Korean netizens reacted to a viral clip showing rising actor Choi Hyun Wook smoking while holding hands with a woman.
On October 5, a video clip of Choi Hyun Wook smoking a cigarette went viral.
In the video, the star actor is seen holding hands with a woman while leaning on a car. The clips seem to have been filmed by someone from inside a waiting vehicle who is an acquaintance of the actor.
Most problematic is that it appears the actor is smoking a cigarette on the street. In Seoul, it is illegal to smoke cigarettes openly on the street, and smokers must use designated smoking areas.
Many netizens were shocked by the clip as Choi Hyun Wook is regarded as one of the brightest next-generation K-Drama stars. Despite only debuting in 2019, the actor has already played significant roles in several hit K-Dramas, including Twenty-Five Twenty-One, Taxi Driver, and Netflix‘s D.P.
Korean netizens expressed their shock and disappointment in the actor.
- “He’s that Twenty-Five Twenty-One actor, right? LOL. Wow… I guess you really do have to take acting as just that.”
- “He looks so natural throwing away the cigarette like that, LOL. I’ve never seen someone act like that…”
- “Wow, I liked him from Racket Boys and D.P. and thought he was a good actor, but this is so shocking. I’m just shocked that he is so different from his image…”
- “I thought he looked similar. He is from NewJeans’ ‘Ditto’ music video… LOL. This ruins his image for me. Stop littering, you fool.”
- “Everyone who loves the nightlife meets a similar end… LOL.”
- “He had a lot of rumored sightings. I guess those rumors were true. He just looks like a f@ck boy.”
- “There were a lot of rumors about him clubbing, and now there is a clip of him holding hands with a woman while smoking… He doesn’t seem to have any professionalism when it comes to acting.”
- “He looks trashy.”
- “He looks like a f@ck boy.”
