It’s finally time for Pentagon to enter the Kpop world as Cube’s newest boy group! Since the beginning of October, the 10 member group took on a new concept as Webtoon characters and starred in their own introductory episodes called, Pentoons. The group also released individual teaser images of them as their Pentoon characters.
Previously, Episode 1 introduced Hong Seok– the book worm, E’Dawn– the heir- and Yeo One with his less than satisfactory grades. Episode two then saw the introduction of academically successful Yan An and Hui who were tired of school and work. Each of the members were in search of their own happiness and reflected on why their current situation seemed so bleak.
“Start Over 03” dropped on October 3rd and introduced two more members- Woo Seok and Shin Won. While Woo Seok finds comfort in a frog-doll and contemplates contacting someone, Shin Won is tired of his cowardice and wonders if his current state is a result of his own doings.
Watch Pentoon 3 here:
Below are the translations for the frames:
Frame 1: “I no longer care about what other people think of me.”
Frame 2: “No one else understands me, so it’s comfortable to talk to you”
Frame 3: “Today was just one of those days again”
Frame 4: “Isn’t there any person I can meet? Is that person doing well? It has been a long time, should I contact that person?”
Frame 6: “Is it my fault that I’ve become like this?”
Frame 7: “Until when should I endure being a coward?”
On the same day Pentagon also revealed their album track list. It was revealed that E’Dawn, Hui, and Woo Seok were members that participated in the production process. The album would contain seven tracks, with “Gorilla” chosen as the title track to be used for promotions.
The group also released the fourth Pentoon episode on that day, “Start Over 04“, which introduced the final three members- Kino, Yuto, and Jin Ho. Kino is introduced as a fencer, while Yuto and Jin Ho are a baseball player and painter respectively.
Check out Pentoon 4 here:
Kino is seen as struggling with his chosen sport, despite his desire to be a top fencer. He’s sad about how things have turned out even though he’s invested so much time practicing.
Below are the translations for his frames:
Frame 2: “I really almost killed myself practicing this time”
Frame 3: “But in the end it’s turned out like this again.”
Meanwhile baseball player, Yuto, struggles with having to give up what he loves and excels at in favor of grades. “Homerun He Lost in 3rd Year” is the title of his story and his frames translate as follows:
Frame 4: “Why do they say it’s wrong for me to do what I enjoy?”
Frame 5: “There are so many things I’m good at that aren’t studying. Do I have to give it all up like this?”
And finally, “What Did Picasso do When he Was 19” tells the story of artistic Jin Ho who wonders if there’s something else for him besides following his tiresome daily routine. His frames are translated below:
Frame 6: “I’m so tired of this repetitive daily life”
Frame 7: “Is this really want I want to do?”
