Masahiro Nakai  held a press conference in Tokyo on the 20th and announced that he would leave the Johnny's office in March and be independent.
He consulted the office about leaving the office around May or June last year. He looked back at the time of the dissolution of SMAP and said, "At the time of the dissolution, not only me, but also the members were one paragraph. Since I was a little younger, I wasn't burned out, but I was wondering how to move on to the next step. I thought I had to think about it sooner. One of the honest factors was that I had to leave the long-established office alone.
For members of Takuya Kimura, Goro Inagaki, Shingo Katori, and Tsuyoshi Kusanagi who had already left, they reported on the 20th day before the meeting by e-mail. "Every four people were notified by e-mail yesterday. But there were some members who were late and hadn't arrived yet, and some of them had a carefree response. It's not, and there's a period when I don't contact you for a while.
