Baekhyun Continued EXO’s Tradition with Sehun Only, Why?
Fans once a bit disappointed when there was no EXO’s tradition picture when Chanyeol enlisted on April 29th. Though actually there was a picture. However, it was the picture is from the shooting location for EXO’s upcoming MV. To avoid spoiler, they released the picture 10 days after Chanyeol’s enlistment date.
In Baekhyun’s case, the reason why there was only Sehun in the picture is due to Covid-19. They should follow the health protocol to avoid problems in the future. Actually, there are three EXO’s members in the military now. They are Suho, Chen, and Chanyeol. So, remain five members left, Xiumin and D.O. who have finished their service in the military. Then, there is Lay who is currently in China. Kai is probably the busiest of them all. It seems like his schedule is not easy to manage. Kai didn’t join the group photo when Chen left for the military, instead, Suho joined the group. Fortunately, there is Sehun who is available to continue EXO’s military tradition for Baekhyun.
However, fans are super grateful that Baekhyun continued EXO’s tradition. Though with Sehun only. It means they really care about their fans. They know that fans have been waiting for the photo on the enlistment day.
