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

wow, i kinda didnt expect i'll get to see through something like this when i joined the JE fandom in 2009. the only hype i see comes from the tabloids and fans, but otherwise it's pretty quiet, effective and lethal.

i dont know who to feel sorry for more, the kid, his mates, or the fans.

I think it's not going to affect the sales for their release now, people have already pre-ordered this single I assumed? But yes, it will affect their sale on their next release (which I doubt they'll release soon considering about what just happened)
