Can I just first point out that I am NOT some mad woman who is planning on killing whoever the girlfriends are!    :winky: I'm 22 years old and I have LONG passed that will-kill-for-my-idol fan girl stage.

I was just thinking about it the other day and I realized that I've never seen any girlfriends of theirs (except for those scandals that happened some time ago  ::x). I'm from Europe and, as any of you who are from Europe will know, we don't exactly see Arashi in any of our magazines over here or anything like that, so I don't really have a way of reading about them except for the internet.

So, does anyone know who the current girlfriends are, if there are?

I won't trash them, but I would like to comment on them and why I am so much better than whoever Sho-kun is dating right now!  in love blush in love blush *fangirl mode ON*   :yahoo:

Johnny's idols are not allowed to date, period. This is actually a rule/regulation from the agency itself. (this is also the same for Hello! Project/Morning Musume girls as well)

If these idols are caught dating/having a girlfriend Johnny's would usually give them an ultimatum of sorts: your girl or your career?

So, either way, none of us fangirls have a chance w/ them, unless if they decide to retire/resign or something.

In short, we may never know. Because of this rule, some of these idols are keeping their relationships very discreet both from the public and from JE. Besides, is it really any of our business if they have a gf or not? Think about it. They're human too and have their own lives to live outside the public eye.

Let them have their own life? Of course I would let them have their own life!!! I didn't say that they shouldn't have a girlfriend, I was just wondering if they can make their relationships public that's all.

Oi, calm down. No need to yell. x_x

Japanese entertainment isn't like Hollywood. They're a lot more restrictive in there than it is over here (I live in California, about 8-hr drive north of Hollywood), depending on the talent agency these stars are signed under. The saddest part is that the paparazzi over there is a lot more aggressive than the paparazzi in the western world and it's only in tabloids that you would see stories about these idols' relationships with a significant other, not in major entertainment magazines like Kindai, Wink Up!, An-An, Potato, Duet, Myojo, TV Guide, etc. There are a few cases where the idols themselves would publicly declare their relationships, but they usually come from idols who are in their late 20s and older (majority older, from 30s and up). Usually at that time period hardly anyone would make a big deal of their relationships at that age, however if it it's from someone who's a minor or in the early-mid 20s? It's a huge big deal to fans and to the industry.

That's why in general you will generally never see any mention about their personal relationships with others written in magazines or even in entertainment TV shows. Talent agencies in Japan, most notably JE, are a very powerful force in the entertainment industry. Anything they say, goes, pretty much. They even have authority over the media and they can sue them for writing certain news that may be considered inappropriate. And as you know they also have control over their idols as well (although there are some rumors that the agency may have preferences per idol they are managing). Many believe that being in a relationship is a distraction to their careers (and it can be), which is why the regulations are there. Some agencies even forbid their idols to sign autographs to fans at any random location, not without permission. It's ridiculous, but that's how they work.

So, in short, in general, no, they can't make their relationships public unless if they're really that rebellious and daring. Doing that is also a call saying that they want their career and reputations ruined by industry standards, not fanbase standards.

Adri, don't jump at her, she doesn't yell  lol

Hey AmayaSakurai ^^

I guess it's a common understanding that in the entertainment world, they try to remain as private as possible on their personal lives. Well, in case of JE, it's even more (with the nature of the company and the nature of the fans and yeah you know ^^)

Well, the past recent week I've heard about Taguchi (KATTUN) trip with his girlfriend to Hawaii, and if I'm not mistaken he had a bit of trouble with the jimusho for it, but I guess if they want to have a girlfriend, they would. They just have to be very careful about it.

Don't worry, we might not really know if they have a girlfriend (and I don't have enough time to search for that information since I'm too busy flailing over them :x):) but if they ever gonna get married, we would know :x):

If multiple exclamation points isn't consider yelling, then I don't know what it is...

Why is it that every time I respond to someone people are already assuming that I'm jumping on the person? Am I really that hated?

Thank you salwa.  :huggy: It's true I wasn't yelling, I was exclaiming. And I also felt hated a few replies ago, because people were jumping on me. Should never have posted this topic in the first place, wish someone from the moderators would delete it.

Exclaiming can be synonymous to screaming/yelling, which is why I saw you as yelling.

And I also felt hated a few replies ago, because people were jumping on me. Should never have posted this topic in the first place, wish someone from the moderators would delete it.

As a new Arashi fan, there are no dumb questions. You asked for some answers, we provide you the answers.

No one is jumping on you just because of a question like that. I'm betting that not very many Arashi fans know of this as well, so this is actually a good question to ask. Do keep in mind that there's always going to be fans who are very sensitive to issues such as these, and if they are, they would definitely respond as if they're about to jump you.

I'm just merely explaining how Japanese entertainment in general functions compared to other entertainment (Hollywood is obviously the more known one). I certainly am not jumping on you but it seems other people think I am. I'm not a very well-liked person in the fandom, I guess.

But instead of deleting this thread, locking it would be good. In that way other fans would be aware and not make a big deal about it in the future.

Just to make things clear, I think most of us are actually quite numb to this kinda question. True I was curious about it before too, but now, as I said, I don't really care anymore, it's not like it has got anything to do with me, or that it will affect my liking for them anyway.

AmayaSakurai, I actually admire you for having the courage to pose the question, which I think you might have already have some kinda preparation to get something not-so-nice. Though sometimes the way we speak is different, I don't think anyone is jumping on anyone, we're just sharing what we know, and hopefully it will more or less provide you the answer you want.

But but BUT, the boys did mention their ex-gfs before in interviews and talks, of course no names were mentioned though^^;

Alright, as one of the mods here, can we all keep the discussion in a more civil, calm manner, please? There's no need for the unnecessary "jumping" or repetitive retorting because we're all just going  off topic, which is going to annoy everyone else in this forum especially the admins.

Anyway, back on subject.

There is a reason why they can mention about them on certain times. They're ex-girlfriends. They're the past already and are now focused on the present.

Thank you for all the comments everyone. I guess this really is a sensitive topic, and I never really thought of it that way, gomen.   :kiss:

To be honest, I was expecting the comments to be more of the girly nature with a lot of screaming and kawainess and not a lot of seriousness, but I guess there are 'fans' and then there are 'passionate fans'.  :saycheese:

It's expected that they have girlfriends of course, otherwise there maight be something wrong with them. Or Ohno and Nino would ACTUALLY get together . . .  blush blush blush blush

I'm not mad at anyone, it's my fault for not thinking beforehand on how anyone would react to my post.

I didn't know that the situation with the paparazzi and everything was THAT serious in Japan. I kinda thought that you would know who's dating who, like you normally do in Hollywood. Tough agency, ne?  :diao:

Well, it's not just Johnny's/JE who have these types of restrictions. I do know that Up-Front Agency (the agency behind Hello! Project, Morning Musume, & other groups) and other various agencies who manage some of the hottest, most popular stars around. In Hollywood, the idol (actor, singer, etc.) pretty much rules the industry. In Japan (and probably Korea and other parts of Asia), it's the agency who rules the industry.

The Paparazzi over there pretty much don't care what the circumstances may be. They're all out for the money by taking as many candid (and even to the more extreme candid) photos as much as they can. It's all the same w/ the rest of the Paparazzi around the world. Remember how Princess Diana died back in '97. She laid there in the wrecked car dying as the Paparazzi chasing after them continued to snap away instead of helping her and the passengers for their safety.

It can be a cultural thing too. Asians in general (don't bash me people, I'm Asian myself x__x) are probably some of the most sensitive group of people in the entire world. Majority of the people in this forum are definitely Asians, especially the elders, and they can easily relate to some of the reactions/feelings that Japanese fans would react/feel. That's why you barely see anyone posting up questions about their personal lives and their relationships anywhere here or any other Arashi-related fansite around the net. For Westerners, it's not much of a big deal regarding personal lives and just cheer and support them, but for Asians in general, many of them just go to the extreme.

If you notice anything that's "missing" around the forum and you're wondering why, the ones I mentioned above may be some of the possible reasons why this and that was not mentioned. Simply ask the staff via PM to see if it's ok to ask in public or not. We don't want some uber-sensitive fans going rabid just because of a simple question, ne?  :saycheese:

Hai, wakarimashita!  bow3 Thank you for the explanation Adria-chan! Yeah I'm European, so for the question about their gfs was completely normal and something we Europeans (and Westerners) discuss all the time when it's about idols. Gomen, ne?  oops

I promise that I will keep everything I learned from this topic in mind next time I want to ask a sensitive question. I will definitely think about other's feelings more so that no one gets hurt and we all continue spazzing about Arashi in a civilized manner.  :saycheese:

This discussion reminded me of V6's prank on Arashi, the Josei Paradise one :x): I kinda imagine all the 'what ifs' that the editing department would do if Jun actually made a move on Kentarou-kun ^^ (cuz I was 100.99% sure he was 99.99% close to hitting on her, erm, him)

I'm one of those fans who actually indulge in paparazzi rumours on my fav idols (keyword: fav, cuz I don't give a damn on those I don't like, liek someone from other groups :x):) I might not agree to the rumours, but it shows that they actually matters in the entertainment world.

Cuz paparazzi don't create rumours and chasing yesterday's idols ^^

*This just show my hope for more Jun rumours >.<*

Going back to that "cultural" thing I mentioned in my own post, this is actually a good example. I may be Asian myself but I grew up being a "Westerner," so to me, it's more of a "so what?" response if I see a particular rumor/scandal/whatever being reported on the media (newspaper, TV, etc.) rather than "OMG OMG is it true?!" response etc. etc. My aunts and cousins back in the Philippines take every little thing about their fav stars (Filipino, some other Asian, Hollywood, or what not) seriously and would sometimes email me or any one of my siblings about it. My siblings and I respond to them: "So what?"

Cuz paparazzi don't create rumours and chasing yesterday's idols ^^

It's true, they don't. The tabloid writers do. All that Paparazzi do is take photographs of celebrities and political figures as much as they can in any situation and in any day, any time, and any weather. I mean over here in the U.S., even the Paparazzi take pics of celebrities going grocery shopping for food. What's up with that?  don't know

In actuality, even if an idol/celeb is "yesterday's news," they're still being chased by Paparazzi. They were in the limelight in their early days and even if they want to live on a down low, once you have your share of the spotlight, you'll always be in the spotlight.

The simple answer to the question is: JE will only make it public when they're getting married. ^^ But some of them still won't give the names of their wives and stuff. Private matters remain respected.

JE idols themselves usually announce their marriage or wedding plans. V6's Inohara, for example, announced it to the press when he's getting married. Practically no one knows that he has been dating his wife for 10 years until he came out with the announcement. She is an actress - I forgot her name. And they recently announced that they are expecting their first child - they faxed the information to the press. ^^ So yeah...

Discreet dating is okay. The public don't need to know it until the relationship is serious and marriage/commitment is more-or-less confirmed.

Hmm... Perhaps JE wants its idols to be popular for the long-run and not just seen as tabloid fodder and popular in short flashes because of their romantic liaisons. Some Hollywood celebs got popular because they were dating so-and-so, but when they broke up some of those celebs are suddenly "gone" and they can't get jobs anymore since they are no longer popular. So maybe JE is trying to avoid these complications and just want the public to concentrate on the idols' works and personal achievements.

If it were me, I'd be pissed if I've achieved so much (say won acting awards, sell millions of album, have prime time tv shows after working and busting my butt for the past 10 or so years) and people only recognise and remember me as that person who is dating/sleeping with so-and-so. Wouldn't you?   
(and I'd prefer people not to keep a tally on how many people I've screwed around with, you know. :x):)
