EXO Members Send Xiumin Off With Heartwarming Surprise And Messages During “Xiuweet Time”
Get your tissue box ready, EXO-L, because we have some emotional stories to share about EXO!
As everyone knows, Xiumin will enter boot camp on May 7, becoming the first EXO member to start his mandatory service. Which also means he will take a two-year hiatus in the process.
Before he officially bids a temporary goodbye, the singer decided to give fans a special farewell party through his solo fan meeting Xiuweet Time held on May 4. Just like how EXO-L intend to send him off with the sweetest memories, his dongsaengs also did not let the opportunity to slip as they came together on stage to surprise their eldest hyung.

Suho, Chen, Baekhyun, Chanyeol, D.O, Kai, and Sehun joined Xiumin on stage to greet EXO-L together for the last time in a while. The members relayed their well-wishes for their hyung as he sets himself up to join the army and fulfill the duty expected of all abled-bodied men of South Korea.
They commended Xiumin for his performances during the fan meeting. They also hoped for him to be healthy and safe, come back quickly without getting hurt, and show a better image to fans when he returns.
