Kamenashi’s biggest flying stunt revealed  

Kazuya Kamenashi had been getting special training from a Chinese stunt coach to pull off his biggest flying sequence yet, it was revealed at a press conference in Tokyo on September 4, reports Sankei Sports and Chunichi Sports.

The Johnny’s talent had just finished his performance of “DREAM BOYS”, which opened on September 3, when he appeared in front of the press.

Kamenashi’s highlight performance sees him starting from a triangular swing set up five metres in the air.  From there, he bungy jumps down, then spins around to fly back up.  The stunt requires the performer to grab the rubber rope as they are falling down, then use their abdominal and arm muscles to lift their entire body back up, do a full 360-degree spin, and end up back at their starting point.  It has been reported Kamenashi repeated this 15 times at high-speed without any mistakes.  Getting the stunt wrong would leave the performer dangling in mid-air.

A special performing coach had been called in from China to teach Kamenashi the stunt.  Although it would usually take a performer four months to master the sequence, an already fit Kamenashi managed to master the stunt in just 20 days.  Although the KAT-TUN star has been doing flying stunts for years, he said this one was his hardest yet.

“To be honest, it’s the scariest one I’ve done so far.  Before we started training, I weighed 64 kilos, and now I’m 59.2 kilos,” he said.

Johnny’s & Associates president Johnny Kitagawa had said he has hopes of taking the show overseas to the US.

“There aren’t many talents who have been able to push themselves to that extent.  I think it has potential to be recognized even in America.  I hope we can sometime next year,” he said.

I know the poster would have been done a while ago but if it's anything to go by, he's looking hot and so fit! Go Kame-chan! Mind you, not the way I'd recommend losing weight. Thanks for posting this, hope he just doesn't hurt himself at any time. We need our Kame-chan.

this is what you get from fantabulous kame =))))))))))) awww! he's definitely getting better and i cant wish him more but the best in this last one. OH YEAH PARTY! kame's getting sexy again ♥♥♥ and i've always wondered why for johnny the US is the border of everything. i mean if it's good enough it should always be brought there... not that im implying anything but i've confused myself with what's exceptionally special in there for mr. jimusho president to ceaselessly mention of having to show "worthy" performances in that specific place. i think every KT perf is worth going everywhere. anyways, this was awesome news! it brought back my life =))))) thanks for sharing it^^ *hugs*

im so so so proud of kame right now ♥

Wow! Lots of hard work and training must have gone into this. I wish I could see it!!

Note: Why is it America all the time? There are many, many countries all around the world, with fans who want KAT-TUN to perform there. What makes America any different?
fazlyn_nfazlyn_n on September 5th, 2011 11:44 am (UTC)
I hope they'll make this into DVD...PLEASE JOHNNY-san

Dream Boys 2007 was my very first Kame DVD I bought, I mean aside from his drama (Nadeshiko & NWP). In my country, Jdrama are quite easy to get but Japanese concert and musical are rare item here especially when compare to Kpop stuff.

I still remember how thrilling the whole show was, watching all the amazing stunts even though I have no idea what they talked about. Kame is amazing isn't he...pushing to be the very best in everything. He's a super idol indeed, mastering in everything given to him. But I do hope he doesnt push himself too much :)

Spoiler: I've just read in a fanreport mentioning the boys sang aishiteru kara numerous time and Maru has his own version. It's my all time fav song. It was the very song made me fell deeply in love with Kame. The song was on repeat for months. I so wanted this DB to be in DVD

I've actually seen him doing that stunt live, and it's absolutly amazing! and he seemed really scared of doing it and really consetrated. When he did it, he almost sleaped from the triangle. It's not only bungy-jump, but there are also dancers that hung out in the air and he needs to be carfule not to hurt them when he jump. and then, when all the dencers leave he stays alone on stage and keeps doing more gumping. When he finished, he looked really relieved.

I'm gonna die for sure. When a friend told me that Kame does something seems like dangerous at the Dream boys perf, I was really worry about him. It seems like he over work again. As expect, he is really amazing and wonderful, and I'm so proud of him, so proud to be his fan, but I'm still so worry about him. Of course I trust in him so much but Worry is still worry. I hope he won't over work and hurt himself. But I have to say " Subarashii Kame-chan, I'm so proud of you". Just be careful, ok. Love you so much Kame. And thank you for sharing this ne~^^

Thanks for sharing.
Kame!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! While I think it's awesome he challenges himself like that I also worry for his safety. And losing weight on top of that is not good. 64 kg isn't exactly "heavy" by any standards for a guy his size. :(
