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:

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.

Someone replied about Junon Boy on Yahoo! Answers 5 years ago. Hope this helps a little bit.

It is a beauty contest for young boys, like teenage boys. Junon is a magazine, like Seventeen. I don't know what they win, but I think many girls' readers vote, and I believe the winner will get some money and a contract with some actor/modeling agency.

Most of the contestants are just young boys who want to be actors/models.
