Blackpink’s Jennie apologizes for vaping in video

The South Korean singer Jennie Kim from K-pop group Blackpink, has apologized after a video of her using an e-cigarette at home sparked backlash across South Korea.

According to JTBC News, an affiliate of CNN the 28-year-old star posted a video on her personal YouTube channel that included footage of herself smoking in a room while getting her hair and makeup done. Stylists are seen very close to her face as she exhales the smoke.

Although the video has since been taken down from Kim’s channel, a clip of her using the e-cigarette has spread across the internet. Some of the singer’s fans quickly took to social media to criticize her, expressing their disappointment that she was smoking, especially in a closed room around other people. Others defended the singer, noting that it is a personal choice whether or not to smoke.

Odd Atelier, a record label founded by Kim in November last year, posted the star’s apology on X, formerly Twitter.

“Jennie acknowledges and deeply regrets her mistake in smoking indoors and causing disruption to staff,” he wrote.

She personally apologized to the staff on site, Odd Atelier continued, adding that “we apologize to the fans who were disappointed by this incident. We hope to prevent this from happening again in the future.”
