EXO's Chen is Getting Married To 'Pregnant' Non-Celebrity Girlfriend
EXO's Chen is getting married to his non-celebrity girlfriend. He also hints at a pregnancy.
South Korean boy band Exo’s Chen on Monday (Jan 13) has confirmed that he is planning to get married to his non-celebrity girlfriend.
Chen, whose real name Kim Jong-dae, posted an image of his handwritten letter to EXO’s fan cafe in which he wrote about how nervous he was to announce his wedding plans. The K-pop star also hinted at a pregnancy.
His letter, as translated by Korean entertainment website Soompi, reads:
“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.”
While there is no direct mention of pregnancy, reports say that a source close to the K-pop star’s agency SM Entertainment said: “it is true that Chen’s bride-to-be is pregnant.”
Chen is part of the nine-man group EXO which debuted in 2012. EXO is one of the most popular K-pop boy bands in the industry. The group’s notable songs include “Growl,” “Love Shot,” “Ko Ko Bop,” and “Obsession,” among others.
