The alleged girlfriend of BTS V‘s look-alike model Taek has come forward to respond to allegations that it was him in the picture with Jennie.
The alleged girlfriend, on May 27, responded to a post on an online community titled, “The Gentle Monster model that looks like V and filmed in Jeju.”
The post alleged that the man in the infamous picture with Jennie was a model named Taek, and that he had worked as a Gentle Monster model. Taek has previously denied these allegations.
The alleged girlfriend of Taek, in her response, denied that he was the man in the picture with Jennie and that he had never worked for Gentle Monster. She also asked for netizens to respect their privacy and for this post to be deleted as they are not celebrities but ordinary citizens.
Hello, I am the girlfriend of the man in this post 🙂 At first, we just tried to laugh it off, but I am writing this due to the issue becoming so big! My boyfriend has never worked as a model for Gentle Monster and is currently only dating me. Please do not misunderstand and since we are ordinary citizens, please take this post down.

Hello 🙂 My head hurts as the more I explain, the more rumors there seem to be ^^; The two in the picture are not us.
