Hyuna and E'Dawn reportedly leaving Cube Entertainment

On October 5, news outlet Ilgan Sports released a report stating that HyunA and E’Dawn will be leaving Cube Entertainment.

According to a source, HyunA is in the process of parting with the agency. HyunA is reportedly wrapping up her exclusive contract due to being unable to fix the conflict that resulted from the company notifying her about her removal without any discussion. The report claims that HyunA and Cube Entertainment are organizing cases of renewed advertisement contracts and balancing accounts.

A source from the music industry said, “HyunA was hurt after finding out from a news report about Cube removing her without any discussion. Cube’s board members have different opinions, but since it was deemed difficult to fix the conflict with HyunA, the atmosphere feels like they are concluding the contract. There isn’t a lot of time left in her contract, so they are naturally wrapping things up.”

The report further claims that HyunA has told her close acquaintances that she thinks her relationship with Cube is over now.

Previously, Cube Entertainment released an official statement about the removal of HyunA and E’Dawn from the agency on September 13. On the same day, the CEO released an official statement saying that nothing had been officially decided yet. The agency has yet to provide an update regarding HyunA’s and E’Dawn’s contracts.

yea that isn't surprising at all. cube making a statement without informing their artists was easy grounds for HyunA and EDawn being able to bounce regardless of the agency's ultimate decisions. Be free.

Well I guess RIP his career.

Obviously if you found out you were being kicked out of your company publicly, even if they take it back you don't want to stay at the company.

He may have a hard time being a rookie and all, but he is a super talented composer and songwriter so he'll find gigs. I don't know what Pentagon's music will sound like without him, though.

It's going to be hard for E'dawn either ways but Hyuna is clearly better off with another agency
The source seems a little sketchy and I'm not found of the title talking about both of them when E'dawn is barely mentioned in the article, but I want an update on them so much :(
jyushimatsu 5th-Oct-2018 09:08 am (UTC)
She’s better off somewhere else.

I'm sure E'Dawn will be fine as a songwriter, he's really talented. I hope he gets signed somewhere he can write a lot for groups. (though it would also be nice to continue to see him as a performer). Hyuna will obviously be fine elsewhere as well.

Cube didn't deserve either of them after the way they handled a somewhat very inoffensive situation. That was like crazy and the korean fandom honestly didn't look good this times. Usually I get it but for that particular case they were just batshit crazy imo.
yxerin 5th-Oct-2018 12:59 pm (UTC)
i can see why hyuna might bounce based on this, but there's nothing in regards to e'dawns departure in the article
ohbubbajoan 5th-Oct-2018 01:19 pm (UTC)
Not surprised. This is def better for Hyuna, I'm looking forward to see where she's gonna sign up now.
I'm sad for Hyojong and Pentagon. I don't think we'll see him as a performancer anymore but I really hope he keeps his songwriting/production.
They deserve the best and Cube can choke

She can do better company wise she's still very popular cube fucked up here. Shame he couldn't stay with his group he's so young and hasn't reached his peak with his group yet :/

So what is going to happen with E’Dawn?

This is more about Hyuna. Which, good for her!

so now I'll have to wait until Hui's contract ends for triple H to rise from the ashes :(
dropthecrates 5th-Oct-2018 11:56 pm (UTC)
i still can't believe how messily cube handled this, wtf
poor e-dawn and poor pentagon :( poor hyuna too but she's v. experienced and will be fine

I'm still shocked at how Cube handled this entire scandal.
They made it worse than it should be. It could have been just another dating scandal, from any random ENT company.

Is this Cube's first dating scandal....in a very very long time?
