On the 14th, KAT-TUN
's Kamenashi Kazuya
(25) participated in a press conference in Kawasaki city to talk about the upcoming Nihon TV
drama Yokai Ningen Bem
. Kamenashi stars in the drama, which will air on Saturdays at 9 pm beginning October 22.
Regarding the separation of fellow idols Yamashita Tomohisa
(26) and Nishikido Ryo
(26) from their former group, NEWS
, Kamenashi commented, "I think it's a decision they came to after working together for many years." The KAT-TUN member is particularly close to Yamashita after forming the temporary unit Shuji and Akira
in 2005 and together producing the hit single "Seishun Amigo
", but he relayed that he had not spoken to Yamashita about the split before the announcement was made.
Last year KAT-TUN saw the withdrawal of one of its members, Akanishi Jin
(27), but "the situations are different, so you can't compare the two", Kamenashi said. He shrugged off suggestions of his own departure from KAT-TUN, saying, "Absolutely not. There's zero chance of that."
Source: SanspoYou know it's getting bad when people start trying to predict the next idol to abandon their group. But on the bright side, Kame is apparently seen as of the same level as Jin, Yamapi, and Ryo. I just thought this was funny, and I wanted to translate it so you could appreciate the humor as well. :)Amanda
