and from other sources, first episode will be titled: Zettai ni Maneshi takunaru Okite SP
KAT-TUN will host a new variety show on NTV, their first since “Cartoon KAT-TUN” ended in March 2010. The new show is tentatively titled “KAT-TUN no Zettai Manetaku Naru TV” and will have the members of KAT-TUN presenting people “you will want to imitate” and various goods, aiming to create new trends.
It seems that the members will be in charge of different areas based on their interests. For example, Kamenashi Kazuya will cover food and sports-related topics, Tanaka Koki will deal with music and recent hot spots, and Nakamaru Yuichi will handle new products and daily living.
Three guests on the show will determine which members presented something that “you would not want to imitate,” and those members will have to participate in a penalty game, possibly drawing on other recent trends.
Taguchi Junnosuke commented, “Our concerts got postponed this year, and the five of us weren’t able to release an album, so I’m very happy that we are able to work together on something.” KAT-TUN has been a five-member group since last July, when Akanishi Jin officially left to pursue a solo career.
“KAT-TUN no Zettai Manetaku Naru TV” will air on Tuesday nights from 11:58pm to 12:29am, starting on October 18.
KAT-TUN’s first variety show in 18 months
KAT-TUN will try out the latest things that are in, and depending on how well they perform, might have to endure some punishments in their new TV show, it was revealed on September 8, reports Asahi Shimbun.
Nihon TV’s new show “KAT-TUNの絶対マネたくなるTV” starts on October 18, and will centre on the KAT-TUN members as they try out things that in fashion along with a guest. There are also entertaining punishment games being planned.
It has been reported TV producers have said they wanted KAT-TUN to lead the show because they were pop stars making history, and it would be perfect to have them introducing things that would be the next big trend.
This will be the first TV show the group has had since 2010.
Currently, it has been reported the group is being briefed on how the show will run, and there are plans for on-location shoots.
“This is our first variety show as a group in a long time. I hope we can make a show where people can have fun watching us have fun, and find out things about us that people never knew existed,” Kazuya Kamenashi said.
“It’s our first show in a while, I want to put even more effort into this and make it a place where popular things begin. I want to make it a show that’ll stay in people’s minds rather than break records,” Koki Tanaka said.
