Can't set up 1 node pxc on kubernetes cluster

I’m a newbie of percona xtradb cluster. When i set up the size of pxc to 1 to deploy mysql server to kubernetes cluster the result is 3 pxc node. This is my code:

kind: PerconaXtraDBCluster
name: cluster1
crVersion: 1.13.0
size: 1
image: perconalab/percona-xtradb-cluster:8.0.32-24.2
memory: 500M
cpu: 300m
storage: 10G

and this is my result:
cluster1-pxc-0 2/2 Running 0 2d16h
cluster1-pxc-1 2/2 Running 1 (2d16h ago) 2d16h
cluster1-pxc-2 2/2 Running 0 2d16h
Can anyone explain this to me?

Hello @Tu_n_Nguy_n_Thuc
Is there any specific reason for using a 1 node PXC cluster?

The size of the Percona XtraDB cluster must be 3 or 5 for High Availability. other values are allowed if the spec.allowUnsafeConfigurations key is set to true
Ref: Custom Resource options - Percona Operator for MySQL based on Percona XtraDB Cluster


  allowUnsafeConfigurations: true

    size: 1
    image: percona/percona-xtradb-cluster:8.0.32-24.2
kubectl apply -f deploy/cr.yaml -n pxc

$ kubectl get pods -n pxc

If you are looking for single primary setup , you might check Percona Operator for MySQL
Note: It is a tech preview release and it is not recommended for production environments . As of today, we recommend using Percona Operator for MySQL based on Percona XtraDB Cluster, which is production-ready and contains everything you need to quickly and consistently deploy and scale MySQL clusters in a Kubernetes-based environment, on-premises or in the cloud.

Thank you for your answer, I have read the document about percona XtraDB cluster and it say that I can create 1 node PXC cluster so I just want to test this case.
