[sz] new song: 君にHITOMEBORE

Those of you who are on Twitter have probably already heard the news, but for those who are not:

It has been decided that Sexy Zone's new song, "君にHITOMEBORE" (release date TBD), will be used as the theme song for the drama "Kurofuku Monogatari." It is a heart-pounding song about the dazzling feeling of falling in love at first sight. The song is done in the popular sparkling style that is unique to Sexy Zone and has enjoyable sex appeal. Following in the style of Sexy Zone's previous single, "男 never give up," the performers for this song will be Sato Shori, Nakajima Kento, and Kikuchi Fuma.


I'm sure those of us who are 5人 supporters are all really disappointed. However...

1. The formation of the group for this song was likely determined when the drama was cast & is therefore not reflective of 男ngu's reception.

2. The last time SZ did a drama song, "BAD BOYS / A MY GIRL FRIEND," the single was 3人 with a 5人 double A-side & there's no reason to necessarily think that the same thing won't happen again.

In any event, since we have no other information, no statement from the agency, no idea if this is a 3人 single or just a 3人 song, and not even a clue as to what the release date is, it would be a bit premature to make any other assumptions. This is just an informational post ♥

[sz] selections from jweb report re: press con for "男 never give up"

Selections from the Jweb report of the press con. Not writing out the whole thing because it is long as anything, sorry :c These are all the parts really relevant to the current situation, though.

  • "We'd like to show you many different forms of Sexy Zone, so we're releasing this single with the three of us this time." (Kento) "I think this is a great chance. We'll do our best with the three of us, and Matsushima and Marius are active as Sexy Boyz and Sexy Show, so all of us will separately get stronger, and then when we come together with all five of us again, the possibilities we created will unfold and I think we'll be able to become a stronger group." (Fuma) "We might even do solo stuff; we'd like to tackle lots of different challenges." (Shori)

  • Alongside Sexy Zone, the whole Sexy Family including the new units Sexy Boyz, Sexy Show, and others had many activities lined up; Shori also announced that he would be holding a solo concert on 7/29 (Tue).

  • "As our individual activities have increased, when I think about how Sexy Zone has infinite possibilities ahead of us, it makes me really happy," commented Kento.

  • Sexy Zone would also be appearing on 7/23 (Wed) for a concert at the Saitama Super Arena. "The five of us hope to show lots of different aspects in every scene, so I think it will be a lot of fun," commented Fuma ambitiously.

  • The Saitama Super Arena performance would be a concert with all five members including Matsushima and Marius. Two of the trio commented: "They're busy with rehearsals for Gamushara Sexy Natsu Matsuri!!' right now, so I think we'll be able to give the concert our all as a powered-up five-man group." (Kento) "The Jr. members often tell us, 'Sou and Marius are working really hard!' so I've been wondering what I'll do if their dancing gets even better than ours. The possibility is there!" (Fuma)

    You may notice I didn't put in anything about the format of the group changing to a fluid/shuffle unit. That's because there wasn't anything said about that at all. I guess putting that in made the news stories more interesting??
