Idol group FUDANJUKU Facebook page achieves 10,000 fans in first month Number of Facebook fans doubles in just one week
December 6, 2012 – Japanese idol group FUDANJUKU (“Yatterman,” “Ginga e Kickoff!”) started their official Facebook page on November 9, and has surpassed 10,000 fan “likes” less than one month.
Even in the first week of December, the fan count has more than doubled, spurred by international promotion and the release of their new PV “Jinsei Wahaha”.
Fudanjuku’s members are all successful female idols who perform as young males with “otaku” obsessions. FUDANJUKU’s official Facebook page posts messages in multiple languages, including English, Spanish, Korean, and Japanese.
The group’s members are hoping to reach a worldwide audience after the release of their latest album “OTOKO” earlier this year.
