Ayaka speaks about Hiro Mizushima leaving Ken-on

Earlier this week, the entertainment world was surprised by the news of actor Hiro Mizushima (26) leaving his management agency Ken-on in order to pursue writing. On Thursday, some information about the situation was revealed on the Fuji TV program "Tokudane!"

Singer Ayaka (22), who is married to Mizushima, replied to an e-mail sent by the show's newscaster Tomoaki Ogura (63). Ogura summarized her response by highlighting four major points:
  • Ayaka also left Ken-on at the end of last year.
  • Mizushima will be focusing on writing and creating works, but his activities will also include acting.
  • The company that Mizushima and Ayaka have started is in charge of managing Ayaka's music.
  • The two plan on continuing their activities independently, without a management agency.
Ayaka's response contradicts Ken-on's statement earlier this week, which stated that Ayaka was still signed with the agency and that her contract would not be affected. Ken-on has not yet commented on Ayaka's statements.

Record contracts =/= Talent management.

So basically, they were "fired" from Ken-On probably because of their marriage. Hopefully they can both get works on their own now.

I wish them both the best! I'm not a big fan of neither, but Ayaka has a lovely voice. I hope they both succeed with their careers in spite of the manager company monsters...

It's nice that they created their own company. Good luck to either of them ever getting major work again though D:

Something about this whole thing isn't fitting together to me though, I mean if the company was so mad that they got married and wanted to dump them then why did they continue to have him cast in Tokyo Dogs and BECK? It just doesn't make sense... did his popularity drop off that much a year later?

most likely Beck and TD were planned before the marriage thing was exposed. Hiro didn't get any new project ever since.

i love how this is basically a big FU @ ken-on

Ah Ogu-san, the power you have. But I'm glad that he's not going to quit acting altogether. And Ayaka, I hope she gets better soon and starts up her singing career again.

u basically sum it up XD

I'm sad that a happy occasion like marriage would potentially damage their careers.

I wish them the best.

Wow, I admire them for starting up a new company...
Both of them should have bright futures ahead of them and their marital status shouldn't affect that. Besides, their love story is more adorable than most jpop couples. :x

Hoping for the best for both of them, because gosh, I miss ayaka sfm already. *sighs*
rainbow_yarn 24th-Sep-2010 03:50 am (UTC)
Yes, this, I suppose... sigh.

The company that Mizushima and Ayaka have started is in charge of managing Ayaka's music.

YEEEEEES. Erm, I mean...

I hope this means that her time off has helped her to better manage her illness. I adore Ayaka and would love for her to come back with music in the future, so I wish her the best with both things.
