To the knowledge of most fans, EXO's Baekhyun enlisted in the military this year in May. But he is still releasing content towards fans as he filmed a lot of videos to be released once a month.

Notably, military service in South Korea lasts for 18 to 21 months. 

But only 7 months into Baekhyun's enlistment, SM Entertainment has already dropped an official statement on Baekhyun's YouTube channel to tell fans that the videos that were uploaded from EXO Baekhyun's enlistment date onwards would be removed.

SM Entertainment's announcement is as follows:

"This is SM Entertainment. We wish to inform you that KoongTube's contents will be removed until Baekhyun's discharge from the military. We have been releasing one video per month all this while, as a way of repaying the fans a little bit, for the love they have sent Baekhyun. The videos were filmed before his enlistment. It is not against the law to release videos that were filmed and produced before enlistment. However, in order to prevent unpredictable misunderstandings that differ from our original intent as above, we have decided to delete all the videos that were uploaded after his enlistment. We hope fans will understand."

The reason for this is because, in South Korea, those in the military earning an official salary outside of the military is prohibited. Simply put, male military soldiers are not allowed to have a job aside from doing their military service.
