    I hope the other girls sign with a different agency like Minzy and find their own path. It's sad seeing the golden age of KPOP nearing it's end.

    The article states that iHQ was the reason behind the disbandment of 4MINUTE. The reporter, states, “The answer to the question of why 4MINUTE disbanded lies with iHQ. In 2013, 50% CUBE Ent was bought out by iHQ at 16.5 Billion won and the final decision in all things lay with CUBE.” The article goes on to state that with the recent failures of 4MINUTE’s albums 4MINUTE was seen by iHQ as a non-profitable group and as profit took priority over music, became an “unnecessary” group to CUBE. Hyuna who was successful as a solo artist was able to resign but the rest were abandoned. The members, according to this reporter, wished to resign with the company but no one could help them. CEO Hong who discovered 4MINUTE loved 4MINUTE as his own and CUBE suffered great pain through this incident. Many entertainment personnel stated, “If this was CUBE run by CEO Hong, a different outcome would have been reached..”

    What a shocker there that Hyuna is the only one staying. Let's all be real ok!! We all know that the girls leaving was because Cube put to much damn attention on Hyuna and not them. The only attention those girls ever got was when they were promoting at 4mintue! And hell! Even then all you see and hear is Hyuna's ass!! That's just being truthful. I'm sorry to 4minutes fans, but they didn't let those other girls shine. Hyuna wasn't the only one in that group, but it sure seemed like it sometimes. So really, I don't blame them for leaving. Hell if I was them I would have left a long time ago.

    They all wanted to resign. It was iHQ that wouldn't let them. And though a lot of attention was on Hyuna, I think there was a semi-ish equal distribution of lines in songs. They can't control music shows from highlighting a single member.

    Come on now!! You and I know it wasn't just music shows that highlighted that girl! The company put Hyuna in a lot of things and gave her opportunities that could have been given to the other members. So there that is...
