In this post, I’ll introduce about my current obsession which is Johnny’s Entertainment. A company for idols in Japan. Well, basically, I’m not into the company but the group inside the company. Johnny’s took kids as young as 5 to expose them to the world of entertainment. They need to undergo audition before learn on how to dance and sing as well as act. Johnny’s top idol must know how to sing, dance, act, host and some even compose their own songs.
I was first introduced to the Johnny’s entertainment from a group named KAT-TUN. It used to be a group of six which initial name made up the group name. however, one of their member drop out to pursue his own solo career since he’s more interested to sing in english this year. From that group, I started to like another group which lead to many other group.
Now, let me introduce you to 5 of my favorite group.
1ST:ARASHI is a group of 5 which was formed in September 1999. It’s been almost 11 years for them and they are now considered the face of Japan duento their influence. I love their natural characteristic and songs that never fails to motivate me whenever I’m feeling down. Their show are also quite popular and interesting. The members consist of Matsumoto Jun, Ninomiya Kazunari, Ohno Satoshi, Sakurai Sho and Aiba Masaki.
A group of six who debut after 4 years of their formation. Thy were formed in 2001 as a backdancer to their senior before debuting in 2005 with a hit song ‘Real Face’. They are the delinquent image of Johnny’s although their personality is different from their image. In 2010, Jin, a member of their group announce about his drop out of KAT-TUN after his solo concert in U.S. Their songs are very nice to hear as it consist of many genre. Members include Kamenashi Kazuya, Taguchi Junnosuke, Tanaka Koki, Ueda Tatsuya and Nakamaru Yuichi as well as the former member, Akanishi Jin (My fav)
A group of six formerly 8 who debuted in 2003. Most of their songs are catchy but what I admire the most about this group is their personality which is fun and funny. Some of them are great at acting. Members are Yamashita Tomohisa, Nishikido Ryo, Koyama Keiichiro, Masuda Takahisa, Tegoshi Yuya and Kato Shigeaki.
These three groups are my favorite apart from other groups such as SMAP, TOKIO and Hey Say Jump. I enjoyed the most their show and their relationship with each other. despite their different group which they are assigned to, they are close friends with each other. I learn a lot from them other than just entertainment. From now on, I’ll continue to support them. Yoroshiku~!!!
