A dark cloud over the new departure of Johnny’s?
Mr. Jun Fukuda, who is considered the most likely candidate for president of a new agent company to be established over the issue of sexual assault at the former Johnny’s’s office, deleted his X account by November 8.
Mr. Fukuda is said to be well versed in U.S. agent contracts, having served as president of a Sony affiliate in the past. He is currently the president of the consulting company “Speedy,” and in ’16, after actress Nun (formerly Reina Noh) went independent, he signed an agent contract with the company and obtained various commercials and other work.
The former Johnny’s’s office was renamed “SMILE-UP.” and Noriyuki Higashiyama became the new president, and was scheduled to serve as president of the agent company as well, but he declined due to public outcry. Suddenly, Mr. Fukuda’s appointment surfaced.
Brain scientist Kenichiro Mogi, who is a close friend of Fukuda’s, appeared on “Sunday Japon” (TBS) on the 5th.
He said, “I’m managing Non-san, so I’ve seen how she’s doing, and I think she’s a very capable person. I can trust him.
He also said that Mogi is a very trustworthy person. When Mogi sent a message to Mr. Fukuda about becoming president, Mr. Fukuda responded, “If it happens, please support me.
Mr. Fukuda responded, “If it comes to fruition, please support me.
If it comes to fruition, please support me,” Mogi said.
It is true, however, that there are fans of the former Johnny’s faction who are opposed to Mr. Fukuda’s appointment.
In the past, when former SMAP members Goro Inagaki, Tsuyoshi Kusanagi, and Shingo Katori left the company, Fukuda had made critical remarks about the nature of Johnny’s office.
“#Against Jun Fukuda’s appointment as president.”
“#No to Fukuda” and “#No to Fukuda”.
and “#Fukuda is no good” were among the hashtags used to attack Mr. Fukuda.
In the meantime, Mr. Fukuda deleted his X account and suddenly disappeared from the social networking site.
Mr. Fukuda deleted his account at a time when the new company name and organization of the agent company were about to be announced. He may have deleted his account to “concentrate on the work of the new company,” but if he had given up the presidency because he was fed up with the fierce protests of the anti-talent, SMILE would be in trouble again.
The remaining talents may find their jobs in limbo again, or the period when they are not allowed to renew their commercials may be extended. The fans, known as “old Jani-wotaku,” are hoping for a “comeback” for Keiko Julie. It is getting chaotic.
If she is deleting her account in order to concentrate on her new company, it would be nice if she could say a few words to her followers who have been a great help to her so far. ……
There are talents such as Junichi Okada and Toma Ikuta who became independent without an agency contract with Johnny’s. They are no longer involved with Johnny’s. They are no longer in a relationship with Johnny’s. They are no longer in a relationship with the new company. Is there any merit in being associated with the former Johnny’s anymore? It would be unfortunate if Mr. Fukuda feels that he has been “left on the short end of the stick”…
