NTV outlines behavior rules for AKB48, Johnny's Jr cast of TV drama


Members of AKB48 and Johnnys Jr will have to be on their best behavior when they film an NTV drama. The network has laid down the law on their behavior while they are filming “Shiritsu Bakareya Koko” (Private High School), which will be broadcast from April 14 each week at 12:50 a.m.

Johnny’s Jr is the “youthful” division of male singers at Johnny’s Jimusho. They usually include any artist who hasn’t released a CD yet. In the drama, they play delinquent students, while the AKB48 girls play spoiled rich girls.

Shintaro Morimoto, 14, who plays the leader of the bad boys, said: “I argued at school sometimes, but I never got into fights.”

To make sure there is no hanky-panky between the two groups, for whom a squeaky clean image is mandatory, NTV said it has three rules.

1. Romantic relationships between any members of the two sides are prohibited.
2. Giving each other mobile phone numbers and e-mail addresses is prohibited.
3. All cast members must go to bed (alone) early and get up early.

Morimoto said he’ll do his best with rule No. 3 but was evasive about Nos. 1 and 2.

AKB48 singer Haruka Shimazaki, 17, said: “A ban on relationships is normal anyway for AKB48, so it shouldn’t be a problem.”

The drama is the brainchild of AKB48 creator Yasushi Akimoto.

*siiiiiiiiiiighs*
I'm honestly getting more and more angry at this bullshit squeaky clean image that these teenagers (and adults, in light of recent events) have to keep in order to keep their job.

"challenge accepted"

This is very strange. According to the article about this on TokyoGraph, which is quoting the website, these "rules" are not actually for the JE and AKB idols. These are the rules of the fictional school in the drama that the students are supposed to follow. Who did a bad translation here (or who flat out lied?)?

I guess NTV won't get in trouble with the two agencies.
If the channel gains their confidence they will be able to do other drama
minam_shi 2nd-Mar-2012 01:41 am (UTC)
I totaly agree with this rules.
These Juniors have probably girlsfriends from their school or their town but it's always a shock to know that an idol is dating another idol.
I prefer keep in my mind that they won't date each other, even if they actually may will :3

Plus aren't the girls a bit older ?

WHAT? Are you being sarcastic, right?
tsumi_riina717 2nd-Mar-2012 02:19 am (UTC)
one girl is 16 while the others are 18, 19, and 20...

lol they are older than that one guy that is 18 years old....well at least he is kind of in their age range..
