Nine Muses' Kyungri responds to smoking reports

Nine Muses member Kyungri squashed the rumours on her Twitter account.

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.

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!"
