As reported earlier, BTS's V was publicly spotted by numerous people after attending the VVIP preview event for the 'Korea International Art Fair (KIAF) 2021' opening. It was then revealed that V was accompanied on this day by the 'Paradise Group' family, including the chairman of the board, Choi Yoon Jung, and the 'Paradise Group' president's wife and their daughter. This is the reason why some netizens went on to raise speculation that V was dating the 'Paradise Group' president's daughter.
V's agency HYBE Labels released a statement denying the speculations and dating rumors. The idol also personally responded through Weverse, expressing his anger and frustration. V referred to BTS's diss-track "UGH" to explain how he felt about the rumors and articles that were being spread online.
BTS fans also banded together to bring their arguments to the table as to why V cannot be dating the 'Paradise Group' president's daughter. Fans took to social media to share evidence and their reasonings why BTS's V isn't dating.
One fan explained that V was already seen at the 'Korea International Art Fair (KIAF)' back in 2019. The fan explained, "Taehyung (V) already attended the KIAF in 2019. That place is an open space and a lot of people attend that event (there were photos of him posted in 2019 and showed the artworks he purchased.) Does it make sense that he would bring his girlfriend to such a place where a lot of people gather?"
The fan explained that BTS had performed at the 'Paradise Hotel' a few times and had a prior relationship with the 'Paradise Group' family. In addition, the family is also acquaintances with other celebrities and maintains friendships with them.
The fan continued to explain that the bracelets designed by the daughter of 'Paradise Group' are also worn by other celebrities as well. The fan explained, "The bracelet is from Peakpick and the brand is worn a lot by celebrities. And an acquaintance of 'Paradise Group' will buy one or two things from the brand or are gifted a few items."
The fan also included photos from the 'Korea International Art Fair (KIAF) 2021' opening event showing that there were crowds of people at the event. In addition, the fan explained that V was seen walking around the exhibit alone. The fan went on to warn anti-fans not to spread false information and that there were reporters at the event. Therefore, V would not boldly attend the event with his girlfriend, knowing reporters and photographers would be there.
