On September 3, TV personality and bodywork therapist Fungo updated his SNS “X” (formerly Twitter) account. He unreservedly unleashed his ultra-tongue about a program by Hitoshi Matsumoto, a senior member of Yoshimoto Kogyo, his old employer.
He attached a screen shot of “Matsumoto to Nakai” (Fuji TV), in which Hitoshi Matsumoto and Masahiro Nakai are the MCs, to his X account.
What’s the fun in this talk?
and wrote a rant.
The show is a talk show in which the guests appear separately from Matsumoto and Nakai, and they all talk together. The guests that day were Ryusei Yokohama and Tenshin Nasukawa.
On the website
《Yokohama Ryusei, starring in the next year’s Taiga, appeared on the show! Are you aware of actors of your generation? What are the worries you have? Tenshin Nasukawa, a childhood friend, talks about their boyhood and personal life, and Matsumoto and Ryusei have a serious mitt-attack.
The show was highly anticipated, but it did not meet the expectations of the audience.
It is not only that he thinks the show is “boring,” but also that the show has noticeably stalled. When Shingo Katori met Masahiro Nakai for the first time, the show became a hot topic in the public’s mind and received a high individual viewership rating of 7% (10.5% for households).
However, perhaps there was a limit to what could be developed with only a topical figure, and recently the individual viewership ratings have been wandering around 2-3%. It would still be more popular if just Matsumoto-san and Nakai-san were talking, but the guests are hit or miss, and considering the two’s fees, it will be very difficult if the ratings continue to be this low” (TV station official).
(A TV station official) “Enjoygo received some comments from the general public in the comments of X.” “Which person are you talking to?
“Which person are you talking to?
When asked, “Who are you talking to?
Nasukawa,” he answered simply, “Nasukawa. Still, the fact that he could say so clearly on a program for which Matsumoto and Nakai, two of his seniors, are the billboards is something that only a “freelance TV personality” can do.
Speaking of fun, when the topic of sexual harassment by Korean DJ SODA at an event in Osaka came up, he showed his uninhibited behavior,
What is this DJ SODA? What is it with DJ SODA?
You don’t have to come to Japan anymore.
When the post went up in flames, he posted the following message
I’ll erase it!
He then went on to extinguish the flames by saying, “I’ll erase this post!
He has not been active in show business since he left Yoshimoto in 1919, and his bodywork salon is thriving, so on August 8, he announced that he would “retire from show business as well. X is still posting a lot. I guess he can’t let go of SNS as a tool to promote himself.
In 2001, when he was at the height of his popularity with gags such as “love injection,” he was arrested on suspicion of assaulting and beating up his ex-boyfriend, who was a valet at his personal office.
Ten years have passed since then, and earlier this year
Look at this! This is her ex-boyfriend from the previous incident.
He posted two shots of himself and his partner. This is an unconventional way of life that would be unthinkable for an ordinary celebrity.
She is a “flaming celebrity” without any discovery, but it might be more interesting to have such a stimulating presence in the entertainment industry. ……
