Yang Hongseok Biography

Yang Hongseok was born on 17 April 1994, in Seoul, South Korea.

His family moved to the United States when he was seven years old and first lived in San Diego, California before transferring to Madison Wisconsin.

He is 29 years old. Yang is 5ft 11ins (1.80m) tall and weighs about 145lbs (65kgs) with a lean muscular build.

Yang Hongseok had his primary schooling in San Diego and Madison in the US, then continued his studies at the Hwa Chong International School in Singapore from 2007 to 2010.

He moved to China and finished high school at the Tianjin Nankai High School, before enrolling in the University of International Business and Economics in Beijing, but dropped out and went back to South Korea.

In 2007, Yang Hongseok’s parents moved again, to Singapore and stayed there until 2010. They then moved again to Tianjin, China, and later on, he transferred to Beijing, China’s capital, to pursue his university degree.

Yang Hongseok was rumoured to be dating another K-Pop trainee, Lee Soohyun, back in 2017 – there were leaked photos of him and Soohyun roaming around Cheonggyecheon Stream, a popular dating spot in Seoul. 

Yang Hongseok is currently single and focused on his goals with the Pentagon. He does not have children

 His rise to stardom began with Pentagon’s self-titled extended play (EP) that was released in October of 2016.

Yang Hongseok was first seen in the “Mix and Match” reality TV survival series, produced by YG Entertainment in September of 2014. YG founder, Yang Hyun Seok, was forming another boyband and wanted to choose the best trainees by putting them through a 9-episode survival series.

Unfortunately, Hongseok came up short and wasn’t chosen in the final group, but was given a chance to continue training at YG Entertainment.

Yang Hongseok chose to join Cube Entertainment, as it was home to popular groups including 4Minute, Beast, BtoB, and G-idle, and so have the chance to debut soon and he did. He went through another reality TV survival series called, “Pentagon Maker,” as Cube management wanted to test their trainees to confirm their readiness to be launched as the company’s fifth K-Pop group.

Ten trainees battled for 12 weeks – each of them needed to get five points on their so-called “Pentagraph,” which consisted of five categories including Teamwork, Mind, Dance, Vocal/Rap, and Talent.

With the experience he had from YG’s “Mix and Match,” Yang Hongseok made it as one of the final members of Pentagon, and on 10 October 2016, Hongseok and nine other trainees (Hui, Yeo One, Yan An, Jinho, Shinwon, Yuto, Wooseok, Kino, and E’Dawn) debuted with a self-titled EP.

In November of the same year, Hongseok experienced a fan signing event, even with only 100 fans in attendance, but he was quite overwhelmed when tickets for their first concert were sold out within eight minutes after it was announced. “Pentagon Mini Concert Tentastic Vol. 1” was held on 6 December at the Yes24 Concert Hall in Seoul.

Yang Hongseok also became busy with TV and web dramas, including “Best Chicken” with Joo Woo Jae and Kim So Hye, which aired in the early part of 2018 on MBN and Dramax networks.

In 2019, Yang Hongseok lent his musical composition skills by taking part in the creative process of a couple of songs entitled “Round 1” and “Round 2,” which were both bonus tracks in the EPs, “Genie:us” and “Sum(me:r),”  released in March and July, respectively. Both EPs did well on the charts, with a total of almost 80,000 units sold.
