Genki Iwahashi

Genki Iwahashi is a member Johnny's Jr.. He joined the infamous all-male talent agency on October 30, 2010. His progress in his chosen career was slow at first. But fans begun to notice Iwahashi because of his cute face and dimples and shy yet has a strong sense of responsibility type of personality. Confessing to being bullied in middle school (and therefore not attending school), insecure Iwahashi was actually noticeably more popular than the other Juniors whom he was usually seen appearing on tv shows with.

Currently, he is a member of a Junior unit called Sexy Boys (formerly Sexy Boyz) with other Juniors Yuta Jinguji, Yuta Kishi, Kaito Miyachika, and Aran Abe. These 5 are unofficially labeled by fans as MAJIK (M - Miyachika, A - Abe, J - Jinguji, I - Iwahashi, and K - Kishi). It was recently [2014] announced that Iwahashi is now a member of the new unit called Sexy Boyz (reason why their group's name's spelling was changed from having a z to an s at the end) with Jinguji and Sexy Zone member Marius Yo. Sexy Boyz was formed for the Johnny's Junior summer show called Gamushara Sexy Natsu Matsuri, which will begin on July 30, 2014 and will run until August 10, 2014. Genki was the leader of Team Mu in Gamushara Sexy Natsu Matsuri. His team did breakdancing. He was able to do backflip after his hardwork with the help of SHUVAN-sensei. Other teams include Ga ("Freestyle Basketball" leader: Jesse), Sha ("Funcussion" leader: Jinguji), and Ra ("Double-dutch" leader: Hokuto).
