As reported by Dispatch, in 2012, Jennie made her face known in a music video by G-Dragon. She starred as the heroine of the MV 'That XX', from his solo album 'One of a Kind'.
Their good relationship continued the following years. She participated in the title track of G-Dragon's 2nd full-length album, 'Black', as a featured artist. In 2013, G-Dragon was Jennie's idol, and Jennie was G-Dragon's muse.
In 2021, eight years have passed. What is the relationship between G-Dragon (32) and Jennie (24) now?
BLACKPINK Jennie fell in love. Her lover is her idol, G-Dragon. The two are representative idol singers of YG. They have developed into a senior-junior couple. They have been dating for a year now.
Dispatch witnessed a secret meeting between G-Dragon and Jennie. Their date location is (mostly) the Hannam-dong Luxury Villa, where G-Dragon lives - it was the best place for secret love.
First, G-Dragon's penthouse boasts an independent parking system. There is a separate parking lot in the villa's public parking lot. It has to go through two stages of authentication from passing through the main gate to parking.
There is a private elevator in the penthouse's parking lot. They use a private elevator in the private parking lot to go up to their home. They don't have to come outside, so you don't have to worry about exposure.
Jennie registered to G-Dragon's villa, too. She can pass through the main gate without any certification procedures and enter a dedicated parking lot. She then took a private elevator to the penthouse.
Jennie's dating routine was consistent. During BLACKPINK's promotions, she visited G-Dragon's house first when she finished a schedule. The formula "Schedule->Date->Return" was repeated. She maintained a similar pattern when there was no activity.
Their relationship is an open secret within YG. First of all, Jennie's manager is in charge of "driving" - dropping Jennie off at G-Dragon's and bringing her in. Sometimes, G-Dragon's manager takes over the job.
Last year, as Jennie filmed the music video for BLACKPINK's full album, G-Dragon made a surprise visit to the scene. It was not only an encouragement from a YG senior to his junior, but also G-Dragon's affection for Jennie.
On January 31, the day of BLACKPINK's online concert, Jennie left G-Dragon's house earlier in the day and left for the concert hall. Dispatch could see their dating routine again. G-Dragon's car was also found in KINTEX, where the concert took place.
"In YG, several people are aware of their relationship," a close aide to the two told Dispatch. "Jennie's mother knows about her relationship with G-Dragon."
Whenever rumors of a romantic relationship broke out, YG would stay silent. However, the relationship between the two, which Dispatch witnessed, is a clear love. Instead of obvious responses such as "they are close senior and junior," Dispatch expect a better position from YG.
Regarding the news, YG Entertainment said on February 24 that, "It is difficult for the company to confirm the private personal life of the artists. We ask for your understanding."
