Johnny’s Jimusho to produce a Chinese idol group

On May 3rd, it was reported that the entertainment company Johnny’s Jimusho will produce a Chinese idol group. The president of the company, Johnny Kitagawa announced the news and his plans to debut the new group in November at Hey! Say! JUMP’s stage play, ‘JOHNNY’S World‘, at the Empire Theater in Tokyo.

Kitagawa commented “I want to produce a local Chinese idol group, and I also want to hold an audition in China. I haven’t decided how many members will be in the group, but I’m thinking the members’ age range will be around junior high school age.”

Meanwhile, on this day, Hey! Say! JUMP kicked off their Asia tour at the Yokohama Arena. Fans from China, the U.S., and 13 other countries visited to attend the concert.

Stay tuned for more information!

wow. that's different. So he's thinking more global now...I didn't think it mattered since Japan's market is so big.

What is this lunatic trying to do?
Gain world-power one boyband at a time?
I like the idea per se, but come on! The guy has been over the top with producing groups in the last few years (I wanted to say months, but hey) and I personally think it's unfair to those groups who just debuted. The deserve to be the babies a little while longer and get a decent amount of attention.

And why can't Johnny start acknowledging foreign fans before he tries to debute a group in every single country on this earth?
(Hey, Marius is half-german. Why not debute a german group here too? .___.)

Ahahaha I laughed so hard at the thought of a german johnnys-group xDDD
But it's not possible, german boys aren't good-looking enough xD (well, the ones around me aren't :P xDD)

I won't believe it until it happens (like ABC-xyZ or Kis-my-ft2 Asia tour). The old man will change his mind in the next morning

Exo M barely did any musical promotion in China.

Didn't Up Front abandon them before they flopped properly.
yotsu_chan 4th-May-2012 01:00 am (UTC)
What about Bakaleya6?
You won't debut them as a group, Mr.Johnny-san?
come_on_hiroto 4th-May-2012 05:29 am (UTC)
I'll be really happy if Bakaleya6 debuted...
yoyokimono 4th-May-2012 01:01 am (UTC)
the first thing that came to mind... was poor those juniors who are currently in the Johnny company... they've worked hard but have yet to debut... and now Johnny is just gonna go to china and audition and create a group... that kinda sucks for the Japanese johnny trainees
