Johnny’s Jr. has formed a new group called Mr.King vs Mr.Prince, who will be the face for this summer’s “TV Asahi Roppongi Hills Natsu Matsuri SUMMER STATION.”
Johnny’s Jr. is a part of the Japanese talent agency Johnny & Associates, Inc., which focuses on young trainee boys that have not yet made their debut in any part of the entertainment industry. “Johnny’s Jr.” is more of a nickname for these boys, rather than an official branch inside the company.
The concept for the new group will have them divided into two sub-units: Hirano, Nagase, and Takahashi will make up Mr. King while members Jinguji, Iwahashi, and Kishi will make up Mr. Prince. Though the group is still extremely new, they are already being referred to by nickname “Kinpuri (キンプリ).”
“Kinpuri (キンプリ)” will support TV Asahi Roppongi Hills Natsu Matsuri SUMMER STATION and is in charge of creating the theme song for the event and will hold a concert at EX Theater Roppongi. The upcoming summer event will feature food, concerts, and program attractions. It will run from July 18th to August 23rd at TV Asahi and Roppongi Hills.
