My Dear Readers….
Just over a year ago, I took a chance on a lovely little series called “My Love Mix-Up!” (Kieta Hatsukoi).
Until that moment, I had never heard the names Meguro Ren, Michieda Shunsuke, or even Johnny’s. But like Alice, I’ve since stepped through the looking glass into a bright and dazzling world filled with music, wonder, and truly talented young men.
While I’ve become very familiar with groups like Snow Man, Naniwa Danshi, and Travis Japan, there are still a plethora of other groups within the wonderland that is Johnny & Associates who also deserve to break the surface of international recognition.
In addition to the music, movies, and television series, Johnny & Associates offers so much amazing online content; subtitled by fans for fans (often even legally!) so that everyone around the world can get to know these hard-working guys.
As someone who is still new to this, I wanted to invite you along for the ride with a weekly round-up of videos from Johnny’s artists you may or may not be that familiar with. So let’s take a journey around the world with Johnny & Associates’ YouTube library!
Here are my top 5 videos for this week.
5.) Snow Man (中文字幕)「D.D.」多視角影像鑑賞會
This Chinese subtitled version of Snow Man’s commentary on (and appreciation for) their debut song “D.D.” and its multi-angle music video.
4.) Jyanino Channel- [ نادر للغاية؟؟ ] اليوم الذي كان فيه كيكوتشي فوما شخصا صعبا (مع ترجمة باللغة العربية)
Ninomiya Kazunari and the Jyanino team members play bingo with words describing Kikuchi Fuma, a game in which he did not fare too well. With Arabic Subtitles!
3.) SixTONES (w/English Subtitles!) This is legit! – We got hypnotized!!
In this hysterical English-subtitled video, SixTONES (one of my more recent discoveries) gets professionally hypnotized.
2.) Naniwa Danshi (พร้อมคำบรรยายไทย) 【ชีวิตในโตเกียวของพวกเรา】ยังต้องเรียนรู้อีกเยอะเลยน้า
This Thai-subtitled video shows Naniwa Danshi’s life in Toyko and how they’re still getting to know the city they now call home.
1.) Ae! group (한국어 자막)【진심으로 쇼핑】마사카도에게 어울리는 모자를 찾아라
This newly Korean subtitled video shows Ae! group as they go shopping for a hat that fits Masakado Yoshinori’s sexy style.
I hope you enjoyed this first little Johnny’s World Round up! Keep your eye out, because there will for sure be more!
