1. [+1,629, -217] Tryhard
2. [+1,505, -175] Tryhard ㅋ But a lot of female idols aside from CL also smoke a lot
3. [+1,240, -99] Mm.. But she's still an idol... and I'm CL's fan but I'm honestly speechless.. She didn't have to upload this picture but she did and now she's getting hate for it.. It's a blurry situation where she's not right or wrong, but considering the fact that she's an idol, it's definitely wrong. Idols need to think twice before uploading things on SNS... So many fans are watching!!!
4. [+131, -37] Why did she do this when she fully knows she'll get hate for it? It doesn't matter if you're a female or male, an idol uploading a picture like this will obviously bring controversy. Tone it down, at least for the kids who still like you.
5. [+119, -24] Imagine if this was Sulli or Hyuna
6. [+112, -38] Nothing good ever comes out of tryharding... It's a surefire way to end your career in one moment ㅋㅋㅋ
7. [+99, -71] Hookah uses a lot of herbs and fruits so I don't know why she's getting hate for smoking it. Yeah, uploading the picture's wrong but hookah itself isn't that bad ㅋㅋ There are a lot of hookah cafes in Korea anyway
8. [+78, -57] She's not really smoking ㅎㅎ Hookah has no addiction or nicotine, right?
9. [+71, -23] Ah...... I like CL..... but why upload pictures like this ㅠㅠ Why... just don't do it ㅠㅠㅠㅠ
10. [+70, -25] She seems desperate to end her career. It's not the smoking that's the problem but a female idol uploading a picture of herself smoking? Exactly what is she trying to imply?
