Latest underage Johnny to be caught in a scandal

Shuukan Josei will publish a story tomorrow about Hey!Say!Jump's youngest member Morimoto Ryutaro (16) who was caught for underage smoking in two pictures from when he was 14 and 15 respectively.

The following excerpts are from the article:

Hey!Say!Jump is a Johnny's group with 10 male members and debuted in September 07. They have been the Harukou volleyball special support group. They also hold the youngest record for a group to perform in Tokyo Dome.

For such a popular group, why is there underage smoking problems?

It seems that since a while ago, Morimoto has been smoking in toilets and outside openly. Even when people have raised concerns about it being bad if discovered, he had replied "It's fine, don't worry" (daijyoubu daijyoubu).

Hey!Say!Jump will release their new single 'Over' on June 29. Hope they will rethink their actions next time as to not hurt the fans, as well as cause damage to their young bodies.

From January '10 when he was 14.

From May '10 when he was 15. The cigarette held in his left hand, the end of which is red and has smoke coming out.

Stunning news, photos of Morimoto Ryutaro underage smoking

Kids, learn this lesson: Once you smoke, it's not always the smell that stains and stays on you, it's the the habit to smoke that's the hardest to remove.

will they? it's still not the same weight as underage drinking. but Morimoto has gotten few screentime, i bet he'll get so few now.

*coff* Well, I think the issue at hand is that he's underage. And has been smoking for some time too. Given the fact that a lot of idols smoke (all of Arashi have at some point for example), I don't think that him smoking is actually all that strange.
As far as I know, smoking isn't as "out" as it is in the rest of the world D:

To be honest, what makes me mad in this case is not only that he's a freaking kid and people around him should have his health in mind more than anything else, but it's also the fact that these people are supposed to be professionals. AT SINGING!
I can't understand how someone who needs to use his vocal cords every single day would start smoking. That, to me, is anything but professional.

This. This SFM.

This about ALL the "singers" who smoke, in fact.

I get that smoking is still largely widespread over there, but...that's just...plain...stupid. And for people who have dedicated, obsessive fans like Johnny's do, I don't know how they can imagine it's okay to hurt themselves like that. Anything they do to hurt themselves in any way hurts the fans directly, and anytime they say, "Naw, it's fine, don't worry," like this, and the fans hear about it... That's like a punch in the gut. D: (I don't particularly care about Ryutaro or this scandal, but...well, I'm an Arashi girl, and we all know there have been enough scandals where they're concerned.)

He's my fav of HSJ and I used to like him very much (but since Johnny decided to push Yamada and Chinen, I gave up trying to look for him in the corner everytime HSJ is on something).

I'd doubt that he'd be so stupid to be caught on cameras like that, he's not even trying to hide it. But then again, ppl are not always do what they should so...

It's so obvious that it's him. I wish that it was less clear and so harder to prove but.... it's quite obvious.

Yeah, smoking per se is not bad. It's just that he's so young and still underage. I hope he gets out of this cos I still like him and keep looking past Yamada and Chinen to see him sometimes.
chizzyrei 27th-Jun-2011 03:14 pm (UTC)
boy, you're in danger.
imagine if it's Yamada, HSJ's gonna be in so much boiling water now.

this gives johnny a reason to get rid of him...the reason they were looking for?
mele_3_4 27th-Jun-2011 03:25 pm (UTC)
I also can't see the pictures

I kind of see this as a stupid kids will be stupid kids thing but on the issue as a whole of underage kids smoking in Japan, it's pretty damn obvious it would happen when cigarette vending machines line the streets and the price is usually the equivalent of being under $10

oh ryutaro
everyone knows at least a few dozen teens that smoke or drink underage, but doing it so blatantly in public is pretty dumb. like other people said, it's hard to question those pics
sakana93 27th-Jun-2011 03:34 pm (UTC)
I really wonder why he let others took those pics. The one that did has to be close to him. Maybe his mates in JE or his ex O.O
