While RM is an adult and at legal smoking age, with the right to choose what he does, Korean fans are expressing genuine surprise at the picture—as K-Pop idols are often held to a much higher (and sometimes unreasonable) standard, and smoking has long been frowned upon in Korea.

Following the update, Twitter saw “Namjoon” trend with international fans also discussing the picture.

RM has not commented on the update.

In September 2023, fellow BTS member Jungkook was also seen smoking outside a restaurant in Los Angeles, California. Read more about it here.
