The “King & Prince” Ren Nagase’s “tearful confession” is causing a stir. Prince” Ren Nagase’s “tearful confession” is causing a stir. –The “King & Prince” Ren Nagase’s “tearful confession” has caused quite a stir.
Kimpuri members Shiyou Hirano, Yuta Kishi, and Yuta Jinguji will leave the group on May 22 next year. It was announced that each of them will leave Johnny’s office.
How did this happen?
While only speculations are walking alone, Nagase, who remained in the group, spoke on the November 10 broadcast of Bunka Hoso “King & Prince Nagase Ren’s Life”. Prince Nagase Ren’s RadioGARDEN on the November 10 broadcast of “King & Prince Nagase Ren’s RadioGARDEN”.
In the program, which started about five minutes earlier than usual, Nagase said
I apologize for the surprise announcement.
I apologize for the surprise announcement. The group had been discussing the matter.
We have been discussing the group’s fifth anniversary in detail,” she said. In the process, we all felt that our individual views on the group’s activities, including overseas activities, were slightly different.
When the three members asked Nagase about leaving the group, he replied, “At least I’ll be with the group for a couple of years.
Nagase tried to persuade them to let us work together for a few years at least.
But they were adamant about it. The members of Kinpuri are known for their close relationship with each other, but Nagase said, “Especially Shiyou, we’ve been together for a long time.
The longer they stay together, the harder it is for them to get to know each other. The longer you stay with someone, the more you don’t know how they think. The longer you stay with someone, the more you don’t know how they think, and there is no way you can touch their deepest thoughts.
Nagase was at a loss for words.
Nagase was at a loss for words when he said the following.
From the time I heard that the three of them wanted to leave until the announcement on November 4, it was pretty quick. It was a short period of time…”
Although Nagase knew that the three members were firm in their intention, he may have had a faint hope that they might change their minds at some point.
Once the office made the announcement, however, the three members were not sure what would happen until then. But once the announcement is made, there is no going back. In terms of the timing of the announcement, I think they could have delayed it a little longer.
The TBS drama series “Kurosagi” starring Hirano is airing in the October season. On November 9, five days after the announcement of his departure, a new song, “Tsukiyomi/Saiyori,” was released.
Johnny’s is an office that values “flow. They could have at least waited until December, when the drama series of Mr. Hirano, a core member of the group, was to end.
It was also bad of them to make a negative announcement before the release of the new song. Thanks to this, the new song has become a big hit, but it seems a little strange for Johnny’s’s, an agency that has always put the fans’ feelings first.
Speaking of which, Hideaki Takizawa also tendered his resignation to Johnny’s through his agent in mid-September. The office consoled him, but his resignation was approved by the board of directors on September 26.
I have the impression that both Kimpli and Mr. Takizawa decided to leave the company easily. It may be that those who leave don’t follow…” (A reporter from a sports newspaper)
At the end of the year, there are big music programs coming up, including the NHK Kohaku Uta Gassen (Red and White Singing Contest). In the words of a Kimpli fan
“At the very least, they should have made the announcement at the beginning of the year.
I guess so. Nagase tearfully said on a radio program
I wondered if there was any point in doing it with the two of us, but we made the decision. I don’t want to think I made a mistake.
I don’t want to think I made a mistake. The hands of the clock will never turn back. Fans will have no choice but to keep their eyes on the five members of KINPRISE.
