B.A.P’s Bang Yong Guk Sets Up One-Man Agency + Preparing For Comeback
B.A.P’s Bang Yong Guk has established his own agency!
On September 15, Bang Yong Guk announced via social media that he has set up a one-man agency called CONSENT.
Bang Yong Guk is a singer-songwriter who began his music career in the underground hip hop scene. He made his solo debut in 2011 with “I Remember” and joined the group B.A.P as a leader, main rapper, and producer.
In 2019, Bang Yong Guk released his first full-length solo album, titled “BANGYONGGUK,” and toured five countries in Europe. He also self-produced his own documentary film, “Breath” (literal title), which was chosen to be screened at the Open Cinema by the DMZ International Documentary Film Festival.
Bang Yong Guk also worked as a producer on the debut album for the new boy group JUST B in June. After his discharge from the military in May, he received many offers from agencies, but chose to set up his own label. He is currently gearing up for a solo comeback in the later half of 2021 and various domestic and international promotions. He also signed an exclusive distribution contract with ADA, a music distributor that is affiliated with Warner Music Group.
A representative from CONSENT said, “Please look forward to Bang Yong Guk’s new album and promotions as a multi-talented artist who has received much love for his stand-out musical and vocal color. He intends to broaden his promotions into modeling and acting, not just in music, so we ask for everyone’s love and support.”
