Nine Muses member Kyungri has opened up about rumours that she is a chain-smoker. The 25-year-old South Korean girl group member slammed reports that she smokes.
Kyungri took to her Twitter account to address the reports. She wrote: "I may drink, but I do not smoke. Do not spread rumors. No matter how sexy you may think I look... In contrast to how I look, I'm mild."
"I don't think badly of people who smoke. There are people around me who I like that smoke frequently. It's your right, and it's not my place to say do this or that. All I wanted to say was that I am a milder person than you think since I was hearing all these rumors. I hope that no one misunderstands," she added.

루머 퍼뜨리지 마세요.
아무리 제가 섹시하게 생겼다지만.. 보이는것과 달리 순해요. ☺️
담배피는분들에 대한 나쁜 생각 없어요. 제가 좋아하는 주변 분들중에도 종종 피시는 분들이 있고,그것은 제가 이래라저래라 할수 없는 자유입니다. 단지 이런저런 루머들을 듣기에 저는 생각 보다 순한사람이란 걸 말씀드리고 싶었을뿐입니다.오해없으시길바랄게요.— ✽경리 (@ICE_Gang) June 6, 2016
This is not the first time that Kyungri was caught in controversy. In January, she squashed reports that she went under the knife.
During an episode of KBS 2TV's Gag Concert, she was asked if she has undergone plastic surgery. Kyungri said: "I actually didn't go through any plastic surgery at all. I'm naturally beautiful!"
