Since then, more photos were leaked after a hacking incident, and additional intimate photos of Jennie and V circulated online. The photos were mainly leaked by a Twitter user under the name of gurumiharibo, starting with one of Jennie taking a photo of V in a waiting room, and that was followed by photos of the two idols taking a photo at V's home.
With more and more photos of V and Jennie surfacing on the web, many fans and netizens speculated that Jennie's private Instagram was hacked, and the photos were leaked from there.
It appears the Twitter user who leaked the photo revealed the leaker's name back in August, as reported in our article. The leaker mentioned the name 이주형 (Lee Joo Hyung), causing netizens to do detective work to find out who Lee Joo Hyung is.
Then recently, Jennie was seen blocking all her followers on her alleged private Instagram account. She also unfollowed everyone.
According to netizens, before Jennie began clearing her private Instagram, she had unfollowed one person. Also, at the same time, the person named Lee Joo Hyung had also unfollowed Jennie. After doing some detective work, netizens found that Lee Joo Hyung is actually a mutual friend of both V and Jennie. They also believe Lee Joo Hyung was on Jeju Island at the same time V and Jennie were, and he is the person who took their photos there.
Now, many netizens sympathize with the idol and are worried about the amount of stress she is going through. Netizens commented, "She must be really stressed," "The person is so wicked..how many months is this?" "I think it's going to be so hard to keep a composed mentality in front of the public when she's going through something like this," "I feel so bad for Jennie," "I think she's clearing her private account since everyone is even talking about her private and public accounts. So, she has nowhere to go. You guys should mind your own business too," "I'm really worried about Jennie. It's really chilling. Imagine the photos you didn't mean to get released get hacked and leaked, causing you to be cursed at by the whole world," "Who is this Lee Joo Hyung person, what does he do? He's an ordinary person?" "I think he was there and took their photos on jeju island," "Who is Lee Joo Hyung?" "Lee Joo Hyung is a model and used to be V's best friend," and "Wait, but what if it's not the Lee Joo Hyung guy (who leaked the photos)."
