'Produce 101's Kang Daniel is being criticized for smoking while holding a cat.

A past photo of Kang Daniel has surfaced supposedly from this past spring. Kang Daniel was born in 1996 and is legally allowed to smoke (has been a legal adult in Korea since 2015). While that could potentially cause an issue for some, the biggest issue netizens saw was that he was holding a cat while he was smoking, and that he was walking outside. The first is becoming an issue because it's bad for the cat's health, and the second would be an issue because it's illegal in South Korea to smoke on the streets.

Some fans have come to his defense to say that it's not a cigarette at all but an ice cream stick, but others have pointed out that the way he's holding the stick is not how you usually hold ice cream but how you usually hold cigarette sticks, and that ice cream would be too heavy to hold lightly as he is.

Check out the photo yourself. What do you think?

It's just that you got nothing else to post bout them/him so you tryin'a make a scandal about him which is utterly pointless .try again AKP... Peaches here to protect that innocent Peach!!

Proofs been raised that, "That" is not a cigarette but an icecream stick, why he's holding it that way maybe because he didnt want it close to his cat in case the cat decides to lick it... OR that the icecream's already finished...Also, there was a picture that showed that "THAT" thing he's holding is actually longer than AKP shows, which makes it too long to be a cigarette

Why can't people smoke in peace? Would you scold any smoker on the streets the same way as you do it with idols who smoke? Or would you even care?

The cigarette does not seem to be lit nor does it hurt the cat. Why is this an article in the first place?

Not a fan of him or the show, BUT COME ON. You can't see if the cig is lit, there's not even a sliver of smoke, and he's holding it on the wrong side anyways. There are a thousand scenarios this could have been, and they think he's smoking whilst petting a cat. Right. Netizens are grasping at straws here if they legit thought this would be a scandal. OTL Main thing I noticed, that cat is freakin' adorable.

When you search up Kang Daniel on NAVER (Korea's Google site), not a single news article talks about this "news" on its first page. Also, when you look up comments relevant to him on NAVER, no one is talking about this. Rather, they talk about how hot he is :). So stop trying to make money by making stupid article ALLKPOP. LET'S SUPPORT KANG DANIEL!

Then he must not know how to smoke. The yellow end goes in your mouth, the way he's holding it, it would be backwards. I am 90% sure its not a cigarette.
