"Gento" is a pop, hip-hop track recorded by Filipino boy band SB19 for its "PAGTATAG!" EP. The song, which talks about empowerment, was written by SB19's leader Pablo and co-produced by Joshua Daniel Nase and Simon Servida.

In the song, Pablo used gold mining and refining gold as a metaphor for achieving success.

"Gento" continues to dominate South Korea, most notably in the K-Pop industry, with several K-Pop idols jumping on the craze. South Korean personalities like singer-songwriter Oh Sae-bom, TikTok star Vincent Hsu and fashion model Haesung also joined in on the "Gento" dance craze.

It has also reached Malaysian idols. Just recently, Malaysian pop boy band O.V.A covered and performed SB19's hit song during the Absolut Food Fest in Kuala Lumpur.
