I dont see why though.... i mean the music industry in korea right now pitiful. even if JE has fans in korea, it doesnt mean they will go out and buy their albums. The average kartist(besides DBSK) cant even sell up to 100k in korea. also, no offense but most of the JE boys cant really sing. they are good for eye candy but that's probably as good as it gets for me


i totally agree :P
JE produced alot of "idol bands" like they dont need talent but their looks & charms enough to swoosh girls :P
DBSKs more of a "talent band" their fans like them for their talents (&their looks & charm ofc)

bottom line. JE's not much more than eye candy.

ps. I STILL LOVE KAT-TUN ;D

It is always interesting how major labels send their bands around Asia. I wished that they could break into the American market. I guess it's all about cultural differences. :\ Good luck to all the bands trying to break into various countries' music scene.

that's interesting. :]
i wouldn't have imagined JE expanding to Korea because i didn't think they had to, with all the fans and success they have in Japan.
exapanding to korea = more popoularity and money for JE

That's cool as long as JE doesn't get involved with SM in any way (especially how Sm treats it's artist like DBSK)

looool.. so if JE grouops debut in korea will they sing Korean!? XD that would be funny ~~ start learning guys =P
oh well.. i find that idea kinda weird.. i cannot imagine JE guys in Korea for some reason.. moreover it's probably way better for them sales-wise to stay in Japan (because as we all know Koreans don't buy as much as Japanese do..lol)

i dont think theyre gonna do great but they might just get by ok. if they do go through with this plan of theirs then theyre gonna need better songs, better dancing, and grow a bit taller. i wonder what will happen if they only air the je's singers and not sm's chinese singers?


ROFLMAO ur "grow taller" thing made me LOL hahas yeah but you reminded me...

SM's new chinese artists vs. JE's boys...DUN DUN DUN.

who knows...it's a pity though that korea's entertainment sector is sucking up to china bc of underlying economic opportunity, but it's a profitable reason, but while a korean JE would be cool...and making profit in both countries is nice...now that i think of it it just doesnt make sense for JE, korea's population isnt even a quarter of japan's, so in terms of sales, WTF? >3> what does johnny WANT from korea anyway?! we're overcrowded enough, especially with that u-kiss and smash shit floating around =_=;;

and even though im wishing yamapi's (safe!) popularity well...idk if the airport incident is a good indication of how MANY fans there are...we certainly know now that the ones that exist love him very MUCH. but i think we all know JE WORLD takeover isnt going to happen. i think that one's self-explanatory, sadly. unless they go for a huge music&image change >_<

Too bad SM doesn't sell very much compared to JE..b/c in the end it all comes down to sales which is why venturing out to Korea is a waste of time b/c they don't buy a lot of singles/albums and the music industry isn't that great that's why a lot of korean artists are being exported to other countries so that they can make more money.

i think what she meant is that in japan, when they say you're an idol it does not necessarily mean you are so good in singing. singing is JUST one of the things you should be able to do. you should be good in dancing and acting too. almost all of the je boys are good in dancing. well when it comes to singing SOME of them could sing and even compose/produce their own songs. that's why they are put into groups so that they could fill in what the other members lack. most of the idols focus more in acting, since having a good voice is a god given talent that even long hours of practicing couldn't give (ok maybe your voice control etc. would get better but the quality itself, you can't change, like someone said there are born singers, and trained singers). although they should also have more singing lessons to sharpen their skills. and most of the famous idols are famous for their acting skills not their singing ability.

regarding the expansion of je in korea, im curious to how it will turn out. generally their sales in japan is really good. while the sales of hit artists in korea is lower than in japan. plus, i wonder how the fans will react. i mean, when yamapi went to korea on a supposedly private trip he was harassed by some of his fans he was already that famous there when je haven't even promoted them thoroughly in korea. i wonder how it'll turn out...


sadly, i dont think the boys are good in dancing, acting, producing bla3. ok, maybe FEW of them. JE is just like SME, they put some pretty faces in a group and can dance pretty well(for LSM only because JE's artists are not good at dancing at all), then voila! a group will debut next week or even the next day.

seriously, i don't get it why yamapi can be leader whereas his voice is the worst...
je's tactic, have the most cutest and popular member as the leader...
one of the reasons why i hate je's boybands..
