yukitsubute: (SMAP group)

Hello my dear friends,

how are you doing? I wasn't online for the whole weekend, because I was on a short holiday trip together with [livejournal.com profile] lilly0.
We drove to Italy just to relax for one weekend. <3 We went to San Daniele where we booked a small B&B.
It was just perfect for a calm and relaxing time.

We went swimming in the river Tagliamento and we made a small walk around the Lago di Cornino:





It was really relaxing, and now I am back home and I still have two days holiday before I need to jump into work again. ;)


We had Internet in our B&B so we got the news about SMAP and their disbanding. It was really kind of shocking. I wasn't one of the fangirls who believed in something big this year, but I had the hope that they'd make a tour in autumn.

I don't understand their decision because: why now? Last year they had the big discussion because of leaving the agency and in the end all remained in Johnny's. Back then I thought: Okay, they have always had a problem with JE, but in the end they stayed in JE as a group. I always knew that they didn't like each other pretty much, but I had the feeling that they found a way to work together on a professional way. My feeling was always: Them against JE.

So I am a little bit confused right now. Why did they dsband now? What happened between them? My feeling is, that they ended in a huge fight which led to the end of SMAP. I just worry that they made harum-scarum decision. I can't understand why they ended like this after 25 years. Why did they officially disband? Why didn't they stay together as SMAP and just stop their activity? I am not sure if this is a good way they chose.

And I have the feeling that some of them aren't happy with this end. The statements were really interesting and I think that especially Kimura wasn't happy with how this was going.

What will happen to them now? They'll make solo projects, but what kind of solo projects? I especially wonder what Goro and Tsuyoshi will do in the future? What about Shingo? Nakai has his variety shows and Kimura has his acting, but the others?
I am really curious what we'll hear about the members in future. I just hope that this way is really what they wanted to do.

It's really sad that they end up like this, and after Kat-tun it's the second band disbanding, which I always liked. (I know Kat-tun is 'only' on hiatus, but I have the feeling that they won't return...)

Of course we have to respect their decision, and I wish all of them the best, and that it's really the way they wanted to go, but in the end it also makes me enourmous sad that entertainment loses this band.


I'll go to relax some more now, so have a nice day <3 <3

I was devastated when my friend [livejournal.com profile] 18_sz said this on her post! I was nearly about to cry.

Heyyyy, it's nice to hear from you and Lily again. I'm glad you had a relaxing time :)

I agree. I was really sad about the news. JE is loosing a pioneer. It's especially sad because of the way they left and because it wasn't a decision from all.

But...I almost don't dare to say it ...but...please, please don't compare them to KAT-TUN. KAT-TUN is on hiatus, no recharge and not disbanded! Don't say that when everything is still possible! There are still many who believe in them! Besides NewS was on hiatus twice and look where they are now! Gaining more and more popularity again. You should read Tatsu-gumi and Maru's JWeb. They're fighting and not giving up! And Kame needs a breather but loves KAT-TUN too much to give up on it! I wish everyone would wait and see what they'll bring...or maybe not. But until they truly say they'll disband, don't say it! Please, I beg you! As a total Hyphen I trust them, support them, believe in them until they prove me wrong and totally destroy my trust in anything. They said to wait. Said they need to recharge. I believe they mean it! You should at least give them that much credit and not paint them already gone. They're trying their best!


Sorry for the rant but when I read your entry I didn't expect KAT-TUN to be mentioned and definitely not as disbanded. It was like a knife through the heart *blushes and hides*

Please don't be mad at me for being honest *hugs tight*

First off that lake is absolutely gorgeous. I'm glad that you two had a great trip.
It seems like there was definitely some sort of infighting amongst them. I thought that earlier in the year that it was some sort of protest against the agency, but it seems that I was wrong.
It makes me worried for the future of other groups. I hope that it doesn't go the same way for others at the agency.

Sorry, I stumbled on your entry and just wanted to say that I highly doubt KAT-TUN will disband. Even though they're officially on hiatus, Kame and Ueda recently got their own personal blogs on jweb. To me, that looks like a move from the agency exactly to avoid fans thinking that this is an indefinite hiatus, and so that the members still have exposure.
