The video was allegedly spread online by a RIIZE akgae to take attention away from Seunghan‘s recent controversy. It quickly went viral, with over 400,000 views.

Many are defending the star over the matter. After all, Taeyong is a grown adult and it is not illegal for him to be smoking. On the other hand, it is illegal in Osaka, where the video was taken, to smoke on the streets in non-designated areas.

Isn’t the only illegal thing here that he’s smoking in the streets in Osaka? He’s a grown man at 29, I don’t see what’s the problem.
