A couple weeks ago, SaraG did a Musical Monday about Pentagon and memorizing the names of a crap ton of boy group members. Pentagon was a bit of a struggle – there are a lot of them and several of the members look similar – but we were feeling pretty good about it. The goal was to be fairly confident about who was who before their comeback. Well, Critical Beauty dropped less than a week ago and its pretty darn catchy. However, hilariously, other people must have felt the same way about the members looking similar, because they styled them all as sets of twins! /throws hands in the air in exasperation
I adore Hui’s lion-like face and gorgeous voice.
My current favorite is E’Dawn, high-toned rapper and lead dancer of the group.
Not to sound too shallow, but I usually you pick my initial group bias by looks (I assume most people do, but I could be wrong). With Pentagon, I thought I’d try something different – because there were so many of them and they’re all so pretty – and pick somebody who’s voice I was drawn to. I was listening to Pretty Pretty and just loved the whiney rap part.
I looked up who it was, and it was E’Dawn. I was not disappointed. (This is a fairly safe strategy with any idol group since none of them are ever dogs, but these guys aren’t called Visual-agon for no reason).
They were both former JYP trainees, ended up in Pentagon together, and then were paired with Hyuna to form the sub-unit, Triple H. Hui is holding that song together with his hero vocals. Bless him.
Neither of them are particularly tall. It’s cute to watch them with Hyuna. In her heels, she’s slightly taller. I’m not going to link it all here but, though I wasn’t a huge fan of the video for 365 So Fresh, the variety the three do together is very funny.
And, I think we’ll call that good. I hope you consider stanning Pentagon! See you next week!
