On October 15, Korean media outlet Hyundae News released a letter written by HyunA, and it sheds some light on the alleged circumstances surrounding her exit from Cube Entertainment. The letter started, "As you know well, my only sin is working my body to the bone for Cube Entertainment until now."
The former 4minute member also listed three points, including the fact that she took Cube Entertainment founder Hong Seung Sung's side when she left JYP Entertainment, her second was that she sided with Hong Seung Sung when there was conflict between Mr. Hong and label chairman Park Choong Min, and her third point was that she did her best for her label.
HyunA continued, "I don't know how enormous of a sin I've committed, but everything in my schedule has been canceled since September," referring to when she went public with her relationship with Pentagon's E'Dawn. She further stated, "They're making excuses and delaying things. My blood is drying up every day. I've been having a hard time waiting for these past two months. I've been kicked out of Cube Entertainment without my consent, and my image has fallen. If you can think back on the beautiful times, I hope that it can end beautifully too."
What are you thoughts on HyunA's letter? Her full letter is as follows:
"To: CEO Shin Dae Nam
As you probably know, the only thing I've ever done was do my very best for the Cube Entertainment that exists today.
Firstly, when I was parting ways with JYP, I was on Chairman Hong's side. Secondly, when there was a conflict between Chairman Hong and President Park Choong Min, I turned down President Park even when he tried to convince me and stood on the side of Chairman Hong. Thirdly, after Cube went public, the only thing I've done is do my best to help create the Cube that it has become today.
I don't know how great of a crime I've committed, but since the beginning of September, all of my schedules have been canceled. Then on September 13, I read the news of my removal. Even though I could've been told in person. I accepted everything and received notice of the early cancellation of my contract after a final discussion at the chairman's home in Mokdong on September 16. I've been told that a general meeting of stockholders will be held and that I would be told the results of the meeting, but I have not heard anything back so far. Things are being delayed with the excuse of above and below when we're all in the same building.
Everyday is torture for me. For these past two months, it has been too difficult for me to wait. I ask that you give a response by the 15th. Then, I would like for the contract to be canceled cleanly and gentlemanly. If I receive no response by then, I will go about it on my own through a press conference on the basis of the facts that have occurred thus far. I ask once again. I've only done my very best, deteriorating my health in order to sacrifice for the Cube that exists today. Despite my feelings, my image has hit rock bottom and my reputation has been tarnished because of my removal from Cube.
If you remember our beautiful memories, I ask that you resolve this issue beautifully and amicably. May Cube experience continuous and endless growth. Thank you.
