In Asian countries like Japan and Korea it’s a big scandal when you have a public relationship or marriage. That kind of publicity signals the end of a girl’s career in many cases because it crushes the dreams of their fans.
One J-Pop group, The Happening, is breaking from that tradition and holding public auditions for potential dates and even husbands like a Japanese version of “The Bachelorette.” The 4 girls in the group Manaka, 20, Saaya 22, Kaori, 26, and Eri, 25 are adding this “public audition” as part of their reality television show. The thing about these girls is that they go everywhere in their bikinis so it’s important that their potential suitors are okay with that.
“We are positively encouraging our fans to meet and date the girls. How they get on and how far they go is up to them. But they’re contracted to let us into their private life and share in their relationship.”
– show spokesman Teruki Aoki to Daily Mail
The requirements to be eligible are pretty simple and straightforward.
- Between the ages of 17-30
- Live in Tokyo, Japan
- Be okay with your date wearing a bikini everywhere
