EXO‘s Chanyeol and Baekhyun revealed EXO’s birthday rule in the 2019 EXO-L Japan Official Book. Back in September 2018, Sehun asked Chen to go out for dinner with the members to celebrate Chen’s 26th birthday.
Then, Sehun shared a group photo of the members enjoying Sushi on Chen’s Birthday. The members discussed on EXO’s Midwinter Night, Suho couldn’t attend due to a musical schedule and D.O. was chosen to pay for the dinner since he was the last to arrive.
However, Chanyeol and Baekhyun confirmed Chen was the one who paid for the dinner. According to Chanyeol and Baekhyun, it is a special rule the members made for themselves.
Q. Sehun posted a photo of Chen’s birthday dinner on social media. How was it?
BH: We had sushi! Suho couldn’t make it because he had the musical performance but everyone else joined.
CY: Chen was the first to arrive even though it was his birthday
BK: Like he was checking if everyone was coming or not.
CY: I was next to arrive and D.O. was last. Chen paid for the dinner.
BK: It was a rule we made for ourselves.
CY: Everybody’s busy with their own schedule so if the members had to take time off to celebrate someone, that person needs to grab the check. Time is valuable (LOL).
BK: It’s a strange rule. We decided on Suho’s last birthday. And we ordered so many expensive dishes on purpose (LOL).
We’re sure Chen didn’t mind treating out his members to dinner at all. Only thing that counts is how the members take time away from their busy schedule to celebrate each other’s birthdays!
