"Wow...time flies. Congrats, Chen"
"I don't understand why people here are leaving negative comments. Did Chen ask the journalist to write about her birthday??"
"I actually admire the fans who are still faithfully by his side......."
"Come on, of course as a father they have to celebrate the daughter's birthday"
"Please don't hate on Chen here! It's their private affair!"
"Logically, even I would think that my daughter's birthday is more important than the fans"
"Not a fan, but congrats!!!"
"It must have been expensive to hold a birthday party at that place...not surprised that the press has covered it"
"I mean, it's not like he committed a crime..."
"Wait, isn't it still illegal to hold gathering with over 5 people? Did they seriously invite just 5 people or so to Silla...?"
