Goo Hara is one of the more popular K-pop idols on Instagram, sharing posts on her account on a regular basis. However, her latest photo has received a bit of attention from netizens due to its content.

In a now-deleted photo, the former KARA member shared a photo of what appears to be a rolled-up cigarette with the caption "This is tasty. This tastes good." The photo was quickly deleted afterwards, but many netizens saw the picture and took to the online forums to express their thoughts about the nature of the cigarette and why the photo was deleted immediately:

  • "What is this? I don't see the reason why she would delete it immediately if it was just a cigar."
  • "She's an adult so it doesn't matter if she smokes or not but it's weird because she deleted it immediately."
  • "Could be a joint, but also could be a simply rolled up cigarette. I know people who still roll their cigarettes."
  • "omg i hope she doesnt get in legal trouble for this tho" 
  • "I'm just going to give her the benefit of the doubt tho."
  • "Looks like a normal hand-rolled cigarette."

Goo Hara has since posted up a new photo and message on Instagram, writing that it was nothing more than a cigarette.
