AKP STAFF

Cube Entertainment's executive producer Hong Seong Sung has stepped down after claiming the label's majority stakeholders are treating idols 'horrendously.'

As previously reported
, executive producer Hong Seong Sung spoke out on Twitter, alleging the new stakeholders are "engaging in horrendous behaviors that even hugs wouldn't do, causing infighting within the company." On March 31, he announced he'll be stepping down with the following message:

"For all the fans who love Cube, 

I wanted to say goodbye in this small place where we communicated with each other.

It didn't take me so long to realize those people who I thought were good partners actually didn't want me in this company.

I didn't want my efforts for Cube to turn to waste, and I was very happy working for the company even during my long stay on the hospital bed.

I can't find the words to describe my disappointment and emptiness.

It's heartbreaking that strong trusts and bonds can change so easily, but it's up to the remaining people to create a bright future for Cube.

I'm leaving Cube, the company I gambled my entire life on.

But I am going to meet you again soon.

Please continue your love and support for Cube artists, and I hope you all to be happy."

He probably got an ultimatum: either you will leave on your own terms and say goodbye to fans or we will kick you out and then sue you because of words that you wrote.

Let's just hope he won't end career in this business because he is only 56 years old, maybe he will start his own label or some smaller company will hire him to use his connections in industry.

i feel so sorry for him and cube artists :( he may have already been planning to step down which is why he exposed the infighting and mismanagement on twitter or maybe they forced him to step down... whatever it is, i wish him the best in life
