The photo was snapped backstage and posted to Instagram.

NCT 127 just wrapped up the Japanese promotions of their latest release Ay-Yo.

The group held a special meet and greet with fans and appeared on NHK’s Venue101, where they filmed various content. 

Afterward, fans were treated to exclusive behind-the-scenes photos of several members, showing off their handsome visuals.

Out of all the pictures, one photo of NCT’s leader Taeyong stood out to fans for another reason.

In the photo, Taeyong is seated while playing on his phone, with something else in his hand. Eagle-eyed fans quickly realized the mysterious item appeared to be a vape!

Since this is not the first time an NCT member has been revealed to smoke, fans immediately found the situation hilarious. The fact that one of Japan’s most prominent media organizations posted it especially stood out. 

Fans also found irony at the moment — in a now-viral clip, Taeyong jokingly showed Johnny a no-vaping sign in an airport. Johnny previously posted photos that fans believe exposed his own vape.

NCTzens also couldn’t help but crack jokes at the situation in general. 

As of writing, the post with the photo is still up. Check out another time an idol accidentally revealed something in an image below!
