Dear B2uties, it’s time to talk about B2ST’s (비스트) contract with Cube Entertainment, which ended on 15th October.
On 16th October, it was reported that the idol group will be leaving their current agency to create their own label because the boys “want to try new things”.
According to multiple sources, although B2ST is very thankful for Cube’s support and help all these years, they want to set up their own label as a new challenge for themselves.
“In regards to the contract renewal, we’re still in the process of discussing. We have not received any information, therefore we are in a situation where we cannot speak on the matter,” Cube told Top Star News in a statement.
B2ST made their debut in 2009 as a 6-member idol group and they quickly became one of the most iconic boy bands in the K-Pop industry. But in April 2016, main vocalist Hyunseung departed the group due to “differing opinions”. But the group stayed strong, returning as a 5-member group a few months ago with their 3rd studio album, “Highlight”.
To date, B2ST has released 9 EPs: “Beast Is The B2ST”, “Shock Of The New Era”, “Mastermind”, “Lights Go On Again”, and “Good Luck”.
