Johnny’s Jimusho reported on May 3rd that they’ll be producing a Chinese idol group. Johnny Kitagawa plans on debuting the group at Hey! Say! JUMP’s stage play titled, ‘JOHNNY’S World‘, at the Empire Theater in Tokyo, in November. Johnny Kitagawa commented, “I want to produce a local Chinese idol group, and I also want to hold an audition in China. I haven’t decided how many members will be in the group, but I’m thinking the members’ age range will be around junior high school age.”
I never expected for a Chinese Idol group to be debuted under Johnny’s Entertainment. I’m quite shocked but at the same time since Johnny Kitagawa seems to be full of surprises. What do you think about this? Are you excited?
