EXO Chen has finally broken his silence and updated fans for the first time following his statement about his marriage news last month.
EXO Chen was attacked heavily by Korean EXO-Ls for his sudden marriage announcement, many thought he betrayed the team and demanded his departure from EXO. They even held a physical protest and have been active on social media demanding SM release an official response about his departure from EXO.
Despite their demands, SM and EXO Chen didn’t respond back, until now.
On February 19, EXO Chen released a second statement apologizing for the sudden news he revealed on January 13, here is his statement:
“Hello, this is Chen.
I’ve been thinking a lot about how to express my feelings and I am finally writing a message to EXO-L. I was worried that I’ll hurt you with my bad words, but I would like to say that I am sorry for all the fans who have been waiting for me.
I would like to apologize to EXO-Ls who must’ve been surprised and embarrassed by my sudden news.
When I first wrote my letter [the original letter], I thought a lot about how I should say it to EXO-Ls, who have walked with me since the start. But I thought I should be the one who tells you all first, so I wrote the letter. I was very hurt to see fans were disappointed and hurt by my words, which were lacking and hastily unlike my intentions.
I don’t know if my feelings could be conveyed well, but I am grateful for all the love you’ve given me until now, and I know better than anyone else that I am where I am right now because of that love.
I want to apologize once again for expressing my apologies to you so late. Also, I will continue to work hard to show you the good side of myself.”
What do you think of his apology? do you think it was necessary?
