Pentagon’s Yuto’s Career
Ever since the end of 2015, Cube Entertainment has hinted about the new boy group. Four months later, the agency revealed the soon-to-debut group with the trailer called “Come into the World” and joined collaboration with Mnet to create the reality program, Pentagon Maker. The show was airing on Mnet’s digital content brand M2.
Throughout the program, the fans were able to see many sides of Yuto. In episode 3, Yuto, who firmly said that he cannot act cute, unexpectedly did aegyo which was heart-fluttering to see.
On the other hand, Yuto showed his idol-like skills as he joined the battle performance with fellow contestant Kino in episode 6.
As one of the foreign contestants in the show, Yuto still had difficulty in speaking Korean. In episode 8, he was interviewed by Shinwon and E’Dawn and was forbidden to do certain actions, such as turning head when laughing, being expressionless, and saying ‘no’, ‘it is okay’, or ‘ah yeah’. The interview between the trio became funnier as Yuto undoubtedly did the forbidden actions countless times which you can watch in the video below.
After the airing of the program, Yuto and the other nine contestants released their pre-debut songs “Young” and “Final Me.” The music video of “Young” featured Yuto along with Hui, Kino, Wooseok, and Yeo One. Pentagon originally was slated to debut on July 23rd, 2016, but was delayed due to internal issues so they officially debuted three months later, on October 10th.
Soon after Pentagon’s debut, Yuto made his first cameo on Yeo One’s web drama Spark. Notably, Yuto was also accompanied by Hui, E’Dawn, and Wooseok. In one of the making videos, Pentagon members can be seen on the filming set.
Yuto also made a cameo appearance in the popular JTBC drama Age of Youth 2. Along with Kino, Yeo One, Jinho, Kino, Yeo One, and Wooseok, Yuto appeared briefly as the group called Asgard.
