My First Rumor Mill, I had a hard time filtering out and getting the right info, and making them short enough, but I guess I can’t make it as short as it was before. But I hope you guys wouldn’t mind taking a bit more time on my posts ^^
Involved parties are: Matsumoto Jun, Sakurai Sho, Okada Junichi, Nakai Masahiro, Tegoshi Yuya and Koyama Keiichiro.
- 99.9’s Twitter account might have bought Twitter followers?
Some users are saying that the account for the drama had a considerable increase of followers on twitter on the 27th, around evening. And that most of the followers seems to be foreigners, and do not look like Arashi‘s Matsumoto Jun’s fans. They are also implying that the people in charge bought followers to make up for the fact that Jun might be losing to Ohno Satoshi’s drama. Right now, “99.9‘s” twitter account as about 92.5K followers while Sekai Ichi Muzukashii Koi’s account has about 102K followers.
I checked the followers, and boy, I only saw Japanese accounts, and scroll so much I gave up. If anything, I blame the marketing team for not promoting Jun’s drama as much as Ohno’s. We’ve had two segments of “Ohno Satoshi’s Tsukutte Miyou” with the cast for the drama, and even if Jun went on Abunai Yakai, I did not know that he was there to promote the drama until I saw the twitter post about it on the website. So don’t worry too much guys, people just like to talk.

- Sakurai Sho rumored to be dating for a year now
This rumor, even to professionals in the entertainment industry, seems to be pretty legit. The girl seems to be an OL in her mid-20s, who looks like Okina Megumi and works at Ferrari. As what Japanese people do, we will name her A-san.
Rumor has it that the two have met a year ago through mutual friends, and Sakurai Sho introduced her to a salon when she mentioned that she had problems with stiff neck and that’s how they sparked, or so it seems. That’s a weird way to starting dating but heyyy, everyone got their tricks. Sakurai didn’t accompany her to the salon, but some says that they clicked very well, and the girl got drunk over his bocchan charms? They would usually only meet up at Sakurai’s apartment so there wouldn’t be any pictures of them.
According to the source, she’s a striking beauty with big round eyes and white skin. What’s interesting here is whether or not they are aiming for marriage or not. But the agency wouldn’t approve of Sakurai getting married just yet, Arashi is still selling a lot, so I guess there’s nothing for the fans who wanted to married Sakurai to worry about just yet.

- Nakai Masahiro & Tegoshi Yuya suspected of using drugs?
Last month, the famous Kiyohara Kazuhiro has been arrested for illegal drug use. After that, there were rumors saying that a few days before he was arrested, he had gone to a restaurant and got drunk and spilled some beans about other users. He mentioned a pro baseball player, an A-list singer and another A-list talent who would always be appearing on TV. He also said that there are people whom you wouldn’t think are taking drugs .
Among all the names rumored celebrities, SMAP‘s Nakai Masahiro was found on the list. Other names include: the Downtown Duo, Takashi Okamura, Tamura Atsushi, Ariyoshi Hiroiki. Arita Teppei and Nakamura Hidoyuki.
Rumors also flows that the next one to get arrested would be NEWS‘s Tegoshi Yuya. Insiders with police connections claim that the next one to be arrested, X, is from a group known for their vocal prowess. X also is known for being a heartthrob and have been constantly in the media for his romantic escapades, especially for his connections with AKB48 group members.
You can only think of Tegoshi Yuya after all those details. But I don’t believe that Tegoshi would touch drugs. He might love to party, but he knows to not get involved with dangerous things. Hopefully the investigations wraps up soon so their names stay clear.
- Okada Junichi might be marrying before MatsuJun
V6‘s Okada Junichi has been linked for a while now with Miyazaki Aoi, and now some of insiders believe that Okada is in love with her, long enough to eve marry her. While Arashi‘s Matsumoto Jun and Inoue Mao might have a bigger chance of receiving the approval from the agency, Okada might have some trouble since the scandal with Miyazaki was an adultery scandal, which is why the agency might be hesitating in the issue.
Considering that the rumor of Maotsujun lasts for more than 10 years with no pictures or tangible proof that they are in fact dating, I question the credibility of this one. But watching Okada these days makes me wonder, because he does look a bit like he wants to get married. But please don’t cite me on this, its just a gut feeling.

- Koyama Keiichiro as a NTV exclusive announcer
It is rumored that NTV (Nihon Terebi) likes NEWS‘s Koyama Keiichiro a lot, and that they are asking the agency whether they can get Koyama as their exclusive announcer. It’s been said that the NEWS member blends very well in their work environment, just like an employee. They also said that inside NTV, Koyama actually have a better reputation than Arashi‘s Sakurai Sho.
