As you know by now, Cube Entertainment took HyunA & 4Minute and dropped the 4Minute part. Well, that was immediately followed by all 4Minute members unfollowing HyunA while they still followed each other.
A netizen noted that Sohyun’s Instagram went from her following 69 people to 68, and indeed you cannot find HyuNA’s account in the list any longer. The same goes for members Gayoon, Jiyoon, and Jihyun. While they are all following one another, the only one they are not following is HyunA.
I didn’t post about this at the time because I figured they would get over it and so would others.
Recently, though, in a now-deleted Instagram post, Jihyun posted some vague Tao-esque bullshit about betrayal.
On June 20, she wrote, “Scribble scribble,” and then posted a picture of her “scribbles.” It goes, “I don’t even yearn for your gaze. I feel nothing. I have no tears. All the words that came out of your lips were not sincere. They were lies. I don’t know why – the time passes – tell me why – I hate the me that’s been discarded, too, I hate it.”
Some are speculating it’s directed towards Cube, which I guess makes some sense given that Jihyun saw the writing on the wall from them. However, the more likely (and more interesting) scenario given the mass unfollowing that occurred is that this was addressed to HyunA, and she’s telling everybody that HyunA lied to her and the group.
If I’m being honest, I don’t really care why exactly 4Minute disbanded. It happened.
Best-case (and most likely) scenario is that it was determined the other four members of 4Minute weren’t profitable enough to retain. Worst-case scenario is that HyunA told the group she would insist to Cube they stay together but then decided at the last minute that she didn’t want to do another four years (or whatever) of charity work.
