EXO's Xiumin has written a sweet letter to EXO-Ls, asking that they no longer send him gifts, and also giving an update on what he's been doing recently.

Xiumin isn't the first EXO member to have announced that he won't be accepting fan gifts: Chen and D.O. made a similar decision in 2016, and Lay in 2015.

In his letter, Xiumin wrote: "I am currently working hard these days to prepare for somehting. Of course, that something is for everyone. Because nothing has been revealed, you thought that I was just resting, right? I want to say to anyone who thought that way that ‘that is absolutely not the truth!!’ hahaha.” He added, “I plan to be busier than last year in 2018!”

Speaking kindly to his fans he thanked them for being the best in the universe before saying that although he's grateful for the many gifts EXO-Ls have sent, he's actually running out of space for them!

His letter read: “Truthfully, I’m very, very sorry this is so sudden, but I’m uploading this post because there’s a message that I wish to convey to you all. The presents that everyone sends for me! I use them well while feeling very grateful and am able to live not lacking anything thanks to them.

“While I want to accept everything if it was just based on my feelings when I think about everyone’s sincerity [but] oh my… What to do… There is no space at home for me to put my feet anymore… If I were to speak straightforwardly without beating around the bush, I will— no, I want to, only accept everyone’s feelings from now on. To be honest, I think there are no greater gifts than love and concern. I am actually more greedy to receive those feelings more profoundly and continuously, rather than physical things. It’s quite selfish of me, isn’t it…? haha."

He went on to say that he'll be working his hardest as he turns 29 (in Korean years), so we can probably expect lots more EXO in the coming months!
