Following SM Entertainment's confirmation of their breakup, netizens left heaps of comment on media outlets that covered the news. From YG Entertainment's perspectives to personal doubts regarding the breakup, a good amount of speculations rippled across the Internet.
Some of the top-voted comments include:
"Did you all think Yang-ssa (CEO Yang Hyun Suk) would just leave them alone LOL"
"They would probably take care of it this way and then date each other behind-the-scenes LOL How does one stop the relationship of two youthful individuals"
"They were already busted. Any fan who left just for that reason alone is already long gone. The two should have been honest to their own feelings, then break up when they really felt the need to. Since they were only publishing this break-up news to try to stealthily read the face of the fans ("walking on egg shells"), this whole thing seems to lack sincerity even more."
In addition, some even hinted that their relationship might even "grow stronger" after this incident, due to a Romeo and Juliet effect.
Meanwhile, some once again mentioned YG's allegedly daunting 7th floor, suggesting that their relationship was probably cut short by Yang Hyun Suk ("Jennie has visited the 7th floor").
As a majority, however, netizens seem to leave comments verging on doubt, that they probably "texted each other even after this 'cover-up'." Any other speculations?
