This all started from his picture leaking onto the Internet. It's actually an ordinary picture where 4 young men are sitting in a room, but the problem is one of them is holding a Smirnoff while canned Chuhai cocktails are seen on the floor. And judging from one person holding a pinata with "Congratulations" written on it, it can be deduced that they gathered here to celebrate an occasion.
"One of the guys in the picture is Mizuki Kobayashi, 18 years old. He's in 3rd year highschool, and a member of Johnny's Jr. Netizens have already identified that it's him thanks to his facial features and his clothes, leading to some people saying, "I never thought that he was such a foolish Jr. member", "KobaMizu is finished with this". Kobayashi is one of the Jr. talents who are being pushed for, as he's a regular on NHK's Test no Hanamichi and was in a pretty good position on Johnny's Jr. Land (BS Sky Prefect). He might not be in direct possession of the alcoholic beverage judging by the picture, but just by being in the company of other people drinking will lead to some sort of punishment." - (well-informed Johnny's writer)

- なーに、ジャニーズ社長がいつものようにもみ消してくれるから無問題！No problem here, President Johnny will erase all the facts like he always has!
- スミノフをボトルてアル中ってレベルじゃねーA Smirnoff bottle? That's not on the level of alcoholic, yo.

これは怖いThis is scary
- 表沙汰にならなかった不祥事もあるはずなのに、表沙汰になったものだけで近年のジャニーズはボロボロだよな。そもそも社長からして問題あるわけだし。I'm sure that there are a lot of cases that weren't made public, but just with these ones that were, it looks like Johnny's is in shambles recently.
The president himself has problems as well.
- 女性関係ならともかく、犯罪はだめだねｼﾞｬﾆはその点厳しいよねWomen problems, yes. But crime is a much bigger no-no.
Johnny's is pretty strict in that respect.
- 楽屋にコーラぶちまけてYOUTUBEにあげたジュニアは結局解雇されたの？So what about the Jr. who poured cola all over the dressing room and uploaded it on YouTube, was he terminated?
- >1999年に大坂俊介・穴沢真啓・浜田一男・尾身和樹といった人気Jr．の飲酒・喫煙が週刊誌に大々的に報じられ、4人とも事務所を去っている。この場に滝沢もいたらしいがおとがめなし売れてるやつには甘い>There was also Shusuke Osaka, Masahiro Anazawa, Kazuo Hamada, and Kazuki Omi, Johnny's Jr. members who were scooped by a tabloid in 1999 and consequently left the agency.
Takizawa was apparently with them but he got off the hook.
They're pretty lax when it comes to people who are popular.
- タッキーレベルの人気とジャニーさんからの寵愛があれば隠蔽してもらえるIf your popularity was on the level of Tackey and if you had Johnny-san's affection then they'll cover it up for you
- しかしまぁ、このくらいの年なら、飲酒したことのある奴の方が大半だろ、ホントのトコはｗBut in reality, majority of the kids at this age have already experienced drinking w
- まぁダメだけど18ならチューハイやスミノフぐらい大目にみてやれよI don't think it'll happen, but they should forgive an 18 y/o for something as petty as Chuhai and Smirnoff.
- 関ジャニも昔結構やんちゃしてた気がするけど残ってるぞ。タッキーの同期辺りはまとめて粛正されてたり基準がよく分からんな。Kanjani were also pretty wild in the past but they're still around. The guys who came together with Tackey though were punished altogether, so I really don't know that agency's standards.
- なぜかもうジャニって魅力感じなくなったなジャニーズ系という言葉ももはや古臭いI don't feel any appeal in Johnny's anymore. The word "Johnny's-kei" is already a thing of the past.
- これってジャニーズ辞めたいから写真撮らせたんじゃね？Maybe he had his picture taken on purpose because he already wants to quit Johnny's?
- ジャニーズに清廉潔白なやつなんておらんやろThere aren't any people who are upright and honest in Johnny's.
- テレビで一回も見たことないのに辞める辞めないとか俺完全に置いてけぼりI've never even seen him once on TV and you're talking about him quitting or not. I feel totally left behind.
- 大麻はアヘ顔だったが大麻の証拠写真じゃないからなこれは酒ビン持ってるから逃れられない個人的には酒くらいいいだろと思うがそれ許すとどんどん崩れて外で醜態さらすことになるから厳しいんだろうなTaima (Ohno) had that high-looking face but it wasn't enough evidence for drug use. This one has a liquor bottle so there's no escaping from this one.
I personally don't see anything wrong with sake-wine and the like, but if you forgive something like this, then these talents will lose control and expose more shameful acts outside so the agency is keeping it strict.
- 手越もたくさん流出してるけど全然大丈夫じゃん守ってくれるよTegoshi himself has a lot of leaked stuff but he's totally fine.
They'll protect this guy.
- 草なぎくらいハジけちゃえば印象に残るのにHe would have remained in people's minds if he was as crazy as Kusanagi
- テストの花道で見たことあるけどこの子ジャニなのかｗ何かマジでジャニの顔面偏差値下がりまくりだなI saw this guy on Test no Hanamichi and I didn't know he was from Johnny's w
Seriously, I get the feeling that the average facial score of the Johnny's members nowadays have gone down.
- あっさり切られる人間と完全スルーの人間 なにが違うのWhat's the difference between people who are easily cut from the people who have things like this ignored?
- 仲居くんの時代とかネットなくて助かっただろうなｗNakai-kun must be grateful that there was no Internet yet during his time w
