Higashi is known for his stoic character. Even in the COVID-19 crisis, he continued his daily gym routine.

The empire is facing an unprecedented turning point.

Hideaki Takizawa, 40, vice president of Johnny’s and president of “Johnny’s Island,” left the company on October 31. Furthermore, on November 4, Shiyoh Hirano (25), Yuta Kishi (27), and Yuta Jinguji (25) from the popular group “King&Prince” announced that they would leave the group next year. A week has passed since their shocking departure, but it is still causing quite astir.

Tackey, who was officially named as the successor by Janney (Kitagawa, 87 years old) and has made numerous achievements as the vice president of the office, and Kimpuri, who shot to stardom as Janney’s “last group to be produced by the office. It is simply unfortunate that both of them are leaving the office, as it seems that Mr. Janney’s last legacy will disappear. There is a possibility that more members will leave the office in the future, and Johnny’s is approaching a major turning point.

KinKi Kids” celebrated its 25th anniversary this year. Although rumors of their departure from the group circulated at the end of last year, they are still active today. Their presence in the office is tremendous.

What does the future hold for the Johnny’s empire? As power continues to be concentrated in the hands of President Julie, industry insiders are said to be keeping a close eye on “two key figures” in the industry. One of them is Mr. Higashi.

The first is Higashi-san (Higashiyama Noriyuki, 56). Before his death, Mr. Janney personally appointed him as a key person in the office. He is a stoic person who, even in his late 50s, continues to go to the gym as a daily routine to set an example for his juniors, and above all, he cares about the survival of the office. In fact, he made his presence felt when Match-san (Masahiko Kondo, 58) left the office. Conversely, however, he has no mercy for talents who rebel against the office. There is no doubt that he will be an assistant to President Keiko Fujishima Julie (56) and will have real power.

In fact, Higashiyama was the subject of an appearance on the November 6 broadcast of the information program “Sunday Live! (TV Asahi) on November 6, 2011, in which Higashiyama spoke about the successive uproar over his departure from the company.

In fact, Higashiyama commented on the November 6 broadcast of the information program “Sunday LIVE! I think the announcement came at the right time for each of them.

He commented, “I think the announcement came at the right time for each of us. He was quick to put out the fire.

The other two key figures are the two members of KinKi Kids. Mr. Janney discovered their talent early on, produced them directly, and nurtured them with great care. They are the oldest group in operation, releasing their latest single in July of this year, and they are the ones who can move freely within the office. They are the only group that can be said to be carrying on Mr. Janney’s legacy, so it is very important to know what they will think and how they will move forward.

How will these key players change Johnny’s? How will these key players change the needs of the Japanese people?
