Cube Entertainment has decided to halt online music service of HyunA’s song “From Where and Until When” from her recently released mini album, “A Talk.” This is in light of the controversy concerning song composer and writer BTOB Hyunsik copying lyrics from g.o.d’s song “The Reason Why Opposites Attract.” The BTOB member explained that he was simply congratulating g.o.d on their comeback, and making a tribute to a song that he had always liked. However, JYP Entertainment, home to the original song writer Park Jin Young, and Soul Shop Entertainment, g.o.d member Kim Tae Woo‘s agency, subsequently expressed their disappointment that they were not consulted beforehand or asked for permission.
On August 1, Cube Entertainment said, “We sincerely apologize for the situation with the ‘From Where and Until When’ homage from HyunA’s third mini album. Starting at 11am this morning, the song will be unavailable online.” They continued, “Even in HyunA’s later records, this song will not be included. Again, we sincerely apologize.”
