PENTAGON is an eclectic and freewheeling Seoul-based K-pop boy band whose leader, Hui, cowrites much of the material. • The nine-member group formed in 2016. The name PENTAGON is based on the idea that the bandmates bring together five elements on their path to success: vocals, dance, talent, teamwork, and their minds. • Their 2018 hit “Shine” showcases the band’s playful nature and witty, rhythmic flow. • In addition to being musicians, several members of PENTAGON are actors. • Rapper-songwriter E'Dawn left the group in 2018, and in 2020, Jinho went on hiatus to fulfill his mandatory South Korean military service. • After a series of EPs, PENTAGON released their debut album, Universe: The Black Hall, in 2020.
