I know I must be a little late or something but it has come to my attention recently that Nakajima Yuto of Hey! Say! JUMP has recently released a statement about recent rumors about him. Now at first, what I thought was this was the rumours regarding him and model/actress Ohgo Suzuka which he co-starred in a drama along with fellow Hey! Say! JUMP members Yamada Ryosuke, Chinen Yuri and Aroka Daiki a few years back. Since the two were high school classmates the rumour had been about the two dating in secret in Horikoshi.
The rumour was immediately shot down with Horikoshi's harsh school policies and the fact the Johnny's Jimusho has a strict dating policy with their idols. However, the rumours did not die down quickly as there were reports of the two even going to school together. Now to be honest, I do not know what to believe. I have to admit I don't really give a care. But I am writing this out of the possibility that I do not want my most favorite boy band in the entire universe to be reduced from 9 members to 8. As it is, they have taken away my baby brother, Morimoto Ryuutaro (though I do believe he will make a comeback) and it will be even more saddening if my favorite little (yes, little) drummer boy also gets the boot.
Now people might say that Nakajima Yuto is a valuable asset in JE. Well, technically he is a valuable asset. BUT, he isn't valuable enough that if things get any worst, Johnny would actually give him the boot. And please, I do not want to hear the same old "AKANISHI JIN" case because Jin is actually an asset to Johnny he wouldn't kick out due to the fact he's released in the U.S. Now that is something Johnny can look over. But if it's a freshly graduated high school boy just dating someone from his school, I doubt Johnny has the guts to probably keep him in.
Now, the whole purpose of this blog (
more like a rant) is to show my stand in this rumour case. Like I said earlier, I really don't care if Nakajima Yuto likes someone or not. I was however, trying to believe in my heart that he was still single and that this would all be a really BIG misunderstanding. However, there are some hints/clues or whatever you would like to call it that PROBABLY (please take note of the words. I am trying to express this as carefully as I can) Yuto is trying to hide something and he got caught for it.
The sudden public appearance of Hey! Say! JUMP in Tokyo Disneyland (Disney-Sea or what ever) is just a decoy to get attention away from Yuto and into the 6 crazily hot and smexy guys walking around Disneyland in public. (correct me if my figures are wrong)
Below is a statement from Nakajima Yuto sent to the press via email.
"Every rumor can be wrong or true. But for me,it’s not bad for a person to like someone.But JE has rules and we should follow it for our fans All I can say is let us not judge people by acts. Hey Say Jump loves the fans so much we will always do what right. Thank you for your cooperation." -Yuto Nakajima
I know this isn't suppose to mean anything, but in my opinion, it sounds like Nakajima Yuto is hiding something and it looks like he quite serious about it. Do you think he could be hiding the fact he could be dating someone? However, even though if Yuto did like someone, like he said, it isn't wrong and it is completely natural for us to like someone. I would support Yuto in all his actions and stuff. But I do wish he does not get kicked out. His drumming grew on me (I just love it) and I would be depressed if it would be gone.
Now, how does this relate to the recent events?
Yesterday afternoon, Nakajima Yuto (maybe it is him. I don't know!!) tweeted with a SIGH. Yes, a sigh. Though surprisingly no one replied to that tweet until a fan did five minutes later. One minute after the fan replied, Yuto might have indirectly replied to the fan with a "I don't want to talk about it now. Maybe some other time". My say?
OK, back to serious matters.
Probably that time Yuto had made an important decision in life and was probably depressed, most likely having picked JE over the girl (if there was a girl in the first place). I know it must be sad giving up something important in his life for the sake of JE and the fans; this just shows us how much he loves his career and loyal is to Johnny. And for that, I salute you Yuto.
Now, another interesting fact about the Disneyland trip. Or rather, what I observed from the papa pics (don't judge me). So far, I know that Inoo Kei, Yamada Ryosuke, Yabu Kota, Okamoto Keito, Chinen Yuri and Takaki Yuya were the only ones in Disneyland, the excuse was to celebrate the 22nd birthday of Takaki Yuya. That would leave three members out. We all know that Yaotome Hikaru is currently busy with his current drama and that Arioka Daiki is also busy with a drama for some sort. Alibis have been established for the two.
But where was Nakajima Yuto the entire time?
My guess: Probably talking to old man Johnny about the rumour. Another back up for my hypothesis is that during the Disneyland trip, all looked serious and worried about something. Minimal smiles and papa pics of a very worried Keito was around. This could be because he was alarmed about something, or maybe concerned for the well being of a friend. And, Yamada Ryosuke ignoring fangirls?
LOL, I just had to do that 9gag reference. Cause it would be impossible for them to ignore fans and they are Japanese....-
Back to the main issue.
I am not bashing Yuto or am I trying to make these rumours worse. But because people can't stop talking about it, I had to make my stand. You can bash me if you want and I probably wouldn't care since we are all entitled to our own opinions. I will support Yuto in whatever decisions he makes. Whether the girl be Suzuka or not, let me just say she is very lucky to have caught the attention of Yuto.
Comments below are open for anonymous users as well. I would love to hear your opinions as well regarding this issue. I don't believe Yuto is courting someone but it could be possible.
But before leaving this blog to let you all ponder about stuff, let me remind you.
We still don't know the truth.
