Various theories went around, like Shingo Katori who has illegitimate child rumors, Jun Matsumoto who's rumored to be with Mao Inoue, and Tomoya Nagase and the commoner who looks like Katopan, among others.
And there's also an unconfirmed source on Twitter claiming that the initials are "K" and "O".
There's a possibility that this was based on reports from Osaka's Hapikuru! and Hokkaido's U-gata Terebi last December claiming that SMAP's Tsuyoshi Kusanagi and AKB48's Yuko Oshima are in a relationship.
An insider analyzes the situation:
"If Shuukan Josei really has an exclusive scoop on this then it's either a family member spilled it out, or there's a possibility of a shotgun wedding. They even said that it's so huge that it could make one's hand tremble. They really must have a huge scoop in their possession."
"However, it's pretty rare for these tabloids to have a scoop about a marriage, and not a love affair. They even leaked it out 1 week before the release of their magazine, with some easy hints. This is actually unheard of."
"If one has a huge scoop, it's common knowledge that they'd be very wary so the information will not leak out to other entities. Some people are already calling it a 'solicited article'."
- あったらまず報道してるだろwBut they probably would have reported it first if something like this was true LOL
- 草なぎと大島が結婚したら笑うｗI'm going to laugh if Kusanagi and Oshima will get married
- 一ヶ月くらい前に新垣結衣と草なぎ君が伊豆の旅館にお忍びで泊まってるの見たぞ。Yeah, and I saw Yui Aragaki and Kusanagi-kun staying over secretly at a hotel in Izu a month ago
- たかが芸能人が誰とヤろうが誰の子を産もうが関係ないだろｗまるで後生の一大事とか、馬鹿かこの記事はｗWho cares about who banged who and who gave birth to whose child?
Is this article crazy for making it sound like it's such a huge matter?
- 大島優子って山下と付き合ってるってコピペが一時期拡散されてたけど草なぎと噂あんの？There was a time when a copy & paste meme about Yuko Oshima and Yamashita dating circulated the net, but were there ever any rumors with Kusanagi?
- 松潤と井上真央なら本当に祝福するな。松潤大好きだからつくしと道明寺カップルがリアルになるんだよねでも松潤にはまだまだ結婚してほしくないけどI'll truly give my blessings if it's MatsuJun and Mao Inoue.
I like MatsuJun so I'll still support him, and the Domyouji couple will become a reality.
But I still don't want MatsuJun to get married.
- 超人気アイドルとか言いつつ世間にはあまり浸透してないような若いグループだったり、あるいはTOKIOの国分当たりだったりするのがオチな気がしないでもない。They said it's a super popular idol, but I still get that feeling that it'll be someone from a young group whom the public still aren't that well aware of, or even TOKIO's Kokubun.
- この二組はないだろThere's no way that it'll be one of these 2 pairs
- 草薙くんを誰か貰ってくださいジャニーズで一番心配してるCan anyone please have Kusanagi-kun?
He's the one I'm most worried about in Johnny's.
- 別にいいんじゃね。みんな結婚してもおかしくない歳だし。遅すぎる奴もいるじゃん。I don't see a problem with this.
It's not strange for them to already get married at their age.
There are just some who are too late in getting married.
- 草なぎと大島なら確かに震えるわ共に現役の人気アイドルだから橘あややとは話のでかさが違うIf it is Kusanagi and Oshima, it will definitely be something that will make you tremble.
They're both active idols so it's a lot different from Tachibana and Ayaya's case. (Related post HERE)
- 草は大物だけど歳も歳だし嵐だな。Kusanagi's a bigshot, but he's not that young anymore.
Must definitely be someone from Arashi.
- もうすぐ24時間テレビだから大麻くんの時の岡田准一熱愛みたいな事になるだけなんじゃないの？どうせなら風間の発表遅らせれば良かっただけの話だと思うｗ24-Terebi is just around the corner, so isn't this just like Junichi Okada's romance scandal?
Or they could have just delayed Kazama's wedding announcement.
- カメナシでFAKamenashi, final answer
- SMAPはキムタク以外プライベート冷めきってるよな中居が結婚とか考えられんわEveryone other than KimuTaku in SMAP have pretty cold private lives. I can't imagine Nakai getting married at all.
- 草なぎって、アッー！じゃなかったの？Hm? So Kusanagi's not gay?
- 嵐はあと10年は結婚っできんぞArashi won't be able to marry for another 10 years
- 草薙はネタにはするけどキライじゃないからAKBと絡めるとかやめてほしいWe may be making fun of Kusanagi but I don't hate him, so I hope they stop putting his name together with AKB.
- 真央&潤ならお似合いだから祝福したるわI'd be happy if it's Mao and Jun, they look so good together
- SMAP、TOKIO、Ｖ6岡田以外はもう結婚してもいいだろAnyone other than SMAP, TOKIO, and V6 Okada can get married already
- 誰にしろ今結婚しないとならない理由は出来婚しかないよな赤西とメイサやWhoever it is, the only reason for them to get married at a time like this would be because of the guy knocking up the girl.
Like Akanishi and Meisa.
- 超人気アイドルなんて現在はいませんよBut there aren't any popular idols in this day and age
- まぁ一般人相手の香取とか長瀬だと手までは震えないわな相手の女も旬のタレントじゃないとIf it's just Katori or Nagase and a commoner, it won't make our hands tremble that much.
The other party has to be a popular actress.
- スクープなら直ぐに情報出るよ引っ張る意味がないIf it's a scoop, some kind of information's bound to come out.
There's no point in dragging it out further.
- 草なぎ優子かかっこいいなｗYuko Kusanagi, huh.
That sounds cool w
- 草薙先生はゲイだろ？Isn't Kusanagi-sensei gay?
- 草なぎって結婚しても人気落ちないだろうむしろ子どももいる方が、ますます良い人っぽくなるｗI don't think Kusanagi's popularity will drop even if he gets married.
He'll actually look more like a good man if he has a kid.
- ジャニーズでも手が震えるぐらいとなればまずＳＭＡＰで次点が嵐ＳＭＡＰならついにこの日が！で嵐はよく事務所が許したな的にIf it's something really huge, it'll have to be someone from SMAP. Next is Arashi.
If it's someone from SMAP, people will just think, "So this day has finally come!"
If it's someone from Arashi, people will think, "I'm amazed the agency approved of this".
- 例えばももクロが結婚だったらびっくりするなIf MomoClo gets married, I'd get surprised.
- どうせ国分か坂本ってとこだろ。リーダーだったらジャニーズ事務所に花贈るわwI think it's either Kokubun or Sakamoto.
If it's Leader, I'll send a bouquet of flowers to Johnny's office.
- 草なぎくんが女性と結婚するなんてあり得ないじゃんｗまあ、大島優子なら偽装もひきうけそうだねｗBut there's no way Kusanagi-kun will marry a woman LOL
Well, I do think Yuko Oshima would accept a fake marriage.
- 国分の可能性はあるかなあ城島リーダーこそ本当にお婿にいこうよもう４２歳だよ・・・・・I wonder if it really is Kokubun.
Joshima Leader is the one who should already marry into someone's family.
You're already 42...
- ジャニが簡単に結婚許すわけねーだろ風間が結婚したばっかなのに、事務所的に連続を許すわけがないMr. Johnny won't allow a marriage to happen that easily.
Kazama just got married, I don't think they'll allow consecutive marriages. (Related posts HERE and HERE)
- ジャニーズって結婚したければ今後自分はどういう方針でやっていくのかというのをプレゼンしないといけないらしいなジャニオタの友達が言ってたわIn Johnny's, I heard that if you want to get married, you have to make a presentation on how you would like to proceed and how you would like to market yourself. That's what a Jani-ota friend of mine said.
- KinKi、嵐は人気下がるやろな福山なんかも結婚したらBBAが自殺しそうIf it's KinKi or Arashi, their popularity will definitely go down.
If someone like Fukuyama were to get married, I think the grannies will commit suicide.
- キムタク静香以来の大型カップルくるかWill we have another big couple like KimuTaku and Shizuka?
- 俺のガッキーが持って行かれるなら、中居キムタクのような超大物か、岡田のような超男前か、櫻井のような才色兼備かじゃないと納得出来んぞ草なぎや坂本やリーダーでは納得できん！If my Gakky were to be taken in by someone, I won't allow it if isn't a huge name like KimuTaku or Nakai, if he isn't a super ikemen like Okada, or if he isn't someone with both brains and looks like Sakurai.
I won't accept it if it's only someone like Kusanagi, Sakamoto, or Leader!
- 芸能人ごときが何をしようが、手が震えることはないわwBut whatever these celebrities do, it won't make my hand tremble LOL
- キムタクが結婚した時は速報テロップが出たしnhkでもやってたな今そんな事になりそうなのは浅田真央ぐらいかなWhen KimuTaku got married, there were newsflashes everywhere, and even NHK went for the story. Someone who can cause that kind of phenomenon right now would be Mao Asada.
- 今なら新垣か長澤あたりだろびつくりするのはI'd only get surprised these days if it's Aragaki or Nagasawa.

- 国分とあいこKokubun and Aiko
- 超人気ジャニなら嵐かね…嵐櫻井と明日香キララとかなら確かに驚くがIf they're saying super popular Johnny's then it's Arashi...

- 堺と菅野なんてこんな前置きもなくいきなりスポーツ紙一面だったし普通にガセじゃないの小出しにしてわざわざこんな間を置く必要も無いでしょSakai and Kanno's marriage was announced on the front pages of these sports papers without any premonitions.
I think this one is fake.
There's no point in releasing info little by little like this.
- 錦戸とガッキーだろうなMight be Nishikido and Gakky
