Just recently, the relocation of Johnny 's head office was officially announced. By relocating to the SME Nogizaka building, it is expected that further leap of the office is expected. But, was there such an office that was lucky enough so far?
It is quite a rare existence to have the Johnny's office that shines forever in the vibrant entertainment world with ups and downs.
Originally, Johnny Kitagawa who established Johnny 's office came to Japan as an interpreter of the US Embassy in the 1950' s. And he taught baseball to boys. However, the boys' baseball seems to be rather poor, and Mr. Jany seems to have called the team "Hetters" etc, but one of the boys said, "Because Johnny is the director, it is not good for Johnny's, I heard that he gave an opinion. One day. First good luck comes. It starts with not being able to practice baseball because of rain.
Mr. Jany and the boys seem to have seen the "West Side Story" which was popular in the cinema.
The boys seemed to have received a lot of shock. And, Mr. Jany also had a longing for performing arts in the United States. Then, in 1962, the first group "Johnny's" was born. Incidentally, Teruhiko Aoi who was one member of this "Johnny's" was.
However, Johnny's at this time was not such a glamorous success like now. At first, it was not a big success, such as making a back with a program "Let's meet in a dream", but at that time it was very unusual for idol who can sing and dance.
And good luck continues. In 1972, Hiromi Township will debut. Many women were fascinated by their cute looks too much. However, Hiroshi Township has left the office in 1975 which is three years later.
Originally it is normal to be discontinued here, but it is truly Johnny's. Good luck came again. It is that Mr. Masahiko Kondo and a star called Shonen troop appeared one after another. It was thought that the popularity will continue for a while as it is, but finally the appearance of the light GENJI finally entered a little stagnation period after this. The era has become an era when only idols, such as bands and singer-songwriters, are active. However, at such Johnny's office, a group bringing just a fortunate wind was born. so. It is SMAP. Their existence was completely different from the idol they had. Boldly challenged the field of comedy that would never do if idle, he was active in drama and movies. Currently idols are engaged in variety and coverage because this SMAP was active. They led the Johnny's office to a new way.
I think that many people have fallen into tears and caused various behaviors in the dissolution of their nationally idle people is still remembered.
And various groups such as Arashi and TOKIO will also make Johnny 's office bigger, and the power of the young group such as HeySayJUMP and NEWS can be imagined. King and Prince, whose debut was decided recently, is also expected to be active.
But what if the team name did not become Johnny's? What if it did not rain that day? Why not go see a movie? There is no Johnny's office now. Do you think that there are talented young people getting gathered so that they are so lucky to be so lucky and attracted to their fortune?
And we may be lucky enough to be able to spend the same time with them.
