Welcome back, Baekhyun!

After a long 641 days, EXO‘s Baekhyun is finally set to finish his military enlistment today!

Baekhyun first enlisted on May 6, 2021, and joined the public service division for his time spent there. Because of this, he spent longer in the military than other K-Pop idols who started their enlistment period around the same time, which made it seem like he was gone much longer than he was to a lot of fans!

His official discharge date is February 5, 2023, and Baekhyun will be the sixth of eight EXO members (apart from Lay, who doesn’t need to enlist) to finish their military enlistment period. Kai and Sehun are the two remaining members who have yet to begin theirs, though it likely will happen sometime soon.

Fans are hopeful, however, that all of EXO’s members will take part in the group’s alleged comeback in the first half of 2023 now that Baekhyun is back!
