The controversies sparked when an old video of Yoon Jung, who is a Grade 3 contestant of “My Teenage Girl” and a trainee under J Planet Entertainment, went viral on the internet. In no time, it made many headlines across the internet for its underage content.

The video was taken off social media platforms as it started to become intense. But many out there have successfully captured the clips from the video while it was still on the internet.

Of course, the issue of smoking is not something really big. But the fact that Yoon Jung was really underaged in the rumored clip made it a big issue. Currently, the trainee is 16-year-old and was even younger in the clip that was going viral on the internet.

In South Korea, the legal age for smoking and purchasing tobacco products is 19-years-old. And this means Yoon Jung has severely breached protocol as she is still not anywhere near the legal age. Moreover, it is also true that underage drinking and smoking have become something really common in the country, but that doesn’t mean that the public out there cannot form a negative opinion about the same.
