Irene (1991) is the leader as well as the visual of the South Korean girl group Red Velvet. They are known for songs like Psycho, Russian Roulette, Peek-a-boo, among others.

Meanwhile, Kim Taehyung, or V (1995), is from BTS – the boy group who has emerged as the top famous artists over the last few years. For those who have not known, fans have “shipped” the two of them since 4 to 5 years ago.

Many Youtube accounts have posted their own analysis of Kim Taehyung and Irene moments and reactions. And these videos garner hundreds of thousands to millions of views. This proves how many adorers are curious about or root for “VRene”.

Multiple reports about something romantic between the idols also circulated online. While fans seem to have got tired of edited photos, they have even posted the theory via the two groups’ songs. This is one of the most controversial arguments lately when it comes to the connection between Irene and V.

Irene is known as a member of Red Velvet, with an irresistible beauty that many idols dream of

According to the blog’s writer, she stated that the two were definitely dating. They even hinted at their romance through the lyrics of Boy With Luv and Psycho. Some discussions have been brought forward to prove the “deeper meaning” of their parts in their respective tracks.

In detail, the lyrics crooned by V from BTS is translated as “Your beautiful photos, I always keep them under the soft pillow ~ oh bae”. Meanwhile, Irene sang an English part: “I’m originally visual”.

According to the conspiracy theory of the fan, “bae” implies Irene as her real name is Joo Hyun Bae, while the “vi” in “visual” actually means “V” and “I” which are their name’s initials. Also, “sual” means healing in Korean. The writer pertained that V was actually alluding that he wants to keep all pictures of Irene.

The truth to Kim Taehyung and Irene rumors

That sounds about right, but a lot of Korean netizens have said that this is the most ridiculous claim they have ever read. Many requested the writer to stop hallucinating as there is no correlation between these lyrics.

Moreover, both of the idols did not participate in composing or producing these songs. That means this claim is even more unreliable.

Some comments from the netizens have collected a lot of likes from others.

“Hilarious. If this is proof to dating rumors then K-pop would have discovered hundreds of other couples.”

“In Cypher Pt. 4, RM sang “bae” for 18 times. Does that mean he is also dating Irene?”

However, Kim Taehyung and Irene seem to be only colleagues

It is a known fact that Kim Taehyung and Irene are shipped for their immaculate visuals that stand out among the town. Fans also pay attention to their every move at music awards and speculate what they would want to happen. Despite all that, many still believed that they are merely colleagues and there is nothing romantic going on.
