About The Owner and This Blog

"In the male idol fandom it gets to a point where whenever you find something new online like a fanfiction or a blog post you look at the person who posted it and you're just like 'ah, it's you again' because there's honestly only about 5 of us active in this whole fandom." - SOU complaining (lovingly) at some point

My name is SOU, also known as That G=AGE Girl (No, I will never let that go in case you're wondering). I'm a Jpop fangirl in my 20s from the UK. I like to maniacally rave about things and give Johnny's Entertainment sass. I try my hand at translating things sometimes but my Japanese is pretty basic so don't expect much. Some other things I like besides Jpop include dancing, writing, anime, cosplay, web design, and otome games. Nice to meet you!

Around 2012 time I was absolutely obsessed with Johnny's Entertainment, particularly Sexy Zone. Sometime in 2013 though, I lost interest partially due to the Sexy Zone member split. I returned to the Johnny's fandom in 2016 but was still felt somewhat unhappy with the agency and its overall structure. As a result I developed a mild curiosity as to what boy groups outside of Johnny's were like and this led me to groups such as M!LK, Bullet Train, and most of all, G=AGE.

I became very passionate about these groups and really wanted them to get more attention overseas. This led me to create my Tumblr blog where I tried my best to translate things and introduce these groups to a wider audience. After G=AGE's disbandment later that year I lost my enthusiam on account of them being my favourite group and the blog was abandoned.

After a while my love of Jpop boy groups began to return little by little and I made this blog in mid-2017. My goal is still to spread the love of male idol groups overseas and also to connect with other fans!
