Well basically, there was a case in early april 2007 *im not sure if its still going on now* but i just want to know what you think about it
heres the websites were i obtained the information

http://ugaya.com/column/061230EnglishSummary.html

http://www.asiamedia.ucla.edu/article-eastasia.asp?parentid=63270

Basically, its just stating how a 43year old journalist published this in a magazine and got sued and had to pay 50MILLION YEN compensation!!!
Its rumoured that johnny's entertainment are "bribing" the oricon to make sure all their singles + albums hit number 1# (or atleast in the top 10) The oricon are taking Kitagawa-san's money and putting their singles to a good level. Which is quite noticeable as bands like KAT-TUN and newS have atleast 11-12 consectutive number 1's. As well as other groups.

On other websites it has articles how "johnny bribed nikkan sports drama prix" and "ratings of drama" so they hit number one (there was quite a debate on tokyograph whether johnny bribed nikkan to make sure Kamenashi Kazuya was voted best actor..even though his drama was one of the worst of the season)

So what do you think?? I'm not really sure..but whatever goes with the flo. I just want to see how you respond to this? Do you think its lies? Or do you think that Johnny are "cheating" their way through success?

Plus, if you think this is a pointless thread or that this is a duplicate lock it.
Thank you

idk how this bussines is in japan but i´ve heard that a lot of companies not only japanese
do these thing
i´m not sure about it someone told me so
but if this is ilegal in japan then he needs to be prosecuted is not fair to other artist
i like kat tun and think they work hard and deserve the credit they get
but these kind of rumor´s is not good for their image
and also for all the jonny´s

i did search this for a project i did for a class last year..n its tru! if anyone bashes on anything JE, johnny can just take the boyz out of the variety shows dramaz etc. and then the ratingz would plummet....he has a lot of power over the entertainment industries so i wouldnt be surprised if he paid different music programz n magazines off to do anything. i still like JE BOYZ...they are awesome...even after learning about all this..i still like them..cuz..they're good..maybe not all the best singerz n dancers but they are entertaining...this just made me not like johnny too much anymore...
but thats the way business workz sometimez
