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.

It's going to be okay, bb.

He will move on. He is very young and the world is his oyster. Frankly, if being in entertainment made him smoke at 14 (one of the pictures), he might be better off in a less stressful environment.

Sorry to butt in, but I agree.

Wish him the best of luck at whatever activity he'll be doing in the future.

That's the thing I'm worried about. These guys have depended on the entertainment business for a very long time. When they are cut off from that, it creates a depressing situation tbh.

and he got cut off so fast. he must be in denial now.
Crap, and at a time HSJ's just announced 2 Tokyo Dome concerts.

It's hard for a child star to adjust to normal life after being idolized and getting catered to.

True, but better now when he can still finish school and maybe go to college and find a different career path then at 29, where he is supposed to have his shit together and can't.

Hopefully it goes well for him.

As far as scandals go, this is tame. If he has a good family and the support of his friends then he'll pull through. :)

True, true.

"Frankly, if being in entertainment made him smoke at 14 (one of the pictures)"

Lots of 14 boys smoke (at least in my country) and they are not in the entertainment business
