Hey everyone! We have an older FAM video here for your enjoyment. I lost the flash drive with some of the video on it and just recently finished editing it up for you guys. This time our video is about Johnny’s Entertainment, a J-pop company that produces boy bands and the FAM doesn’t like how Mr. Johnny Kitagawa keeps his boys to himself. This rant took place around the time Yatterman was released so hope you guys enjoy! More »

Happy holidays everyone! Hope you’re enjoying the final days of 2008. I’m still waiting for winter to be over and someone to invent a time machine.
It’s been awhile since I’ve done a regular Weekly Round Up. Been so busy this past month, I’m surprised I still have time to blog!
Anyways, here’s your wrap up. Enjoy! More »
One of the biggest entertainment companies in Japan, Johnny’s Jimusho is expanding their company to Korea. In the past few years there have been countless numbers of boy bands and groups coming from both Korea and Japan. Way too many, but apparently we need more! That’s why Johnny’s has decided to expand into Korea.
Popular Japanese groups such as ARASHI, KAT-TUN, and NewS have huge followings in Korea. ARASHI even has around 200,000 fans in Korea alone, and the numbers are quickly growing. Because of this, Johnny’s has announced that they will soon enter the Korean market.
They need to stop. Korea only has a few decent boy bands, like DBSK, Big Bang, and SHINee. Japan has… hardly any, except for ARASHI.
Just like many teenage girls, I like to put posters of some of my idols on my wall. My dresser in particular has a few pictures of Gackt in some SMEXy poses. However, I constantly get asked the question “Jess, why do you have pictures of this girl by your mirror?” by any one who visits my room. Whether they know my love for Asian Media or not, I calmly correct them and say ” No… that’s a man” and a bit of my dignity dies inside. Most of my family and friends will argue that Gackt is indeed a women or just really gay, others just give me a funny look. This routine is nothing new to me now but, before when I first started to show an interest in music artist and drama stars besides the ones directly related to anime, it was indeed a bit confusing for me as well.
