Exo’s Chen announces marriage
“Chen has met his beloved partner and will get married soon,” the agency said.
The bride is not a celebrity, and the wedding will be held with only family present, according to the agency.
Chen uploaded a picture of a handwritten letter on Monday afternoon through his fan community named Lysn.
“I wanted to tell the fans - who have given me so much love - first and honestly, ” he wrote.
“I have a girlfriend that I would like to spend the rest of my life with. I am worried about what will happen in the future because of this decision, but I wanted to give the news to my fans as early as possible.”
He also revealed that the bride was pregnant, alluding to the baby as a “blessing.”
“I was in talks with the company and the rest of the members when a blessing came [...] It gave me the strength. I couldn’t waste any more time thinking about when and how to say this. So I gathered my courage.”
He finished the letter by thanking fans and the other members of the group for their support.
Chen debuted as a member of boy band Exo in 2012. He has also released music as a solo artist.
