Cube Entertainment have announced that HyunA and PENTAGON's E'Dawn have been kicked out of the agency.
The two idols have withdrawn from the public since announcing they had been in a relationship for over two years.
Cube Entertainment issued a statement saying:
"This is Cube Entertainment.
Cube Entertainment has officially decided to remove our artists HyunA and E'Dawn from the label.
When managing our artists, the company has worked with faith and trust in each other as the main priority.
After numerous discussions, it is with great pain that we have come to the conclusion that it will prove difficult for us to rebuild the broken loyalty and trust between these two artists, HyunA and E'Dawn; so their removal has been decided.
We sincerely thank fans who have been with the two artists all this time.
The two idols have been met with harsh criticism from Korean fans since revealing their relationship, and E'Dawn had not been participating in PENTAGON's recent promotions.
