Arashi to make appearance on “Johnny’s Countdown 2010-2011″ via broadcast

As many of you already know, Arashi will be one of the hosts for this year’s “Kohaku Uta Gassen“, which will be broadcasted live on New Year’s Eve from 7:00 PM- 11:45 PM. But that’s not the only event the night has in store for Japan’s most popular male group – Arashi is also confirmed to be attending the “Johnny’s Countdown 2010-2011“, which will also be partially broadcasted live on Fuji Television.

“Johnny’s Countdown” is an annual countdown live held at the Tokyo Dome which features appearances from the many talents of Johnny’s Entertainment. As members of JE, Arashi has attended the event every year. In 2009, Arashi attended “Kohaku” for the first time, but were unable to stick around for the entire ceremony as they had to rush to the countdown live immediately after they concluded their performance.

As Arashi has confirmed their appearance again this year for both “Kohaku” and “Johnny’s Countdown”, they’ve decided that they’ll participate on “Johnny’s Countdown” via a relay broadcast.

Since the countdown broadcast starts at 11:45PM, the boys have worked out a cooperative agreement with NHK; as hosts of “Kohaku” this year, Arashi will be unable to leave early to attend the countdown live. Knowing that their attendance is a tradition valued by both members and the fans, NHK has agreed to help the boys out by allowing them to relay broadcast from one of their studio or venue locations.

Stay tuned to tokyohive for continued coverage on this exciting event!

B2ST’s Dongwoon clarifies on his ‘improper greeting’ to T-ara

B2ST’s Dong Woon posted an explanation in response to a flurry of criticisms, alleging that he had improperly greeted the T-ara members.

On the December 28th broadcast of MBC’s ‘Happy Day‘, footage of Dong Woon tilting his head to the T-ara members caused some T-ara fans to believe that he was being impolite. Some commented, “T-ara is still his senior, so isn’t he being too careless?” and “It looks like he’s ignoring them.”

On December 31st, Dong Woon responded to the criticisms via Twitter. He started, ”There were some talks due to my greeting.”

“What was caught on camera was a situation in which I had already greeted my seniors [T-ara], and because they were in the middle of filming, I just slightly bowed my head to greet them. Please don’t hate me too much.”

When fans showered him with worried comments and consolation, Dong Woon replied, “I believe there must always be a clarification for comments regarding manners and character. I think you guys know the reason. I don’t get hurt that easily, so don’t worry ^^“.

More accommodating fans teasingly welcomed this seemingly stiff and unfriendly interaction, as they commented, “The beautiful (?) relationship between male and female idols!” and “All relationships between male and female idol groups should be like this“.

It appears that the scandal barely colored the relations between B2ST and T-ara, as the two groups collaborated together for SBS’s “2010 Gayo Daejun” on December 29th.

AKB48’s Takahashi Minami reflects on “Kohaku”, then and now

NHK’s year-end show, “Kohaku Uta Gassen“, is almost here and the lineup for 2010 boasts a cast list of epic proportions, particularly for AKB48 member, Takahashi Minami.

“Rehearsal for us was like a scene from a disaster area“, grinned Takahashi. “The combined number of members, including cameos from SKE48 and NMB48, exceeded the total of 100!” This year, the AKB48 family has grown tremendously in size with the additions of the groups, SKE48 and NMB48.

AKB48 first performed on “Kohaku” back in 2007, though their fame hadn’t quite kicked off yet. The girls performed “Aitakatta“, but unfortunately, they received more attention on their parts as back-up dancers for Enka legend, Godai Natsuko.

“It was an honor to dance behind Godai Natsuko-san as she sang, but at the same time, we didn’t really get a chance to be seen, which was kind of regretful. We owe many thanks to everyone for cheering us on, and for allowing us to come back on stage. We’re going to do our best to show everyone a cool AKB48 this year.”

“Kohaku Uta Gassen” will air via live TV on December 31st from 7:30PM to 11:45PM.

CEO of Girl’s Story’s agency responds to harsh criticisms

Korea’s newest underage idol group, Girl’s Story, has drawn both criticisms and concerns on debuting at such a young age. Addressing the debate, the CEO of Girl’s Story’s agency stated, “Minors also have dreams and hope. We decided on making an idol group because we wanted to grow with them.”

During a phone interview with Sports Today on December 30th, Jang Hyun Ok of Ants Star Company expressed, “We did not produce Girl’s Story with the intention of earning money. We decided to produce them after seeing the members’ dreams and passions. If we ever hoped for money, we would’ve made a group out of trainees in their mid-teens or early 20s.”

He continued, “The most important thing in life is not money, but the dreams of children. I created Girl’s Story in the hope of making both the children’s dreams and my own come true. Many people around us may be worried and look at us in a harsh manner, but we will direct this group with a parent’s mind to create them into great celebrities.”

Girl’s Story released their debut single on December 28th, and have officially begun their promotional activities through cable TV channels.

Producers of SBS’s “Gayo Daejun” respond to criticisms of YG bias
SBS’s “Gayo Daejun” has come under fire for the amount of air time given to YG Entertainment artists.

Netizens have been arguing that the December 29th ceremony was biased towards YGE artists, which was supposedly reflected in the amount of air time they received.

Details from the actual broadcast show that GD&TOP and Se7en’s collaboration stage received 12 minutes, while 2NE1 and Kim Gun Mo’s performance received 18 minutes and 22 seconds. In comparison, 2PM and Park Jin Young received nine minutes and 31 seconds, BoA received seven minutes, and SNSD received six minutes.

Regarding the controversy, producers of SBS’s “Gayo Daejun” spoke with Newsen on December 30th and revealed, “The amount of air time they received was already decided before the live broadcast. 2PM’s stage or GD&TOP/Se7en’s stage were all balanced out with everything else.”

They continued, “We believe that the long length of 2NE1 and Kim Gun Mo’s performance is what’s causing these accusations of bias. What people need to know is that 2NE1 only sang two of their own songs. Seeing as how ‘It Hurts‘ is a slow song, the actual length of the song must have physically felt longer. Kim Gun Mo was also the highest senior present at the show, so his stage was a lot bigger in comparison. He asked us to match it up to our time divisions, but to the viewers, we believe that it could have been misinterpreted. Regardless, we were not biased towards YG artists.”

Mizushima Hiro’s “KAGEROU” reaches a circulation figure of 1 million!

On December 28th, Poplar Publishing announced that Mizushima Hiro’s debut novel, “KAGEROU“, had reached a circulation figure of 1 million! Published under Mizushima’s real name, Saito Tomohiro, it took the book only two weeks to reach that astonishing figure, since the book was officially released on the 15th.

The hype is due in part to Mizushima winning the prestigious “Poplar Publishing Grand Prize for Fiction” award back in October. The combination of his fame and the author’s receivership of the award generated an interest so high that when the book was released, the publishers decided to print 430,000 copies – an astounding figure that’s incredibly rare for a new writer’s debut novel.

Considering the amount sold, how much has Mizushima earned from “KAGEROU”?

Since each book costs ¥1,400 (approximately $17 USD), and it’s already achieved a gross sales mark of ¥1,400,000,000, Mizushima will have earned¥140,000,000 ($1,700,174 USD) with his 10% writer’s royalty fees.

Congratulations, Mizushima!

Did Sawajiri Erika reconcile with her husband?

Actress Sawajiri Erika (24) and her husband, “Hyper-creator” Takashiro Tsuyoshi (46), seemed to have rekindled their romance, despite signs that the couple was nearing a divorce. On December 28th, it was revealed that the couple was living together in Barcelona, Spain.

Reporters confirmed through TV program, “Jouhou Live – Miyane-ya“, that they had seen Sawajiri at her apartment in Barcelona before and after Christmas. They also caught Takashiro when he tried to leave the apartment. He remained silent when questioned about reconciliation, but on the following day he smiled and assured that “She most certainly won’t come out today.” The statement heavily implies that the two are indeed living together.

Rumors about their divorce came up in April. During an interview in August, Sawajiri called Takashiro her “former husband“, while describing her marriage life as “like a nightmare“. Beginning in autumn however, it seems as if they’ve managed to reconcile with one another and move on with their marriage.
