Amidst all of this, it seems their management agency is also keeping a very close watch on their talents…
“Matsumoto Jun is good friends with Oguri Shun, who is known for being a playboy. Because of this, the agency have told him to stop interacting with his good friend. Ninomiya Kazunari is also banned from going to drinking parties with his comedian friends. Ohno was told to be more careful after tabloids found out he was dating AV actresses.”
However, that doesn’t stop the men from selling close to 10 billion yen in merchandises this year. This is why J&A is even more severe towards them. Even though they gave them smart phones as presents, it seems that the agency also uses those smart phones to track their every move using a GPS app. This way, they know where the 5 guys are 24/7. And it seems that the guys know nothing about such a tactic.
With such a popular group, tabloids are keeping close tabs on the guys to see if they’ll slip up, but J&A might’ve gone too far with the GPS tracking.
In my opinion this is just insane!! o.o Please stop this Johnny, this are human beings and not dogs or something :(
