Johnny's WEST is a 7-member group who just made their debut on April 23 with the single "Eejanaika".
Fujii was a minor aged 18 at the time of the act but was seen smoking and drinking in the picture that is published by Bunshun. A wasted Fujii also destroyed the woman's cellphone with his bare hands on the same day.
Johnny's Jimusho is known to be strict with underaged members who drink and smoke. Bunshun tried to obtain comments from the Jimusho but got no response.
A scandal immediately after their debut www
They've really done it right on the day of their debut.
That's why they should've just pushed through with the initial plan of having only 4 members instead of 7.
He just put Johnny-san's face to shame
Johnny's WEST increases to 7 members! The members themselves directly persuaded the president.
February 5, 2014
The members for Johnny's new unit Johnny's WEST who are set to release their debut CD in April have been officially named. Apart from the initial 4 members Akito Kiriyama (24), Junta Nakama (26), Daiki Shigeoka (21), and Nozomu Kotaki (17), 3 new members, namely Takahiro Hamada (25), Tomohiro Kamiyama (20), and Ryusei Fujii (20), have been added to the group. The members made their public appearance at the dress rehearsal of the theater play Naniwa Samurai Hello TOKYO!! on the 5th at the Nissay Theater in Tokyo.
Johnny's announced during the New Year's Countdown Live that the unit would be making their debut with 4 members. The name announced at that time was Johnny's WEST4, but was later changed to Johnny's WEST "because the first name given to them didn't sound too good".
Nakama, the eldest of the group, commented "Somewhere inside of me, I felt determined to push through with this project when we were told to make our debut with 4 members". But when they performed at a Kansai Johnny's Jr. concert after the New Year with the other 3, he thought that "We have to go with this group in order to bring out the best in each one of us". Nakama revealed: "We directly negotiated with the president (to have the 3 other members officially join the group), and Johnny-san said, 'If You-tachi really think that this is for the best then there's no mistaking it. Just remember to hold responsibility for this."
I saw the picture.
He was totally smoking in it. Yerrrr out!
So this is the picture.
He's holding a cigar in his hand, right? Though you really can't see it well.
Heaven and hell at the same time...

His sisters are in E-girls, right?
The E-girls might also take damage from this.
Oh, the brother of Shuuka and Karen of the E-girls.
I feel sorry for the younger sisters with an article like this.
Younger sister Shuuka Fujii of E-girls
LOL, they look exactly like each other wwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww
Bunshun fears no one
With K-POP's decline, Johnny's suddenly bounced back with fierce momentum. EXILE too.
That's better than K-POP, though.
Bunshun kept this story under wraps and waited until the group's debut, huh.
It all just smells fishy to me, why just now when it happened 2 years ago?
If this exposé was true, then it's the end of the road for this guy who isn't even popular to begin with.
Ahh, I guess he does have the face of someone who'd do such a thing (；´Д｀)
How many Johnny groups now have lost a member right after their debut?
They won't be able to sing lyrics like "Eejanaika, eejanaika" anymore, huh
He's an amazing ikemen, but if you've got a tacky name then you'd just seem like a cheap host or something
He was the annoying guy in Miss Pilot who spoke the Kansai dialect. He actually looks worse in videos than in pictures.
Don't you guys think that Johnny's have too many violence and assault cases?
Every time I hear stories like this, I think:
"But the girls were willing to go with him to the hotel in the first place. What the heck is she talking about.".
Whatever you guys say here, it'll all be swept under the rug again www
Does this mean that he'll leave the group just after making his debut?
I think this is a rape case so they should go to the police instead
The woman probably went with the guy because he's an ikemen.
So the woman who went with him of her own free will doesn't run to the police, and instead sells off the story to a tabloid, huh.
Eejanaika lol www
My word, even a woman won't let an ikemen like this bang her if she isn't drunk? It must really be tough out there!
An announcement like this probably means the kid is getting the axe.
They would've tried to hide the facts if they wanted to protect him.
I think Johnny's is capable of suppressing this kind of article if they really wanted to.
So am I right in thinking that they've abandoned this kid?
It's just an everyday occurrence in showbiz.
Nothing to be surprised about.
