Last May, EXO‘s Suho enlisted in the military as a public service worker to fulfill his duty as a South Korean citizen. Since then, EXO-Ls have been patiently counting down the days until his return, with very little updates for over a year.
Therefore, it comes as no surprise that fans were absolutely overjoyed when Suho finally posted not once, but twice to his Instagram story on July 15.
The first image was a breathtaking pink and purple sunset with a rainbow poking through the clouds plus the caption, “Thought of you EXO-L.” The second was a screenshot of EXO’s “Smile On My Face” paused at exactly 3:07.
What makes the second image especially meaningful is how that point in the song is Suho’s line, where he sings “원한다면 나 있을게 있을게 여기 이대로 나 있을게 내가 있을게” which translates to “If you want me to, I’ll be here, I’ll stay. Right here, like this, I’ll be. I will be the one to stay,” in English.
Junmyeon’s part in smile on my face at 3:07: “if you want, i’ll just stay, i’ll just stay”

EXO-Ls all over the world have been sending their love to the eldest EXO member and writing messages of appreciation to thank him for thinking of them even now.
From going Live on Instagram to show us the scenery during his trip overseas to posting the view of the pretty sky and rainbow in Korea on his Instagram Story today, Junmyeon always thinks of us whenever he sees something beautiful and would always share it with us ㅠㅠ

What do you think of Suho’s heartfelt posts?
A previous version of this article incorrectly stated that this is the first time Suho posted on his Instagram since enlistment.
