Cube to act against pregnancy rumor


Hyun-seung and Hyun-A

Cube Entertainment, home to K-pop bands 4Minute and Beast, said Friday that it will take legal action against people who spread the rumor that singer Hyun-A, a member of 4Minute, is pregnant with a child by Hyun-seung, a member of Beast.

The two have been performing as the duo Trouble Maker since 2011, with their latest single, “There Is No Tomorrow,” becoming one of the biggest K-pop hits released last year.

“Looking at the rumor, which was written in the format of a news article, we came to the conclusion that the rumor was created to harm the two in a malicious way,” said Cube in a statement.

The rumor was formatted using a new smartphone app called “I’m a Reporter, Too,” which makes messages resembling news reports.

The rumor said that Kim Hyun-A and Jang Hyun-seung had visited an obstetrics and gynecology clinic recently and included a fake comment from Cube Entertainment that the young couple planned to keep the baby.
