Golf & Mike weren't under J&A right? I mean, J&A is just kind of managing their Japanese acts and stuff, in any. I heard they're doing quite alright at wherever they're from? :\

As far as I know, they were under a label managed by Golf & Mike's mom and JE. Then, when they debuted in Japan, JE took over their PR and management and whatever, and despite having a great album, they didn't even achieve the top 10 :\ They were super popular in Thailand, they even had fashion shops and such, but I haven't heard anything about them anymore.

I just thought they didn't want to enter the Japanese market already, probably satisfied with their Thai market/want to focus in Thailand that sort. Not familiar with them at all, only read on the net once or twice about them on the net :\ It's pretty hard for them to get onto Top 10 if they didn't had much exposure prior to their debut I guess. Can't really compare them with the cases of Korean acts because quite a few fans in Japan have heard/seen/known of these Kpop groups before they actually release singles/albums. tbh the whole of asia isn't v exposed to thai music. I've only heard of some (without knowing who sang them nor the song titles lol) 'cos I went to watch some thai movie in the cinema hahaha

Sad for them though, they seem pretty talented.
