In 2017, both TWICE and BTS were backstage in "Music Bank" to promote their comebacks, "Knock Knock" and "Spring Day," respectively. At the time, all the members of TWICE appeared very friendly and interacted with BTS as colleagues, but only Jeongyeon appeared stoic when looking at BTS.

The camera would often catch Jimin glancing at Jeongyeon, but the female idol remained quiet.

That same year, TWICE appeared backstage on "Music Core" to react and monitor their performance. When they arrived, Jimin was seen on the screen. Upon seeing him, the eight members of TWICE laughed at the male's humorous performance, but Jeongyeon appeared disinterested and did not look at the screen. Some ONCEs speculated that Jeongyeon was angry at the time due to rumors that Jimin was dating another girl.

Instead, the two were often seen making eye contact but would immediately peel their eyes away when caught. This made fans wonder if the two had a secret relationship.
