Kim Tae Woo's agency Soul Shop Entertainment has released an official statement concerning HyunA and Hyunsik's homage to g.o.d in her song "From When and Until When" from her 'A Talk' album, and Cube Entertainment President Hong Seung Sung has officially apologized for the matter.

As mentioned previously, issues arose when netizens recognized that the lyrics of HyunA's song coincided with g.o.d's past hit "The Reason Why Opposites Attract", and Hyunsik explained that the two wished to make an homage to their sunbaes. Kim Tae Woo has now come out with an official statement through his label with comments that reflect JYP Entertainment's attitude concerning the news

Kim Tae Woo stated through Soul Shop Entertainment on July 31, "Though we're thankful that HyunA and Hyunsik made an homage as a sign of respect, it's very regrettable that we were not consulted and there was no consent beforehand as well as that we found out after the fact. Although it's regretful that it would have been better had they consulted us ahead of time, we will look at the incident in a positive light as it was meant to honor and congratulate g.o.d's comeback. We hope that there will be prior consultation in the future."

Cube Entertainment head Hong Seung Sung has also made an official apology through the agency's Twitter. He wrote, "We apologize we weren't able to inform the involved parties about the song that the two artists (4minute's HyunA and BTOB's Hyunsik) wrote and composed to make an homage to producer J.Y. Park and their sunbaes g.o.d. We acknowledge that we were careless on our part for not carefully overseeing the technical details with the intentions of our artists."

As the composer and co-writer of the song, BTOB's Hyunsik made an apology through Twitter as well, "To producer J.Y. Park and my sunbaes g.o.d, my intentions were to create an homage to sunbaes I looked up to and a song I've really liked, but I sincerely apologize for not consulting you beforehand and causing worry. In the future, I'll do my best to become a hoobae and fan who you can be proud of. Finally, I sincerely apologize to everyone who was hurt by my thoughtless actions."
