We’ve all heard rumors about Kamenashi Kazuya’s hobby in cross-dressing, but there are also other Johnny’s who share the same hobby as Kame.
“It’s Kanjani8’s Yokoyama Yu. He dresses up as a woman a lot for the Kanjani8 show, Kanjani no Shiawake. And those experiences ignited something deep within him and he started experimenting. He tried to hide it at first but he met Kame at a press conference once and said right out that he wanted to try wearing a skirt. And people have said that he has dressed up as a woman in public before.” Said a production insider.
Yoko might like wearing women’s clothing, but like Kame, he isn’t doing it because he enjoys the male attention.
“He just thinks that it’s important to polish his womanly fashion sense, doing so will allow him to be more creative in creating his roles.” Said a television writer.
Rumor has it that Kame and Yoko have tried establishing a cross-dressing club together within Johnny’s. There were at least 20 Jrs. who showed interest in joining, which shocked the both of them. Additionally, between members of this club, they call it “J-Kai.”
“It’s the combination of Johnny’s J and cross-dressing’s (josou) J. The two of them even talked about doing a collaboration for the fashion show XX’s Girls Collection.”
Recently, there is word that cross-dressing has piqued Aiba Masaki’s interest because of his co-star Matsuko Delux in Mikeneko no Holmes. Perhaps this signals the beginning of a cross-dressing boom within the entertainment industry?
I can think of a few other kids who could join the club
