Kotoishi Naru keeps on calling the main character a Junon Boy. He seems to take this as insulting.

What is a Junon Boy and why does he dislike being called that?

Junon is a monthly Japanese fashion magazine primarily directed towards teenage girls and women. It began circulation in June 1973.

Source: Wikipedia

Given Junon super boy contest is a beauty contest I would guess, "Junon Boy" basically means "pretty boy".

The magazine hope page can be found at: http://www.junon-boy.jp/

I am basing my answer on research so perhaps some one else can confirm this, also I could not find any information of the meaning of maganize name alone, so again I am basing on the circumstances.

This is right as far as I can tell. –  senshin Jul 7 at 5:47
    
The only context I've heard "Junon" used is referencing the magazine or contests, so I'm pretty sure this is correct. It's worth pointing out that the homepage for the contests is junon-boy.jp. –  Logan M Jul 7 at 20:50

Someone replied about Junon Boy at this link 5yrs ago. So maybe that'll help a little bit (^^,)
