Cube Entertainment artists celebrate the opening of ‘Cube Studio’

Cube Entertainment has announced that they have opened the doors to a new personal studio for their artists to mark the start of a brand new adventure together!

On April 10th, CEO Hong Seung Sung and his artists, 4minute, B2ST, G.NA, and BtoB all gathered to celebrate the opening of ‘Cube Studio’. Leaders from each respective group stood alongside their CEO to cut the tape for the grand opening. Although Cube Entertainment was established in 2008, this will be their first private studio where they will be using it as a foundation for their global marketing strategies.

Hong Seung Sung stated, “I created this place to instill a sense of bravery in our artists to help the Korean entertainment industry become one of the best. I hope that this studio will be the start of K-Pop transcending Asia and taking place all over the world.”

‘Cube Studio’ will be aiding singers and musicians to better grow and advance with their skills. The studio will include facilities dedicated to the areas of vocal, composition, performance, production, and choreography training. A special cafe for artists to be able to sit down and communicate with their fans will also be included in the studio. All profits from the cafe will be donated to charities of the company’s choice.

He continued, “Without communication, nothing can be achieved. I want this location right here to be a stepping stone in advancing the entertainment industry.”

Doojoon also stated, “I’m grateful that a lot of people came and are anticipating a lot from this. Three years ago, Kikwang came as the only trainee, and has now become a member of so many new artists today. This deeply moves me.”

Jihyun concluded, “By seeing more family members join and the company grow, I’m filled with thoughts of working even harder. Please look forward to BtoB and 4minute’s broadcast activities.”
