B.A.P's leader and solo artist Bang Yongguk has announced his military enlistment date.

The idol will begin his military service next week on Thursday 1 August. He'll also be releasing a song the day before his enlistment as a thank you gift to fans. The new single, titled "Orange Drive", will be released on Wednesday 31 July at 6PM KST. Yongguk shared the song's album cover art on his Instagram earlier today.

Yongguk has been a solo artist since August 2018, when he chose not to renew his contract with B.A.P's agency, TS Entertainment. He released his first self-titled solo album in March 2019.
