EXO member Chen turns 23 today. The SM Entertainment talent has acquired a lot of achievements along the way and just recently, the singer reached a new milestone during the music reality show titled “King of Mask Singer.” Meanwhile, rumours are hounding the EXO member that he is planning to terminate his contract and go solo, leaving EXO behind. Is there any truth to this at all? Read below for the full details.
Amidst the success that he’s been getting, Chen has somehow dropped hints that he is leaving SM Entertainment with his statement during the show. He said, “I have always wanted to be judged on my vocals as Chen the singer, rather than as a member of EXO. Even though I was eliminated, this stage means a lot to me.”
Since then, speculations started to spread that he’s terminating his contract with SM Entertainment, which means that he is also ending his membership with the Kpop group EXO. If that happens, Chen would be the first Korean member of the band to leave along with its 3 Chinese members Kris, Luhan and Tao who have already left the group. Will he follow their footsteps? That’s the question that fans have been asking since he aired his statement in “King of Mask Singer.”
Before jumping into conclusions, it must be noted that Chen hasn’t released an official statement yet on his contract with SM Entertainment. Do you want Chen to leave? Or do you want him to stay? Or would you rather see him as a solo artist? Let us know by posting your comments below!
