Cube Entertainment have confirmed that PENTAGON's E'Dawn will not be attending any of the group's upcoming Japanese promotions, including a fan meeting scheduled for August 18.

In a message posted on Twitter, Cube Entertainment stated that E'Dawn won't be part of the Japanese schedules due to 'internal circumstances'.

The idol has been facing backlash for his two-year relationship with HyunA, which was revealed by the couple and their agency last week.

Since the relationship confirmation, Korean fans have been demanding E'Dawn be removed from the idol group with messages left on PENTAGON's official fan cafe. So far this has resulted in Triple H's promotions being cancelled and E'Dawn not participating in the upcoming Korean fan meet.

Japanese fans seem unimpressed by E'Dawn's exclusion from the upcoming events in Japan, with many asking Cube for refunds and saying PENTAGON is 10 members and nothing less.

Cube Entertainment and E'Dawn are yet to comment.
