Can we see the five SMAP members together again? ……

The production of a special drama series “Kyobo” (Fuji TV) starring Takuya Kimura, a member of Johnny’s, has been postponed. The drama was scheduled to be shot this fall and broadcast next spring, but Fuji Television is postponing it due to “production problems” and “trouble in program production.

The reason for the postponement is unclear, but it is “well known” that it is solely due to the sponsor’s desire to address the issue of Johnny’s sexual assault. At the press conference held after new Johnny’s president Noriyuki Higashiyama took office, all of the commercial sponsors announced that they would not renew their contracts due to insufficient explanations and countermeasures.

Johnny’s will hold another press conference on October 2, but until we see how they respond, the production side may be stuck in the middle.

Takeshi Niinami, president of the Keizai Doyukai (Japan Association of Corporate Executives) and current president of Suntory HDD, stated at a press conference on September 12, “We should take a firm stand.

“We must take a firm stand,” he said.

He even stated clearly that he would “take a firm stance against Johnny’s.” “In fact,” he said, “I have already made a public statement about my previous work, ‘Kazama.

In fact, Suntory, Kao, and other companies sponsored the previous film, “Kazama Kimichika: Kyobo 0. However, both companies have announced that they will no longer use Johnny’s as a sponsor, citing their poor response this time.

There is a strong possibility that these sponsors were also attached to this special drama, and it is quite possible that the production may have been scuttled. If the sponsors have dropped out of the project, it will be necessary to find new sponsors, but it is doubtful if any will come forward at this time.

Kimura was also supposed to be the image character for Shiseido’s new commercial for high-end men’s cosmetics, but the magazine Shukan Bunshun reported that his plans had been scrapped.

On the other hand, the members of SMAP who parted ways with Kimura are …….

The “New Map” group of Goro Inagaki, Tsuyoshi Kusanagi, and Shingo Katori, which celebrated its sixth anniversary, announced that it would hold a fan club members-only event “NAKAMA to OSHOGATSU ~Hope to see you in 2024! The event will be held at the Nippon Budokan for the first time. Fans are delighted to see their first event at the Nippon Budokan,” said a reporter for a women’s magazine.

Katori and Masahiro Nakai co-starred in the first broadcast of “Matsumo to Nakai,” and Katori revealed that Nakai contacted him every day when he was on a two-month leave. Nakai was rumored to be seriously ill, but only Matsumoto Hitoshi and Katori discussed the details of his illness.

The original plan was for the five members of SMAP to leave Johnny’s, but Mr. Kimura abruptly removed the ladder and stayed with Johnny’s. That caused the group to “fall apart in the air,” Katori said. However, Mr. Kimura abruptly removed the ladder and remained at Johnny’s, which reportedly led to the “breakup” of the group.

In the broadcast of “Matsumo to Nakai,” the other members were mentioned, but it was impressive that not even the “K” word for Kimura was mentioned.

However, there is a possibility that the winds may be blowing in a different direction.

The reason is a picture that Katori posted on her Instagram page on March 22, titled “Pushy Life.

The picture was drawn using the five colors of the “SMAP” members: blue (Nakai), red (Kimura), pink (Inagaki), yellow (Kusanagi), and green (Katori). Nakai’s blue is in the middle, and Kimura’s red surrounds it in a large …….

Fans who saw it said

It makes me cry.
It’s the best.

The only one who still remains in the Japanese market is Kimura.

Kimura is the only remaining member of Johnny’s. However, the current situation at the office may provide “some” impetus for a SMAP reunion.
