An Introduction to Fure Fure Danshi | Group of the Month June 2019

Hey there, idol fans! You may have noticed that the blog was pretty quiet over the month of May. It was a pretty busy month for me so I decided to take a bit of a break. You see, not only was it my birthday month but the blog also turned 2 years old as well! There are a few little things I've been working on that I'll hopefully be able to share with you all soon. But anyway, let's get on to talking about this month's featured group!


June's Group of the Month is none other than Fure Fure Danshi, a 5-member (formerly 6-member) male idol group who's aim is to support you. Their mission is to cheer on anyone who is doing their best and most of all they want to support the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games. The group made their debut in 2017 and released their first self-titled single the following year. They will be making their overseas debut at Japan Expo in Paris next month after winning this year's Tokyo Candoll -BOYS- competition.

I've been curious about Fure Fure Danshi for a while, but hearing that they were the winners of this years Tokyo Candoll -BOYS- and therefore would be performing at Japan Expo gave me more insentive to look into them. They don't have a whole lot of content out there as of yet but they're very cute and I like what I've seen of them so far.

What do you think of Fure Fure Danshi? Are you planning to see them at Japan Expo in July? Let me know in the comments!
