[COVERAGE] Throwback to Pentagon’s Cutest Attempt at Singlish

“Walao eh, why everyone so chio!”

Now THAT’s a way to start a showcase, Pentagon!

That hysterical line came from none other than Hong Seok, who spent a good 4 years studying in Singapore and showed us just how Singaporean he was when the dashing Pentagon was in town for their first ever showcase.

While many visitors would point out attractions like Sentosa or Universal Studios as their favorite place to visit, Hong Seok announced that his favorite place in Singapore was Bukit Timah Plaza. The crowd couldn’t help but roll in laughter at his shy confession.

Refusing to lose to Hong Seok in trying to be more “Singaporean”, the rest of the boys tried their best to add “la” behind everything they said but completely fell out when Hong Seok triumphed with this line after finishing “Gorilla”:

“Actually this song is not Gorilla, its called Goril,la!”

Even we were taken aback with this pun.

Still, this didn’t stop Pentagon from putting up a vocally exciting performance despite being on their first ever showcase tour, giving Singapore Universe a taste of what the boys are capable of.

The showcase featured a huge range of group songs, sub-unit songs and crazy-close interaction with fans, where Singapore Universe celebrated E’Dawn’s belated birthday.

Their set list as follows:

  1. Wake Up
  2. Pentagon
  3. Engine
  4. Gorilla
  5. Lukewarm
  6. Smile
  7. Organic Song (E’Dawn, Wooseok, Yuto feat. Hui)
  8. What Makes You Beautiful (Shinwon, Hong Seok, Kino, Jinho, Yeoone)
  9. Find Me (Hong Seok, Jinho, E’Dawn, Shinwon)
  10. Young (Hui, Yeoone, Yuto, Wooseok, Kino)
  11. Can You Feel It
  12. Pretty Pretty
