Since the dismissal of Tanaka Koki, KAT-TUN has become a 4 member group. From the day following the dismissal, they have appeared in TV shows from news to gossip to variety to apologize to the public and fans and presenting themselves as a 4 member group KAT-TUN. In addition to their New Year's Eve concerts on Dec 30 and 31 at Kyocera Dome, they have also scheduled for fan meetings from Jan 2 - 4, 2014. And a new album is being released on Nov 27. All of these vigorous activities are to dispel their negative image. To project their good boy image further, Kamenashi is being groomed to be the caster for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. Speaking of newscaster in Johnny's, Sakurai Sho is well known but Kamenashi has the favorability from baseball fans who watched "Going!Sport News". In addition to Kamenashi and Sakurai, NEWS Koyama Keichiro and TOKIO Kokubun Taichi are active as casters also. All have been making noise recently in the factional fighting of Julie Keiko Fujishima faction.
The other day, it was announced that Koyama of NEWS will serve as the main caster Monday through Thursday on NTV "news every". Julie also aims for several years ahead as well. In order not to crush KAT-TUN, Julie has planned ahead to groom Kamenashi into an Olympics newscaster.
Finally, they managed to get rid of the two "bad boys" in this group and full steam ahead for the new KAT-TUN...
