Currently, Nakayama is doing “Playzone’13″, starring in “Pin to Kona” with Kis-My-Ft2′s Tamamori Yuta, and he is set to do the stage play, “ANOTHER”, this September.
“Although I went to University last year, I had a change of heart, and decided to leave school during midterms. Its all work now; however, it was not a waste to have studied and took the entrance exam. Despite the troubles, I will continue to climb the stairs to adulthood,” Nakayama mentioned in an interview from Yomiuri.
“Since there was no sighting of him (Nakayama) from school, we assumed that he took a leave of absence of have withdrawn. We know that balancing work and studies would be hard so it was a good thing that his (withdrawal) has been officially announced. Since this has been a tough decision for him, we will continue to support him,” according to Nakayama’s fan in her 30s.
