On September 17th, Big Hit Entertainment released their official statement regarding BTS' Jungkook's dating rumors: "The current dating rumors surrounding our artist Jungkook is false. During his visit to Geoje Island, he met up with his acquaintances from a tattoo shop for a meal and karaoke after realizing they too were in the area. The truth ended up distorted and we find it unfortunate that his personal life during his vacation ended up becoming known in a distorted manner. We are currently investigating if the picture and footage was illegally taken and/or leaked and plan on taking strong legal measures. Additionally, we will be taking legal action against the spread of false information on the grounds of defamation."
Tattoo artist Rennis also came forward to deny the dating rumors: "I am not dating Jungkook. I'm writing about this because I find it unfortunate that there were misunderstandings brought on by the current rumor and from people impersonating me. I kept quiet originally because the truth of the matter is that even if I did say something, people would not believe me or misinterpret my words by changing it to how they see it and criticize me even harsher. I want to reiterate that I am not dating Jungkook and I did not tattoo my initials on him. We are only close friends and I only feel sorry because that fact brought on a lot of harm to me, those around me, and their fans. I will not say anything else aside from this. I just wanted to make it clear that I was ignoring the situation."

정국과의 연인관계는 절대 아닙니다. 지금 돌아다니는 말들과 저를 사칭해서 오해를 불러일으키는 상황이 안타까워서 글 올립니다. 무슨답변을 드리던 믿지않고 스스로들 마음대로 해석하고 더 심한 답글을 들을게 뻔한 사실이라서 아무 말 안하고있었습니다. 다시 말씀드리지만 정국과의 연인관계라던지 제 이니셜을 타투잉 해줬다는 말들은 절대 사실이 아닙니다. 단지 친한 친구정도이며 그것때문에 저와 주변분들이 많이 상처받고 팬분들에게도 큰 상처를 입힌것 같아서 너무 죄송합니다. 이후의 말은 하지않겠습니다. 무시가 절대 아닌것만 알아주세요.
