Big Hit Entertainment is under fire due to a smoking staff member.

Just a few hours ago, BTS uploaded a 'Bangtan Bomb', a series of short videos the boys casually film for fans to enjoy. This particular one was short and featured Jimin playing with a rubber snake. While the video itself was adorable, fans saw something they were shocked by - a staff member smoking behind Jimin.

Smoking inside buildings is illegal in Korea (however, the law applies to public spaces, so an M/V filming set might not count), but the biggest reason for the fans' anger is that she's smoking near singers, whose throat conditions are very important. 

Another staff member is also being called into question. During a Bomb back in 2014, V is shown introducing the camera to the rest of the group. However, when he walks into the class, one of the female staff members laughs loudly and can be allegedly heard saying, "It's like he's [mentally] disabled." The problematic Bomb is here, and the comment can be heard at the 0:05 mark.

After fans expressed their outrage at the video, the Bomb in question has been deleted. 

However, the video has been re-uploaded by many angry fans, who are demanding a response from Big Hit. You can watch the video below:

What do you think of the controversy?

look at army getting angry if someone make them realize the possibility of them smoking

fxcx09 shikey Thursday, July 14, 2016

actually some ARMYs are mad bcs second hand smoking is even worse than the members themselves actually smoking. it can damage their vocal cords and stuff

I mean it's not endangering their lives, but obviously with knowledge of how critical some fans can be, she should've smoked in an open space, not an enclosed area.

Clearly he doesn't even care if he chose to film where she was smoking? At least in the video you can see that she left right away too, so like what? These KNETZ are hella sensitive, if he was suffocating from all that haze and shiz he could have filmed somewhere else but he was fine. And this is coming from a person that doesn't smoke either. When people smoke near me I just move away. So chill. If the issue is about her smoking in a confined space, then fine. I can accept that. But other than that, nah.

it's not knet these are army acting as if it's impossible that the member smoke too and that's why they didn't seem uncorfortable with someone smoking near them

Nine muses documentary is full of unprofessional staff smoking everywhere!!

ALSO how about we acknowledge the fact that there's a literal cigarette in the I Need U 19+ video lol double standards

ahfl143 Wednesday, July 6, 2016

how is this even an issue, as if all of bts don't smoke anyway. no evidence but it's probably verrrrry likely that they're smokers

ahfl143 Wednesday, July 6, 2016

*some of not all of

aquamanas ahfl143 Thursday, July 7, 2016

wait but like, how do you know if there isn't any evidence? lol

smoking isn't healthy ok we all know that and yeah she should've smoked outside but these 'fans' need to chill, they can't protect the members of every danger...They are grown up and they know what to do,  there is no need to be this obsessive cuz its annoying... The fans are  acting like they live in a perfect world where there are no problems , everything should go well and stuff I mean open ur eyes no matter how much u like/love them its still reality and let them live how they want.. Smoking is not something new so why all the drama about it..U need to deal with it and pls don't act like crazy insane pple, there's a limit, they can't decide everything about BTS so calm the fuck down..
