Video Shows Scouts on the Streets of Shibuya and There’s A Lot! How do scouts work in Japan? In Oshi no Ko, we saw that Ai ended up being recruited on the street by Ichigo-san to become an idol, so in episode 2 Ruby ends up being recruited too.
On the streets of Japan it is common to have recruiters who will approach girls they consider beautiful and offer job opportunities in things like idol, model and also nheco nheco.
Video Shows Scouts on the Streets of Shibuya and There’s A Lot!
A girl decided to record a video of herself showing the scouts on the streets of Shibuya who stop her, and there are even many and there are some parts that are in sequence! Watch for you:
She reports that she made the video to show men that they don’t believe it when women say they are approached all the time by scouts in Shibuya.
In fact, the video shows several men approaching her, asking her to work with them on “specific areas”. Japan’s “hot” film industry often recruits new actresses off the street, as reported in interviews with actresses who started out that way.
Other people find job listings and apply on their own. For idols, gravure idols, models, there are also street recruiters. Impressive, isn’t it?
