The Internet is enraged at the news that HyunA and her boyfriend E’Dawn have reportedly been kicked out of their agency, Cube Entertainment. The controversy stems from the newly publicized relationship between the former 4Minute star and the ex-Pentagon rapper, who recently admitted that they’ve been dating for two years. Back in August, HyunA took to her Instagram account to address the relationship rumors, stating that she “just really wanted to be honest” with her fans. Both HyunA and E’Dawn are members of the dance-pop group Triple H, which was officially formed in 2017.

For those who might not be familiar with K-pop, most artists (or better known as idols) that fall under this category are not permitted to be in any romantic relationships after signing with their labels.

In an earlier statement released on September 13, Thursday, Cube Entertainment writes that it has decided to remove the two artists from the company with an explanation that “the restoration of trust between the two artists could not be recovered.” Later on the same day, however, the label issued another statement with a senior executive saying that the dismissal of the two artists “is not a confirmed issue but a discussion.”

International fans are applauding HyunA and E’Dawn for challenging the unspoken rules of being a K-pop artist, with many expressing that no one should be fired because of their love life. Some are even anticipating the duo to join Big Hit Entertainment, the agency that manages the K-pop super group BTS.

According to The New York Times, the stock price of Cube saw a 6.57 percent drop following the reports that the artists have been laid off.
