The "because he's a celeb" stuff makes sense when you think about it though. It seems Koreans are the opposite of Americans where they think celebs have an obligation to be good role models for society. That's why their standards are so high and idols get criticized over every stupid little thing--I think they see them as a reflecting on Koreans as a whole? Great recent example is Soyeon having to apologize for using pirated software when almost everyone in Korea has illegally downloaded something at some point. Same with smoking...it can be a scandal for an idol even though iirc most adult Korean men smoke.
