On May 17, iKON's youngest member Chanwoo enlisted in the military for his mandatory service. In April, 143 Entertainment had announced that they would not be holding any official event for the fans and press on the day the members enlist for the smooth initiation of the process.

The label also explained that the members would be entering the center privately to prevent safety-related accidents and on-site confusion. Bobby was scheduled to enlist on May 21 but the date has been postponed to June 4. 

As the idol reached the center for his enlistment, he hugged his managers tightly. They all surrounded and circled him as they shared a group hug. When he was leaving, Chanwoo waved goodbye to his managers.
