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

yeah I don't get it either.... some members get preferential treatments cuz I remember right after the Uchi/Kusano scandals, photos of Kame drinking were released too while he was underage..... they gave the excuse of something like..... it was his uncle's beer and he was just putting it in front of him O_o And of course nothing happened to kt for that

i don't get how johnny's rules work too. it's crazy. and wow, didn't know that rumor about kame. and that's really a lame excuse.
cuizy 27th-Jun-2011 10:23 pm (UTC)
yeah seriously..... do you know about the rumor of yamapi and underage smoking as well? Apparently his excuse was he was posing with it for some senpais.....O_o
katrinasacay 27th-Jun-2011 10:27 pm (UTC)
LOL. so johnny's favorites can give all the reasons they want as long as it's THEM. owhh, no. i haven't heard about that too. though there was this massu rumor which i think came out after uchi's supension which was kind of funny though. xD
cuizy 27th-Jun-2011 10:29 pm (UTC)
oh..... what's the massu rumour?

It's so bad we are trading random rumours on this xD
katrinasacay 27th-Jun-2011 10:41 pm (UTC)
hahaha! but...this is still related right? LOLOLOL
the rumor was about massu caught smoking. xDDD
cuizy 27th-Jun-2011 10:48 pm (UTC)
ooooh.... but nothing ever came of it? Was he underage then as well?
katrinasacay 27th-Jun-2011 10:54 pm (UTC)
since massu is just a year older than uchi, then probably he was still minor when it came out? xD
it's funny actually coz it's just on a tabloid too and it has never gotten big.
cuizy 27th-Jun-2011 11:07 pm (UTC)
Yeah yeah I agree, like I still remember the picture for Kame too..... he was so happy with his beer lol.

But I don't get why some published on those tabloids get discarded and some make it into huge headlines like this one!
gigabytexx 28th-Jun-2011 12:19 pm (UTC)
lol Kat, I've heard about this, but isn't it some jobless people edited & then posted Massu's screencap while he was smoking in Gekidan Engimono drama?
Maybe it's a fake so they never made it big :P
tegositi 28th-Jun-2011 09:27 am (UTC)
wait what I never knew bout this rumor! maybe I'm a bit bias here but I really can't imagine Massu smoking lololol I wish there's a picture of it if it's true and he also said that he hates smoker lol xD

cuizy 27th-Jun-2011 10:24 pm (UTC)
lol.....ok i need to revise that statement but jin's case is more like everything he did, he did it willingly....
strawberry_gemm 27th-Jun-2011 10:32 pm (UTC)
but it's hard for the group and fans after what he said he will not leave the group :(
cuizy 27th-Jun-2011 10:41 pm (UTC)
yeah yeah.....wouldn't we all like to know the inner workings of Jin's brain?
