Song

The program schedule for the 2014 pro-baseball season opening game revealed that KAT-TUN will be singing the theme song "Believe In Myself".

The information has since been deleted; however, there is a screencap here. It must have been too early for the official announcement, but at least this is something to look forward to. :)

More details to be added when available.

Shounen Club Premium
Airs Wed (3rd week every month) on NHK-BS Premium @ 20:00-20:59
KAT-TUN
http://www.nhk.or.jp/shonen-p/

It was announced some weeks earlier that Kokubun Taichi would be stepping down as the MC of Shounen Club Premium, but at the time, it was unknown who would replace him. However, as revealed by today's (3/12 JST) issue of TVstation (1, 2), KAT-TUN will take over and become the new MCs. Their first episode will air 2014.04.16. (As a side-note, Taichi's last episode airs on 2014.03.19. KT is listed as one of the guests along with other Johnny's talent.)

Other details have yet to be announced, so it's unclear if the format of the show will change and how KT will host (as a group? paired off? etc). Further info will be added when available.

In the meantime - congrats, KAT-TUN!
