Pentagon, "Humph!"

The boy band now becomes the act with the most World Albums entries current under K-pop label Cube Entertainment.

It's lucky number five for Pentagon as the K-pop boy band claims their latest entry on World Album. 

The group's new Sum(Me:R) EP debuts at No. 12 on Billboard's World Albums chart for the week dated July 27. Altogether, this becomes the fifth entry on the tally since their October 2016 debut.

Pentagon's chart history began in 2017 with their Ceremony EP (which debuted at No. 14 on World Albums that June) with the band also sending their Demo_01 EP to World Albums later that year too (peaking at No. 5, their highest entry to date). In 2018, Pentagon sent Positive to No. 9 on the chart (the EP that included their signature song "Shine" that earned them their highest-charting song on World Digital Song Sales chart). This year, the outfit has earned two entries with Genie:us (hitting No. 15 earlier this spring) and, now, Sum(Me:R).

Pentagon is the newest boy band under one of K-pop's biggest agencies in Cube Entertainment and, now, with five entries on World Albums, Pentagon now becomes the label's act with the most entries in their current roster.

In company history, the guys tie with Cube's former boy band Beast (who first debuted on the chart in 2012 and earned five entries before leaving the label in 2016) and pull ahead of Cube's disbanded girl group 4Minute (who have four entires) and former solo star HyunA (also with four). Pentagon are now ahead of Cube's current roster of acts in terms of overall entries including CLC (who have four albums) BToB (three), (G)I-DLE (two), Triple H (one) and Troublemaker (one). 

Altogether, the latest chart feat shows continued, stateside interest in the Cube boy band and becomes all the more important ahead of the band's first U.S. tour coming during their 'Prism' world tour.
