When Chen and Chanyeol showed up in the VCR, fans in the venue went primarily silent, besides a few yelling to make up for the silence.

Chen and Chanyeol have received massive hate from fans over the last few years. Chanyeol was the target of cheating allegations that led netizens to launch full-blown attacks against the EXO member. In Chen’s case, some fans demanded he leave the group after he announced he would be getting married to his pregnant fiancé in 2019 and have protested his activities since.

International fans have been loud in showing their support for the pair, as domestic fans attempted to have both expelled from the group.

Some have even suggested that SM Entertainment tour the group outside Korea, where fans will “scream for all of them.

The second night of the fan meeting is scheduled to take place on April 8.
