We haven’t heard from BEAST since reports of them leaving Cube Entertainment surfaced, and it has left fans wondering about the future of the boy group.
But a recent news article seems to suggest that the 7-year-old idol group will be joining forces with a former JYP Pictures producer to start up an agency and to begin their independent promotions.
South Korean media outlet My Daily reported that the 5-member group hopes to expand their horizons by not only focusing on music, but also acting in dramas, films, and also making appearances on variety shows, via the new agency.
Cube Entertainment has also responded to the reports, explaining that discussions are still ongoing. They also released a simple statement, saying, “Nothing has been fixed. We need to confirm this.” However, a source from JYP Entertainment released a statement which seemingly solidified the rumour.
The source expressed:
“The recent report on BEAST and the former JYP Pictures producer is not something that we can go into detail about. It seems like the reported producer resigned from JYP Pictures. Within the company, the identity of the mentioned producer is unknown.”
On 15 October, BEAST shocked fans when they announced that they were parting ways with their company of 7 years. The boy group reportedly left as they wanted “to try new things” and to “challenge themselves”. Nevertheless, they assured fans that they have no intention to disband in the foreseeable future.
