Chuseok is a Korean festival like Thanksgiving that people of South Korea celebrate after the annual harvest. A public holiday is declared and most of the K-pop industry is on a break as artists go home to visit their families. It is also customary for idols to wish their fans and share season's greetings videos. And those who are in the military also get a break to spend time with their loved ones like EXO’s Chanyeol.

While most idols are inactive while they are completing their mandatory military service, they do come online to greet fans and wish them a Happy Chuseok. Some are still in training and are at the military base and so come online after earning phone privileges. Meanwhile, those who are almost at the end of their service, get to take a vacation and go home. Pentagon's Jinho is one such idol. Chuseok fell on September 21 this year and South Korea declared September 20 to 22 as public holidays.
