NCTzens Debunk Rumors that NCT Jaemin Smoked Indoors

Fans stated that after he brought his hand to his mouth, he quickly put his hand in his pockets. If he were smoking a cigarette, that would be impossible to do, as it would burn a hole in his outfit. While some questioned that he could be smoking an e-cigarette or vaping, NCTzens debunked this theory as well.

They claimed that the way he positioned his hand was not how someone would hold a cigarette or a vape. His fingers appeared to be folded on top of one another rather than clinging to an object. Instead, it looks like he was scratching his nose or flicking something with his hand.

Many stated that the boys were filming during the winter. As they were in their stage costumes, they were not properly equipped to handle the cold. Because of that, when Jaemin breathed out, a puff of smoke came out of his mouth. It was also argued that if it was a puff from smoking, SM Entertainment would have edited it out.
