The Love Life of Pentagon
Being the second youngest group from Cube Entertainment, Pentagon is a 10-member boy band that made their debut in 2016. Their pre-debut show Pentagon Maker, made the group famous and they gained lots of fans which later became known as Universe. It took them a relatively long time to be widely known by the public, which came about with their hit song Shine when Pentagon became wholly supported by Universe, that is until a dating scandal tested the bond between them. Even so, most of the fans who have been there since Pentagon’s debut have stayed because after all, they support Pentagon’s music and still respect the group’s privacy and personal matters.
In this article, Channel-Korea will provide you with a deeper insight into the subject of Pentagon members’ ideal type of woman and compile some of its members dating news that you certainly do not want to miss out on. So, stay tuned!
Pentagon Members’ Ideal Type of Woman
Despite the obvious preference in attractive girls, each Pentagon member has disclosed their ideal type in detail. Their leader E’Dawn has said that he likes a girl who is similar to him and has a blunt and honest personality. On a similar note of describing the personality of his ideal type, Hui has said that he likes a girl who works hard, “She is willing to be the best at what she does.” Other members such as YeoOne, Yanan, Kino, and Yuto have also expressed their like of a girl with a positive mindset and bright personality, not forgetting to mention that among the physical features of Yuto’s ideal type is short hair.
Contrastly, the rest Pentagon members described the girls whom they look for as their girlfriends. The main vocal of the group, Jinho, has said that he likes a feminine girl who has pretty nails and long black hair, whereas Shinwon is attracted to a short and cute girl with a round face. The rapper Wooseok does not really care about the girl’s appearance as long as she often smiles prettily. Lastly, Hongseok is looking for a girl who has similar preferences with him, “She must like the same food as me (so that we can eat together).”
Pentagon Members’ Dating Rumor
The first Pentagon member who was involved in a dating scandal is none other than the leader E’Dawn. The rumor came out from an internet forum which stated that E’Dawn looks strangely close to his Triple H’s female partner, Hyuna. Not only during their stage performance, but the netizens also noticed that Hyuna often touches E’Dawn; frequently petting his face and shoving her chest toward him.
On August 2nd, 2018, Cube Entertainment denied the alleged rumor saying that both E’Dawn and Hyuna are just colleagues and have a close senior and junior relationship. However, a different statement had been issued the very next day as Yonhap News reported that Hyuna and E’Dawn personally contacted them and shared that they had been dating for two years. The shocking news made some Pentagon fans demand E’Dawn be taken out of the group, and they even signed a petition which urged him to do so. On August 22nd, 2018, Cube Entertainment finally took action regarding the issue by putting E’Dawn on indefinite hiatus from Pentagon.
Back in 2016 when Mnet’s Pentagon Maker was being aired, some of the group’s members, such as Wooseok and Hongseok, described the type of girl whom E’Dawn is looking for, “Dawn hyung loves sexy girls with a cat face. She must have a high nose and a mole under the eyes.” The netizens later realized that these facial features resemble Hyuna and that Pentagon members were already aware that E’Dawn and Hyuna have been dating since then.
It cannot be refuted that E’Dawn and Hyuna’s dating scandal has turned their career in shambles as they once declared to have been kicked out from Cube Entertainment. Even though the decision has been altered the very next day, due to the drastic drop in the agency’s stock, Hyuna’s position as a singer and artist in Cube Entertainment had been terminated on October 15th, 2018.
The agency issued a statement saying that they have reached an agreement to terminate Hyuna’s contract. On the other hand, E’Dawn’s indefinite position in Pentagon is yet to be confirmed. That same week, Hyuna uploaded several photos and videos with E’Dawn, as if indicating that her departure from Cube Entertainment only made her relieved.
The second Pentagon member who was involved in a dating scandal is the third member of Triple H, Hui with a member of the female rookie girl group (G)I-DLE’s, namely Soojin. It was claimed that they were allegedly dating, after several photos of them going out on a date and shopping while linking arms, as well as having couple items, surfaced on internet forums.
Cube Entertainment made a fast clarification of the issue, “After checking with them, we have found out that the pair in question (Pentagon’s Hui and (G)I-DLE’s Soojin) were indeed dating but have already split up.”
Pentagon’s Yuto is another member of the group who has been involved in a dating rumor with CLC’s Yeeun. The two of them were seen sharing a snack together in a department store and walking together in the public.
Their agency Cube Entertainment stated that Pentagon’s Yuto and CLC’s Yeeun are only close friends, “They have been friends since their training as rappers of their respective groups. Both Yuto and Yeeun always support each other as colleagues.”
Back in 2017, Pentagon’s Hongseok has been seen out to hang out with Produce 101 contestant Lee Su-hyun, in Cheonggyecheon Stream in the afternoon. Many netizens suspected that the two must be dating, however, many others were simply doubtful of the fact that the idols are really brave to go out in the afternoon without a mask.
Cube Entertainment later clarified that Pentagon’s Hongseok and Produce 101’s Lee Su-hyun are just close friends, “They just met up after a long time. The weather was really nice so they went to Cheonggyecheon.” In addition, the agency stated that if Hongseok and Su-hyun were actually dating, they wouldn’t be hanging around so blatantly.
Even though the dating rumors have been clarified by Cube Entertainment, the netizens still suspected other Pentagon members, namely Shinwon and Wooseok, are dating but they had a lack of strong evidence.
Shinwon is suspected of dating CLC’s Eunbin, whom he became close friends with ever since their training days. A photo of the two, supposedly hanging out at night came out making the netizens believe that the person standing next to Eunbin is Shinwon.
Truth to be told, Shinwon met Eunbin for the first time when he was 19 years old at an audition meeting. Later, Shinwon and Eunbin become friends and dancing partners for the stage performance of Black Dress on the United Cube Concert on June 16th, 2018.
Shinwon shared his thoughts about having Eunbin as his dancing partner, “It is beyond my imagination (to partner up with her). It was just too funny when we were practicing because I really did not expect it. We did not choose our partners ourselves. She is a friend I am very comfortable with, so it is good.”
As for Wooseok, his dating rumor with CLC’s Seungyeon has only been based on a witness statement claiming that he has seen them on a date in the Sungsoo-dong area. Even so, the fan account has stated that there are pictures of Wooseok that indicate his dating relationship with CLC’s Seungyeon.
