I searched a few times before I began to write this thread, if someone else posted this before, I am not aware of it.
And now let's look for other acts.
5. Miyawaki Sakura - Le Sserafim
7- Chaeunwoo - Astro
8. IU , former owner of Edam Entertainment
9- Sana - Twice
10. Momo - Twice
Where is blackpink?
And why is the former owner of Edam Entertainment doing here when she last promoted in Japan on 2013, and only returned for a weekend during the Kore-eda movie promotion? (Kore-eda's movies are not that popular in Japan since he deals with topics the Japanese would rather ignore.)
13 - Tzuyu (Twice)
14 - Sharon (Twice)
15 - Nayeon (Twice)
17 - Jungyeon (Twice)
18 - GDragon (Big Bang, which has not officially disbanded)
20 - Winter (aespa)
BTS supreme in Japan
Sakura, Sana and Momo popular in there
Chaeunwoo will rake money in Japan after he is done with Astro (Arohas think he will continue to support Astro, but I don't see it. There is the example of Lee Honggi, who supported the FT island members, and is now stuck.)
IU more popular in Japan than BlackPink despite of BP doing a Tokyo Dome concert and IU only went there once as one of the many acts in a group event (Music Bank Tokyo Dome in 2011)
Tzuyu and Sharon more popular than the Korean members
G-Dragon is still the pillar of the 2nd Generation
and the Japanese do care about Wonyoung and Kim MInjung.
