One more article on Jin and his attitude after recent appearance on Shounen Club.
This incident occurred when Akanishi Jin recorded an episode for The Shounen Club, where Johnny’s groups like Hey Say Jump, Sexy Zone, A.B.C-Z and other juniors also performed.
During a talk corner with A.B.C-Z Fumito Kawai, Akanishi Jin pronounced A.B.C-Z’s “Z” as “Zetto”, and asked why “Kis-My-Ft2” has a “2” in their name. This angered fans of the 2 groups, who thought he should know better than to ask about the origins of his junior group’s name since he is their senior.
As Kis-My-Ft2 is a name which is made up of its members’ initials, they thought that Akanishi Jin should have guessed it since KAT-TUN was also made up of its members’ initials.
An insider revealed “The purpose of letting him go onto Shounen Club was to attract new fans, but the plan backfired. Iijima, who manages Akanshi Jin,should be having a headache now.”
There’s more to this but i’ve already posted a similar article previously. Below is the Shounen Club episode that this article is talking about…pls pardon the low quality.
