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

For Higashi and KinKi though I think they're some of Johnny's favorites therefore if they ever did do something scandalous I think Johnny would pull out all the stops to make sure nothing would get out about it.

As for Sho there have been rumors about him being mean to fans and hitting them with umbrellas and smashing their cameras when they bother him. I don't mind those rumors though because I can't blame him for getting angry at fangirls who bother him in his private life XD And for K8 there was an awful rumor about Subaru a couple of years ago from the same magazine that broke this story but they didn't have pics and I won't repeat it cos I don't believe it. He also had underage smoking pics that came out when he was like 17 or 18... And Ryo had his rumors but I think everyone else is pretty safe!

hahaha perhaps. But all the 3 of them are pretty timid to begin with. Tsuyo always make fun of Koichi if he ever come out from his house. XD;;

Sho been mean to the fans? I didn't know that. This somehow shocked me... D: Actually Subaru rumor is one of the worst I have ever heard but since they didn't have prove, we still don't know the authenticity of the story. But we can pretty much say Yasu & Ohkura are pretty clean. Maybe we can add Yoko & Hina too. :3

If it's Sho, I remember some of ARASHIAN told me about this before. About Sho being angry to the fans who watched their shows because they were taking their picts. He said "YOU DO KNOW THAT YOU CAN'T TAKE OUR PICTURES WITHOUT HAVING PERMISSION, RIGHT?" idk if it's true/not. I'm not searching for this rumor any further.

Sho has a temper and quite strict with rules. Its not surprising he had acted so harshly with strangers albeit being fans. He even had problems with his group of friends from school because of his attitude but what's amazing is he managed to win them back (he talked about it a couple of times). So I'm really am impressed by him and his "bad" history build him up into a better and well-loved person today. It's good knowing about his dark side imo.
tsuyoi_hikari 28th-Jun-2011 02:17 pm (UTC)
That's why. I always thought Sho has some anger management problem when they early debuted. His aggressiveness and anger can be seen everywhere esp in their earlier TV appearances. It amazed me so much to see how he has transformed into such a gentleman and sweet person as he is now. Seeing how well-loved he is today, it make me forget about his rebellious phase...

But is he still being mean to the fans nowadays? I can't imagine him doing that though -- smashing camera & etc... :/

smashing of cameras and whacking people with umbrellas was ages ago, in early Arashi days. tabloids/haters and jelly non-fans like to bring it up once in awhile just to confuse people.
him scolding a fan taking pictures in a concert was around 2006 i think.. it could be earlier but it was not during his umbrella years. i don;t think he was being mean at all for reprimanding the fan "live". it was definitely against the rules. Just for a comparison, other members also has a little history of snapping at fans who went overboard. Jun and Nino displayed their anger clearly at fans who mass-stalked them to a train station and right into their train ride. according to fan reports the one who calmed Nino when he snapped was Sho. this was in 2006. they as a group are pretty strict with their fans if they misbehave but there's no such incidents nowadays.

hahaha 'jelly non-fans'. XD;;

One of the charms of Arashi is that they are very approachable and lovable. That explain why kids and elderly ppl love them too. :)

i wouldn't say they are timid.... but they do look after their image.....

I heard about Sho being mean too.... like whacking people with umbrellas or something? i don't remember the details....

(and what is the subaru rumour may I ask?)
tsuyoi_hikari 29th-Jun-2011 12:26 pm (UTC)
idk, they are pretty timid -- not the type that likes to go out, partying /etc... Tsuyo always snark at Koichi if he ever leave his house but all ppl close to them know that Tsuyo barely come out from his house too. They once have a talk during their 10th anniversary on their view on life, desire, marriage, & etc and it pretty much diff from other idols. And they both admit that they are not good with ppl thus they like to stay on their own instead of mixing around and making friends. Once in a while, Tsuyo does come out with his kouhais & musician friends but Koichi basically stay at home most of the time. They are hilarious and outspoken during their concerts/shows but they live a pretty quiet life privately. :3

Subaru rumor is pretty ugly. Just google 'Subaru Scandal' and you can easily find it. :X

But I thought Tsuyoshi likes his crazy lil fashion. I think it's cute they like to hang around at home xD

What view on life etc are different from other idols? (and are they ever going to get married? lol)

And yeah I should really get to know them better since I do like their music and some of the domoto kyoudai I watched were hilarious! :)
tsuyoi_hikari 30th-Jun-2011 02:57 pm (UTC)
Don't mention Tsuyo and his crazy fashion. XD I guess we fans have enough heart attacks for all the years of his eccentric fashion. XD;; But he's very awesome (talents and personality wise), so we basically forgive whatever fashion he wants to try. :) Koichi is officially the most boring J&A talents -- he even admits it on national tv since all he ever did is stay at home most of the time. XD

The view where they do not have desire to get married or etc... They like what they are doing and enjoy their own precious space. They kinda afraid if someone comes to their lives, that 'someone' might disturb their lil comfort space. Tsuyo has been saying since debut how he wants to get married and stuff but he seemed doesn't have that desire anymore...

You should. :) Their music is one of the best ever from Johnnys. Vocals and song quality wise. ^^ KinKi are the most hilarious when they are guesting those who are younger than them. Most Johnnys' SDK episodes are hilarious. Try watching the episode where they're guesting young female actresses like Toda Erika, Kitano Kii, Tanimura Mitsuki, Kurasawa Tomoka, among the few.. Young ppl seemed to take their jokes better than older people. :)

Ahhh tsuyoshi and koichi.... They make being 'boring' fun XD

I actually am at the point where I don't want to marry either..... Rofl. What they say is Sooo true! Too much trouble adjusting to another person's beat.... And less time for things I like xDDD

Of course I really liked the other johnnys on their show (ESP hsj) and I'll check out the other ones you mentioned then!

Lol I remember there was a random episode where koichi kept laughing at tsuyo cuz he said 'bearrrr'. Just thought of it for some reason and now can't stop laughing.... They r cute <3
