A thrilling saga between HyunA, E’Dawn, and Cube Entertainment has taken over K-pop news on September 13.

After news of HyunA and E’Dawn being pulled out of their scheduled activities including Pentagon’s comeback for E’Dawn, speculations of the two K-pop acts being “punished” by Cube Entertainment have made rounds on social media and news report.

However, September 13 saw light being shed (somehow) on the status of HyunA and E’Dawn in the company after revealing their relationship last month.

Media outlets have reported that Cube Entertainment has dismissed the two artists. In a statement released on Thursday morning, the company said the decision to kick out HyunA and E’Dawn came as the “trust was broken and cannot be saved”.

The news surprised many as they did not think the company would go that far to dismiss their artists, especially since HyunA has been with the company for more than a decade, and is considered the top act of the agency.

On the other hand, E’Dawn has been instrumental in Pentagon’s music as a composer of the group. He was also the first member to join the group.

People have taken to Twitter to express their dismay over the news, using the hashtag #CubeIsCancelledParty. Under the hashtag, Twitter users recognized the contribution of HyunA in helping build Cube Entertainment and E’Dawn’s importance in Pentagon.

Moreover, netizens called out the company for dismissing their artists for being in a relationship, while others have expressed their wish for both to build their own agency.

Here are some of the tweets under the #CubeIsCancelledParty:

As of press time, Cube Entertainment’s stance on the issue remains vague as various new reports have spread that the decision is not yet final. It was also reported that HyunA and E’Dawn found out their dismissal via news articles. Moreover, the company has experienced a plummet on its stock prices following the news.

Aside from the issue between the artists and the company, many also took this opportunity to look into the bigger picture of the entertainment industry, especially regarding idols, who are seemingly confined by the image they were made to portray and the expectations of fans on their actions.
