EXO’s eldest member, XIUMIN is set to enlist in South Korea’s armed forces on May 7, 2019.
Some Japanese fans were able to bid him farewell during his EXO-CBX Magical Circus tour last April 16, 17, 27 to 29.

Fans have expressed their sadness as XIUMIN will be away for two years and wanted to enlist quietly, without any special goodbye events.
However, XIUMIN will leave his fans a song as a gift, titled ‘You’ from SM STATION. It will be premiering at his upcoming fan-meeting ‘Xiuweet Time’ on May 4th—ahead of its release on May 9th, 6PM (KST).
