【J01】The 1st Japan Billboard Leader of the New Year 2022 (Week 1/52)

The Japanese Group J01 has come to the end of 2021 and begun 2022 as the Billboard Leader in Japan. 
The love Song - 僕らの季節 (Bokura no Kisetsu) hear it below. Refrain translation: 

"Wait for me
Before the freezing winter
I’ll go see you first
In the white season
We were shining"

This music is part of the Japanese music group's 5th single "Wandering" released in 15th December 2021.

I see the J01 as a Japanese version of the BTS from the point of view of the song and the group. The music of this group is a bit different from the "standard" Japanese pop music, but I enjoy it.

The super cute members consist of:

Issei Mamehara (豆原一成)

Junki Kono (河野純喜)

Keigo Sato (佐藤景瑚)

Ren Kawashiri (川尻蓮)

Ruki Shiroiwa (白岩瑠姫)

Shion Tsurubo (鶴房汐恩)

Sho Yonashiro (與那城奨) - líder [30]

Shosei Ohira (大平祥生)

Sukai Kinjo (金城碧海)

Syoya Kimata (木全翔也)

Takumi Kawanishi (川西拓実).

Their first single, 'PROTOSTAR', was released on March 4th, 2020.

The eleven member japanese boy group formed by the top contestants of the programme Produce 101 Japan, owned by LAPONE ENTERTAINMENT.

LAPONE Entertainment (LAPONEエンタテインメント) is a Japanese entertainment company. It was founded on May 29, 2019 as a joint venture between the South Korean company CJ E&M and the Japanese company Yoshimoto Kogyo. Reports suggest that the company had a capital of *100,000,000 (approximately US$958.772) in 2020.

The company currently manages the Japanese boy groups JO1 and INI.

The MTV VMA Japan awarded J01 the "star on the rise" award in 2020.
