    The members of the band will start to serve in three days, right in the middle of filming for the show “Road to Kingdom”.

    Jinho from popular K-pop boy group Pentagon will enlist as an active-duty soldier on the 11th of May, Cube Entertainment confirmed on 8 May. He is the eldest member and the first one to enlist.

    According to his wish, he will be quietly inducted without any events. Pentagon will continue its activities and promotion as a seven-member band. They will continue to compete on the Mnet survival show "Road to Kingdom", which is currently filming, without Jinho.

    Fans are frustrated at the sudden news and are criticising the agency, who announced the news so late under the trending hashtag #jinho:

    ​Pentagon debuted in 2016 with its first mini-album "Pentagon" and loved by fans all over the world. The band has proven to be talented and successful and has even made it to the Billboard and iTunes charts on several occasions. They have also gone out on a few worldwide tours.
