On November 9, a post was made on an online community with the title, “G-Dragon and Lee Joo Yeon,” comparing several photos from social media accounts belonging to Lee Joo Yeon, G-Dragon, and his close acquaintance.
According to the post, the photos that Lee Joo Yeon had shared on her own Instagram account and the ones uploaded by G-Dragon and his acquaintance were seemingly taken at the same location. The photos were taken a year ago in Hawaii, implying that they had gone on a trip together.
In response to the resurfaced dating rumors, a source from Lee Joo Yeon’s agency Better Ent stated, “G-Dragon and Lee Joo Yeon are just friends, not lovers. We don’t have a full understanding of their Instagram posts, but we’re speculating that a few netizens just put the photos together.”
G-Dragon’s agency YG Entertainment also addressed the dating reports, saying, “The two are just colleagues. The photos were taken in Hawaii when they were there for an event, and they were joined by other acquaintances. Please check. Thank you.”
