The puzzling thing about Johnny’s Jimusho not denying Kisumai Fujigaya Taisuke’s relationship

18 Jun

Johnny’s group Kis-My-Ft2 Fujigaya Taisuke(27) and Takimoto Miori(23)’s relationship has shocked fans and the showbiz world. However, what is puzzling is the reaction of Johnny’s agency to this piece of news.

As Fujigaya is a popular member of the group, fans have declared their exit from the fandom or intentions to switch idols after news of his relationship broke. The shock from this news was reinforced by the official statement from Johnny’s agency – “No comment on private matters.”

A TV station staff said “I’m abit shocked. This was not the sort of reply i was expecting.”

So far, the standard replies from Johnny’s agencies were always “they are friends” or “they were also with others”, in a bid to deny the existence of their talents being in relationships.

“Not commenting on private matters is the same as partially admitting to the relationship. Johnny’s fans think they are in a virtual relationship with their idols. That is why they are sensitive to such news and from their perspective, they can’t follow an idol especially when his agency is partially affirming news of him having a girlfriend,” says same staff.

“Traditionally, Johnny’s has not been strict with their idols being in relationships. In fact, if they find their partners befitting for their idols, they’d even encourage it, though they wouldn’t acknowledge it in public.This could be due to the factional dispute within Johnny’s”said showbiz insider.

This factional dispute is between Johnny’s management Julie Fujishima and SMAP’s manager Iijima, reported in the media early this year. Mary Kitagawa(VP and Julie Fujishima’s mother) had an interview with Bunshun then denying of such a dispute.

“No one thinks that the dispute is over.Kisumai is also part of Iijima’s management. There may be people who don’t believe it, from Iijima’s perspective, perhaps this response(to Fujigaya’s relationship) stemmed from the decision to refrain from being mainstream?” said same showbiz insider.

Kisumai Tamamori Yuta was also interested in Miori Takimoto?

The relationship news between Kis-My-Ft2 Fujigaya Taisuke and his costar Miori Takimoto from 2011 drama “Ikemen Desu Ne” has rocked the entertainment circle, sparking a huge discussion everywhere.

The 2 started dating 3.5 years ago, and Miori Takimoto has been spotted frequenting Fujigaya’s mansion, with the latest pictures published in Bunshun Shukan. However, it seems like Fujigaya’s fellow Kis-My-Ft2 member Tamamori Yuta was also smitten with Miori, having worked on the same drama years ago.

According to the drama, Tamamori was the one who ended as Miori’s lover. It reality, he actually liked her.

“Miori does not have the airs of an actress and is known for her civil manners. Tamamori fell for this side of her. People would think that they would date according to the drama script, but because Fujigaya wooed her aggressively, Miori chose him over Tamamori,” said insider.

Even though this might make things awkward for the 2 Kis-my-ft2 members, it did not turn out that way. Tamamori was sad for sometime, but it seems like there are no grudges between them.

Very lucky girl indeed. If Tamamori is the one dating then the internet will probably explode, judging by the viewership of my previous article. My stats have never seen such heights, not even Sousenkyo….

Rare that a Johnny’s relationship goes open like this.

Busaiku and SKE48 couple up for the sweetest dance routine on UTAGE Christmas Special

10 Dec

UTAGE! is a weekly music show hosted by SMAP’s Nakai and AKB48 Watanabe Mayu. Every week invited guests take turns to cover songs requested by the audience.

This week, SKE48 and Kis-My-Ft2 subunit Busaiku coupled up to backdance for Ninomiya Ai as she covers Mariah Carey’s “All I Want for Christmas Is You“.

As it was the first time for both idol units to be dancing with each other, their atmosphere behind the scenes was a curious point of discussion. Apparently, the members of Busaiku were shy and couldn’t look at the SKE48 members in their eyes. Jurina complained that Senga Kento was looking at her mouth, while Rena pointed out that Takashi Nikaido was fixated on Ryoha’s stomach. What did you think of their performance?

The choreographer behind this dance is Kaba-chan, the same person for HKT48’s single “Hikamae I Love You”.The choreography was certainly playful and cute, although there could have been more interactions or some skinship between the couples.

Talk part

T.M Revolution’s Nishikawa: “The girls’ costumes were very cute, but somehow it looked like they were dancing with their managers.

Kitagawa Ryoha was asked if Nikaido finally met her eyes. “It felt forced..”

Nakai: “Look at her..she’s going to cry. You don’t have to mind! If anything happens i will protect you!”

Matsui Rena also spills the beans on Miyata Toshiya. “During the rehearsal, he said he has a Christmas face. I wonder what that means.”

Miyata Toshiya: “My fans always tell me they’d feel happy if they look at my face.”

Nakai: “In the first place, these girls aren’t your fans!”
