On November 6th, through an official statement, Cube Entertainment confirmed the boy group BTOB would leave the agency. The announcement explained that “careful discussions were held with the members over a long period of time, and as a result, we decided not to renew the contract by mutual agreement“.
Thus, BTOB’s Seo Eunkwang, Lee Minhyuk, Lee Changseop, Lim Hyunsik, Peniel, and Yook Sungjae end their decade-long relationship with Cube Entertainment, a rather long run since their debut as a K-Pop group on March 21st, 2012.

The relationship between the successful company and BTOB idols seems to have ended on good terms, as the announcement mentioned: “We will sincerely support the new growth and bright future of BTOB members who have unlimited potential. Please send unchanging love to the group who will start another journey“.
