The 64th Annual Grammy Awards just recently took place in Las Vegas, and the members of BTS showed up and performed, flexing their talents and visuals. The HYBE K-pop group did so well that they were greeted with a warm standing ovation after their performance.

Notably though, beyond BTS's performance garnering attention, member V was seen smoking backstage, getting the attention of netizens. A lot of K-pop fans were not happy as the photos of V were taken without consent.

Furthermore, BTS's V went on to the trend as the photos of the K-pop idol smoking went on to garner attention. V also trended as the K-pop idol 'flirted' with American singer Olivia Rodrigo.

Adding to this, Korean K-pop fans are divided as some justify the K-pop idol while others were not happy. 

One side expressed that since BTS's V is an adult, the K-pop idol can do as he pleases. Some ARMYs (BTS's Fandom) have even explained that it is not a secret that V smokes and regardless if some fans just found out just now or have known for a while now, V should be left alone.

Others have revealed that although BTS's V is a grown man, they are still worried about the K-pop idol's health. Although smoking is something quite common in Asian countries, it is still an unhealthy habit.
