In BLACKPINK, the only member that has officially confirmed to be dating is Jennie. She got caught twice when she was dating EXO’s Kai in January 2019 and BIGBANG’s G-Dragon in February 2021.

YG Entertainment Banned BLACKPINK for Dating At First
YG Entertainment banned their idols including BLACKPINK to date. The agency is known for its very strict rules on dating which also applies to idols since they were trainees.
BLACKPINK’s Jisoo and Rosé opened up about their dating life and the dating rules in YG Entertainment when they appeared on MBC’s Radio Star on the January 11th episode. Jisoo and Rosé revealed that all of BLACKPINK’s members are not allowed to date anyone as long as BLACKPINK is under YG’s contract.
Jisoo herself added that the rules are actually made to prevent idols under YG Entertainment from dating secretly. But, actually, there are exceptions about dating if the idol tries to discuss and negotiate with YG.
To Prevent BLACKPINK From Dating, YG Entertainment Separates Male and Female Trainees in Cafetaria
Giving further information, BLACKPINK’s Jisoo shared that in order to prevent dating among YG trainees, male and female trainees are always separated by YG. She added, “Even the eating times of trainees are different. At YG’s cafeteria, if the boys eat at 6 o’clock, the girls will eat at 7 o’clock.”
If the male trainees are not finished with their meals when their time is ended, their managers will directly come and cover them up. This is why it is very hard for trainees to meet up with each other or even date. But, don’t you worry. It doesn’t mean that they can’t make friends. Once they debut, everything becomes better.
Even Though He Is Strict About Dating, BLACKPINK Admits Yang Hyun-suk Is Like A Dad Figure
BLACKPINK’s members mentioned that Yang Hyun Suk (the Chief Executive Officer and founder of YG Entertainment) is just like a dad to them.
He cares a lot about BLACKPINK’s members even when they were still trainees. Jisoo, Rosé, Lisa, and Jennie revealed that Yang Hyun Suk personally met and warned them about the boys. Jennie even said, “Since the first day I entered YG Entertainment, Yang Hyun Suk sajangnim told me to always be careful of boys.” Aside from Jennie, Jisoo was also questioned when Yang Hyun Suk spotted her wearing a ring.

“The first time I met Yang Hyun Suk sajangnim, he asked me, ‘Do you happen to have a boyfriend right now?’ At the time, I was wearing a ring, and he even asked what that ring was. I didn’t have a boyfriend, and it was just a ring,” Jisoo said.
BLACKPINK’s Dating Rumors
So, in this section, we will disclose the dating rumors surrounding the members from BLACKPINK: Lisa, Jisoo, Jennie, and Rosé.
BLACKPINK’s Jisoo’s Dating Rumor with EXO’s Sehun
Jisoo and Sehun’s dating gossip began fanning out quickly after netizens ran over a video on TikTok that suggested the idea. The video uncovered that Dispatch confirmed the news. Dispatch is a site that is a solid source of information with regards to breaking news about K-pop idols.
Be that as it may, in this situation, it was false. The video flowing on the web on TikTok is phony and likely made by one of the fans. Dispatch never confirmed Jisoo and Sehun’s dating rumor.
BLACKPINK’s Jennie’s Dating Rumors with EXO’s Kai, G-Dragon, Teddy, and More
1. BLACKPINK’s Jennie With EXO’s Kai: Confirmed to be Dating in January 2019
BLACKPINK’s Jennie was caught when she was on a date with EXO’s main dancer, Kai. The pictures of them were captured by Dispatch reporters in the middle of the night.
The pictures were revealed on January 1st, 2019. Later on that day, both agencies of Kai and Jennie, SM Entertainment, and YG Entertainment confirmed that the two of them are dating.
However, not a long time after that, on January 24, 2019, Kai and Jennie were confirmed to be broken up.
2. BLACKPINK’s Jennie’s Dating Rumors With BIGBANG’s G-Dragon
In February 2021, Jennie once again was caught on a date with none other than her senior in YG Entertainment, G-Dragon of BIGBANG. Dispatch revealed the pictures of Jennie and G-Dragon together.
Even so, unlike Jennie’s love story with Kai, YG Entertainment didn’t want to confirm the relationship between her and G-Dragon. “We cannot confirm anything because it is the artists’ private lives,” stated YG Entertainment.
So, what do you think? Are they actually dating or just close friends?
3. BLACKPINK’s Jennie Dating Rumors With Harry Styles
Harry Styles has been staying under the radar recently until he was spotted going to BLACKPINK’s show in the Forum in Los Angeles in 2019. His participation further started dating rumors as he also follows Jennie on Instagram.
He coincidentally took the spotlight from BLACKPINK when some concertgoers couldn’t resist the urge to remove their eyes from the stage and get a brief look at him. Harry Styles was captured wearing a black beanie and sitting in the VIP segment of the Forum.
However, this rumor wasn’t confirmed by the agency, so most likely is false.
4. BLACKPINK’s Jennie and Teddy Park’s Dating Rumors
Back in 2017, there were rumors that Jennie was dating Teddy Park. Soompi revealed that an industry insider claimed the two had gotten close to each other regardless of their 17-year age gap. However, YG Entertainment shut down the rumors and said, “This is the first occasion when we’ve found out about Teddy and Jennie’s dating rumors. The talk about the dating rumors isn’t accurate. We’ll be taking legal action against it.”
BLACKPINK’s Rosé’s Dating Rumor with John Mayer
BLACKPINK’s Rosé was rumored to be dating the singer-songwriter, John Mayer. The rumor started to spread when BLACKPINK’s Rosé made a cover of John Mayer’s song, Slow Dancing, and got a reaction from the original singer.
Not only that John Mayer said he was impressed by Rosé’s cover, but he also gave her a pink guitar and a handwritten note that she shared on her Instagram. Rosé wrote a caption, “Life is complete” which questions fans about their relationship.
Are they dating? Well, there is no confirmation about this, let’s just hope for the best for both of them!
BLACKPINK’s Lisa’s Dating Rumor with BTS’ Jungkook
As indicated by reports, dating rumors about Lisa and Jungkook have been brewing up for quite a while. The pair had additionally been spotted hanging out together, which just added fuel to the dating rumors.

So, that’s all the information about the dating rumors and ex-boyfriends of BLACKPINK’s members.
