Arashi members hold secret birthday party, Matsujun touched to tears
Johnny's popular group Arashi's Matsumoto Jun had his 27th birthday on August 30, members of arashi specially prepared a grand celebration party, which had matsujun touched to tears.
Under the suggestion of leader Ohno Satoshi, during last weekend members of Arashi specially rented an Italian restaurant in Azabu to celebrate Matsujun's birthday. Although it falls on the 30th but due to the busy schedule of members it is difficult to gather together on that day thus they decided to bring forward the celebration. As according, the staff of Hitmitsu no Arashi-chan and Arashi ni Shiyagare participated in the preparation of this party. "to give matsumoto a surprise, everyone lied to him that they are coming to this eatery for the filming of Hitmitsu no Arashi-chan for location shooting" accordingly in normal circumstances staff does not help in the parties of artistes (as it is out of their work field) but this is "for the sake of arashi only". Arashi not only became the most money-making idol group in a short time, their charm also mesmerised many in the entertainment industry.
The party started from midnight 00AM, members of Arashi each brought their sincerely prepared presents. "Recently Matsujun is into yakiniku (Korean barbecue) and hot springs", members thus use this as a guide to start their "detailed investigation". Ohno Satoshi and Ninomiya Kazunari had chosen hot spring lodging vouchers, while Aiba Masaki and Sakurai Sho selected vouchers of "10 times free eating of yakiniku".
The corner of the last part of the party is, other than Matsujun, the other 4 members shot a VTR video together, consisting of their pictures pieced together from their debut till date. 4 of them even specially added their own narration and music alongside the video. After watching the video matsujun can no longer hold on and said with strong emotions, "it's happiness to be a member of Arashi", while flowing with tears of tenderness.
The friendship and teamwork between members of Arashi is one of their selling point, this time during Matsujun's birthday it once again reflects the thick relationship ties between them. Other members not only sent their carefully prepared presents, but also the shooting of this super "tear bomb" video had let the usual manly Matsujun touched to tears. It can be assuredly said that this is the secret of the popularity of Arashi.
