SHINee‘s Onew is caught up in yet another controversy and this time, it’s regarding him smoking electronic cigarettes.
On March 25, dating rumors of Onew and After School’s Jungah re-sparked after a few photos of the two together were taken at Apgu-jung.
In a couple of the pictures, netizens pointed out that Onew was smoking an electronic cigarette. Opinions have been split over this matter.
Some netizens have been defending Onew by saying, “He’s an adult, who cares,” “This is more shocking than the dating rumor but I understand,” “He’s an adult, he wasn’t on broadcast so who cares,” and more.
But on the contrary, some have been commenting, “I liked Onew’s innocent and clear image so this is really shocking,” “This is the third hit of controversies for Onew,” “He needs to take care of his image,” and more.
Meanwhile, Onew’s agency denied the dating rumors with Jungah and stated, “They are just close colleagues.”
Onew has been caught up in a whirlwind of controversies lately, including the middle finger incident, not too long ago.
