B.A.P’s Bang Yong Guk Not Joining Album Promotions Due To Health Issues
by: R. Jun Soompi B.A.P leader Bang Yong Guk will not be joining the group for the upcoming comeback activities due to health issues.
The decision for Bang Yong Guk to sit out was made after discussions with the B.A.P members, and Bang Yong Guk will be focusing on treatment while the remaining members do their best to fill in for their leader.
Here is the full statement from TS Entertainment:
“Hello, this is TS Entertainment.
“First, we want to thank everyone for their support prior to the release of B.A.P’s second studio album, which will be released on November 7.
“While we hate to impart bad news, leader Bang Yong Guk recently visited the hospital due to health problems and was diagnosed with panic disorder.
“As a result, Bang Yong Guk and the members decided that the group would continue with promotions with just five members, as the first priority is Bang Yong Guk’s recovery. While B.A.P is promoting, Bang Yong Guk will be focusing on receiving professional treatment and getting better.
“As this new album is a product of a lot of hard work, and as much as the fans and B.A.P members have waited for this, the five members will do their best to fill in for Bang Yong Guk.

by: Tamar Herman Billboard For the second year in a row, K-pop boy band B.A.P are heading to the U.S. They’ll tour six cities on their 2017 World Tour 'Party Baby- U.S. Boom' in April.
B.A.P, a hip-hop-oriented Korean act with a flair for dramatic music and performances, will begin the concert series in Atlanta on April 6 then end on April 16 in Los Angeles. The Party Baby tour comes a year after the group’s Live On Earth 2016 World Tour, which saw them visit multiple cities in the U.S. last April.
One of the most frequently visiting K-pop acts, The Party Baby tour is the fourth that B.A.P brings to the US. Along with the aforementioned concert series, B.A.P previously toured the States in 2013 and 2014.
The tour’s name references the band’s fandom -- known as both BABY and BABYz -- and the festive energy that B.A.P will bring to the concert stops. According to a statement from concert organizer Powerhouse, the six shows will feature opening sessions from "renowned DJs that will lead to a party-esque atmosphere."
Since arriving on the K-pop scene with a powerful sound in 2012, B.A.P has released three studio albums and multiple EPs. Their latest album, Noir, came out in November and topped the Billboard World Album chart upon its release.
Tickets go on sale Feb. 13.
