Fans on Twitter are sad about this latest development. Many took to the social networking site to share their grievances, their faith in him and wishing him the best. "Chanyeol was going to the army. I hope he completes his military service in a healthy way. and we will be able to see the members and junmyeon as we see him off," one tweeted.

"It's okay let him enlist properly, give lots of love to Chanyeol.. don't let untrue news about him appear during his military service and return, n pls don't spread bad or untrue news to the next members who haven't enlisted yet. I am tired his smile is very charming," a user said.

"Before we know it, they will all be done with their military service and we'll be having a full comeback in due time. So, let's wait some more, endure more, and show them all the love and support they deserve. Serve well, Chanyeol. WE LOVE YOU, EXO," another tweeted.






Fans already can't wait for him to come back. "imagine chanyeol’s massive glow up aftee his military service! i mean look at minseok and kyungsoo!! they both look so healthy and look even more handsome," a fan said.

"the earlier you go, the faster you come back, the sooner we see you. i'll be waiting. i really expected this just not this early. once chanyeol and baekhyun enlist, im gonna go work my ass off harder so ill be in kr once u guys finish your military service," another user shared.




An anonymous social media user had claimed that she was Chanyeol’s former girlfriend and alleged that during their relationship, the K-pop star had cheated on her several times. On social media, these allegations against the rapper caused a lot of furor. For the longest time, Chanyeon did not address these allegations from the anonymous user at all, till he finally wrote the letter in which he wrote opening up to fans about his controversy and expressing gratitude.

On February 24, he wrote, "I’ve felt so truly sorry that I couldn’t express it in writing and I thought a lot about EXO-L during that time. I worried and thought a lot about how I could express my feelings to EXO-L in words," adding, "I was so grateful for the posts and letters of support you sent me on my birthday. As I read each of them, I felt even more sorry and grateful."
