Kai’s military enlistment on May 11th was announced by SM on May 3rd, much to the surprise of fans who expected him to participate in more group and solo activities. According to SM’s statement, “Kai was originally preparing for EXO’s comeback this year, but due to a recent change in regulations by the Military Manpower Administration, he will enter the army recruit training center on May 11th and serve as a public service worker after receiving basic military training.”

To give his fans a chance to say goodbye before he enlists, Kai will be holding a free fan meeting on May 9th at Yes24 Live Hall in Seoul. However, due to limited space, only members of EXO’s official paid fan club EXO L-ACE 3 and ACE 2 can pre-register for the event. For those who are unable to attend, the fan meeting will be live-streamed on EXO’s YouTube channel.
Kai made a comeback in March with the song and album “Rover”
