Japanese all girls pop group Morning Musume is in popularity crisis. Their recent singles are not doing well in sales, and their long running variety show Haromoni@ (sequel to Hello! Morning) is doing so poor that TV Tokyo has decided to end the show on Sept 28.
Despite their dropping popularity in Japan, the group is still quite popular in other Asian countries. Morning Musume has began actively expanding their influence outside of Japan with series of promotions and concerts in China, Korea and Taiwan.
