EXO-Ls, prepare your tissues—Chen just announced that he will be starting his military enlistment on October 26 through a handwritten letter that he posted on his social media account.


In a translation by Soompi, the letter reads:

“Hello, this is Chen. Are you all doing well and staying healthy these days, when the daily temperature swings are especially severe?

The summer heat has passed, and in the blink of an eye, it’s already autumn. The reason I’m writing to all of you today is to inform you that I’ll be enlisting in the military on October 26 and to at least say goodbye to you through this letter.

During my time in service, I will do my utmost to fulfill my duties in good physical and mental health, so that I can show you growth and improvement when I return and greet you again. At that time, I hope that all of you will also stay as beautiful and healthy as you are now!! I’m always grateful to you, and I love you.”

Chen is the fourth EXO member who will serve in the military, following Suho who enlisted this year, and D.O and Xiumin in 2019. Chanyeol and Baekhyun, who were also born in 1992, are also set to enlist soon. Chen announced his marriage to his non-celebrity girlfriend in January, and welcomed his first child in April.

Before he bids goodbye, the K-pop idol just released his new single, "Hello."


We wish you all the best, Chen!
