March 29, 2021 may be one of the sad days for EXOL, EXOfans. Especially for fans of Exo Chanyeol, because the multi-talented rapper began to depart conscription. Today Chanyeol began entering the training center to receive basic military training, then immediately carried out active duty in the military.
Fans who grieved to release his idol then crowded to create a hashtag #AlwaysYoursChanyeol and #OurPrideChanyeol until it became trending Twitter.
“To Chanyeol, we will miss you, wait, and cheer for you. Take good care of yourself, serve well and return safely. Wish you the best,” wrote an account called @pikuchen.
Chanyeol is exo’s fifth registered member to undergo wamil. Previously Xiumin, D.O, Suho, and Chen had already undergone wamil, and Exo Chanyeol himself departed to carry out his country duties in private without informing fans where and where.
Previously, he had made sure to go through the wamil during the press conference of his latest film “The Box”.
“I am very experienced and relieved that I can fulfill a good project and put out a movie before signing up,” said Chanyeol, visiting Lovekpop95, Monday (3/29/2021).
“I am ready to go, will be healthy and will not get hurt,” Chanyeol exo reported from Korea Dispatch media.
Serving in the military for about 18 months, he will follow other EXO members who are still in the military, namely Chen and Suho. In addition to being active in music, rapper EXO also proved his acting skills.
In The Box, he played the character Ji-hoon. In fact, he once said his difficulty in playing his role as a quiet figure in the film.
“I talk a lot and act fast, but Ji-hoon is very quiet. Often, when talking with Jo Dal-hwan, I can only look at him, when I really want to talk,” chanyeol exo said as quoted by Soompi.
