K-pop boy band Pentagon returned Tuesday (Feb. 11) with their new single “Dr. Bebe” and its gripping music video.
Kicking off with the ticking of a metronome and shots of Pentagon members facing terrors, the haunting music video for “Dr. Bebe” features the act serving up the song through dramatic scenes of them relaying powerful, deadly choreography and shots of them raging over love and encountering a variety of dangerous encounters. It ends with them struggling, as if trying to get away from the painful love they’re singing about, only to find themselves all trapped in a singular room, ostensibly a mental hospital.
As for the song itself, “Dr. Bebe” is dynamic in its propulsive angst, varying between pounding choruses, rapidfire raps, and melodic, desperate verses propelled by off-kilter beats with the occasional piano and siren effects, showcasing the diverse tones of the eight members.
The track, which was co-written by Hui and Wooseok, is the lead single from the act’s Universe: The Black Hall LP, out worldwide on Feb. 12. It is the act’s first full-length album since the act started its career together in 2016; they have released nine EPs since then, including last July’s Sum(me:r), which peaked at No. 12 on the World Albums chart that month.
