This time, for smoking in a hotel room
On September 6th, Mina updated her Instagram with a picture of her and her new non-celebrity boyfriend in a hotel room. However, netizens spotted Mina was holding a lit cigarette in her hand in a hotel room. Netizens claimed the hotel in the picture was a non-smoking building with a designated smoking area on the outside of the building.
Mina denied that she was in a non-smoking room but she deleted the picture in question as she faced a lot of criticisms. Some of the comments as shown in the screenshot below are: "How did you know where she was staying?", "In her previous post, she said it was allowed to smoke in the room. So people commented 'Oh I guess it was a motel, not a hotel'. She got offended and revealed the hotel in Seoul.", "Someone else who stayed in that hotel commented about it"
Shortly after, Mina uploaded a screenshot of her hotel room reservation from a third-party booking site on her Instagram. The screenshot shows that she selected a room where smoking is allowed under the preferred room section.
The hotel even went out to clarified they had a smoke-free policy and that they did not have a designated smoking room like Mina said
According to the media report on September 7th, the hotel where Mina stayed has confirmed that it does not have any room that permits smoking and they have a designated smoking area on the first floor instead.
She explained that she booked the room thinking it was a smoking room with a screenshot of her reservation and added that she will pay the fine and clean up after herself if it turns out to be a non-smoking room.
Mina has currently deactivated her Instagram account.
Like why is she constantly coming back to social media, constantly uploading and getting everybody's attention like this isn't good for her.
