Last Oct 6th, TOKIO‘s Kokubun Taichi attended the fan meeting for his first quiz show at NHK, “Kuizu ! 100 Jinriki” (Quiz 100! Human Power). The said quiz show will start its broadcast on Oct 27th, 8:00 PM (JST) where Kokubun will act as the show’s chairman.
The unprecendented quiz show will use 100 manpower, who will jointly use their “superman” knowledge and ability, to answer questions. The show will be a “100” showdown and though the show will only be a one-time special, the staff are hoping that this will become a regular one.
The showdown will be between employees and residents of Kusatsu Onsens vs. Isamu Gunji, a hot spring scholar. Both were chosen to abide with the quiz’s theme- “hot spring”. Kusatsu has been famous for it’s hot springs since Yayoi period, in fact, the area is a well-known tourist destination for local and international visitors. While Gunji is known for studying hot springs and have bathe in 5,000 hot springs across Japan. The battle will be regional solidarity vs. charisma.
“Pls. look forward to it,” Kokubun said, “The confrontation between the two really left an impression to me.”
“Kuizu ! 100 Jinriki” will air on Oct 27th, 8:00 PM, JST.
