According to his agency, SM Entertainment, EXO’s Kai, real name Kim Jong-in, is planning to enlist in the military this May. On May 7th, the K-pop singer will begin his mandatory military service, which is compulsory of all able-bodied men in South Korea.
Kai is the sixth EXO member to join the military, joining Xiumin, D.O., Suho, and Chen. His enlistment will put a short halt to his career as a performer, but he is anticipated to return to the industry once his duty is completed.

Fans can only hope for Kai’s health and safety as he prepares to undertake his military service, and look forward to his comeback as a performer in the future.
