“KAT-TUN 2010 Summer Premium”

Shinseido added information to one of their “Going!” web pages. They mention a Special Campaigne “KAT-TUN 2010 Summer Premium” for those who buy two works, no details about what will the campaigne be about, but they say Johnny’s web will update the information about it in the last 10 days of May. They also mention the release of KAT-TUN’s 5th album (now recording) for this coming June

Johnny’s Web has updated a bit on this information. The “KAT-TUN 2010 Summer Premium” campaign is a “Going!” and the 5th and unnamed album one. They confirm there will be one album for June. For those who buy both works they tell people not to lose the belt paper (strip of paper between the plastic package and the actual cd) that will come with “Going!” normal edition because on it’s back there will be a code. They also say they will provide more information by the end of May.

KAT-TUN cancels Bangkok concert

Johnny’s Jimusho announced on Saturday that KAT-TUN’s concert in Bangkok, Thailand, has been indefinitely postponed due to the political unrest in the country.

Recent clashes between the National United Front of Democracy Against Dictatorship (UDD) and the police have been escalating in violence, leading to many injuries and deaths.

KAT-TUN’s upcoming Asia tour was scheduled to start with a concert in Bangkok on July 31, followed by two shows in Seoul on August 6-7 and two shows in Taipei on August 27-28. Although the Bangkok concert has been suspended, the other four concerts will go on as planned.

A similar situation happened in 2006, when an Arashi concert in Bangkok had to be canceled due to the coup d’état in Thailand.

Kame: “I am dissapointed. I expected to spend time with Thai fans. I know there are a lot. I’ll still would like to do a concert there so wait until there is another chance to do so”

KAT-TUN NEWS

unday, April 18 to Tuesday, April 20

SINGLE:

– “Going!” Type B will include a 20 page booklet

TV:

– The four songs included in the medley Junno will perform in Shokura are “Seishin”, “WIND”, “Natsu no Basho” and “Samurai☆Love☆Attack”.

OTHER

– “Agent Nakamaru” informing: After the general rehearshal, that went very well, they only have final discussions about costumes, goods and synchronization to finish.

Kame was interviewed by Sports Hochi. Being his first sports only interview.

His mision is to show the charms of baseball to young audiences

Kame: “I didn’t expect to be chosen i was surprised but happy”

“For me baseball players are high above. I feel like returning to childhood”

“I feel the quality of human beings talking with the players. When i wear costumes and get bathed by the spotlightlight in concerts it’s different. It’s a different filter and i want to go ahead step by step”

Since it is his first experience he goes by trial and error.

Kame: “Since the state of mind is what influences the results in sports I try to be careful with the timing and kind of questions in the interview”

“I study the way of thinking of top athletes and it’s stimulating. When I go back to KAT-TUN I think i’ll see interviews different. A new point of view”

More on Jin and KAT-TUN’s future

Tokyo Sports is back with more (alleged) inside info on solo artist and aspiring Hollywood actor Akanishi Jin.

Rumor has it Jin passed his Pirates of the Caribbean audition!
I didn’t realize this was supposedly happening already. Anyway, if this turned out to be true… lol idek.

According to a Hollywood insider, “There’s no official announcement yet but out of the nearly 10,000 applicants, Akanishi was picked. Originally he was to play a leader of Japanese pirates but now his part is undecided, however he will play an important role. Surprisingly, it was also leaked that Watanabe Ken might be in the movie as well.”
Ah, Watanabe Ken, the go-to guy for all things Japanese male.

Adding to Jin’s good fortune, his concerts in L.A. are sold out! “In just 3 hours, all 2300 seats were sold out. Japanese fans bought tickets but over 40% went to Americans.”

If all this is to be believed, things are looking quite good for Jin. Unfortunately, there’s some bad news as well: Jin will leave KAT-TUN in December.

“KAT-TUN’s contract with the company that handles their cell phone content runs out in December. Once the contract is up, Akanishi will be released and his departure from KAT-TUN will be announced.” After that he’ll spend a year shooting the movie and traveling around for promotional events.

Charts: Johnny’s all around

Johnny’s Jimusho proved dominant on the music charts this week, earning 1st on the album, single, and DVD rankings.

KAT-TUN’s 4th album, “Break the Records -by you & for you-,” sold 200,000 copies to lead the albums chart, continuing the streak from their first three. Elephant Kashimashi charted at #3 with their newest release. Also making the top ten were a request album for guitarist hide (#7) and the latest effort from Tommy heavenly6 (#9).

Similarly, NEWS extended their own streak, sending their 11th consecutive single to the top of the charts. “Koi no ABO” sold 234,000 copies, far ahead of SID’s new single, which ranked 2nd at 59,000 in sales. They were followed by new songs from JUJU (#3) and Shoko Nakagawa (#4). Idol groups Buono! (#7) and Idoling!!! (#10) also broke the top ten.

Meanwhile, Hey! Say! JUMP’s tour DVD claimed #1 in the overall DVD rankings, moving 77,000 copies. With an average age of 16.8 years old, they qualify as the youngest male artists to top the overall DVD chart.

Care #1 in Dwango music download ranking

CARE ranks #1 in the Dwango Official Music download ranking as the most downloaded song.

#3 is 1582
#5 is Sadistic Love
#7 is 春夏秋冬

Nowadays, official music download is very popular in Japan and it takes away some of the physical CD sales. And Oricon is thinking about including it in their Oricon chart. 5 of KAT-TUN songs are in the top ten..Congrats to our lovely boys.

Apparently the three ranked are only 3 votes and 6 votes apart (Ohno-san and Mizushima-san were only 3 votes and 6 votes behind Mastuyama-san respectively). The page here described it as an intense battle between the three actors and greatly praised their acting skills. It also mentioned that it was the first time for Mastuyama-san to be awarded (no wonder he kept going on about how he’s honoured by this award in the video) and the fact that Mizushima-san had 26% of all the magazine readers’ votes.
