EXO’s Xiumin has left fans the most beautiful gift just days after his military enlistment.
On the afternoon of May 7, Xiumin quietly entered the recruit training center in Yanggu County of Gangwon Province. He didn’t want a big send off but his cello EXO members were there to bid him farewell. Chanyeol posted photos of the day on his Instagram saying: “While you protect the country, we will protect EXO and EXO-L. I will visit you together with Jong In (Kai).”
Before enlisting Xiumin had posted photos on his Instagram dedicated to his fans with captions like; “You are all of the reasons that I walk,” which appear to be lyrics from his track “You.”
On May 9 at 6 p.m. KST, Xiumin dropped his solo track “You” along with its music video through SM STATION. “You” is a ballad that features Xiumin’s soothing voice, and is his way of thanking those around him who give him strength.
You can stream “You” on Spotify now and watch the MV below.
