KAT-TUN to host new variety show

KAT-TUN will host a new variety show on NTV, their first since “Cartoon KAT-TUN” ended in March 2010. The new show is tentatively titled “KAT-TUN no Zettai Manetaku Naru TV(KAT-TUNの絶対マネしたくなるTV)” and will have the members of KAT-TUN presenting people “you will want to imitate” and various goods, aiming to create new trends.

It seems that the members will be in charge of different areas based on their interests. For example, Kamenashi Kazuya(亀梨和也) will cover food and sports-related topics, Tanaka Koki(田中聖) will deal with music and recent hot spots, and Nakamaru Yuichi(中丸雄一) will handle new products and daily living.

Three guests on the show will determine which members presented something that “you would not want to imitate,” and those members will have to participate in a penalty game, possibly drawing on other recent trends.

Taguchi Junnosuke(田口淳之介) commented, “Our concerts got postponed this year, and the five of us weren’t able to release an album, so I’m very happy that we are able to work together on something.” KAT-TUN has been a five-member group since last July, when Akanishi Jin(赤西仁) officially left to pursue a solo career.

“KAT-TUN no Zettai Manetaku Naru TV(KAT-TUNの絶対マネしたくなるTV)” will air on Tuesday nights from 11:58pm to 12:29am, starting on October 18.
