Johnny’s-Watcher Rumor Round-Up (Digest 002)


Since I haven’t translated rumors for a long time and there’s too many of them now, I decided to do this digest (again).

Involved parties, are: Yamashita Tomohisa, Kimura Takuya, Tamamori Yuta, and A.B.C.-Z

  • Masami Nagasawa to do a cameo in Yamapi’s “SUMMER NUDE”

Rumor has it that Masami Nagasawa, who have worked with Yamapi in Dragon Zakura and ProDai, will do a guesting in Yamapi’s upcoming Getsu 9 series. Masami will play the role of that ex-girlfriend that Yamapi haven’t forgotten for leaving him without a word. Furthermore, there’s also a rumored heavy love scene. Masami also reportedly refused to do a “Moteki” sequel in favor of Yamapi’s drama. The two were rumored to be dating during ProDai but both denied the accusation.

  • Tamamori Yuta’s scandal photos got leaked in Facebook

Kis-My-Ft2‘s Tamamori Yuta celebrated his birthday in a VIP room of certain bar in Tokyo where he got too drunk. Invited girls cling to him and gave him kisses that the girls had a jealous quarrel afterwards. One girl decided to post a picture of her and Tamamori snogging. The said picture no longer exists (if it ever existed) and Ms. Iijima has sprung into action by pressuring affiliated media and doing some precautionary measures. This is not the time for Tamamori to be involved in a scandal since he has been thrust in the limelight.

  • Kimura Takuya in a new drama in October

After PRICELESS, SMAP‘s Kimura Takuya is rumored to return on TBS with “Oyaji no Senaka” drama. The story revolves around a father who left his family and has now become a politician. The said drama will be TBS “revenge” after they spent a lot of money with Kimura’s “Antartica” that has been highly criticized. Filming will start this July and no heroine has been cast yet; though the said role has been offered to Karina (but was refused) and the production turn to Ishihara Satomi.

  • A.B.C.-Z’s J’Journey is more successful than Tackey and Yamapi

A.B.C.-Z “J’ Journey Working on a Holiday” has proven to be more successful than it’s predecessors. ABC-Z managed to score 2.4-3.4% in ratings last May that some netizens have demanded to prolong the show. Chinen and Takaki’s France adventure average share has only reached 1-2% while Tackey’s South America trip have an average of 1.6-3.3%. ABC-Z’s May 20 broadcast was able to peak at 3.4%, making it the highest rating in the history of J’Journey.

Johnny’s-Watcher 1, 2, 3, and 4

Aside from the last one (about ABC-Z), everything else is all rumor.XDDD. The KimuTaku drama might be true, Masami in Yamapi’s drama might also be true, but the one about Tama is so-so.

  1. Wow, I have to say I’m a little shocked about Tama-chan’s rumor, he didn’t seems to be that type of men. ;O; But whatever, after all he’s an adult, right ? x)


  2. Thank you for this digest Miku-chan! I’ve been waiting for you to write a rumor!

    Anyway, I love Yamapi and Masami together so I hope that even for a guesting, she’ll really appear even in one or two episodes. Yes, I’m that desperate to see the two together again!

    About Kimura’s drama, I think it’s true, it’s highly possible since it’s impossible for Kimura not to do a drama each year. Why are they so concern about the heroine anyway?

    About Ebisu, I guess it’s not just them, but because J’J is getting known in Japan and it’s really quite an interesting show and the place they went is also as interesting.

    Lastly, about Tama-chan, trying to pull-off a Kitayama x Meisa or Ryo x whoever!, huh?


  3. Thanks for the translations. Tama doesn’t seem the type, but you never know.

    I hope the Kimura rumour is true, something in the fashion of Karei Naru Ichizoku would be awesome.

    As for J’J ratings, it’s not a rumour but tabloids also aren’t telling the whole story on purpose lol. Yamapi and Kitayama’s trips were before the slot became known for the show and they didn’t always air the show from 1:30-2 back then … their fans also did a lot of work to get it broadcasted in different parts of Japan. If the response to those two hadn’t been good, NTV wouldn’t have continued the series for a year.


Got anything to say?
