Rumor Round-Up (Digest 019)

I’ve mentioned this from most of my blog posts but I’m really busy lately so this rumor digest that I find interesting may go a few weeks back. Well, there’s no “big” rumor yet in Johnny’s land so these rumors might still be considered fresh. Involved parties are some of Johnny’s ikemens! They are Junnosuke Taguchi, Kamenashi Kazuya, and Nakajima Yuto.

  • Junno Taguchi and Komine Rena have adopted a dog

From dating to cohabitating, KAT-TUN‘s Junnosuke Taguchi and Komine Rena remained tight-lip on their relationship. Rumor has it that the 8-years couple have decided to get a dog! The said dog is “Border Collie”, an English breed known for their high intelligence. The dog also proves to be costly since the couple decided to get a pet insurance for their pet amounting to 40,000 Yen.

40,000 Yen seems loose change for someone like Junno.  XD

  • Kamenashi Kazuya is also a fan of “Lokai bracelets”?

KAT-TUN‘s Kamenashi Kazuya is known for being one of the Johnny’s seniors that younger Johnny’s love to imitate mostly because of his fashion sense. Well, the juniors have another thing to imitate as Kamenashi follows Hollywood trend with “Lokai bracelet“. The said bracelet is made from elements from the lowest and highest point of earth. Basically, the bracelet gives “balance” to the one wearing it.

If you’re interested, check-out where a portion of each sold bracelets goes to charity. It looks cute  but $18 seems a bit too much just for a bit of mud and water. 


  • After a successful supporting role from TV drama, Nakajima Yuto takes big leap for his first movie, “Pink to Gray”

Hey!Say!JUMP‘s Nakajima Yuto played as a salaryman in the drama, “Date~ Koi to wa Donna Mono Kashira~“, as well as Hasegawa Hiroki‘s love rival. The 21 yr old Nakajima was concerned that he might too young for the role but he did well that other’s are commenting on how he’s a respectable actor even though he’s a Johnny. That comment irks me. Anyway, Nakajima is set to star in next year’s movie, “Pink to Gray“, which is written by his agency’s senpai, NEWS‘s Shigeaki Kato. Casting rumors circulated that audition results have been determined long before the main casting was announced. With this rumor still ripe, it’s up to Nakajima to show an enthusiastic performance to blow-away those allegations.

Yuto doesn’t have to “blow” any allegations because it’s  no-brainer that the movie will star a Johnny in a lead role. After all, Shige is the book’s author so it’s only natural that the agency will lend a hand in producing a movie and have the first choice on who gets to be the lead. It may sound unfair but sometimes it’s not just talent that can take you the top but also by being in the right agency.

One thought on “Rumor Round-Up (Digest 019)

  1. I have seen it many times but just know the bracelet’s name now, so it’s called “Lokai bracelet”.
    neither aware it’s the recent Hollywood trend XD. I first recognized it because KinKi Kids’ Domoto Tsuyoshi used to wear in the past, along with another bracelet that also seems spiritual or energy related, so it’s “balance”, makes me wonder what’s the purpose of the another bracelet.


Got anything to say?
