Recently, Shinhwa’s Eric gave advice to BEAST, who is presently in a legal battle with Cube Entertainment, and member Yoon Doo Joon has expressed his gratefulness for the support.
Yoon Doo Joon uploaded a picture of Shinhwa’s 13th album on Instagram on January 4 and wrote, “Thank you Shinhwa. I respect and support you all the time! I hope [your album] succeeds this time, too.”
BEAST has just left Cube Entertainment to pursue their own agency after their contracts expired, but is having some hindrances in obtaining their group name since Cube Entertainment holds a trademark over “BEAST.”
Shinhwa also went through a similar situation with SM Entertainment and had to spend 12 long years trying to retain trademark rights over their group name. Eric Mun addressed BEAST’s situation during an interview and gave an advise saying it is important for the group to “speak with one voice.”
