EXO member Chen (28, real name Kim Jong-dae) announces the marriage and becomes ‘the first married member of EXO’.

On January 13th, SM Entertainment officially announced that “Chen has met someone precious to him and will be getting married. “

Chen also shared a handwritten letter announcing his marriage the day. Chen said, “I have a girlfriend whom I want to be with for a lifetime.” “I was worried and concerned about the situation 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 this sudden news”

Chen told his fiancee’s pregnancy “Then, a blessing came my way. I am also taken aback, as I can’t do what I had planned with the agency and members, but this blessing has given me more strength.”

Chen continued “I am really thankful to my members for genuinely congratulating me after hearing this news, and deeply thank our fans and I will show you in return for love.”

Chen became the first ‘a married man’ and ‘dad’ in EXO. However, the date of wedding and the birth of a bride is private.

SM said, “The bride is a non-celebrity, and the wedding and everything related to it will be held privately with only their families in attention. We ask fans for their kind understanding.”

SM said, “Chen will continue to work hard as an artist and we ask you to send Chen lots of blessings and messages of celebration.”

Chen debuted in 2012 with the EXO-M single album “What Is Love’ EXO-M prologue single 1st’, has made so many hit songs like ‘Growl’, ‘Addiction’, ‘Wolf’, ‘Ko Ko Bop’, ‘Tempo’, ‘Love Shot’. He also worked as an EXO’s main vocal and released a solo album last year.
