Netizens have nicknamed Pentagon as "the rookie idol group with three dating scandals in one day".
If you recall, in the early morning of August 2, HyunA and Pentagon's E'Dawn, currently promoting in project group Triple H, became wrapped up in dating rumors. Cube Entertainment promptly denied the rumors, stating that the two were only close sunbae-hoobaes; however, the two ultimately admitted to media outlets that they are, in fact, dating.
The dating scandals within Cube Entertainment didn't stop there. Some time afterward, photos of Pentagon's Hui and (G)I-DLE's Soojin on a "shopping date" arm in arm brought on the second dating rumors. According to Cube Entertainment, the two labelmates dated in the past, but are already broken up.
And then, some fan-taken photos involving Pentagon, CLC, and (G)I-DLE members shopping together spurred on dating rumors between Pentagon's Yuto and CLC's Yeeun, as they were spotted walking together with a Cube manager, plus on the streets of Seongsu-dong.
Netizens are shocked by the number of dating rumors that Pentagon became involved in, in a matter of just one day. Some commented, "Can you guys please not hurt the other members with your dating news", "Mmm bye Pentagon", "Apparently they don't prevent idols from dating even though they're rookies", "This makes me disappointed; you can start dating when you're somewhat established you know, but if you're a fresh rookie, then...", "Caution flew out the window. Wow, so they get to date comfortably while making money", "I was getting super into Pentagon lately but I'm so disappointed now", etc.
Fans of Cube Entertainment's other artists like BTOB, Lai Kuan Lin, and Yu Seon Ho, are telling their idols to "Please leave Cube TT. Don't these kids know BTOB are carrying all Cube artists on their back working so hard", "Kuan Lin, Seon Ho, seriously leave Cube asap...", "Kuan Lin, Seon Ho, and [Jo] Woo Chan, you guys are probably going to debut together so be cautious and grow up well, not like these idiots who are kicking away their fame", and more.
Some netizens claimed that various Pentagon fansites announced a hiatus after the wave after wave of dating scandals. What do you think about all of the dating issues?
