This rumor was written separately but I decided to post it as one since both involves Kanjani8 members.
- Shibutani Subaru is Johnny’s classified weapon for his “mature women” strategy (Google translates “mature women” to MILF.lol.)
Kanjani8‘s Shibutani Subaru is being groom as Johnny’s weapon to lure mature women in his attempt to expand his market to finish off Korean Wave.
It is a fact that most Johnny’s fans are centered on younger female population; however, it is a different story with mature women. In lieu to this, Johnny is grooming Subaru to lure mature women to JE fandom. Rumor has it that Subaru is a “mature woman killer” among Johnny’s talents.
According to one entertainment weekly reporter, Subaru has a certain charm that makes people, who aren’t even interested with Johnny’s, fell captive with his singing voice.
A well-informed person said that there is an existing Subaru fan club that requires its members to be at least 45 years old and older. There are already 30,000 members and counting. Moreover, the membership fee is free, but it’s members invest around 1 million Yen/year so women must have enough money and time to spare to be admitted as a member.
The rising new market of mature women is Johnny’s latest target to crush Korean boom with Subaru in the middle of it. Especially with Japanese-Korean relations being in the rough, Johnny is looking at this new market to generate billions of Yen that usually lost with Kpop boom.
The “mature woman” strategy has just started.
Sorry, I still don’t get the meaning of this rumor, but it surely amuses me.
- Ryo Nishikido Attends Purification Ceremony after a Ghost Scare
Kanjani8‘s Ryo Nishikido is rumored to be freaked-out by a supposed-to-be ghost appearance from Kanjani8’s “EIGHT RANGER” movie. Nishikido has been going around shrines to do a purification ritual and has been carrying charms and amulets for protection.
Apparently, 30 mins and 44 secs after the start of “ER” movie, a male ghost’s reflection was seen on Nishikido (only). After hearing about it, Nishikido reported feeling sickly so he went to shrines for some purification.
“None of the members believe it was a ghost; they were even laughing about it, but Nishikido panicked after hearing about the ghost’s apparition,” a staff shared.
Upon closer inspection and review, a well-informed person said that the male ghost’s looked like one of the movie’s staff that died in a car accident weeks ago. The said staff is in good terms with the members of Kanjani8 and [he] must have wanted to see the movie shooting until the end.
Lastly, after Nishikido attended a purification ceremony, he gave out charms to the staff.
WTF? My eyes just bled.
