All 6 tracks written and composed by PENTAGON members genuinely illustrate their diversified musical colors and in-depth stories of their full-grown inner selves, adding to the authenticity of the tracks.


In particular, the new music video, which reinterprets the objects expressing ‘temptation’ in ancient artworks with a modern viewpoint, illustrates PENTAGON's seductive and powerful attraction that stimulates the five senses. Their unique charms make it inevitable for the viewers to accept their invitation.

Track List

01. Feelin’ Like

Composed by RYAN JHUN, Kristin Marie, Vegard Hurum, Jop Pangemanan

Lyrics by HAEE, KINO, JINHO, WOOSEOK

Arranged by RYAN JHUN, Vegard Hurum


‘Feelin’ Like’ is an energetic pop and powerful R&B genre song, which the perfect combination of the two genres immediately catches listeners’ ears from the intro. The song takes a motif from the myth of Pygmalion’s statue, Galatea, and describes the moments of awakening, pleasure, and realization by using their own words, to present PENTAGON’s new way of loving. JINHO, KINO, and WOOSEOK participated in the lyrics writing, proving to be a self-producing idol. With new music and performance style compared to what PENTAGON had performed previously, with a classier and upscale vibe, they wish to begin a story of their own through this song.


02. One Shot

Composed by WOOSEOK, NATHAN, SHINWON

Lyrics by WOOSEOK, SHINWON

Arranged by NATHAN, MILLENNIUM


Just like must-have condiments for tasty food, PENTAGON’s bold and extraordinary attempts to cater to the public’s taste continue. Alternative rock genre song ‘One Shot’ is a track based on a stimulating and glamorous hard rock guitar riff that mesmerizes everyone’s ears from the start. This is an uplifting track with blasting energy that figuratively describes the desire to fearlessly go on a spree in a situation when there is only one last shot left to our lives. The theme, ‘You’ in the track ‘One Shot’, allows listeners to imagine their own subject, and depending on who or what you think of, it enables the song to be more diverse with its meanings hence making it more amusing.


03. The Game

Composed by WOOSEOK, NATHAN, yunji, HOHO

Lyrics by WOOSEOK

Arranged by NATHAN, yunji


‘The Game’ is a sensational glitch synth sound and rock sound added electronic genre song. This track compares happenings full of tensions in our life to a game to illustrate PENTAGON’s relaxed and humorous attitudes despite whatever situation they are in. 

In particular, the powerful and catchy lyrics in the chorus part such as ‘Livelier, just run, blow it all’, and operatic elements in different parts are added to offer a more unique and mature musical color of PENTAGON.


04. Call My Name

Composed by KINO, KimZion, Milano

Lyrics by KINO, HAEE, WOOSEOK

Arranged by KimZion, Yo Seb Son, Hyeogdu Choi


KINO and producer KimZion who has been trying different genres of music through songs such as ‘When It Rains In Night’, ‘HAPPINESS KR Ver.’, have joined forces together again. The friction of the lips while calling my name, that overwhelming tension at the specific moment is described in the song. KINO has used ‘voice’ as a motif in his previously released mixtape song ‘Voicegasm’, and in ‘Call My Name’ the motif is taken further from that to sing about a story between the two that has become deeper.


05. Sparkling Night

Composed by KINO, ROAMER DOZE

Lyrics by KINO, WOOSEOK

Arranged by ROAMER DOZE


This song portrays a Ferris wheel at the center of a theme park on a beach where millions of stars are flowing in the sky. PENTAGON’s member KINO participated in the writings of lyrics to highlight the nostalgic and emotional mood of the song.


‘Sparkling Night’ metaphorically illustrates the wistful feeling of when your time is up and have to get off at the end of the ride from a Ferris wheel but can’t step off easily because of the beautiful scenery in front of meeting and breaking up in the context of a relationship. Especially, in contrast to the ardent emotion, earnest lyrics on the warm and serene melody make the listeners focus deeper on the song.


06. BAD

Composed by WOOSEOK, Siixk Jun

Lyrics by WOOSEOK

Arranged by Siixk Jun


There’s a guy who loves his lover more than anything, but everyone around him and the situation he is in seems to be all directing him that breakup is the only answer. This song tells a familiar yet bad breakup story of everyone who is so badly considerate that they wish for the other person’s happiness even at the very moment of saying the last goodbye.


PENTAGON’s member WOOSEOK took part in the lyrics and songwriting of ‘BAD’. The track is based on a simple but concise guitar riff and catchy melody with a classic and minimal sound source as a main rhythm. It wishes to comfort and empathize with everyone who is facing a breakup or going through a heartbreaking breakup.
