    The famous idol is currently doing his mandatory military service.

    The vocalist and oldest member of popular K-pop boy band EXO Xiumin (real name Kim Min-seok) is celebrating his 30th (31th in Korean chronology) birthday on 26 March.

    Usually, K-pop fans are truly supportive and not afraid to show their love with huge banners, bus ads all over the world, or even make a LED ad on Times square. Taking into account the fact that Xiumin is currently in the army, the range of celebrations this year was a little bit smaller. But even so, the main metro stations in Seoul and LED screens in the city were dedicated to the senior member of EXO. SMTOWN, where the main store for SM artists is situated, including EXO - arranged the chairs to spell out Xiumin's nickname as a congratulation.

    ​The official app for EXO's fans shared the post, dedicated to Xiumin as well, looking for the end of his military service.

    ​And of course Twitter was flooded with congratulations from EXO- L (the official name for the fandom) from all over the world as fans trended hashtags dedicated to their favourite member.
