The recent update of EXO’s Chen, who joined the army last month, has caught the attention.
Recently, a photo of Chen was released online. The photo is believed to have been taken and released by the Defense Ministry. In the picture, Chen is shoulder-to-shoulder with his fellow soldiers. Short hair and a bright smile stand out.
Chen enlisted in the military on October 26. Prior to entering the boot camp, Chen posted a handwritten letter on the fan community Lysn, and wrote, “I will do my best to fulfill my military obligation with a healthy mind and body so that I can greet you after my service with a better, more improved side of myself. I hope that you will stay as beautiful and healthy as you are now!! I will always thank you, and love you.”
With this, Chen became the 4th EXO member to start his military service, following Xiumin, D.O and Suho.
Chen debuted as EXO in 2012. Earlier this year, he announced the news of his marriage and premarital pregnancy, surprising fans. In April, he welcomed a baby girl into his family, becoming the first married member and the first father of the group.
