EXO‘s Chanyeol may have quietly enlisted in the military on March 29, but he did not forget to continue the group’s tradition! Earlier today, he uploaded a group picture on LYSN, just in time for EXO’s 9th anniversary.

In the picture, each member placed a hand on Chanyeol’s shaved head. As far as farewells go, this one is too adorable!

The tradition started with Xiumin—the oldest member of the group—who was the first to enter the military. It’s evident from their expressions alone that it was going to stick!

Next up to enlist in the military was D.O. His picture is arguably one of the most hilarious in the group because of Kai‘s sneaky pose!

After D.O, the tradition continued with leader Suho. He closed his eyes and flashed a thumbs up sign as his members touched his head. Who knows what was going through his mind?
