Following Song Kyung-il, who joined the military in December 2018, the other four members of HISTORY have been scheduled to join the military sequentially. Due to the long absence of the team, individual activities are essential. In the meantime, the group has been discussing the current situation comprehensively and the direction of HISTORY’s activities with the members for a long time. In the end, the members and the company ended their group activities after discussion and decided to carry out individual activities later.
