Hello! Project is a collective of Japanese female idols under the Up-Front Group flagship, which includes Morning Musume, Berryz Kobo, C-ute, Erina Mano, and S/mileage who featured together in a recent issue of B.L.T. Magazine [Jp].
If you think some of the Korean artists are too young for entertainment world, you should check this out… Japanese female pop group Berryz Koubou are celebrating their sixth anniversary today, and their average age is just over seventeen.
The girls released their first single I Can’t Live Without You in 2004 (MV below). They held their first solo concert in 2007 at Saitama Super Arena with a full house crowd of around 20,000. [Video via Leeaceno1@Youtube]…
Berryz Koubou are not the only super-young-teenage-idols in Japan; it’s a norm for Japanese idols to debut at very young age since early 90s. Koreans are merely following the path in this sense… good or bad, it’s becoming a trend these days.
On side note, today is Hina Matsuri, Japanese girls’ day. Not sure at all, but the girls might have debuted purposely on this day six years ago.
