It was previously reported that both BLACKPINK‘s Jennie and BTS‘s V were traveling to New York. V had left on August 24, 2022, and Korean media outlets had published news that they were both traveling to the same city, just a day apart from each other. As many know by now, the two have been embroiled in dating rumors that were neither denied nor confirmed by their agencies.
On August 24, 2022, YG Entertainment denied the news reports that the two were traveling together. In a statement given to Korean news outlets, the company explained that BLACKPINK would be traveling as a group to New York for official business, but would be returning separately due to their various work schedules.
BLACKPINK will leave the country on August 25, where they will undergo various busy schedules to promote their second full-length album and a performance at the MTV VMAs.
