"Hello, this is Chen.
I have something to say to my fans, so I wrote this letter. I don’t know how to start, so I am very nervous. I wanted to be the first one to tell my fans who I love so much, so I am leaving this post even with my lacking sentences.
I have a girlfriend who I want to be with for the rest of my life.
I was worried and concerned with what would happen with my decision, but I wanted to let everyone know early so my members, the company and especially my fans who are proud of me wouldn’t be surprised by the sudden news, so I talked it out with my agency and the members.
During that time a blessing came to me. I was shocked because I wasn’t able to take part in the plans that I had made with the members and the company. But, this blessing gave me strength and courage. I thought about how and when I should reveal the news but I didn’t want to wait any longer so I am carefully revealing it to you all now.
I am grateful to my members for genuinely supporting and congratulating me and to our fans for always giving us so much love. I will always be grateful for all of you and will continue to do my best in the position I am in.
Thank you always".

"they cannot reveal how far she is in her pregnancy or any other related details." Reports have it that Chen will be marrying his girlfriend, a non-celebrity, in a private ceremony with close family and friends and that his fiancée is expecting a child. While we wait for more details, we send across best wishes for Jongdae and the bride-to-be.
