Summer is here! I can feel the heat and I’m in need of new sunnies everyday. XD. Anyway, here are some bits and pieces of hot and not so hot news from Johnny’s land. Involved parties, are: Ikuta Toma, Yamada Ryosuke, Yokoyama Yu, Matsumoto Jun, BUSAIKU, Ueda Tatsuya, and Okada Junichi.
- Save the date! Nov 7th will be the day we’ll get to see the awesomeness of Ikuta Toma and Hey!Say!JUMP‘s Yamada Ryosuke for their movie, “Grasshopper“. Trailer is not yet out but click here for the movie’s synopsis.
- Kanjani8‘s Yokoyama Yu will be starring in a stage play, titled: “Blue Moon“, which will start this April. “Blue Moon” is a romantic comedy that goes beyond time and space. This is Yokoyama’s first stage play after 9 years.
- White day is almost here (in Japan) and as girls eagerly awaits for their “return gifts” from guys, Only★Star surveyed their readers who they want to received a “white day’s gift”. Based from 300 readers, taking the top spot is Arashi‘s Matsumoto Jun, and the rest of ranking can be found, HERE.
- Some fans of BUSAIKU! got involved in a stampede when the group appeared in the live broadcast of PON! 3 people were lightly bruised when a part of the stage have collapsed. BUSAIKU is not yet in the studio when the accident happened and NTV have issued an apology. I know it’s hard but BE CALM.
- KAT-TUN‘s Ueda Tatsuya is out to challenge the extreme by taking part in TBS’s “Zen sekai kyokugen survival“. Ueda will challenge his survival skills by spending 100 hours in the Arctic circle where temperature drops to -50 degrees Celsius and is known to be polar bears territory.
- Fresh from his Japan Academy win, V6‘s Okada Junichi will return as Hirakata’s Park “Big Brother” as he successfully helped the park to reached last year’s goal of 1 million visitors. The Osaka-based park was visited by 1,047,246 people last year and even though the said quota is not this year’s goal, this year will be a “Thank You Year” and Okada is still out to reform the park.
That’s all for now, stay hydrated this summer! I’m leaving you with a badass “KISS KISS KISS” gif from KAT-TUN.
