But let's be real. Cube has pretty much now destroyed pentagon. The only way they will survive is through hui.


But i dunno if the public will ever welcome them back. They were only just starting to get recognised

What a shame... E'Dawn basically WAS pentagon... he had so much character, his voice was so unique and he gave the group so much color. Shine was actually my favorite song of this year and I was hoping for so much more from this group.

... I suppose that E'DAWN and HYUNA can now form a 'newer version' TROUBLE MAKER Duo Group if they choose. NOT sure if any AGENCY would want to support that though (an E'DAWN and HYUNA Duo). I would guess that an AGENCY *would* want to take on HYUNA as a SOLO Act though. I guess E'DAWN could be 'along for the ride' with HYUNA too. And MAYBE E'DAWN as a SOLO Talent is appealing to an AGENCY ; no idea on that here.
... I do NOT understand the 'logic' of CUBE Agency in having HYUNA leave them over this DATING situation. BUT, I do give 'credit' to CUBE Agency that they are letting HYUNA and E'DAWN 'walk' with little problem. For example, JESSICA JUNG (SNSD) was kept 'hanging and inactive' but under *contract* with SMe Agency. LONG after she had been removed as an SNSD member by them. I thought that (JESSICA = 'Limbo') was POOR behavior by SMe Agency ; NOT illegal though.
... (Off topic) ... Just recently, having LESS problem with COMMENTS posting properly. IF you did any 'tweaking' to fix that, it worked here ; thanks! ... :)

Personally I dont think so, when the members sang shine without edawn, you really heard the difference and you could understand what he brought to the group. This is such a stupid move on Cube's part and it's all because they didnt know how to handle the fan reaction.

I thought its the other way around. The fans wanted him to go so now he is off, the fans have nothing to complain about anymore so its good for Pentagon. As for E'DAWN, can he be an idol anymore? I doubt so, I have yet to see an idol debut when he is publicly attached.

It's no misfortune for E'Dawn if he's a true artist. If he composes his own music,... As a rapper, I assume he writes his own bars. We see he can dance. IF..., he'll make a way. And if he's any good, he'll gain fans for his product and not his fake image. The best part about not being an idol anymore is he can live honestly and openly.

HyoJong is lucky to be handsome, talented and dating a very successful idol. He will surely land himself a new and exciting prospect with no trouble. It was best for him to exit a contract with Cube that clearly lack the ability to properly handle press issues and their idols best interests. He is better off without them


Besides, Pentagon is a large boy group, with many members that can certainly hold their own. They will surely survive one or two member exists. EXO has!

Well, seeing the comments I guess I wasn't the only one that got into Pentagon because of E'dawn. Don't take me wrong, Hui is a great singer and a great producer, and the other guys are really likable as well, especially Yuto and Shinwon as far as I'm concerned, but it was E'dawn that gave them that "je ne sais quoi" that made them stand out. I'll keep following them personally, Naughty boy was still a strong song, but I sure will miss E'dawn...

Not true at all. Other companies have handled such situations much better. However much I feel that Hyuna & E'Dawn should not have admitted to dating after Cube denied it. they certainly didn't deserve getting booted out of the company. Cube could have followed YG & other companies' examples to deal with this, but they didn't because they are inept.

Then doesn't that mean there is something fundamentally wrong with the way the k-pop industry works? The fact that pleasing fans (with a toxic mindset, if I may call it that) is more important than the celebration of love between two people? Should it just be like that 'till the end of time? I get that this is all about not losing face but it really makes me wonder where Cube's hearts are at. I'd like to see companies step up and say, hey, these people are in love and we have decided to support that because it doesn't change anything about their artistic abilities.

Their delusional fans weren't into them for their talent. If it was only about their talent, then there wouldn't be any need to sell all that cheap silly merchandise: Posters, cards and stickers. Who buys stickers?? LOL Their recordings and live performances would be enough. Oh, and who buys multiple copies of the same CD? You only need one. Those greedy capitalists love those silly kids.

Once you go solo, things are not so easy.

Groups > solo.


Rarely it happens for a solo act to be successful. Not anyone is Jay Park.

Glad that useless Edawn finally left Pentagon. This is all Hui’s fault. He knew about the relationship the whole entire time and chose to do nothing to help remedy the situation. Hui is a poor worthless leader. He knows nothing about being a strong leader for his team mates and sacrificed their work and band for the sake of his pride and ego. He is a selfish brat that does not deserve leadership. Edawn and HyunA can find new jobs but poor the rest of the pathetic teammates who doesn’t know how else to handle Cube Entertainments business-minded decision. If I was the CEO not only would I have ended contract with Edawn and HyunA. More importantly, I would fire Hui as well and replace him with a more competent, intelligent, leader. Hui is a loser, he is the reason why Pentagon sucks and should disband altogether. They are all dishonorable, beginning with Edawns lack of judgment, Hyunas selfishness to only think of her romantic relationship and Hui for playing the middle fence. Pentagon should just disband and save the remaining egg face left in their contract.
