Johnny & Associates' Response to Morimoto's Incident


On June 28th, Johnny & Associates announced their official message on their homepage regarding the incident with the youngest Hey! Say! JUMP member, Morimoto Ryutarou (16).

Although the agency did not report Morimoto’s name or the validity of his actions, they posted a formal apology to the fans by stating, “We are deeply sorry for the inconvenience and the worry we have caused.”

As a response, the agency added three more dates for Hey! Say! JUMP’s entertainment show, ‘SUMMARY 2011’, with one Osaka Dome performance (September 18th) and two Tokyo Dome performances (24th and 25th). This show was originally scheduled to occur from August 7th to September 11th.

In response to Morimoto’s indefinite suspension, his appearance may be omitted from various pre-recorded shows. For example, it has been revealed that his appearance on Hey! Say! JUMP’s regular show, “Yan Yan JUMP”, has been deleted from the recorded footage.

Johnny & Associates commented on their actions, stating, “We will air the episode after replacing all the cutout scenes with other members of the group.”

It is still undecided if his appearances in TV programs such as “HEY! HEY! HEY!” and new CMs such as the ones for Lotte will be omitted, but it is currently under review.

With this, the rest of the members of Hey! Say! JUMP pledged that, “We will do our very best so please do continue to support us from now on.”

FYI. the Dome concerts were announced to fan club members a day (or 2) prior to the scandal, so it was actually NOT in response to the incident. But I'm happy it's pushing through.

I said this before, it's not like I want sth bad for HSJ, but isn't it unfair compared to NEWS a change that HSJ activities aren't affected at all~
chizzyrei 29th-Jun-2011 04:44 am (UTC)
it totally went overblown with NEWS. having 2 members kicked out after another is something really harsh and the media was all over it. that time i think a hiatus is needed.
visionfactory1 29th-Jun-2011 04:44 am (UTC)
He doesn't deserve to be in HSJ at all, I don't wish him to get fired but please don't return to HSJ.
redblood619 29th-Jun-2011 04:47 am (UTC)
That. Is just selfish. I wouldn't even imagine hearing "HEY SAY JUMP 9 MEMBER GROUP"
twilightstarz28 29th-Jun-2011 04:47 am (UTC)
damn, hater(s) stop hating, everyone makes mistakes. and he's still young! :P
he IS part of HSJ and will always be!
lovedaworld 29th-Jun-2011 05:31 am (UTC)
we're not being haters, just realistic. everybody makes mistakes and therefore there are consequences. he's young so hopefully he'll clean up his act and do better with his life now.
redblood619 29th-Jun-2011 04:50 am (UTC)
I have been sulking over this ever since it came out.
Just bring ryutaro back. Don't kick him out ;__;
2hothere 29th-Jun-2011 04:58 am (UTC)

*sighs* here comes the heart-ache of groups losing member again...
NEWS/Kanjani8/KAT-TUN and now HSJ...please, don't hate on him..everyone makes mistakes...nobody is perfect..and he's only 16..I feel sorry for his fans.:(
sakana93 29th-Jun-2011 04:58 am (UTC)
A lot of people here are saying things like: he deserved to be punished, he wont come back,etc...
I know its plainly his mistake and he has to face the consequence but please stop saying mean things like that. Imagine its your own idol group and you will see how much us HSJ fan are suffering. Its not just about him,but also about the rest of JUMP and the fans
A lot of their fans has been crying out of their hearts

Poor Shintaro who has to talk like he doesn't have a brother for the next 5 years

crap, I forgot about how he has to fake not having a brother..... whatever, he wanted yuma as a bro instead :') Yuma, join the HSJ family!!!
kazunika 29th-Jun-2011 05:05 am (UTC)
i dunno..its just a very sad day for me.
i wonder what the other members thinking n doing right now?
crying their heart out? or been forced to not even talk about ryutaro!
xkimchi_ninja 29th-Jun-2011 05:07 am (UTC)
They should just replace him with Yuma :)

lol I feel like whenever a JE member caused a scandal, they'll be wiped out from the face of the Earth.

[well, maybe not just JE members.. *remembers Daichi and Alex scandal*]
swimmer_chen 29th-Jun-2011 05:38 am (UTC)
that's so not true. only one example supports that statement you just made.
lovedaworld 29th-Jun-2011 05:19 am (UTC)
Why can't we just accept Ryutaro is gone? This is not the first time a situation like this happened. I know you're in pain but look at the brighter side. Now the rest of the 9 will know to watch what they do and hopefully be SMARTER and not get their butts kicked out. Don't just think of the pain Ryutaro is in, what about the other 9? Be a true fan and support HSJ no matter what.

Ryutaro, good luck in life. Please start being smart and work on getting a real career.
