Akanishi Jin’s fan club officially dissolved



For the past month ex-KAT-TUN member Akanishi Jin has been undergoing a lot of unfortunate heat for his recent marriage to actress Kuroki Meisa.

When the news of their marriage was made public Jin was forced to cancel his Japan tour as a penalty for going against his agency, after that Jin was made to drop his role in an upcoming drama. Now it’s been announced that his official fan club has been dissolved and this has fans worrying if the singer will be retiring. Akanishi’s fun club was in a joint fun club ‘YOU&J’ which also included KAT-TUN, NEWS and others. The dissolution of his fan club is because of the disbandment of ‘YOU&J’, and each artists will have individual fan clubs.

Johnny’s said that the fan club membership fee’s will be repaid to it’s members after May. The fan club announced a halt on April 19th, that all services have ended after the 28th.

On the official Johnny’s website the reason for the immediate dissolution is because Jin not only has activities in Japan but overseas as well and it’s difficult to control media information (there).

In general I don't like the idea of them splitting You&J Q__Q"
It was so convenient to be able to be in a FC for more groups, especially because I like them all. And having to join their individual FCs would be way too expensive for me. QQ But maybe that's what this is all about. Money. Lol.

But well no FC for Jin is a really hard punishment. Although I wonder what Johnny's is going to do about this concerning concerttickets in Japan and stuff. But well.. they have about a year to think about it carefully, right?

Fans would just have to get their tickets through Pia or something like it.

''It was so convenient to be able to be in a FC for more groups, especially because I like them all.'' That was my first thought when they announced it few weeks( month?) ago.

I have to pay for four FC now. XD It was way more convenient earlier xDDD

that was my first thought, too xDD
I mean, the good thing is that there might be less competetition for the tickets now.. but still... I don't want to pay for 4 FCs when I needed to pay for one only before ;; Johnny only wants our money. It's so true. D:

because their fanbase has reached working age by now, and the company decided it's time to reap what they has (not) sown. now many of the fans can pay themselves instead of asking their parents.

they were bundled before bec NEWS & Kanjani8 shared members between them? then KAT-TUN was somehow mixed in. I don't think they were really waiting for fans to reach working age, bec HSJ was given their own FC and their fans are teeny bopper age.
