The three Johnny’s’s who left KIMPLI…The magazine has been taking pictures of their shining faces.
Three members of the male idol group “King & Prince,” Shiyoh Hirano (25), Yuta Kishi (27), and Yuta Jinguji (25), all of whom belong to Johnny’s, have decided to leave the Johnny’s office. The announcement was made on the night of November 4 on a blog for their fan club.
Needless to say, Kimpuri has been attracting a lot of people. Even those who are not avid fans must have been saddened by the news.
This magazine has photographed the “real faces” of the members of Kimpuri many times. Here are some of their shining days.
On location at a shrine in Tokyo
Early in the morning of mid-May 2009, a TV crew was getting ready to shoot at a shrine in Tokyo, where the air was fragrant with fresh greenery. At the center of the group were Kei Inoo of “Hey! Say! JUMP” and Yuta Jinguji of “King & Prince. Ino is dressed to the nines in a navy suit, while Jinguji wears a parka and jeans.
Ino’s first starring role in a TV drama. Filming began in early May of 2009, but it was not going as fast as expected under the emergency declaration, so it was currently being done at a rapid pace” (commercial TV drama director).
Ino repeated testing and production many times, and finished filming at 11:30 a.m. without a single break in the rain. Jinguji continued to a park in Yokohama City, where filming continued until 5 pm. It was quite a hard day, but the tag team of Johnny’s seniors and juniors was very enthusiastic.
Yuta Jinguji shows his mood-maker act at Sensoji Temple (22 years).
Kindaichi Shonen no Jikenbo” (NTV) and “Boys Over Flowers” (TBS) ……. Japanese idols have gained popularity along with famous dramas. Now, “Kurosagi” (TBS) is the most watched by jani-wotaku.
This popular drama once starred Tomohisa Yamashita and recorded the highest viewer rating of over 18%. 16 years later, Shiyoh Hirano, the center of King & Prince, has been chosen to star in the remake of the series.
Hirano was spotted by this magazine at Sensoji Temple in Asakusa (Taito Ward). Despite the early morning shooting, Hirano was talking to the staff and showing a lot of attention to making them feel at home. He seemed to have become a mood-maker on the set.

When he was selected to star in a drama as a Jr. member, he did not shrink away from the scene with all his seniors. She is a person who can stand in the center of the stage without being intimidated. In variety shows, she is a natural character, but she expresses herself very well in singing and dancing, and she is suited for roles with a shadowy side.
Hirano has shrugged off the pressure of her previous hit. He will make another great leap forward.
Crepe in one hand…! (22 years)
It was late February when I saw Yuta Kishi, the leader of the group, near a JR station in the suburbs of Tokyo. 26 years old, he looked quite comfortable in his school uniform.
The film is “G-Men,” a manga about the youth of yankee youth of the same name. Kishi plays the lead role of a troubled high school student.
The scene being filmed was Kishi eating a crepe while walking down the street with a female co-star. Kishi is known as a mood maker among the Kimpuri. When the camera was not rolling, he could be seen cracking jokes and making the people around him laugh.
Between takes, Kishi sat on a chair and grabbed an armrest, swaying it back and forth. Perhaps it was a habit of his, but he kept rocking back and forth quite often, as if he were an elementary school student bored with class. Perhaps this is a small way to relax in the midst of a busy day!
–The five of them together will probably not be seen together again so easily. However, the footprints of their journey will never disappear.
