Get to Know Pentagon
Pentagon is a South Korean boy-group who debuted in 2016 under the company Cube Entertainment. The group originally consisted of 10 members: Jin-ho, Hui, Hong-seok, Shin-won, Yeo One, Yan An, Yuto, Kino, Woo-seok, and E’Dawn, but E’Dawn left the group in November 2018, after a dating scandal involving him and former 4Minute member Hyuna. While E’Dawn is already known as one of the people in K-pop with the most tattoos, how about the rest of Pentagon members? In this article, Channel-Korea will give you the list of Pentagon members’ tattoos.
Pentagon and Tattoos
On September 6, 2017, Pentagon released their fourth EP, titled DEMO_01. The album consists of five tracks, including the title track Like This, which was composed by Flow Blow and member Hui, with lyrics by Hui, E’Dawn, Yuto, and Woo-seok.
On August 29, they released their second set of concept photos for DEMO_01. The photo set with the red background shows more a darker and sexier theme compared to the first photo set. In the new batch of photos, members of Pentagon show off their sexy charms with unique tattoos on their bodies. The members got themselves some temporary tattoos of their own choices, except for E’Dawn, who had already sported his own tattoos, as the concept of the photo set.
In the individual photo, Jin-ho doesn’t seem to have any visible tattoos. But, in the extended photo set from CUBE, we can see that he has angel wings tattooed on his feet, with the wings separated on his right and left feet.
In the photo below, we can also see two tattoos which cannot be seen in the individual photo, due to the collar of his shirt. Below his right ear are tattooed in the shape of three raindrops and heartbeat.
In the individual photo, we can’t see Hui sporting any tattoos, either. But if you look at the group photo closely, Hui actually has a tattoo of some words written along his left forearm and extending to his hand.
In the individual photo, Hong-seok can be seen with a tattoo below his left ear in the shape of a cross.
In another photo, Hong-seok is spotted as having another tattoo on his collarbone, in the shape of a razor blade, and it seems that he also has another one peeking from his back.
In the individual photo, Shin-won has some intricate tattoos below his left ear and along his left forearm.
Through the extended photo from CUBE, we can also see some tattoos decorating his right hand. There is even a tattoo in the shape of a duck among many other small tattoos on this area. Although the tattoos on his hands are mostly small and seemingly unrelated shapes, the one below his ear turns out to be a picture of an astronaut landing on what seems to be the moon.
In the individual photo, there are tattoos of some words and a picture decorating his exposed chest. The words written are ‘all of my life’ and the picture seems to be that of nails and crosses.
Through the extended CUBE pictures, we can see there is a tattoo of a rose on his chest, extending from his sternum to his diaphragm.
Through the individual photo, we can see a tattoo in the shape of a gun peeking on his neck below his left ear. In the CUBE picture, we can see the tattoo more clearly.
In the photo below, we can see the shape of the gun more clearly.
In a photo taken from another event, Yan An was also spotted with what seems to be a permanent tattoo on his chest area. Fans have speculated that this tattoo that can only be seen partially is in the shape of the word ‘change’ in regards to all the struggles that he has been through.
Yuto seems to have opted for a simple tattoo, as there is one in the shape of a feather on his neck, below his right ear.
In another photo, we can see another tattoo peeking shyly from his chest area in the shape of something we haven’t figured out yet!
For Kino, he seems to have a lot of small tattoos, as well as some big ones littering the backs of his hands. On top of his left hand, there is a big one in the shape of what seems like thorns with a rose and on the side he has a small one in the shape of a triangle, while on top of his right hand there is a leaf garland with the word ‘Innovation’ (we’re not sure too!) and an arrow on the side. On top of his fingers are also some small tattoos in the shape of letters.
Woo-seok has a very large and obvious one on his forearm, in the shape of the letters VIII VIII.IV IX, or the roman numbers for ‘8 8.4 9’.
On either side of his neck there are also two big roses, with the photo below showing the process of him getting the tattoos done.
If you are curious about the full view of the tattoos from this photo set, there is a whole separate photo album included in the DEMO_01 album set containing the photos above and more. Make sure you check that out!
Honorable Mention: E’Dawn
If we are talking about E’Dawn’s tattoos, it seems like we would need a whole day to go over each and every one of them. He already had permanent ones inked on his body, so he did not need to have any temporary tattoos drawn on him for the photo shoot.
On his left shoulder, there is a large one in the shape of a heart, with the roman letters of his birthday ‘MCIMXCIV VI I’ written on a ribbon on top of the heart, while on the side of his left wrist there is a tiny one in the shape of a circle.
On his neck, below his left ear, there is a red and green tattoo in the shape of the word ‘FreeDom’ with the ‘om’ part streaked and the small letters ‘awn’ written on top of it to create his name, E’Dawn.
On his left forearm, there is a large, green circle tattoo and on his right arm, there are the words ‘Kiss Me’ and the shape of cherries.
On the back of his neck there is a simple black tattoo in the shape of a cross.
Below the cross, there is another large one on his back, in the shape of a deer, complete with the antlers.
On his right side, on his ribs, there is a tattoo of the Latin words ‘clavis aurea’, which translates to ‘golden key’.
He had the drawing of a simple flower tattooed on his right hand, to which he later added the word ‘GooD’ below the flower.
There is a big, bold tattoo of the number ’10’ in his pelvis area that sometimes shows from the waistband of his pants.
Lastly, on his right wrist, there are three small tattoos in the shape of red Xs.
