Masahiro Nakai * Takuya Kimura * Goro Inagaki * Tsuyoshi Kusanagi * Shingo Katori
Their musical debut was in 1991. Since then they have been releasing many CDs, three of which have been sold more than a million. Recently, the interval of releasing single CDs is becoming relatively long, approximately once a year. So far, SMAP released
more than 30 singles and 25 music albums.
Their latest album SMAP 019 released on 24 September 2008.
SmaSma is weekly variety show which are several types of entertainments ranging from cooking, comedy, and games to singing and dancing, often with local and international celebrity guests.
Besides acting in dramas & movies, the individual members are also currently regulars/hosts on individual own shows.
At the same time, they also cultivates a distinctive image and personality…
individually and as a group.
Although they entered Johny’s much earlier in 1986.
SMAP was first formed in April 1988, though their début single came in 1991.
The letters of “SMAP” officially stand for
“Sports and Music Assemble People”.
Along this 20 YEARS, this bimyou (weird) group still strong stronger strongest…
SMAP will keep smapping until they become Ojii-chan’s (grandfathers).
