EXO's Xiumin, Chen, D.O, and Lay also previously told fans they won't be accepting gifts, and it looks like Sehun is the next member to express the same sentiment. Sehun wrote to EXO-L:
"I'm greeting EXO-L for the first time in a while. I'm writing this letter because I've been thinking a lot lately, and I wanted to express them to you in words. Looking back, I feel like I've received so much love, and I'm always grateful to you for that. If I think about it though, I think we'd all feel warmer if we shared that love not just with me, but with others as well, right? I'm personally doing my best to share that love though it may not be much help. I think we'd all be happier than now if you shared that love you give to me to people who need it more. There are a lot of people around us who need more love. From now on, I'm only thinking of accepting your warm thoughts instead of gifts on my birthday. I think giving back to those in need and giving them hope will be the greatest birthday present I can get. I think this will be something that both me and all the fans reading this will be proud of. I also wrote this to express my thanks to you all. Thank you for reading this. Always be healthy, and have a great time with your families. Happy Lunar New Year."
