Baekhyun of EXO has announced that he will join the military on May 6.
Baekhyun announced the news via a Lysn post to EXO-L.
Today is cloudy, so I want to say something nice, but I have something that I want to tell you all first, so I’m going to say it! I got my notice of military enlistment for May 6 today!
It’s not as if we’re going to be apart forever, but I want to give you all the opportunity to spend time with me in a variety of ways until I join the army, so you can feel connected to me in a variety of ways rather than waiting, missing me, and being sad for a while.
So I will try harder and prepare many things! I know how hard waiting is, so I would rather say that I love you than ask you all to wait. I love you all!Baekhyun
Additionally, SM Entertainment confirmed the news in a brief statement.
