Baekhyun of EXO shared photos of himself with close-shaven hair, bidding a temporary farewell to his fans on Thursday (May 6) as he starts his military service.

The South Korean idol began his training the same day, which was also his birthday.

The exact time and location were not announced. After three weeks of training, he will start his alternative duty as a public service worker, as he has hypothyroidism.

He first shared the news of his enlisting in April, saying: “I know how hard waiting is so instead of asking you to wait for me, I’d want to say I love you.

"I love you and like you.”

The singer put out his third solo EP Bambi in March that became his second million-seller as a solo artiste.

He also has a string of music releases in store that hopefully will fill up the void, he told fans in a livestream last week.

He is the fifth member of the band to serve his military duty.

EXO announced that it will return with new music in the first half of this year. – The Korea Herald/Asia News Network
