Hello, Don1y [official fan club name], this is D1CE’s Yong Geun. I am writing this because there is something I want to say first to our lovable Don1y. I thought a lot about how to say this… I’ve been called by the country to fulfill my military service duties on May 6. When I heard the news, the first thing I thought of was Don1y. To all the fans who have always shown me their love and affection despite the fact that I was lacking. Thank you so much for helping me make happy memories that I will not forget for a long time. It was a very meaningful time for me. I will fulfill my military duties and return healthy. I hope that our fans will always stay healthy and happy as well. I’ll stay strong with the hope of our reunion in my heart. Finally, I love you, thank you.
