On September 18, a press conference was held for MBC’s new variety program “Real Men 300” at MBC Golden Mouth Hall in Seoul. Hongseok is a cast member of the military reality show’s latest season, in which the cast members will undergo various tests and evaluations in order to become part of the elite “300 warriors” of the army.
During the event, when asked about his group PENTAGON, Hongseok replied, “Our team is currently promoting with ‘Naughty Boy.'”
He continued, “Currently, I’m diligently focused on our activities, and because the person in question has yet to give an official statement or share his opinions on the matter you’re curious about, I’m cautious because I don’t think I can speak rashly of it.”
On September 13, Cube Entertainment had released an official statement stating that HyunA and E’Dawn would no longer be managed by the agency, but later backtracked to report their removal was still being discussed.
