My first Rumor Digest for 2015 where rumor and facts collide! Involved parties, are: a lot of Johnny’s who graduated or still studying in college, Kimura Takuya, Yamapi, and Nakai Masahiro.
- Education is becoming essential in Johnny’s
Now that Kanjani8‘s Yokoyama Yu and Okura Tadayoshi passed their High School Certification exam, having higher education is becoming more essential in Johnny’s. Well, Johnny’s poster boy for higher education, Arashi‘s Sakurai Sho, is a Keio University graduate and is now a newscaster for NEWS ZERO. Not far behind, NEWS‘ Koyama Keiichiro and Shigeaki Kato graduated at Meiji University and Aoyama Gakuin School of Law, respectively. Former NEWS’ Yamashita Tomohisa also graduated at Meiji University. Then there’s KAT-TUN‘s Nakamaru Yuichi who graduated from Waseda University even though he started college at 21 yrs old. Well, the younger ones are also doing college starting with Hey!Say!JUMP‘s Okamoto Keito in Sophia University, Kota Yabu in Waseda (using correspondence system like Nakamaru), Sexy Zone‘s Nakajima Kento at Meiji Gakuin University, and Kikuchi Fuma at Keio University. The latest Johnny who graduated from a university is Hey!Say!JUMP’s Inoo Kei who graduated at Meiji University with a degree in architecture. The increase in higher education enrollment in Johnny’s serves as a back-up for them since debuting is not always a guarantee that they can break into the real world.
Eduation is always essential, duh! COllege is a big deal and I’m happy that younger Johnny’s are in college.
- New Year meeting with famous friends
Actress Shibasaki Kou is rumored to be in a relationship with retired football player, Nakata Hidetoshi. The couple are said to be dating since November and mid-January, the two were seen again in a party/meeting by a famous photographer with SMAP‘s Kimura Takuya and his wife, Kudo Shizuka. Kimura have been friends with Shibasaki since they’ve worked together in his past dramas. The picture from Weekly Seven garnered comments about the Kimura’s that their marriage seem to be doing well.
Nakata still looks hot btw. Anyway, I’m sure that the Kimura x Kudo haters are irk now since they seem to be doing really well.
- Hostesses round-table discussion
Three hostesses, A (no.1 in Roppongi), B (Kabukicho hostess), and C (Yokohama hostess), talks about their rich and famous customers that includes Yamapi and SMAP‘s Nakai Masahiro. Hostess B said that Yamapi came over one night, and even sang a duet of “Shuji to Akira” with her. She also added that Yamapi looks cold on TV but he’s actually a nice young person. Hostess C talked about when SMAP’s Nakai Masahiro came in wearing a hat, no one really recognized him. Until he takes off his hat and “He’s Nakai of SMAP!”; he’s really interesting to chat with.
I can picture Yamapi still going to hostess clubs but Nakai should opt in going for omiai instead. 😄
