Baekhyun was born on May 6, 1992, in Bucheon, Gyeonggi Province, South Korea, to a couple whose names are undisclosed. He has an older brother, Byun Baekbeom.

Baekhyun started singing at a young age. At age of 9, he decided to become a professional singer and began to participate in various competitions to gain experience and meet other young singers. Baekhyun is a former student at Jungwon High School. He was a member of the school's band and attended several musical festivals, later winning an award at a local rock festival. During this period, he refused several propositions from talent agencies.

He was spotted by an agent of S.M. Entertainment as he was studying for his college musical entrance exams. He was proposed to join the label as a trainee, which he finally agreed to in 2011 through the S.M. Casting System. When asked about how it happened, Baekhyun answered, "That day I had an exam, I wanted to do music, I was in front of the school holding my notes and relaxing my vocal cords when suddenly someone touched my back. I'm not sure if you can call it luck, but that's how I fatefully entered SM."

He was selected in early 2011 to be part of SM's new boy group, EXO, he was one of the last members to join the group, and was revealed as the group's ninth member on January 30, 2012. He appeared in the 19th Teaser with Lay and Chen. His position in the group is lead singer of the Korean subgroup EXO-K as shown to the public in the music video for "What Is Love", which he sang with bandmate, D.O..

Baekhyun has cited Rain as one of his main influences and hopes to emulate Rain's "well-rounded" success.

In February 2014, it was confirmed that he was dating labelmate and Girls' Generation's leader, Kim Taeyeon. They were said to "Have started off as close sunbae-hoobae, the two recently developed feelings for each other and are in the beginning stages." In 2015, it was reported by a news article the pair had broken up, although SM never released a statement.
