What's the real meaning between Gravure Idols?

Post by HW-DiEnd » Thu Oct 18, 2012 10:23 pm

Yesterday, some photobooks of actresses like Ayumi Kinoshita and Shiho arrived from Japan for some of my friends who ordered it.

I still don't get it.Maybe some other people can answer me.Japan have over nine thousand gravure idols(i think).But can someone answer:
What's the true meaning of a photobook?How i can use those photos for something?I'm very stupid,and i would like someone that could explain this(i don't live in Japan,so i don't get it)Because AV idols,i can get it,and they're good for something.



ps: sorry for my bad english,it's kinda hard to estabilish myself in this forum and have a nice conversation with you guys :3

Gravure idols = softcore porn

It's the same reason why you buy Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue.

Pretty much what Lunagel said. They are like the teenager equivalent of playboy.

But they can land roles in TV or movies if they're pretty enough.

Most of all the KR and Sentai girls of this decade did gravure and modeling at some point. I mean, it's money for just looking pretty and cute.

AV idols are different from gravure idols. AV idols literally does hardcore porn like you said, but gravure idols are just posing to look pretty. They don't strip all the way.

A lot of gravure work can lead to AV work when the girls hit 18 or later, but otherwise the two are separate entities.
