Every South Korean man is bound to serve their country, and joining military service is a must for anyone who is physically capable.

4 EXO members, Xiumin, Suho, Chen, and D.O, have already served in the military. Chanyeol and Baekhyun are still serving, and Chanyeol will soon get discharged on September 28, 2022. Kai and Sehun are yet to join the army, and Lay will not work for the Korean military as he belongs to China.

There is a fixed age where South Korean men can skip military service. Depending on the age, these EXO members were and are in the military.

Suho and Xiumin’s enlistment dates are the same, meaning he was enlisted on 7th May 2019. But he was not discharged as quickly as Xiumin. The singer was released on 13th February 2022.
Lay doesn’t have to serve in the Korean military as he is Chinese by birth.
Baekhyun enlisted on the 6th of May 2021, on his birthday. Being a patient with hypothyroidism, he is not working as an active-duty soldier but as a public service worker. He will be discharged on 5th February 2023.
