EXO’s Chen posted a hand-written letter on EXO’s official fan club page and announced to fans that he would be getting married. Read the full letter below:
Hello, this is Chen.
I am writing this because I have something to tell our fans. I don’t know how to start this, and I’m very nervous. Although these words are not enough, I’m writing this letter because I want to honestly tell our fans, who gave us so much love, first.
I have a girlfriend I want to spend the rest of my life with. I was worried and concerned about the situations that would arise as a result of this decision, but I had been discussing with the agency and our members because I wanted to announce the news at least a little bit earlier so I wouldn’t surprise you with the sudden news.
Then, a blessing came my way. I am also taken aback, as I cannot do what I had planned with the agency and members, but this blessing has given me more strength.
I couldn’t lose any more time thinking about when or how I should announce this, so I mustered up my courage.
I’m really thankful for my members for genuinely congratulating me after hearing this news, and I deeply thank our fans for sending me so much undeserving love.
I will never forget this feeling of gratitude, do my best in my place without changing, and return the love you have given me.
Thank you always.
SM Entertainment responded with an official statement regarding his marriage. The agency’s statement is as follows:

Chen will continue to work hard as an artist.
We ask you to send Chen lots of blessings and messages of celebration.
A source from SM Entertainment confirmed that Chen’s fiancée is pregnant, however, due to her status as a non-celebrity, they will not reveal any details of the pregnancy:
Chen’s bride-to-be is pregnant. However, since she is not a celebrity, we hope everyone understands that revealing details such as how many months pregnant or her due date is difficult.
Please watch over Chen well, as he is being a responsible figure.
