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

If Johnny's want all their talents to succeed w/out serious health problems, they should make all them quit smoking regardless of age... but of course, that's never gonna happen....

No, it won't, because then they'd get fat.

I don't think it keeps you thin, but people generally do gain weight when they quit. I think it's mostly because they need something else to do with their mouth/hands. I know the first time I tried to quit I was eating like crazy.

i agree with this SFM!!!! i dont understand why singers would smoke anyways, sure theyre stressed but theyre gonna kill their voices even more

I would love for them to all quit smoking but this is personal matters. The only person who can make you quit is really yourself.

I guess it's because they still need to be punish in some ways? I dunno. But prohibiting smoking for those who are over 20 is kinda weird.

that's becos they were punished lol

Js' talents are not objects nor are they children (I'm talking about adults of course). They do whatever they want with their bodies, they're free human beings...

Free human beings who are still in a contract with an organisation that is paying them to do a job - ostensibly, the fact that they're smoking hurts their ability to function within Johnny's, as singing is generally required (not necessarily good singing, but functional vocal cords, at least, which smoking directly affects).
My own company discourages me from smoking (I don't smoke, but you know what I mean) even on my own free time - it's not a fireable offence (or I know multiple people who would be gone), but because I'm a teacher and supposedly a role model, they 'would rather I didn't'. I'm also not supposed to do things like jaywalk, run a red light on a bicycle, use an umbrella on a bicycle, be seen [too] drunk... all things that are not illegal (actually, I'm not sure about jaywalking where I am rn - in my own country, it's legal), but that as an obligation to my company I'm not supposed to do.

The issue in this case is more about legality than health, though.
