BLACKPINK member Jennie has been reported for allegedly smoking indoors.

On the 8th, a video of Jennie smoking indoors went viral on online communities. This clip was part of a vlog posted on Jennie’s YouTube channel on the 2nd, but the specific scene has since been deleted.

A netizen claimed to have reported the incident to the Embassy of the Republic of Korea in Italy. Netizen A stated that the location appeared to be Capri Island, Italy, and said, “I requested an investigation through the petition to the Korean Embassy in Italy. I strongly urge a thorough investigation and strict action regarding Jennie’s indoor smoking incident.” They also shared a screenshot showing the completed complaint to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Since January 2005, Italy has enforced a ban on indoor smoking. Those caught smoking in indoor public places face a fine of up to 250 euros (approximately 370,000 won) per cigarette. The fine doubles if smoking occurs in front of pregnant women or children.

-Whoa… to this extent?

-I thought indoor smoking was okay abroad.

-Other celebrities have also paid fines for similar reasons.

-I heard it wasn’t illegal abroad.

-Wait, Italy also bans indoor smoking?

-Celebrities caught smoking indoors in Korea also got fined.

-When in Rome, do as the Romans doㅋㅋㅋㅋ

-So, they also ban indoor smoking there.

-In Korea, people reported such incidents too. It’s up to the person to report or not. The one who broke the law is at fault, not the reporter.

-I thought indoor smoking was allowed abroad and only Korea was strict…

-If she hadn’t smoked, she wouldn’t have been reported.

-How did they know it was in Italy? It just looks like a waiting roomㅋㅋㅋㅋ Amazing, they said indoor smoking was allowed abroad, but it’s not.

-Why is this ‘overreacting’?ㅋㅋㅋㅋ It’s hilarious. Who told her to smoke indoors?

-If indoor smoking is banned, it should be reported. What’s overreacting about that? Is it normal to blow smoke in someone’s face?
