After the series of fan-suspected rumors and incoherent responses, both the labels of Big Bang's G-Dragon and After School's Jooyeon decided to deny that the two stars were dating, plain and clear.
Jooyeon's label Better ENT said, "G-Dragon and Jooyeon are not dating; they're friends. We could not confirm the content posted on Instagram precisely, but we suspect that some netizens cut and collected portions to make it seem more believable."
G-Dragon's label YG Entertainment added, "The two know each other as co-workers, and the photos in question from Hawaii were from a trip with acquaintances after a performance. Please check. Thank you."
