Confirming the move, an official from ODE Entertainment stated,
“Following the expiration of their contracts with SM Entertainment, Donghae and Eunhyuk have founded ODE Entertainment and taken on the role of co-CEOs.”
Focus on D&E Duo and Future Prospects
According to sources close to Donghae and Eunhyuk, their partnership goes beyond just business. They’ve been close friends for a long time and intend to continue both their individual pursuits and their D&E duo activities under the banner of their newly established company. Donghae adn Eunhyuk are even considering recruiting new artists in the future.
