Johnny’s who Seems Smart Ranking

In the tradition of useless and weird ranking in the Japanese entertainment world, here is another ranking based on Johnny’s intelligence. 200 people (100 men and 100 women) in their 20-30 yrs old were surveyed on who among the Johnny’s talents they think has BRAINS.

Leading the pack is pretty obvious, Arashi’s Sakurai Sho, Keio graduate and respected newscaster. The rest of Johnny’s who made the Top 10 ranking, are:

2) Nakai Masahiro (SMAP)

3) Inohara Yoshihiko (V6)


4) Okada Junichi (V6)

5) Kimura Takuya (SMAP)

6) Kokubun Taichi (TOKIO)

7) Joshima Shigeru (TOKIO)

8) Matsuoka Masahiro (TOKIO)

9) Ikuta Toma


10) Murakami Shingo (Kanjani8)

This ranking makes me think that of the saying “wisdom comes with age” because those who made the ranking are already in their 30s-40s. Does this mean that the younger ones aren’t viewed as smart as their senpais? Come to think of, Johnny’s who enter college are fewer than their senpais. Anyway, Inocchi and Kokubun have background in being news moderators so they are viewed as smart and articulate when  they expressed their opinions about different matters during their news programs. Nakai is also viewed as smart because he has chaired different variety shows and he seem always interesting to watch. NEWS’s Koyama Keiichiro, who is also NEWS EVERY’s newscaster, also made this ranking in the 13th place.

Those who aren’t doing into news, Okada is seen smart just by his impressive wit and remarks. Kimura seem smart because of the various TV roles he played, he’s seen as dexterous for being able to portray different roles. People think that Ikuta is smart because of the way he converses, and Matsuoka has an “intelligent face”. Frankly, these seem face value. haha.

Last but not the least, TOKIO’s leader is deem smart because of his different expertise in Astro DASH! and Shingo’s way of talking is considered “witty” by the voters.

    • well the ranking is basically on what the voters “think” that looks smart so irregardless of their educational background, it’s more on how they appear of TV.


  1. Hina is indeed witty( and very smart when it comes to money ) and sometimes many ppl dont associate him with johnnys bcos of this lol there are lots of ppl who are surprised to know he’s an idol & part of K8 xDD

    Aside from that im surprised at least one of my bakas made into the top10 haha


  2. Conclusion: TOKIO is the smartest group? Haha. Though in terms of percentage of university graduates, NEWS should win that title.

    Happy for Inocchi – he’s a high school dropout who only eventually graduated high school when he was like 30. Yet when you listen to him on Asaichi he often gives very insightful comments or looks at things from an angle you’d least expect from an “idol” and high school dropout.

    Okada though… He’s actually quite the airhead if you watch him enough XD


    • I guess Astro DASH changed a lot people’s perception on TOKIO, they are not just Johnny’s, they can also do bunch of helpful stuff. As for Inocchi, he was a drop-out but I guess its more bc he was busy for work, too lazy to study, but not really dumb or so


Got anything to say?
