As was announced, Johnny's group KanJani8 are going to release a special drama this summer set in the aftermath of the Hiroshima bombing. The group was originally set to release a similar special in 2005 before issues with a former member made previously filmed footage unusable.
All members will be participating, and though no date is known for the release, it is said they will also record a song for it to be released in the early fall. When asked why they were being allowed to film the drama, company owner Johnny Kitagawa stated "They have moved past what has happened. But they have forgotten who they were and I feel that with their talents they can go back to their roots with this special."( Collapse )
