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 hope no HSJ fans will hate on Kisumai like NEWS fans did to KT
Eh? Heh? I just knew about this. Because of the fact "NEWS getting suspended and after that KT made their debut?"

KAT-TUN's debut was decided before NEWS was suspended. But a lot of fans thought it was unfair to suspend the whole groups because of what two members did and said it was to shift attention to KAT-TUN. I think that's crazy, because KAT-TUN had a lot of attention anyway.

The timeline in 2006 was like this:
January KAT-TUN debut announced
February: Kusano drinking scandal, announcement of NEWS suspension, all members except Uchi and Kusano of course continue solo activities
March: KAT-TUN debut

ehhhh welllll i think fandom at that time was rather complicated.... and it didn't help with kt's aggressive image and fans.

I was a NEWS fan at that time.... I totally got brain-washed into hating kt.... rofl
