Experts give mixed reactions on E'Dawn's potential as a solo artist

Pentagon, E
E'Dawn is now officially a free agent. The idol is no longer an artist under Cube Entertainmentor a member of Pentagon. Without the agency or the group, many assume E'Dawn will be starting fresh as a solo artist in the future. But would solo E'Dawn see any success? Experts shared theiropinions on his potential as a solo artist.


In an interview with Sports Seoul, one expert in the K-pop industry spoke positivelyon E'Dawn's future. The expert stated, "E'Dawn was the main rapper of Pentagon. His rap skills are not bad for an idol and his performance skills in Pentagon was at the top. His songwriting skills are also not bad. He still has a lot to show."

Another expert stated, "I think he'll need some time to promote as a solo artist or in another group. He also needs an opportunity to gather his separatedfandom. It won't be easy for him to fly as an artist if he isn't given a restarting turning point or a chance such as an audition program, variety show, etc. It's also important for him to find an agency or a supporter that can aid him."

There are some who saw darkness in E'Dawn's future. A third expert stated, "First of all, it won't be easy for him to find an agency to work with. There are some in the public that supports him,but from an agency's point of view, he committed a detrimentalact for his former label. It won't be easy to decide to work with him."

The expert also said, "With his public relationship with HyunA, E'Dawn lost his fans but gained the public. His recently launched Instagram account has already exceeded 616K followers due to HyunA's active sharing. However, they are not loyal fans of E'Dawn. As of now, his fandom seems to be more in Japan and overseas. It won't be easy for him to immediately plan something domestically."

He'll be fine - just like Hyuna. They're both very talented, I hope they find a good new entertainment company that supports them.

Hyuna is not a nobody, she must've made a lot of friends and connections who'll be willing to help them out. And even if it doesn't go too well, he's a good composer and he still has supportive (sane) fans who don't have any delusional fantasies about getting into his pants.
