When is EXO's Baekhyun coming back? SM Entertainment confirms return, fans think it will be IU vs Baekhyun again
SM Entertainment has reportedly confirmed that EXO Baekhyun is coming back with his solo project in March and EXO fans have mixed feelings about it. On one hand, the comeback of the million seller ‘genius idol’ who made a new record for solo artists in South Korea in 2020 is the biggest news of excitement. However, EXO-Ls also fear that this can be Baekhyun’s last project before enlisting.
The news of Baekyun’s comeback in March also establishes the ritual of another IU vs Baekhyun. K-pop fans took it to Twitter to share that this will be the third time popular K-pop soloist IU will be having a comeback at the same time as Baekhyun. It started with IU’s ‘Blueming’ vs EXO’s ‘Obsession', BOL4’s ‘Leo’ featuring Baekhyun vs IU’s ‘Eight’ featuring BTS’ Suga, and the third time which will be this March-end.
