Pentagon’s Five Senses

Pentagon is a ten-member boy group under CUBE Entertainment. They debuted in 2016 after a reality show competition called “Pentagon Maker.” Five Senses is their second EP. While they haven’t been around long, they’ve proved to be very successful thanks to their great music and good looks. What makes the fans stay though, is their adorable, quirky personalities.

Five Senses

  1. 감이 오지 Can You Feel It

“Can You Feel It” has a slightly vintage, but somehow also electronic sound. It features a bad-boy vibe and the music video has an incredibly intriguing alter-ego concept. If you like this song, you should listen to their debut song, “Gorilla.”

Watch the music video here:

Watch them perform it here:

  1. Engine

“Engine” is a favorite among many Pentagon fans, especially because some of the members helped compose the song. It begins as a ballad, but builds into a more electronic beat that you cant help but dance along to.

  1. 예쁨 Pretty Pretty

This song is almost a polar opposite to “Can You Feel It.” “Pretty Pretty” has the perfect cutesy, boy-in-love vibe. Both the choreography and the music video are adorable.

  1. 풀러 Lose Yourself

“Lose Yourself” also has a bit of a “flashback to the past” feel. It’s a fun song that shows off the group’s vocals and a reminder to “loosen your tightly wound heart,” as they put it.

  1. 정신 못 차려도 돼 Stay Crazy

This song is a sweet, soft note to end the album on. Each member’s abilities really stand out in this piece. E’Dawn actually helped write the lyrics. Some of my favorite lines are:

“Turn on the music you want

Match the mood with the stars

It’s alright to let go, it’s okay to stay crazy”

Final Thoughts

I think Pentagon is such a great group and I can’t believe I didn’t listen to them sooner! They’re so precious and talented so let’s support them lots. ^^ Do you have a favorite member? Is there a song you like best from the album? I love “감이 오지 Can You Feel It”!

We want to hear what you think!
