EXO members in Military in 2021
It’s a blessing for fans and this is a gift that EXO is giving their fandom. Baekhyun and Chanyeol recorded their parts before enlisting in the military. Sadly Suho and Chen will not be part of Don’t Fight The Feeling as they are currently serving in the military. Well unless they have any surprises left for the fans, you never know. Fans get to rejoice as D.O. and Xiumin were discharged from the military and they are part of the new album. Sehun and Kai are the remaining EXO members who have yet to enlist in the military. It’s mandatory for South Korean men to enlist in the military to serve their countries and idols are not exempted from this. Kudos to EXO members for successfully completing their military services and fans wish the members serving the military presently get a healthy discharge!
EXO’s Don’t Fight The Feeling
The seven-member EXO comeback will surely miss Chen and Suho. However, this album is a surprise gift for fans as Lay will be back in this album. Lay has been on hiatus from most of the EXO activities since 2016. Lay is joining to celebrate to 9th anniversary of the group. EXO made its official debut on 8th April 2012 under SM Entertainment’s banner. The fans have been eagerly waiting for the comeback as this is a comeback season and all the groups have made successful comebacks.
Fans are excited as D.O. and Xiumin will be back from the military and this will be their first project after discharge. Fans were eagerly waiting for the members’ safe discharge. On top of that, Lay joining this comeback is a treat for the fans. EXO is a South Korean boyband that is immensely popular globally and has a very dedicated fanbase in China, Japan, and other countries.
