I really don’t want to use the word “scandal” but since only in Japan can a normal male and female relationship be labeled as “scandal” so I decided to go with it.
As you all know, Arashi‘s Ohno Satoshi has been involved in a “scandal” after FRIDAY exposed his relationship with a former actress right before Arashi’s “BLAST in MIYAGI“. Lots of things have been said here and there and even the innocent pug has to be dragged into the issue. Sorry, dog lover here.
According to media reports, before the curtain rises for Arashi’s BLAST, Ohno “apologized for the sadness he caused to the fans. He regrets his thoughtless behavior and will also reflect on his actions”. Furthermore, Ohno made a clarification on a misunderstanding, citing that he’s not in cohabitation and not in a relationship with the woman, who is just a friend, and that he will no longer meet with (her) to avoid any misunderstanding.
This news really broke my heart. Seriously, Ohno is 34 years old and he’s making an apology as if he’s a minor caught on a sex scandal. There’s no reason for Ohno to apologized to fans and more so, those fans should be the one who should reflect on their actions! Oh well, damn you Johnny when you were just talking about allowing Johnny’s in “marriageable age” to get married a few weeks ago. In times like this, I think that girl idols are luckier than guys since they can get married, have kids, and moved on with their lives while the male idols will forever be saddled with their selfish fans.
