Meet Honey Popcorn, The New K-Pop Group Made Of Japanese Porn Stars

“Honey Popcorn” sounds like an over-the-top cutesy hentai or adult film from Japan. While the upcoming project WILL feature three popular adult film stars, it’s actually going to be a K-Pop girl group.

Yua Mikami was the first announced member. A press release this week revealed that she will be joined by Miko (NMB48’s Okada Risako) and Sakura (Bakusute Sotokanda Icchome’s Ito Yuu).

The Honey Popcorn trio will have their world premiere concert at Yes24 Live Hall Gwangjin-gu, Seoul, which contrary to its name, is in fact a musical venue and not an adult theatre.

Prior to her career as a porn star, Yua worked as a pop idol in Japan. She has plenty of experience as both a singer and a dancer. It can be inferred that her bandmates were also selected because of similar training or background. Sex appeal also appears to be a crucial trait that will carry over from one industry to the next.

The promo calls the event a “debut showcase” and features the singers dressed in outfits that are supposed to evoke oozing, dripping honey. I’m not entirely sure if it falls under the category it it’s supposed to be cute or tantalizingly erotic, but it’s certainly memorable.

Honey Popcorn marks the first time that any number of Japanese adult video stars have attempted to transition from the world of Japanese porn to that of Korean music. It remains to be seen if their popularity will translate or endure.  At the very least, it’s sure to be a thrilling social experiment on crossover appeal between two different Asian pop culture mediums.
