Johnny & Associates' Response to Morimoto's Incident


On June 28th, Johnny & Associates announced their official message on their homepage regarding the incident with the youngest Hey! Say! JUMP member, Morimoto Ryutarou (16).

Although the agency did not report Morimoto’s name or the validity of his actions, they posted a formal apology to the fans by stating, “We are deeply sorry for the inconvenience and the worry we have caused.”

As a response, the agency added three more dates for Hey! Say! JUMP’s entertainment show, ‘SUMMARY 2011’, with one Osaka Dome performance (September 18th) and two Tokyo Dome performances (24th and 25th). This show was originally scheduled to occur from August 7th to September 11th.

In response to Morimoto’s indefinite suspension, his appearance may be omitted from various pre-recorded shows. For example, it has been revealed that his appearance on Hey! Say! JUMP’s regular show, “Yan Yan JUMP”, has been deleted from the recorded footage.

Johnny & Associates commented on their actions, stating, “We will air the episode after replacing all the cutout scenes with other members of the group.”

It is still undecided if his appearances in TV programs such as “HEY! HEY! HEY!” and new CMs such as the ones for Lotte will be omitted, but it is currently under review.

With this, the rest of the members of Hey! Say! JUMP pledged that, “We will do our very best so please do continue to support us from now on.”

FYI. the Dome concerts were announced to fan club members a day (or 2) prior to the scandal, so it was actually NOT in response to the incident. But I'm happy it's pushing through.

I've been a hsj fan for years, they are my "own idol group" but yet I don't think what others are saying is wrong. We have to step out of our delusional world and accept the facts. I know it's not what you want but you don't get everything you want in life.

Maybe you dont know what I really mean
Some people seems to be really happy and just wait for him being kicked out,then they will just laught at us fans
lovedaworld 29th-Jun-2011 06:54 am (UTC)
I have yet to see people do that. When news came out that he was being taken out lots of my friends who are NEWS fans were supportive for me. They knew I was upset over him leaving. Ignore people who laugh at you.

Obviously our friends will support us right?
But haters. Icant stand them, and also the "fans" who act as if nothing happens, they just care about their ichiban (yes Im butthurt I admit)

Well it's better than them acting that everything will magically go back to being normal. I've been through too many groups breaking up, there is no happy ending with everyone usually.

Thinking about your bias first is natural, everybody does it.

They dont act like that,they just hope for the best. And actually Im Yamada bias, not JUMP, but I dont get why they dont care a bit. Seem like unity is not a big prob to many people
this will never happened to Arashi
lovedaworld 29th-Jun-2011 07:29 am (UTC)
Arashi has problems of their own, especially with fans. I used to be an Arashi fan before joining HSJ. Don't put us down.

they just hope for the best
what else are you expecting then?
sakana93 29th-Jun-2011 07:33 am (UTC)
Lol me too, coincidence?
Every fandom has its own problem. I also understand. But Im talking about JUMP fandom

most of us in the fandom utterly dislike our own fandom members who thinks its ok to flaunt Arashi around in other fandom's problems, especially in posts like this. its unacceptable and i'd be like Sho's with an umbrella when I see comments/posts like that.
sakana93 29th-Jun-2011 12:34 pm (UTC)
Im sorry, actually Im in both fandom so this happens quite often
Will try to advoice it
And I wont mind being hit by Sho. Im M lol
