  • Your welcome ^~^

  • tiffabaybay

    Tbh, about 90% of the time it’s the entertainment’s “idea” of disbanding. I believe at one point CUBE only wanted Hyuna because they thought she’d be the “money maker” and was the “most” popular in the group. Don’t have evidence but its just gossip between entertainments.
