Arama They Didn't

Update on HSJ and making headlines everywhere

Hey!Say! underage member smoking, entertainment activities stopped indefinitely

Official statement:
Today, there are some news articles, which we validated with Morimoto Ryutaro himself. He admits that he has smoked out of curiosity on several occassions before. Although he is very sorry for his behaviour and in self-scrutiny, however underage smoking as a violation of the law is common knowledge and an unacceptable behaviour. Our company has always placed emphasis on educating them in this regard. To face the facts, from now on, Morimoto will cease all of his activities in the entertainment field indefinitely.
We sincerely apologize for the trouble caused to all fans and related persons.
-Johnnys Jimusho

本日、一部報道を受けて本人に確認してみたところ、過去に興味本位で喫煙したことがあるとのことです。 本人は深く反省しておりますが、いかに興味本位であったとはいえ、未成年者の喫煙が法律で禁止されていることは常識であり許されない行為であるとともに、弊社としましても日頃から厳しく指導してまいりました。この事実を重く受け止め、本人の今後の芸能活動を無期限停止とすることを決定致しました。ファンの皆さまはじめ、関係者各位に多大なご迷惑をおかけしますことを深くおわび申し上げます

wow, i kinda didnt expect i'll get to see through something like this when i joined the JE fandom in 2009. the only hype i see comes from the tabloids and fans, but otherwise it's pretty quiet, effective and lethal.

i dont know who to feel sorry for more, the kid, his mates, or the fans.
convenience93 28th-Jun-2011 02:37 am (UTC)

I don't know how they're gonna do now. I hope it doesn't affect sales too much!! I love Ryutaro...I LOVE THE WHOLE OF HSJ. seriously. I don't know why he had to be so stupid...DAMN.
ocha_suki 28th-Jun-2011 01:23 am (UTC)
not a fan of hsj nor ryu...but wish that his fellow members won't neglect and leave him alone like nothing ever happened to them before.
the kid must be in deep depressed rn, i think he needs someone(s) close to him to console him.
floweranza 28th-Jun-2011 01:24 am (UTC)
Erm, no sympathy from me either. He knowingly did something illegal and didn't seem to mind knowledge of it circulating - if anything, kid was asking for it.

When you decide to be an idol there's doubtless numerous things you have to give up. He can't be judged as a normal teenager who wanted to fool around a bit.

(Also, Japan has been trying to crack down on smoking in its entirety lately, which is... kind of a daunting task. Not surprised by lack of leniency!)
tsuyoi_hikari 28th-Jun-2011 02:28 am (UTC)
I agree. He made a choice to be an idol and must actually give up certain thing because of this. Plus, there are many examples of idols who live a healthy, happy & scandal free lives out there.

But I still feel sorry for him -- his idol life completely over and he might regret it for the rest of his life. D:

The only reason I feel bad for him is that you KNOW a lot of JE boys smoke before turning 20 (in the past and now). But he was dumb enough to get caught.

Most of my guy friends in Japan told me they started smoke around the age of 13. It's so cheap to get a pack and before the ID scanner was installed, you can just buy them from vending machines...

Hopefully, the other underaged juniors will take note and not do this.

Not too much of a HSJ fan, but I'm kinda sad about this, he's one of my favorites in HSJ. I feel sorry for him even though he's reckless/irresponsible/unprofessional... And I don't wish for anything bad for HSJ, but it's unfair if the whole group isn't somehow "punished", or because 2 drinking is worse than 1 smoking? In case they will be punished, it's pretty similar to NEWS considering Kisumai's debut. I hope no HSJ fans will hate on Kisumai like NEWS fans did to KT

Johnny, don't do anything like putting Shin there .___. well not that I think he'll do that, but that thought is annoying.

Eh? Heh? I just knew about this. Because of the fact "NEWS getting suspended and after that KT made their debut?"

cuizy 28th-Jun-2011 02:15 am (UTC)
wait.... what happened to big bang?? i like them a lot too just haven't followed them for a while....
tsuyoi_hikari 28th-Jun-2011 02:17 am (UTC)
Didn't he learn anything from Uchi or Kusano incident? He has no one to blame but himself. Feel sorry for him :( though I'm glad that Johnnys is very strict about scandal and protecting their image..

It's hard for him to be back in the entertainment industry unless miracle happens or he works as hard as Uchi... :/
gigabytexx 28th-Jun-2011 03:57 am (UTC)
Many people wish him to be back with HSJ soon, but it won't be fair for someone like Uchi who had done something like this before and still stuck as Junior, and it has been 6 years already :(
hirogime 28th-Jun-2011 02:31 am (UTC)
ohhh great.. Great... You have such a wonderful sparkling personality and I like you so much because you are different and just being yourself without trying to look cool (ok, you've always tried, but failed) and now you are on the edge of quitting.. Just what did you do?! You braaat! *A*
ryosukeyuki 28th-Jun-2011 02:33 am (UTC)
Poor fellow. I'm definitely feeling sad and sorry for him. :(

I wonder if he'll be kicked out of Horikoshi Gakuen too. D:
convenience93 28th-Jun-2011 02:39 am (UTC)
depressed =(

I love all of HSJ...I really do...

And Ryutaro...why on earth did you have to be so stupid??
You were talented too...damnn...
