Early this year, an announcement stated that Chanyeol’s military enlistment and then followed by Baekhyun. There are only 4 months available for EXO to prepare everything. Just after Xiumin and D.O.’s military discharge in December and before Chanyeol’s and Baekhyun’s enlistment in April and May. Nothing about a comeback.
