EXO‘s Chen has just released a new statement to EXO-L about how sorry he is to them after his sudden marriage and upcoming child announcement.
In his statement, Chen apologized to EXO-L for the sudden news, and how he was sad to see his words hurt others.
Hello, this is Chen.
I have been thinking a lot about how to express my feelings, and I am finally leaving a message to EXO-L. I was worried that I would hurt you with some awkward words, but I would like to say I am sorry to all of the fans who have been waiting for me. I would like to apologize to EXO-L who must have been surprised and embarrassed by my sudden news.
When I first started writing [the original letter], I had a lot of thoughts of what to say to EXO-L, who been with me since the start of my career. But I thought I should be the one to tell everyone first, so I wrote the letter… Unlike what I was feeling, I was very sad to see that my lacking words hurt and disappointed others.
I don’t know if my feelings could be conveyed well, but I am truly grateful for the love that you all have given me up until now, and I know better than anyone that I am where I am right now because of that love.
I am sorry that I am apologizing to you all so late, and I will continue to work hard to show you a good side of myself.
