Group EXO’s Chanyeol (29) will join the military in March.
On the 26th, EXO’s agency SM Entertainment said, “Chanyeol will join the army on March 29th.” The place and time of enlistment shall not be disclosed, nor shall any additional events be held.
As a result, Chanyeol is the fifth member of EXO to fulfill his military duty. Xiumin and D.O were discharged from the military service, while Suho and Chen are currently serving in the military.
Chanyeol, who made his debut as an EXO member in 2012, was loved by music fans for his hit songs such as “MAMA,” “Growl,” “Addiction,” “CALL ME BABY,” “Ko Ko Bop,” “Monster” and “Tempo.”
Since then, Chanyeol has expanded his career as an actor by appearing in the films “Long Live,” “So I Married an Anti-Fan,” the drama “Missing Nine” and “Memories of the Alhambra Palace.”
Chanyeol, who has run the popularity of the place to give since his debut, faced the biggest crisis in October last year when he was embroiled in a controversy over his personal life with a revelation by a netizen who claimed to be his ex-girlfriend. Internet users claimed that Chanyeol had an affair with more than 10 women, including girl groups, YouTubers, dancers, flight attendants and BJs, while dating him for three years, and also presented photos taken with a man believed to be Chanyeol.
Chanyeol, who remained silent without making an official position at the time, posted a lengthy article on the 24th and apologized directly to the fans. It has been four months since the controversy over his personal life.
Chanyeol said, “I’m so sorry that I can’t express it in writing, and it was a time when I thought a lot about EXO-L.” “I’ll think about how to protect and repay EXO-L’s precious hearts countless times and I won’t give you any worries again.” And I will do my best to make it clear that your faith is not wrong.
“I remember my first time nine years ago and I don’t forget it.
I will never forget the mindset I had then. “I will keep the love that you have sent me so much.”
Fans told the news of Chanyeol’s enlistment, “I will adapt well wherever I go,” “I look forward to Chanyeol coming back cooler,” and “I hope you have a safe trip.” “I will always wait for you,” he said, cheering for Chanyeol, who is about to join the military.
