Now you could have an overview of your favorite artist's educational background. tongue.gif

Article: April 2, 2006
Source: http://www.libertytimes.com.tw/2005/new/ap...oday-fshow3.htm

For Japanese idols to manage their career well, it's hard on their studies and many have to forgo further studies. Many Johnny Entertainment artists only finished high school but it appears that the younger generation would work on both and would like to go onto college dispelling the image that artists do not like to study.

The school 日本堀越學園 Horikoshi High School/ Horikoshi Gakuen is the breeding ground for many idols. They only require interviews and some documents and the attendance requirements are very slack. The idols who could not receive normal high school education would prefer going to this school.

Of all the Johnny's artists, the students included Goro Inagaki (SMAP), Tsuyoshi Kusanagi (SMAP), Tsuyoshi Domoto (Kinki Kids), Yamapi (NEWS), Matsuoka Masahiro (from TOKIO) and Jun Masumoto (Arashi).

Koichi spent four years to graduate from 東海大望星高校畢業 Tokai University's high school branch - (another article said 5 years), Tsubasa (T&T) and KAZUNARI NINOMIYA also used their spare time to attend courses or correspondence courses to complete their high school education. It could be seen that it is not easy to get a high school diploma after all.

But perhaps many fans do not know that the most popular JE stars including Shingo Katori (SMAP), Tackey (T&T), Nagase Tomoya (TOKIO), Morita Go (V6), Ken Miyake (V6), Inohara Yoshihiko (V6) all have only a high school education. Because of their workload, they couldn't cope with both. Recently, Inohara Yoshihiko probably felt the importance of academics; he recently went to apply to a high school and at the moment is studying at a high school in Tokyo. He said that in the past, he put all his time in work. He hopes that he would be able to get a high school diploma before 30 years old.

Relatively, the younger Johnny artists are different. Recently, Sho Sakurai (Arashi) has graduated from the Economics department at Keio University. It is understood that he has been studying from kindergarten onwards schools that are in the system of Keio University. He had always wanted to study economics.

Yamapi and Koyama Keiichirou of NEWS are now studying at the Meiji University and working hard at the schoolwork after work.


My notes:

Keio University is the first private university established in Japan in 1868. The university has produced many politicians, business top executives, writers and artists. The IBM chief executive and the present Prime Minister Junichiro Koizumi is also a graduate from there.

Here is more information on the school in English and Chinese and the list of well known students.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Keio_University
http://zh.wikipedia.org/wiki/%E6%85%B6%E6%...%A4%A7%E5%AD%B8

Meiji University is also a private university founded by three lawyers. It has a long list of artists who graduated from the school.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Meiji_University
http://www.meiji.ac.jp/cip/english/index.html

But noteworthy is that, Chou En Lai, the First Prime Minister and Foreign Minister of Communist China (1949), came from Meiji University. And well known director Takeshi Kitano studied at Meiji before although he dropped out.

Here is the Horikoshi Gakuen 堀越高校 (Horikoshi High School) website that many of your beloved JE artists graduated from.
http://www.din.or.jp/~hori-ko/index2.html

and if you look at this wikipedia site, you could see the many, many, familiar artists who graduated from this school. Even Sanada Hiroyuki did!!!

Article: July 12, 2006
Source: http://www.takungpao.com/news/06/07/12/UL-592254.htm

For the summer season, Kame’s Supplement drama was one of the most awaited drama however the first episode only had 17.9%. It was a surprising figure because most Monday night dramas are at 20% and above.

Instead, Hiroshi Abe’s drama of Unmarriageable Man Kekkon Dekinai Otoko got a high of 20.2% and next were My Boss My Hero at 19%. Supplement is at the fourth position.

It is possible that Abe’s drama receive such a high viewership because Abe himself is 40 years old and is still unmarried. The story is very close to his real life and so it drew a lot of discussion. Plus in the first episode, his arms were bared. We could see that mature men is more attractive then young Kame.

Finally have watched the first episode of My Boss, My Hero.

laugh.gif laugh.gif A lot of fun. Gosh, Nagase strikes me very real - a bit baka and empty headed in real life. But I shouldn't say that since Koichi likes him so much.

Perhaps one day I would understand him more as I watch more talk shows of his. But for now, enjoyable episode.

28 year old Nagase recently was in high school uniform for his drama series, My Boss, My Hero and the first episode was at a high of 19% viewership. The most recent episode, it was even 20.6%. On the set, a lot of pretty young people were present and he joked that he had a generation gap and ot sure how to communicate with them. He joked, "My complexion is a bit rougher than the youngsters and I guess I had better do facial masks everyday."
