Uh-oh, another member of the K-pop mega group NCT has found himself in deep trouble!
This time, Jungwoo (정우)’s name has been trending on Twitter after photos of him smoking circulated online recently.
As expected, the issue was met with dividing opinions from a lot of K-pop fans. Some are saying that as an idol, he should be setting a good example for his much younger, impressionable fans by not smoking, at least in public. In addition, others argued that smoking is simply bad for his health.
On the contrary, some fans have come to Jungwoo’s defence. In this case, most of them argued that he is allowed to do whatever he wants to do, as he is mature enough to make his own decisions. Some fans also turned the serious situation into a humorous one, stating that it is extremely funny how Jungwoo is known for his cute appearance, yet looks like a hot bad boy while smoking.
#JUNGWOO is an adult and can do whatever he wants, HOWEVER he shouldn’t do that in person especially when young fans follow him and sets a bad imagine/it may inspire younger people to do the same already knowing it’s bad. pic.twitter.com/MdkLZQonXl

Jungwoo smoking? YES HE IS SMOKING HOT!!! #JUNGWOO #JUNGWOOBESTBOY but on a more serious note, I don't like anyone smoking because it is dangerous and bad for one's health. So yes, I would be happy if #luwoo stopped but it's their life and as adults they know what's right & wrong pic.twitter.com/CNSaGSlZz9ADVERTISEMENT

As aforementioned, Jungwoo is not the first member from the 23-piece musical ensemble who has been caught up in such a tricky situation. Back on 1st October, NCT member Lucas was caught accidentally flashing a cigarette box during an Instagram Live.
