On the afternoon of the 13th, Cube Entertainment announced the signing of a new contract with Jang Hyun Seung. Cube Entertainment said, “We recently finished signing a new contract with Jang Hyun Seung, and we will give as much help and support to him in the future not losing any opportunity.”
This is a different path from the organized group of six called BEAST which Jang Hyun Seung was in. Last April, Jang Hyun Seung left the Boy Group to continue being a solo artist. BEAST, who became a five-member group after the withdrawal of Jang Hyun Seung, is reported to be on their own route after the group’s exclusive contract with Cube Entertainment expired last October. Cube Entertainment is still discussing “renewing contracts” with them but BEAST seems to be in the direction of establishing a proprietary contact now under some investment company in China.
The same is true with 4Minute. Two months after Jang Hyun Seung left BEAST, Cube Entertainment’s girl group, 4Minute, has officially disbanded after seven years. After dismantling, each member found a new nest in their new agency, but HyunA remained. Among the members of the 4Minute, HyunA signed a new contract with Cube.
After dismantling, HyunA from 4Minute released a solo album and began her solo career. Heo Ga Yoon, Jeon Ji Yoon, Nam Ji Hyun, and Kwon Seo Hyun also left Cube Entertainment to announce their new beginnings. As a result, Cube Entertainment’s BEAST has Jang Hyun Seung as a remaining member, and as for 4Minute, HyunA remains.
There is also some interests and talks about whether Jang Hyun Seung and HyunA will remain active as Trouble Maker of their groups respectively. At the time of the withdrawal of Jang Hyun Seung from BEAST, Cube Entertainment stated, “It is not yet decided whether or not they will continue to act as Trouble Maker.”
It is exciting how Jang Hyun Seung and HyunA who have entered into full-scale solo stand will show a second act as partners in Cube Entertainment
