Baekhyun, one of the main vocalists of the “Nations Pick” - K-pop boy band EXO - is known among fans for his strong bond with EXO-Ls, and coincidentally, exactly on the same day when the artist turned 27, his official website was updated with a new photo confirming his comeback with a second solo album. Fans believe it is his present to them on his birthday as further details of the album are yet to be revealed.
Confirming his special attitude to his fans Baekhyun spent two hours talking on a live stream with fans, singing for them, eating snacks and fooling around - mainly because the regular birthday fan meetings for SM Entertainment artists are not currently possible.
