Before enlisting in the military on May 7, K-pop star Xiumin has received send-off messages from his fellow EXO members during his fan meeting on May 4.

Suho, Chen, Chanyeol, Baekhyun, D.O, Sehun, and Kai joined the 29-year-old singer on stage to share a memorable moment with him - earning much adore from the EXO-Ls who flocked to the Jamsil Arena in Seoul for the event.

Kai, who went to the fan meeting right after he arrived from the United Kingdom, said a touching message that could well embody what the group and their fans wish for Xiumin: "Don't get hurt and come back safely. I love you."

Meanwhile, Lay - currently in China - also joined the event first through a recorded video message shown earlier in the program and then through a phone call during the members' surprise appearance.

In both his messages, he got nothing but praise for his reliable hyung. "To me, Xiumin is good hyung. He organizes everything that I can't, he's very detailed," he said in the video.

During the phone call, he added: "Minseok hyung, I'm always thankful for you. I'm sorry that I couldn't be with you a lot. Take care of yourself and return from the military safely. I miss EXO members a lot."

Suho, on the other hand, reassured their fans that their group will always be there to give them the entertainment they deserve. He said: "Whether it's five, 10, or 20 years, EXO will always sing, dance, and perform for you. Thank you and we love you, EXO-L!"

As for his parting words, Xiumin asked EXO-Ls to wait for his return.

"Wait for me. I will return safely. Let's show EXO-L a complete performance when I come back," he promised.

Earlier in the concert, Xiumin gave fans a memorable set of performances, with his setlist including EXO hits and his first ever live rendition of his upcoming solo single, "You."

Set for release on May 9, the track serves as his parting gift as he undergoes a two-year hiatus because of the mandatory military enlistment. It is also his first ever release as a solo act.

"You" is part of the third season of SM Entertainment's digital musical venture, SM STATIONs.
