시위 잘 다녀왔습니다!
끝나고 다같이 모여 버려진 물건들
분리수거와 정리까지 싹 마쳤습니다
2차 시위 열리면 그때 또 만나요

K-EXOL placed a banner calling for Chen’s departure from EXO, as they believe he has contaminated the group’s image with his new civil status and they believe he betrayed the fandom’s confidence by revealing the news of his romance. WTF
