Pentagon’s Hongseok has become the first member of his group to open up about the ongoing controversy and discussions between his fellow group member E’Dawn and his agency, Cube Entertainment.
On September 18, Pentagon’s Hongseok attended “Real Men 300” press conference which was held on September 18.
The press conference was held at MBC Golden Mouth Hall in Seoul and was attended by the PDs of the show along with the cast Kang Ji Hwan, Matthew Douma, Kim Jae Hwa, Lee Yoo Bi, and Shinji.
During the conference, the topic of E’Dawn came up and he was asked about his group and E’Dawn, he said,
“Our members are currently actively promoting ‘Naughty Boy.’
Right now, I am diligently focused on our activities, and since E’Dawn hasn’t given a statement yet or shared his opinions on the matter you’re curious about, I don’t think I can speak about it easily, I remain cautious.”
On September 13, Cube Entertainment announced that HyunA and E’Dawn would be leaving the agency and cited ‘broken trust’ as the reason they were kicked out, after that, they retracted their statement and said they were discussing the issue and that the couple would have a say in whether they stay or leave.
Since then, the agency and both artists have been quiet. Although HyunA’s team has teased a possible upcoming collaboration with AOMG prompting fans into thinking that she would be moving to that agency.
However, neither HyunA nor E’Dawn released any official statements yet. Fans are anxiously anticipating the decision of the label and the artists.
What do you think of the ongoing issue?
I heard that Pentagon also heard of HyunA and E’Dawn found out they were getting kicked out through the news as well just like everybody else.
They were shooting for a music show but I don’t remember what it was, I believe that was the case since yours truly Cube didn’t even bother to tell HyunA and E’Dawn they were kicked out why would they bother tell Pentagon?
He must be going through a tough time, losing a group member due to something that should have never been blown out of proportion like that is just sad.. E’Dawn wasn’t smoking pot or accused of sexual harassment or caught drunk driving, the poor guy fell in love and dated someone.
I said it before and I will say it again, I am hoping that E’Dawn stays and eventually returns to his group. I think he is stronger as part of his group and he does compose songs for them.
Despite saying that I will completely understand if he chose to leave along with HyunA, it would make so much sense because he was treated like shit by his label…
