Staff were whispering about Junno‘s rise in popularity after his goods were sold-out way before other members during KAT-TUN’s Fan Meeting. When Junno’s goods got sold-out, fans still waited in line and some started “booing!” when no new goods arrived; staffs agreed that they miscalculated Junno’s popularity. Insiders commented that Junno’s popularity is because of “Legal High” drama where fans finds his character delicious.
"Johnnys agency carefully calculated the stock according to the popularity. Of course considering the popularity aspect, the one with the most goods produced is Kamenashi. -Entertainment PR executive. While Taguchi's good was produced half of that amount.
That kind of balance has been decided by looking at the order of popularity, Johnnys will be pleased with the sold out, but there are increasing complaints from the fans who wanted to buy the sold out goods. However this is obviously due to Taguchi's sudden soaring popularity.
"It is the effect of Legal High drama! Taguchi's tasty image is not bad at all! So his fans soared up high!." Those are the words of fans.
Publication officials/staff who is in charge of the goods was surprised with the amount of sales and also said that "I was getting worried seeing the protest from fans."
