Let’s Get to Know More About BtoB’s Brother-Group Under CUBE Entertainment, Pentagon
Pentagon, sometimes abbreviated as PTG, is a South Korean boy-band formed by Cube Entertainment in 2016. The group consists of nine members: Jinho, Hui, Hongseok, Shinwon, Yeo One, Yan An, Yuto, Kino and Wooseok.
The members were first introduced to the public through the Pentagon Maker survival event. Even though there were initially only seven members selected, including Jinho, Hui, Hongseok, Yeo-One, Yuto, Kino and Wooseok, they still ultimately included three previously-eliminated members, E’dawn, Shinwon, and Yan-An.
In 2018, amid their success with the song ‘Shine’, one member was forced to leave because he was fired by the agency. The member is E’dawn, who was hit by a dating scandal with fellow Cube artist, Hyuna. After E’dawn’s departure on November 14, 2018, Pentagon officially became a nine-member group. Then, Yan-An decided to temporarily leave, so Pentagon continued working with only eight members.
