K-pop and Korean entertainment from Korean fans' perspective

When smoking on broadcast was allowed in Korea

In the past, smoking was accepted in buses, taxis, and public places.
Smoking started to disappear on broadcast since 2002~2003.


Instiz: When Korea was free to smoke

- Wow... feels unfamiliar...

- When it was first banned on broadcast, it was awkward ㅋㅋ

- It's weird that underage smoking was less common back then

- Some aspects were more open-minded in the past. Roo'ra had a black member and Chae Rina was very popular with her tanned skin. These days, pale skin is mostly preferred.

- Reminds me of 1N2D's non-smoking episode ㅋㅋㅋㅋ Kim Junho was smoking joyfully and it was blurred ㅋㅋㅋ
