His personal plans did not go down well with obsessive EXO fans who wanted Chen to be removed from the band. However, he received support from some genuine fans and a couple of K-pop celebrities.
In the same year, on April 26, Chen and his wife welcomed their first child, a baby girl. They had announced their second pregnancy in November 2021, a year and a half after their first child’s birth.
Hearty congratulations to Chen and his family!
