo of the two of them vacationing on Jeju Island surfaced online in May 2022.
Subsequently, more photos of the alleged couple have been leaked online as of August. One of the images shows them hanging out in Los Angeles, while another appears to be inside V’s house.

Well not really. You can investigate something and also threaten to take legal action against those who share the private photos. YG r just being useless as usual. It’s gotten to the point where alleged photos of Jennie’s bathtub are being shared… every legitimate company would have done something by now.
