Chen uploaded a picture of a handwritten letter on Monday afternoon through his fan community named Lysn.

“I wanted to tell the fans - who have given me so much love - first and honestly, ” he wrote.

“I have a girlfriend that I would like to spend the rest of my life with. I am worried about what will happen in the future because of this decision, but I wanted to give the news to my fans as early as possible.”

He also revealed that the bride was pregnant, alluding to the baby as a “blessing.”

“I was in talks with the company and the rest of the members when a blessing came [...] It gave me the strength. I couldn’t waste any more time thinking about when and how to say this. So I gathered my courage.”

He finished the letter by thanking fans and the other members of the group for their support.
