K-pop stars could be fired for falling in love

The careers of two of South Korea’s pop idols are hanging in the balance after they admitted publicly to being in love and dating.

South Korean solo star HyunA, 26, and her boyfriend E’Dawn, 24, from K-pop boyband Pentagon were accused by their record label Cube Entertainment of “broken loyalty and trust” one month after they broke their silence on their relationship to fans.

"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; as a result, we have made the decision to remove them from our label," Cube said in a statement on Thursday, without explicitly referencing their relationship.

The announcement lit up social media, with fans rallying to support the young couple and lashing out over the decision.

The company’s stock immediately plummeted by 9.43%, reported the AllKpop website. A few hours later, Cube backtracked, saying that the fate of the artists was still under discussion and would be handled at a board meeting next week.
