An introduction to Gingadan


Gingadan (銀河団), which means ‘galaxy cluster’ in English, are a 5 member group formed from Bancho Boys members and Bancho Boys trainees. Some of the boys had previously performed under the ‘Bancho Boys Trainee’ name, but they were officially announced as a unit on February 25th during a Bancho Boys Live. Shortly after that, they performed their song Hello Again as an opening act for the stage Give Up Dance (which one of the members, Kihara Rui, also acted in) and announced they would be releasing a CD at the end of May 2017.

Below is some information on each member. I’m still working on this as more information appears about them (and may have also included a few of my own opinions).
