Five Johnny's Talents Called-In for a Private Dinner



Julie Keiko Fujishima, President of J-Storm and niece of Johnny's and Associates President-Johnny Kitagawa, hosted a private dinner for five of Johnny's talents, Weekly Bunshun and Johnnys-Watcher reported.

The attendants are Kanjani8's Ryo Nishikido and Ryuhei Maruyama, Arashi's Satoshi Ohno and Masaki Aiba, and KAT-TUN's Junno Taguchi.


Julie Fujishima also invited over 20 members of press from TV and women's magazine in a dinner held at a Chinese restaurant in Azabu Juban district. According to the article, the center of the discussion was unclear but the invitees are five of Johnny's talents who will be having a drama this April. Nishikido with "Papa wo Idol", Ohno with "Locked Room", Aiba with "Miki-neko Holmes no Suiri", Junno with "Legal High", and Maruyama just finished his starring role in "O-Parts" and was also casted in "Strawberry Nights".

Press attendees said that the dinner has been very luxurious, Satoshi Ohno served wine while Nishikido Ryo was even asked to speak to one of magazine editor's daughter on phone because the daughter is a huge fan. During the dinner, TOKIO's Nagase Tomoya and Yamaguchi Tatsuya also appeared, the two are rumored to be Julie's allies in the so-called "Julie Faction".

Entertainment insiders said that a similar dinner also happened November last year. Although this might looked like a simple dinner to promote activities of these Johnny's talents but insiders are claiming that this is Julie Fujishima's way of flaunting her power and influence that she's ready to take-on Johnny's Entertainment once Johnny Kitagawa leaves.

You don't know? Conspiracy theory-wise, J&A is the Area 51 of Japan!

I do know a little about conspiracy theories and have searched about it before ^_^

I guess I'm just curious to know if JE is somehow related to Illuminati or not because K-pop already is and some of J-pop artists are kinda showing they're related.

I guess it started when Shinee released 'Lucifer' and most recent is Big Bang's Fantastic Baby.

J-pop.. I'm not really sure.. Koda Kumi or Hamasaki Ayumi. But maybe I'm wrong.

"J&A = conspiracy theories" is kind of a joke in many ways. The poster has explained to you why she used that comparison which is one side of it. Another side of it is that J&A is just full of so much crazy BS about how they manage their idols and keep so many things out of the media to the point where many are convinced J&A is actually controlling the media to a certain extent (it's already been said that TV media is frightened to report anything scandalous about Johnny's because their Johnny's stars might just be suddenly pulled from their TV station if they do.) J&A seems to be very quick to cover up or attend to things it doesn't like being said about its idols. And because J&A idols make so much and are everywhere, J&A gets away with it for the most part. It's been criticised for this and has earned itself many conspiracy theory jokes.

I guess we're just joking that J&A is so full of secrets, we wouldn't be surprised if they're hiding aliens or are a part of secret societies and government cover ups!

Actually I didn't get it at first but after I read it again I got what the poster meant (^_^;;)
But I've already replied so meh I leave it LOL

Thank you tho for the explanation :D

But as I said, I guess I'm REALLY curious to know if JE is related in any way to Illuminati/conspiracy theories XD
