Byun Baekhyun (Korean: 변백현; Hanja: 边伯贤), born May 6, 1992 in Bucheon, Gyeonggi Province, South Korea), better known as simply Baekhyun, is a Korean singer and one of the main vocalists of the popular South Korean-Chinese boy group EXO and the main vocalist of its sub-group EXO-K. He has been an MC of Inkigayo since February 2014 with fellow member and leader of EXO-K, Suho. He is currently signed to SM Entertainment in South Korea and Avex Trax in Japan.
Baekhyun is a former pupil of Jungwon High School. He has a brother, Baekbeom, who is 7 years older than him. He was a member of the school's band and attended several musical festivals, later winning an award at a local rock festival. He was studying for his college musical entrance exams when he joined S.M. Entertainment in 2011 through the S.M. Casting System.
Baekhyun was one of the last members to join EXO, and was revealed as the group's ninth member on January 30, 2012 after training for 1 year. Byun has cited Rain as one of his main influences and hopes to emulate Rain's "well-rounded" success.
In June 19, 2014, Baekhyun and fellow S.M. artist Tae-yeon from Girls' Generation were reported by Korean media outlet Dispatch to be dating and SM Entertainment confirmed that they had been in a relationship since February.
