Baekhyun made the announcement through his post to EXO-L on Lysn.

Today is cloudy, so I want to say something nice, but I have something that I want to tell you all first, so I’m going to say it! I got my notice of military enlistment for May 6 today!

It’s not like we are going to be apart from each other forever, but I want to let you all have the chance to spend time with me in various ways until I join the army, so you can still feel like we are together through different means, rather than waiting, missing me, and being sad for a while.

So I will try harder and prepare many things! I know how hard waiting is, so I would rather say that I love you than ask you all to wait. I love you all!

— Baekhyun

SM Entertainment also confirmed the news in their short statement.

Baekhyun will enlist in the military on May 6. There will be no separate event and his enlistment will be held privately.
