On the 24th of August, Blossom Entertainment announced that the actor would be enlisting on the 31st at an undisclosed time and location. Military send offs are usually open to public, so it is common for fans to send their idols off. However, it seems that this decision was made in light of the current surge in coronavirus cases in South Korea.

Due to the current pandemic, where everyone should carry out social distancing for the sake of public health, we request that fans do not visit the location.
