On April 9, Xiumin posted an announcement at the official fan club website.
He wrote, "I am writing to you today because I have something important that I want to share with you. I will be enlisting in the military on May 7.
I plan on preparing an event just for us, where I will be able to say 'I will return safely' to you face-to-face.
Flowers are blooming beautifully these days. I wonder if you are going flower-viewing. Yesterday was EXO's 7th anniversary. I am thankful to everyone and everything that EXO was born in a very nice season.
EXO-CBX's concert is coming up soon. I will wrap it up well and return, so please wait for me."
Meanwhile, SM Entertainment stated that Xiumin will enlist as an active duty soldier on May 7. As he wanted to enlist quietly, the time and place will not be disclosed.
