EXO's XIUMIN begins mandatory military service today

EXO's XIUMIN enters the military service today, May 7.

On April 9, 2019, SM Entertainment confirms his military enlistment to be on May 7. The eldest member of the internationally famous group, EXO is the first one to take hiatus with the KPop entertainment world to complete the mandatory service. He will be serving as an active duty soldier for 21 months.

A few weeks before enlistment, Xiumin penned a heartfelt letter to his fans:

“Hello EXO-L. This is Xiumin!
Flowers have been blooming nicely these days. Have you gone out to see them? Flowers are appearing, the weather has gotten warmer, and yesterday was EXO’s seventh anniversary since debut! I feel gratitude to everyone and everything as I feel that EXO was born at a very nice time. Congratulations again to our members.
To be honest, I am writing today as there is important news I want to share with all of you first. Military duty! I am going to the military on May 7! ‘I will return in good health.’ I plan on arranging a time for us in the near future so that I can say these words to you directly. We have a CBX concert [in Japan] soon, and we will return after completing it successfully, so please wait just a bit.
Then let us all work hard on getting through today, as well!”
A day before his enlistment, he shared a photo of himself with his newly shaved head, ready for the 2-year training.

He expresses his wish to enter the training camp quietly that is why no details about the schedule was released. However, the members of EXO with TVXQ's Changmin with other important people in his life were there to send him off. Here's the photos shared by Park Chanyeol on his Instagram:

We wish you good luck and healthy services! We will see you again soon!
