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

awwwww they are so cute

unfortunately i was a news fan at that time too...... I guess going thru it once makes the 2nd time less shocking if not less hard on me......oh johnnys

i just became a NEWS fan around 2008 but i loved uchi and notti before i came to know the rest of NEWS. LOL
i was just telling my friend that those who had been fans of NEWS when uchi and notti were removed from the group probably had felt same during the exact time it was announced... D: i feel this day being so gloomy since i'm a jump fan too. :(

yeah..... i was a new fan when they were suspended so it was like learning about them then SHOCK! So sad that they had a hiatus for an entire year.... I wanted my passion for them to remain the same.... but unfortunately time and less exposure does have effects on us fans :(

I just hope that hey say jump will still be allowed to have their normal activities and hopefully morimoto can come back after a while

at least hsj can still go out and perform as jump after this scandal.. and that was too bad for NEWS. D:

aww...yeah. same here. i really admire those boys.

I had seen this post of yours on tumblr earlier and when this fuss came out, I was like: "Wow, that gif maker was surely a prophet!!" o______0
It must be terrible for all NEWSxHSJ fans to go through the tragedy twice :(

though my intention of comparing them is on the good side, didn't expect it will be the other way around. D:

I know :( And I'm surprised that people rarely (or never?) compare JUMP to V6 while they share the same concept being split into 2 sub-groups based on age
todsen 28th-Jun-2011 12:04 pm (UTC)
V6 and JUMP having subgroups based on age, then JUMP and NEWS having drinking/smoking scandals..

now my top three favorite groups in Johnnys are somehow connected to each other, aside from being volleyball supporters :(
