Some fans of Pentagon
may be asking for the removal of E'Dawn
On August 5, screencaps from Pentagon's official fan cafe spread online among different groups of fans. Written in Korean, scrolls of messages with the same title '[Feedback Request] We demand feedback from Cube Entertainment and Kim Hyo Jong (E'Dawn)' filled the cafe's forum, each uploaded by a different fan.
According to the translations based on the post, these members of 'Universe' (Pentagon's fan club) are requesting compensation for the "mental
" and "financial damage
" that HyunA
and E'Dawn have caused. Since the two had been dating for the past 2 years, these fans are suggesting that Universe must equally be indemnified for being misled for that long period of time.
Other points from the request consider the details leading up to Universe's first opening ceremony
, scheduled to take place mid-August. They wrote, "Will you issue a cancellation notice on the morning of the same day, like the Triple H fan signing?
" Some fans are even asking for reimbursement with plans to cancel their ticketing.
Finally, fans on the official cafe asked for the removal of E'Dawn from Pentagon, for "deceiving team and members". Regarding this statement, netizens explained that they would like to know whether E'Dawn "received consent from all the other members of Pentagon", which might change some perspectives.
As with many cases, it appeared that a split among different fan groups has once again transpired. While some expressed that this measure had "gone too far", others tried to properly express their stance through writing. One fan (assumed to be a K-netizen) wrote to international fans on a Twitter post describing each point; mainly, their issue was a matter of E'Dawn's lack of willingness to confront and communicate with fans, while "HyunA did on her IG".
What do you think of this issue?
