The enlistment date has not come out yet, so we are in wait. It's turned out that Song Kyung Il will fulfill his military service as a police on duty, and he will enlist as soon as the date is set.
"We are internally in talks over promotional plants for HISTORY afterwards in the absence of Song Kyung Il. As much as one member is temporarily on leave, we are seeking many different measures for the group to meet with their fans."
