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

The only reason I feel bad for him is that you KNOW a lot of JE boys smoke before turning 20 (in the past and now). But he was dumb enough to get caught.

Most of my guy friends in Japan told me they started smoke around the age of 13. It's so cheap to get a pack and before the ID scanner was installed, you can just buy them from vending machines...

Hopefully, the other underaged juniors will take note and not do this.

brb. Let me go and ask them.

Seriously though, smoking is a very common thing in Japan and no one sees it as the disgusting habit that it is here. If you think that they haven't at least tried it, you must also think they will never date either because it's against JE rules.

lol calm down girl, i'm just responding your comment.
fyi i'm not those naive-labile-possesive-fangirl who doesn't know how society and entertainment world works in real life.
if they never tried it before, i'm surprise how good the boys are and i know exactly those boys can date every girls/boys that they want as long as paparazzi doesn't get their picture/photo.
