Are Any EXO Members Married?

“I have a girlfriend who I want to spend the rest of my life with,” he wrote in the letter. “At first, I was worried about the consequences of my decision. But I was discussing it with the label and the members on how to deliver this, so you won’t be surprised out of the blue.
He continued, “I appreciate my members who genuinely congratulated me, and thank you very much for your love and support. I will be forever grateful for your love, and I will do my best in my place, as usual, to reciprocate your love. Thank you always.”
Since then, the couple celebrated the birth of a second child and finally tied the knot in October 2023.
