Mar 20,2019
Chen will begin a career as a solo artist seven years after he made his debut as a member of popular boy group Exo, his management agency said Tuesday.

The singer, whose real name is Kim Jong-dae, will drop his debut solo EP, titled “April, and a flower,” on April 1, SM Entertainment said.

Chen’s work as part of Exo, which hit the K-pop scene in 2012, includes “Growl,” “Overdose,” “Wolf,” “Ko Ko Bop,” “Tempo” and “Love Shot.”

The 27-year-old singer is also a member of the band’s subunit Exo-CBX along with Baekhyun and Xiumin. Exo-CBX is scheduled to go on a Japanese tour next month. Yonhap
