Actress Rena Sasamoto told the press she is not dating Johnny’s talent Hiroki Uchi, reports Sankei Sports.

 

The actress was promoting her latest stage musical “Jekyll & Hyde” on March 6.  A few weeks ago, a photo of her with Uchi was published in gossip magazines.

 

It has been reported today was her first time in front of the press, who asked her, “what about that rumours of you dating someone”.

“There’s nothing to be worried about.  I’m sorry for the misunderstanding.”

 

The actress had continued to emphasise her point.

“Are you just friends,” asked one reporter.

“Yes, that’s right,” she said.

Musical actress Rena Sasamoto

Japan’s Women’s Weekly (週刊女性, Shukan Josei) has reported Johnny’s talent Hiroki Uchi and actress Rena Sasamoto are still dating, reports Spotlight News.

It has been reported Shukan Josei published photos of the two walking out of an apartment building in Tokyo together with Sasamoto’s pet dog.

It is the not the first time the two have been caught together though.  In September 2010, gossip magazine Josei Seven also reported they caught the couple on holiday in Hawaii.

However, Sasamoto’s agency Horipro has said the two are just friends.

15,000 fans crowd to Shibuya for A.B.C-Z event

11:50 JST February 1, 2012 3 comments

A.B.C-Z fans in Tokyo yesterday were able to buy the group’s debut DVD from the members themselves, reports TV Asahi and Chunichi Sports.

 

Johnny’s group A.B.C-Z is the first group from the agency to make a ‘DVD debut’, and a day before the official release date, a special event was held in Shibuya’s SHIBUYA-AX on January 31.  By 8am, 3000 fans had started lining up, and by 2pm this number swelled to 9000 fans, so long that the line continued on for a kilometre down to Shibuya’s NHK Hall.  When the event started at 3:30pm, the five members shook hands with each and every fan, and handed them their DVD copy of “Za ABC ~5 stars~”.

“Thank you so much for lining up in the cold weather,” Koichi Goseki said.

“Everyone was apologising to me about having cold hands when I was shaking them, but all I wanted to say was, ‘no way!  It’s your warm-hearted thoughts that count!’,” Ryosuke Hashimoto said.

 

It has been reported a Johnny’s & Associates representative had said events where talents sell their product to fans had not been done since Mayo Kawasaki in the 1970s – 80s.  A.B.C-Z had asked for the event to be held as a way to “let fans know how grateful the group are for them”.

 

The DVD was also the group’s idea, which they had thought would be best to showcase their dancing and acrobatic skills.  The music video for the title number “Za ABC ~5 stars~”, for example, is a 4min45s video taken in one take using one camera, leaving no room for mistakes.

“It took us eight takes to get it right.  It’s like a live performance,” Fumito Kawai said.

 

Shota Totsuka said the title also had a special meaning for the group.

“A star itself doesn’t know it’s shining.  We can’t call ourselves stars, it’s something we have to earn from others who see us shining,” he said.

 

After the DVD event, 1000 lucky fans were invited to a special concert that night.

Johnny’s Jr. talent and B.A.D. member Akito Kiriyama performed a somersault from a platform 2.1 metres high during a concert on December 5, reports Daily Sports Online.

 

Kiriyama was performing in the Kansai Johnny’s Jr. X’mas Concert in Osaka.  It has been reported in front of a crowd of 1000 fans, Kiriyama climbed up onto the platform between songs, took a deep breath, then jumped and flipped around to land perfectly on his feet again.  The only other Johnny’s talents known to have succeeded in pulling off a somersault from that height are Noriyuki Higashiyama from Shonentai and Koichi Domoto from KinKi Kids.

“My personal best up to now was 1.8 metres,” Kiriyama said, making this a new record by 30 centimetres.
