My birthday week is over and so sorry for the lack of updates in this blog. Well, I have to twerk some programs with my PC and work has gotten busier. So, here are the news and not-so news that I missed. Collated from Nov 10th to 15th. Involved parties are: Chinen Yuri, Kimura Takuya, Kamenashi Kazuya, Yamada Ryosuke, 4u, and Nakajima Kento.
- Actress Kimura Tae joins Hey!Say!JUMP‘s Chinen Yuri and Uchimura Teruyoshi in the movie “Kinmedaru otoko” (Gold medal man). The movie tells the story of Akita Izumi who is obsessed in getting the first prize. Chinen will play as the adolescent Akita in the movie.
- The nominees have been announced for the “40th Hochi Film Award” and three of them are from Johnny’s! They are SMAP‘s Kimura Takuya for “HERO“, KAT-TUN‘s Kamenashi Kazuya for “Joker Game“, and Hey!Say!JUMP‘s Yamada Ryosuke for “Ansatsu Kyoushitsu” and “Grasshopper“. Wow, double nominations for Yamada! How about Toma? During the 39th Hochi Film Awards, V6’s Okada Junichi took home the Best Actor trophy. Will it be another Johnny’s this year?
- Johnny’s Jr. Unit, “4U“, will be starring in the stage play “REPAIR“. I’m not yet sure about the plot but based from the introduction, it will be a story about 4 youths who are working in a car repair shop and have lost their sight on their goals…
- Prequel SP’s are becoming a trend in Johnny’s nowadays. After the success of “Kinkyori Renai~Season Zero”, Sexy Zone‘s Nakajima Kento‘s upcoming movie, “Kurosaki-kun“, will be getting two consecutive drama SPs December of this year. I’m not sure if people will be interested to see the movie after the drama SP because the movie’s trailer doesn’t leave much to be desired. If you feel like checking-out the trailer, click HERE.
That’s all for now! I have to finish recapping 5-ji before I take another hiatus. I’m leaving you with a post showing how much Nino have age over the years, if he ever age that is!
