Shirahama Alan’s agency releases statement regarding Shukan Bunshun’s report

On January 31, LDH the agency fo GENERATIONS from EXILE TRIBE’s Shirahama Alan, released a short statement regarding Shukan Bunshun’s report about his relationship with AKB48’s Minegishi Minami.

According to their comment, “We leave his private life up to him. He told us that they were nothing more than just good friends.

Shunkan Bunshun reported that Minegishi spent the night at Shirahama’s place, on the latest issue published on the 31st. It caused Minegishi’s demotion to Kenkyuusei, and she also posted an apology video on AKB48’s official YouTube channel with a shaved head.


 I hope more agencies would become like LDH in regards of dating rules. Thank you HIRO-papa <3

Edit: Wow those angry wotas hating on him. Some fans need to understand that he didn't do anything wrong nor is he able to fix anything. They should also stop calling him a coward with no balls who doesn't support his friend. You don't know what happened in private.

I love this kind of agency. It treats its workers as real human being. In a way, I always respect non-idol agencies because of it.

Is there anyone who can explain further the details of "not dating policy"? I mean, a man and a woman seen walking together can also be called scandal in Japan. And why do people accuse them of being in a relationship? Dating does not always mean they are. Although in Japan there's an unspoken rule of 3 dates means they are in a relationship.</p>

In this case, I say that unless she was dragged by force or drugged, it's her own fault that she got demoted when she got caught in a scandal. If she entered the guy's house by her own conscience and in full consciousness, then she has full responsibility on what she has done. She's an idol, she cannot be tarnished, I think she has been drilled by that rule, so she should know and understand the consequences.

I always think that agencies with no-dating policy is stupid, but I think fans who think they own an artist just because they buy merchandise and in the fanclub are stupider. And especially fans who never buy anything and think they own the idol just because they "love" them.
