According to media reports, close friends of Jennie and G-Dragon all knew about their relationship. One of their friends confided to SPOTV News, "The two didn't really hide their relationship. They introduced each other to their respective friends as a boyfriend and a girlfriend, and sometimes they would all hang out together." He added, "I guess they just didn't want to officially admit their relationship given the current circumstances."
Another friend said, "It is going to be hard for them to publicly date. I think neither of them wants to be dubbed as someone's boyfriend and someone's girlfriend in their career." This is not the first time G-Dragon had dating news but he always did not admit to the reports.
In the past, he shared his thoughts about publicly dating on MBC's 'Radio Star' saying "It's a personal preference but I won't admit unless my girlfriend wants to. I believe she would suffer more damage because I'm a high-profile person. The public does have the right to know but I don't have an obligation to let them know."
As previously reported, Dispatch reported their relationship and their label YG Entertainment
responded that the label can't confirm anything about their personal lives.
