While the member solo activities increase, KAT-TUN's activity as a group is poor. The schedule of national tour was scrapped. The theme song for their CM only got released by limited distribution download. What has happened to KAT-TUN?
Although it was decided on the 21st that the theme song of Yuichi Nakamaru starring drama on TBS would be a new song of KAT-TUN but the CD release of the single is still undecided at present and fans are growing more and more uneasy. Although the single "FACE to FACE" was put on the market in May of this year. It is said that Koki Tanaka's wild private life has interfered with activity of the group. Koki went ahead and opened a member-only club without Johnny's approval. Even Koki's appearance in the 3-member radio program KAT-TUN with Nakamaru and Junno has decreased sharply. Their Suzuki CM theme song "BOUNCE GIRL" was only released as limited time offer distribution for about one month at the end of August. Furthermore, the theme song of Kamenashi Kazuya's drama "Tokyo Bandwagon" on NTV is a musical piece by a unit with Koji Tamaki and Kame. And many fans who were expecting the new song release as KAT-TUN are disappointed.
Fans are even more worried that Nakamaru's drama theme song has not come out with a release date. It doesn't help that Tamaki joked about KAT-TUN will disband and a new band "Hotta Family Band" will be formed. Even though Kame has denied the disbandment but no one can laugh about this because of the numerous KAT-TUN dismissal reports flowed out by the media.
If there is no CD release, there will be no opportunity to appear on popular music show as a group. And the only other venue where KAT-TUN can be seen together is at the concert. But it's been said that Mary Kitagawa, J&A Vice President is angry because a lot of money was spent on KAT-TUN's CHAIN concert last year to set a gorgeous stage and the company did not gain any profit from CHAIN ticket sales. After the production cost, the company lost money and in the red. Mary even thinks having a KAT-TUN concert is useless. For now, it looks like each member solo activity will be prolonged. Fans are wondering when they can see the five of them again.
