Two more down, three more to go

A case of the influenza A strain is certainly making its way through Johnny’s boys.

Kanjani∞ members Yuu Yokoyama and Tadayoshi Ohkura are down for the count, making this four of the seven boys down.

No need for details, I’m sure you don’t really care that Ohkura has a 38.2°C temperature, or that Yokoyama has a 38°C temperature.

It looks like that virus has it in for Johnny’s boys. Who will be next? Will the members of NEWS or perhaps KAT-TUN, be the next target? One could only hope (just kidding).

70) Seungri aka VI (Big Bang)

So do you agree??

Apparently a majority of older women answered this pole. With that said, some of them should feel like pedo’s with some of those choices (i.e. Yamada Ryosuke). And how hyde lost to Jaejoong I will never understand, hyde is by far the better looking one, although I’m also prone to say that TOP looks better than all of them, but that’s a personal opinion and not based on physical looks alone. How Hotaka beat out any of the Big Bang, DBSK, GLAY members is beyond my me too. Well it goes to show that Japanese women there have odd taste. At least some they got it right with INORAN, you can never go wrong with him, although he should have been number one, he totally beats out Hotaka.

I do give props to DBSK and Arashi for having most if not all, it’s members in this ranking.

KARA in Thailand

kara

On 2ch, someone posted some links of KARA‘s rehearsal and live in Thailand. Along with a video of SHINee in Thailand as well. They arrived on 9/16 for the Thai-Korea concert. KARA, SHINee, and Ryan represented Korea for this friendly gathering. To represent Thailand, Golf&Mike also performed. If you don’t know Golf&Mike, they are part of Johnny’s in Japan. They had a side unit with NEWSYamapi to form the group GYM.

Don’t forget that KARA is also going to make their debut in Japan soon too.

[UPDATE] Yamapi is off the market…

yamapiseira

For now…

Talking about love lives, its out in the open that NEWS’ member Yamashita Tomohisa has been dating model Seira Kagami for three months.

This un-inviting news to Yamapi fans was discovered on 9/15. The girlfriend, Seira Kagami (22) is half Canadian (father) and half Japanese (mother). They’ve been dating for about three months.

Neither of them have ever worked together but met earlier this year through a mutual friend. According to some people they’ve been dating since the beginning of summer.

Yamapi attended one of Kagami‘s lives in July. Even though he did not stand out too much, people saw the both of the happy together. Kagami apparently also tells some of her most trusted staff members some of their happy times.

Well since the guys’ contracts for not having girlfriend’s is probably lifted, and their fans are older now, it’s good to see news like this out in the open. That or it makes for really great publicity on both their parts, which would explain why JE hasn’t done anything about it yet.

2009.9.17

Photo’s from Friday magazine showing “Yamapi” and “Seira”. I say in quotes, because the photo’s are not very clear.

Oh Jin, you remind me of my old friend…

That looked exactly how you do in that photo below when he’s wasted and high off his arse.

Remember when Jin was banished to L.A. oh so few years ago? Then this photo and this photo showed up. Well low and behold, new one’s have surfaced, and you know what, we are so happy about it. Why? Because for the longest time, we were beginning to think K-Pop was the only industry that had interesting gossip stories.

“The string of “drug scandals” from Oshio Manabu and Sakai Noriko are still dragging on in the entertainment industry. We’ve all seen the Cyber Nori-P ‘tweaking DJ play” video and there are stories of clubs and outside raves being shown as hotbeds of drugs, but now some old pictures of KAT-TUN’s Akanishi Jin have surfaced again and are causing a stir.

“The pictures were taken about a year ago, I guess. Before, some pictures of Akanishi being crazy at a club leaked from Facebook, and they seemed to have leaked the same way this time too. Looking back, there’s no Johnny’s talent that’s had this many private pictures leaked of them. You can sure see how he’s surrounded by some ‘great friends’ ha.” (magazine staff)

The pictures of him with singer BENI, who he was rumored to have dated at one point, and another with him real close with another half-Japanese girl have made him into someone who shocks his fans. But more than that, what’s crazy is his face.

“His eyes look blank and he looks pale; he looks real busted. Totally wasted… but with this timing, all I can think of is drugs.” (same magazine staff)

But whether Akanishi himself knows that the pictures have leaked, it’s amazing how he hasn’t changed a thing about his lifestyle.

“In August, KAT-TUN went all around for their summer concerts, but during that time Akanishi would still haunt the clubs as usual. One time, there was a day he was late for rehearsal and the word amongst concerned fans was ‘Maybe… he’s being investigated??’ haha. In the end, it seems he just went out all night the day before and it was just a result of oversleeping. Much ado about nothing, right?” (fan)

In this crazy lifestyle, at once point “best friends” Yama-P and actor Shirota Yuu have now turned on him, and now he spends his time with former tennis player Miyao (who was arrested for drugs last year) and former NEWS member Kusano.

“Even during this tour, there were days when he was super happy, like shouting ‘dickkkk’ during his MCs over and over again, but then also days where he was all sulky and wouldn’t take off his sunglasses or come out for encores. He seemed a bit unstable, mentally. He’s always been one to vent his emotions, but he’s not a kid anymore so I’d like him to get some professionalism and get serious about work.” (same fan)

“Bandage,” which stars Akanishi, opens 1/16/10, so he’ll soon start promotion for it. Maybe he should look into showing some restraint regarding his “club activities” before more weird stories come out?”

Thank you whoever on facebook for posting these and making us love Jyani’s again. Because really, we were getting really tired of all the netizens anti’s in K-Pop.

Pi and Ryo confined to their homes

ryo yamapi

Adding to the list of growing celebrities, Tomohisa Yamasita and Ryo Nishikido of NEWS, have both been diagnosed with the H1N1 virus. Johnny’s Entertainment sent out a fax on 8/31 stating that first Ryo had contracted the virus, and then today, Yamapi has contracted the virus. Both members have been confined in their homes until they recover.

Ryo who is currently filming a drama, “Orthros no inu”, will no longer be able to take part in the filming.  He still has un-filmed scenes for the 7th episode, with that being said, the production is looking for other alternatives and will decide what to do upon his condition.

Last month was the first month Japan has seen death by the swine flu. We stated earlier that 6 members of AKB48 had been diagnosed with the H1N1 strain as well, also Maximum the Hormone’s vocal, Ryo.

We hope they all recover, because we all know that if something happens to Pi and Ryo, well let’s just say, we all thought cassies are scary, you guys haven’t met Johnny’s fangirls.
