Pentagon's Hongseok under controversy for his comments about fellow idol group ONF

Pentagon's Hongseok is under fire for his comments about fellow idol group ONF.

Hongseok held a live stream on V app to communicate with fans and made vitriolic remarks about idol groups in the process of recommending his groups songs with ONF member E-Tion.

Hongseok stated, "If I recommend a song called Asteroids, people will only listen to our songs. I'm trying to protect ONF's pride. Both songs have the same title but listening to ONF's Asteroids will make you feel deprived. Pentagon is better than ONF."

Asteroids is a song released by ONF in October 2019 and later in February 2020 Pentagon released a song with the same title.

He continued with his unilateral criticism of another song with the same title "Sumseong." He stated, "If ONF encounters Pentagon's asteroid, they'll feel like frogs in a pond. I didn't want to shock ONF." After making fans angry due to his remarks he added, "let's keep it a secret between us because our friends ONF will go crazy if they know about it."

But he didn't' stop there. He continued to make remarks about ONF stating, "to be honest our asteroid is a little better."

Plot: Twenty years ago, Yoon Ji Soo (Jeon So Nee) fell in love with a man who made her heart sing. As a freshman in the college of music, Ji Soo didn’t expect to catch the eye of Han Jae Hyun (Park Jinyoung), a popular, headstrong law school student, but she did. Falling for him as quickly as he fell for her, the two experienced one of the most beautiful moments any two people can experience together: their first love. But like so many first loves, theirs wouldn’t last forever.

Now in her forties, Ji Soo (Lee Bo Young) is a single mother, working a contract job in a desperate attempt to make ends meet. Jae Hyun (Yoo Ji Tae), on the other hand, is a successful, ambitious businessman who has pursued wealth and honor, above all else. Far different than the man he once was, Jae Hyun is hardly recognizable as the headstrong kid he used to be. But when fate brings Ji Soo back into his life, she recognizes him almost immediately.

Suddenly back in each other’s lives, Ji Soo and Jae Hyun have been granted a rare opportunity to start over. But can two people really separated by so many years and experiences, really reignite a flame that flickered out so many years ago?

A story of first loves and second chances, “When My Love Blooms” is a 2020 romantic drama directed by Song Jung Hyun.
