Being a group of kansai people, they’ve used their interesting and familiar characters as weapon to become a unique idol group. Particularly, they’ve mobilized a total of 880,000 people to their events and tours to commemorate their 8th anniversary. Making all their releases, both album and singles from this year, top Oricon charts.

TOKIO appeared on Kouhaku every year and still managed to go to JCD, so I don't see how it will be a problem with K8...besides, it's not like they have a concert in Osaka that night...
