EXO-Ls are doing their best after spotting hashtags demanding EXO Chen leave the group trend in twitter Korea.
EXO Chen had personally revealed that he’s getting married to his non-celebrity girlfriend and that they’re expecting a baby soon last night. The shocking news quickly became the top trending news in South Korea with contrasting opinions from Korean EXO-Ls, some believe he’s betraying the team and affecting them with his announcement while others are sending him congratulatory messages.
As of January 14 (KST), Some Korean EXO-Ls began trending #김종대_탈퇴해 which means (Kim Jong Dae_leave the group), it has over 66,000 tweets as of this writing. International EXO-Ls have been trying to do damage control and spam this hashtag with positive messages letting it unknowingly rise even higher on Korea trends on twitter.
As a response to the hate Chen has been receiving for announcing his marriage news, other Korean and international EXO-Ls began trending this hashtag #엑소지켜 which means ‘protect EXO.’ Fans have been doing their best trending this hashtag instead to show Chen how much they love and care for him and how much they want him to be a part of this group. Its currently the number one top trending hashtag on twitter Korea.
Fans are scared that Chen would see the trending hashtags and be shocked. Many Korean EXO-Ls have expressed their thoughts on his sudden marriage news and why they believe he should leave EXO not to cause them harm, however, there are other Korean and international EXO-Ls who strongly disagree; here are some of their tweets:
Dear korean EXOL, I saw your message but I don’t agree, Chen is important part of the team. In Latin America we are happy and we don’t care about the bad comments, the more important is the group, is EXO and EXO without Chen, not is EXO. We are don’t a weak Fandom.#엑소지켜 pic.twitter.com/Ije1CQjwL1
