Veteran idol Eric commented on B2ST's situation during a recent interview.  B2ST left Cube Entertainment to form their own label, leading to the loss of rights to their past songs and even group name.

Eric first said, "When the company and group stands opposite in viewpoints, the most important thing is that the members are of the same opinion.  They must speak in one voice. The basics are important."


Shinhwa had undergone legal steps to preserve their right to the trademark name 'Shinhwa' since 2012.  During the legal battle, in 2013, Shinhwa released an album using only a logo rather than the name.  Then, in 2015, they finally got their name back. 


He said, "I myself do not know what is the answer to the problem that B2ST is going through.  Fundamentally, the members are joined together and of the same mind, so no matter the method, there will be a breakthrough.  I wish that the result would make everyone happy."

Cube must have given them some sort of permission they can be sued if they don't follow the rules.

Well, B2ST already have the fundamental basic. They are on the same page to get out together from the company. The rest can be re-started all over again. Sing new songs, creates new image, etc. As long as the members are united, they can do anything. Especially when they have loyal fanbase ^__^ And I guess CUBE is not strong enough for a company to block the path in the entertainment world for them, so yeah.

No one who leaves SM is. (I will not cite EXO M members as an example since they are of a different case. ) Check out Jessica. She can't even go on music shows.

Most idols wants to be the next Shinhwa. But right now the only idol I hope to be the next Shinhwa is Beast. Although the journey that Shinhwa had is not easy, I just hope Beast could really follow their steps.
