The alleged dating controversy surrounding BTS' Jimin and actress Song Da Eun has stirred up a storm of speculation among fans. It all started in July 2023, when an anonymous netizen posted a series of "proof" on the Pann Nate forum, suggesting that Jimin and Song Da Eun were romantically involved.

As a result, netizens expressed frustration and disappointment with Song Da Eun's recent actions, accusing her of clout-chasing and intentionally stirring up controversy for attention.

Amidst the frenzy of speculation, both Jimin and Song Da Eun have remained silent on the matter, leaving fans to wonder about the true nature of their relationship.
