EXO‘s Chen enlisted in the military just last month after an eventful year including a marriage announcement, revelation that he’ll become a father, as well as new music.
And recently, a new photo of Chen at the military training camp emerged in the online community.
The photo shows Chen posting with all of his fellow soldiers and looking better than ever.
What particularly stands out is his short hair and tanned complexion.
Before enlisting in the military, Chen posted a handwritten letter saying goodbye to all his fans.
I’ll be sure to do my duty with a healthy mind and body so that I can return to you all as a better version of myself.
He even released the song “Hello” for fans who will miss him.
It’s only been a month since then, but fans are relieved to see that he’s doing well.
