Chogiwa – Today, March 29 is the official date for EXO Chanyeol to start serving his country. EXO-Ls around the world have been waiting for the special EXO enlistment tradition. A tradition that was started when Xiumin enlisted in 2019. It is a unique tradition that only belongs to EXO. EXO members will stand around the enlisted member and touch his bald head for a group photo. Well, aside from that so-called group photos, EXO Chanyeol’s special gift for EXO-L on his enlistment day is more than enough.
EXO Chanyeol’s Special Gift for EXO-L on His Enlistment Day
What is the so-called EXO Chanyeol’s special gift for EXO-L? Well, a day before, Chanyeol updated his bubble with a message for EXO-Ls. He wrote, “I have prepared a present, so don’t worry and sleep well, okay!?”.
The present turned out to be a short video uploaded by NNG Studio on its official YouTube Channel. The video showed Chanyeol visiting all the birthday ads prepared by EXO-Ls for him at 5 AM in the morning. Chanyeol always says that he is so thankful for having EXO-Ls who trust him. He also thought about how to protect the precious heart of EXO-L and how to repay it. Well, it seems like Chanyeol finally found a way to repay it and he repaid it big, more than anyone could deserve.
At the end of the video, with his handwritten, he wrote “I am doing well, everyone!” with a heart symbol and also “Let’s meet every 27th” with another heart symbol.
Chanyeol Is the Fifth Member of EXO to Enlist
The first member of EXO who enlists was Xiumin and then D.O. in 2019. Then followed by Suho and Chen in 2020. This year, 2021, not only Chanyeol but Baekhyun has confirmed via IG Live that he is also going to enlist this year.
There is some unconfirmed information regarding why there is no EXO tradition group photo this year? One of the reasons is probably due to Covid-19 which only allows a maximum of 4 people to meet up at the same time. Instead of spending the enlistment day with EXO members, Chanyeol prefers to have it with his family. Some pictures just regulating on the internet showing Chanyeol is sent off to the military by his lovely family.
Well, though there is no special EXO photo group this year, the fact that there is EXO Chanyeol special gift for EXO-L means everything. The video has shown how Chanyeol really cares about his fans. Sincerely, he showed how special his fans are for him.
Thank you Chanyeol for the gift. Please return from the military healthy and safely. Let’s meet every 27th!
