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

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
