SHINee's Onew Under Scrutiny For Smoking Electronic Cigarette

Photos of SHINee's Onew apparently smoking an electronic cigarette have caused a stir among netizens as the idol's innocent image continues to be tarnished.

The photos in question were taken while Onew was supposedly on a date with After School's Jung Ah, a relationship which Pledis Entertainment has dismissed.

Last week, Onew faced more controversy when a photo of him giving someone the middle finger during a radio broadcast shocked netizens with his rude, careless display. SM Entertainment later stated what he did was wrong and that he would be reflecting upon his actions.

Fans of Onew have faced surprise after surprise over the past week, causing some to start looking upon him negatively. "You were my ideal person, but now I don't care about you anymore," one netizen wrote.

Others have come to Onew's defense, stating that he should be free to live his life the way he wants.

    Honestly that looks more like a pen. I've seen a lot of electronic cigarettes and that frankly, doesn't look like one ⊂•⊃_⊂•⊃ Even if it is, who are we to judge? Everyone, and I mean every single person in this world has made mistakes, has one or two bad habits, or flipped someone off. I bet the person he flipped off really deserved it, because I honestly don't believe he would do it otherwise. Being under such a large telescope by his fans and SM is probably really stressful and every little thing, and every little mistake, gets blown way out of proportion. People should really grow up and learn that idols are not perfect, an neither are they. (。≖ω≖。✿)

    It's better than a real cigarette! And ether way ... it doesn't matter! Let him live how he wants to! As for the middle finger, life must be stressful ... it was probably deserved. And so what!

    Is that even a cigarette? It doesn't look like it to me. And even if he does smoke. Who cares? No big deal.

    It's only an electronic one, people.

    Okay I think some people and I just mean the netizens should get that Onew for 5 years played the role SM told him too. Now everyone has a issue that a grown man does what he pleases? Seriously?
    His life. His choices. Your oppa isn't perfect. Get it into your god dam heads.

    Before he's an idol, he's a human being so let him live his life. Gods!

    It doesn't even look like a cigarette. Honestly who cares? Grow up fans. Onew's one of my top bias's and I honestly can't find it in myself to even care, let him live the way he wants to.
