Kame appeared on NihonTV’s “Zukkiri!” on 11th October and talked about Koki’s departure from KAT-TUN.
He confessed that he came to know about Koki’s dismissal from the agency 2 days after his contract was cancelled. Koki then contacted the members directly and they sat down to talk about it. It was decided that they would draw the line once and for all.
The reasons for Koki’s dismissal was due a variety of reasons like running a bar, conducting a live concert without agency consent, dj-ing at a club, trouble involving women, tattoo etc.
Kame said ” There are rules from our agency which we have to abide by. Even from our point of view, his actions were already over the top.”
When asked about the sidelines which Koki runs, Kame said “As reported, things like running a shop. We also came to notice it.”
On the future of KAT-TUN, Kame said “There’s no other way but to continue as KAT-TUN. There’s no way we will cause trouble like this again. I promise to protect the group moving forward.”
Not a fan of KAT-TUN but it’s sad that this group is breaking up like NEWS. And poor Kame has to shoulder the responsibilities of explaining this to the media!
