With E’Dawn being put on temporary hiatus after his dating “scandal” with HyunA, fans feared the worst about his future, assuming Cube Entertainment was trying to phase him out. Today, at least E’Dawn has allowed to say something of his own, addressing the group’s fan cafe in a post.
“Hello everyone, this is E’Dawn. I’m sorry that this message is so sudden, so late in coming, and in writing instead of in person.
I had been excited to meet the fans at the fan club inauguration ceremony in August, and all of the members were excited and grateful for the opportunity. I wanted to address you all directly, but I was not able to attend.
As a person who has said that I wanted to perform with confidence and show my sincerity, I’m sorry for disappearing all of a sudden and disappointing and confusing our fans. I’m so sorry that this is late and I don’t know if my words will reach you, but I wanted to share a little of what I’ve been thinking for the fans who would otherwise wait endlessly for news.
Before this incident took place, I talked often with my members about whether my choices were right or wrong. Before any decision was made, I was afraid and unsure of myself. But since this was a choice I made for myself, I thought that it would be better to be honest rather than continue living a huge lie. That’s why I made up my mind to face everyone honestly.
I wanted to keep my promise to the fans to meet them and give an honest performance, but I was unable to keep that promise during this last promotion. However, I’m glad that I was able to promote with my members and perform the music that we worked hard on. I will not be able to join them directly this time but I will always cheer on the fans and the members with the new album, which everyone worked hard on.
One month was a long time for me. I worried that a lot of people would hate me at first, or feel hurt. I thought about a lot of different things during that time. I’m sad that this is the only way I can express my sincerity. I don’t know how we will be able to meet again, but stay healthy and I hope that only good things will happen to you all in future. I will be fine.
I’m sorry. Thank you. I miss you. I will let you know of anything new if there is an opportunity.”
While I’m sure people are happy to actually get to hear from him personally, I’m not sure the uncertainty about when he’ll be able to see fans again is all that reassuring. Again, I’m aware of the reasons the fans are giving for being upset at this, I just think they are fucking silly. Though in the end, it’s about money, and I suppose Cube feels like they are satiating fans by appearing to punish the couple for insubordination or whatever and that needs to be as far as it goes.
Other than that, he spoke a lot about honesty. While that is typically used as an excuse, since it seems like they went to the press with it themselves, that seems sincere at least. Hope things work out in the end.
