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 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

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 :(
