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.

Me too. At first I was only thinking about Ryuutaro... not specifically about how pitiful he is (cause i'm not pitiful of him) but like his actions and what I think the results will be, etc.

I don't know why, but I like HSJ a lot more now that this has happened..

9 or 10, HSJ is still HSJ, but the group will never be the same again, especially HS7
