Itinanggi ng BIG Hit Entertainment ang tungkol sa pagkaka-link ng isa sa miyembro ng BTS na si Jungkook sa isang tattoo artist.
Sumunod na nag-post ang tattoo artist sa kanyang social media account at pinabulaanan din na “dating” sila.
“I am absolutely not in a relationship with Jungkook.
“I am posting this because of the words spreading online and the unfortunate situation of people causing misunderstandings by impersonating me.
“I didn’t say anything because it was the obvious truth that people would not believe me, interpret [my words] as they wish, and that I would receive even hasher replies.
“I would like to once again state that it is absolutely not true that I am dating Jungkook or that I tattooed my initials on him. We are simply close friends, and I am very apologetic as it seems that fans were extremely hurt in addition to myself and people around me.
“I will not say anything further. I would just like to make it clear that I was not ignoring or disregarding everything.”
Nag-ugat ang isyu kay Jungkook sa panahon na nabigyan ng one month break ang BTS.
Para sa Big Hit Entertainment, invasion of privacy ang ginawa ng nagkalat ng isyu without verifying the truth.
Sabi pa sa statement ng Big Hit Entertainment, “We think it is unfortunate that [Jungkook’s] personal daily life during his period of rest became known in a distorted way.
“We will figure out whether CCTV footage was leaked or if there was illegal filming and take strong legal action against the disclosure of personal information and invasion of privacy. Furthermore, we announce that we will also take legal action against the spread of false rumors.”
