Smoker or Not? Here K-Pop Idols Who Were Caught Having A Smoke










Female and Male Korean Idols Who Were Caught Having a Cigarette in Their Hands

Cigarettes are bad for your health yet still many are addicted to smoking as people tend to feel less stressed afterwards. Maybe this is what prompts K-Pop idols to have a cigarette – alone or with fellow friends. Sadly, smoking is not well-viewed in Korea for anyone, let alone the idols. Even on broadcasts, cigarettes are censored. Smoking is usually done in a private space with only fellow members, few crews or no one at all around them. Both male and female idols have had their fair share of being spotted or known for smoking. Who are these idols? We’ve listed them below for you!

List of Male K-Pop Idol as Smokers

1. EXO Member: Sehun, Tao, Kai, and D.O

Although many people believe that all members of EXO smoke, there have only been four members caught with cigarettes. Sehun and Tao were casually smoking one in a place that seemed to be a lounge.


Kai was reportedly caught smoking in between takes during their “Call Me Baby” music video shooting in England.
