After a recent flurry of online rumors and reports, SHINee's lead singer Jonghyun has stepped forward to deny he is dating Nine Muses singer Kyung Ri.

The 23-year-old singer spoke out on Twitter after it was claimed by a Korean tabloid that the pair, both the same age, had been on a movie date together.

"I have noticed the stories circulating about me on several community sites," he wrote. "I did see a movie with some acquaintances (who are not TV stars) but just my friends. I don't want to cause any harm to anyone [with these rumors]."

He added: "I found out about this through a friend who sent me one of the photos. I'm just happy to have a lot of people who care for me... I know it's not necessary for me to feel sorry about it, but I do apologize to the many fans who were wondering about our relationship."

In 2011, Jonghyun and actress Shin Se Kyung broke up after only a few months of dating. Shin, 23, had to deal with hate mail from his fans and a media frenzy during their brief time together. They reportedly parted ways because of their busy schedules.

SHINee released a double repackaged album titled "The Misconceptions of Us" on August 8.
