BTS members Jimin, Jungkook, RM, Suga, V, Jin and J-Hope's are all currently single, but there have been plenty of dating and girlfriend rumours surrounding them.
When it comes to BTS, there are various rumours about the guys having girlfriends. Many people will tell you that girlfriends are banned for the K-pop heroes, however that's untrue and there have been a number of dating rumours over the years, even though BTS are all currently single.
BTS are one of the busiest groups around, even releasing a song with Nicki Minaj, spending hours practicing their incredibly precise and powerful dance routines, whilst also working in the studio and performing for huge crowds across the world, so finding time for dating must be difficult.
But have BTS had any girlfriends and if so, who were they dating? We took a look at the dating history and current relationship status of each member of BTS below...
According to various reports online, Jungkook's ideal woman is someone who’s at least 168 cm but smaller than him, is a good wife, good at cooking, smart, has pretty legs, is nice and is good at singing.
In terms of actual girlfriends, Jungkook is currently single but has previously been rumoured to date K-pop stars Jeong Ye In of the group 'Lovelyz', Jung Chae Yeon from 'DIA' as well as a 2015 rumour that he dated CUBE trainee Ko So-hyun.
Rumours that fans had found an Instagram account that proved Jungkook and Ko So-hyun had dated and included their nicknames Cookie and Mochi continued to flood the internet, but neither have ever spoken pubicly about the stories.
As with all the BTS members, Jimin is currently single, but rumours around his relationship status have filled social media over the years too.
The biggest dating rumour was that Jimin was dating fellow K-pop star Han Seung-yeon from the group KARA. In an interview on the show 'Weekly Idol', Han was asked whether she had her eye on Jimin and responded, "That's right. When we were promoting 'Mamma Mia,' our promotion periods overlapped. He has caught my eye ever since. It was nice when our [promotion periods] overlapped by one week this time around too."
RM, formerly known as Rap Monster, is also currently single and he's one of the only members of BTS who hasn't really been caught up in dating rumours.
Various sources online quote RM with saying that he had a relationship when he was back in school but more recently there was a rumour that RM had a secret girlfriend back in 2017.
During an interview with Billboard explaining the Outro of BTS' 'Love Yourself' album, RM said, "I thought it was the right outro for this album because it is really a range of emotions - I'm saying I met this person that I really love, this person is the love of my life right now, I'm saying that I was confused and I was looking for love and this world is complex."
Different theories about what RM meant were suggested at the time and one was that he had been hiding a secret girlfriend from fans, however that has yet to be proven.
BTS star Jin's current relationship status is single, but like most of the other members of the group, he's faced dating rumours in the past. The biggest dating rumour surrounding Jin was with comedienne Lee Gook Joo, especially after Jin thanked her in the first 3 BTS album notes.
The Korean comedy star claimed that she had gotten close to Jin when quizzed about rumours during a TV interview, but most fans took the comments with a pinch of salt. and nothing has ever materialised.
During the chat, Lee Gook Joo said, “So there’s a person who I have been close to for over four years and I even cheered him on at ‘Music Core’ when he debuted. BTS’ Jin. We are very close. He thanked me in the ‘Thanks To’ section in his first three albums and fans put two and two together.”
Unlike the rest of BTS, Suga has managed to avoid really becoming embroiled in any public dating rumours and has stated that he's too busy to date.
A rumour appeared to begin that Suga was dating fellow K-opo star Suran after the pair worked together on the song 'Wine', but it was quickly denied and the rumour ended before it even really began.
Whilst V is currently single, he's the only member of BTS whose official relationship status has been discussed openly by their management Big Hit Entertainment.
Rumours had been surfacing that V was dating a BTS fan called Hi and those rumours were backed up by V's regular use of the phrase 'Hi Nuna' on Instagram, as well as fans claiming that V had been wearing a ring Hi gave to him.
Once the rumours began to escalate, Big Hit Entertainment admitted that V and Hi had been talking but that they weren't dating and were just friends.
J-Hope is currently single and since being a member of BTS he hasn't been linked to any dating rumours.
Various sources online claim that J-Hope was in a relationship before he was in BTS and that he split with his girlfriend after she decided to move on with someone else, but that's the only dating story about J-Hope.
