JEP CAST (Japanese Entertainment/Johnny’s Entertainment Podcast) is a podcast where four girls hilariously discuss the ins and outs of Johnny’s Jimusho (also known by fans as Johnny’s Entertainment or JE for short) which is a Japanese talent agency of male pop stars. Each episode covers a week’s worth of news from both the debuted groups (SMAP, Arashi, Hey!Say!JUMP, etc.) and Johnny’s Juniors. We also discuss and expand on fan’s opinions on certain topics–like PVs or a specific male of the Jimusho. Come join us for the latest news from your favorite talent agency!
