One SMAP fan in late 30s has expressed her dissatisfaction over the continuous “barter appearance” (exchange appearances) that Kis-My-Ft2 is getting this last few months from SMAP. This dissatisfaction is not limited to Kisumai, it is also extended to Yamashita Tomohisa, and have reportedly reached its climax.
It is something unavoidable since SMAP’s “foster parent“, Ms. Iijima, was also given the role to manage Kis-My-Ft2 and YamaPi. Starting with SMAPxSMAP where Kisumai and YamaPi have had their appearances to promote their own single, these two were also given the chance to act along SMAP members. Examples are: Kimura Takuya‘s PRICELESS with Kis-my-Ft2′s Fujigaya Taisuke, Katori Shingo’s MONSTERS with Yamashita Tomohisa, and recently-finished Nakai Masahiro‘s ATARU with Kis-my-Ft2′s Tamamori Yuta.
“Although we know that is inevitable to see them act with SMAP in dramas in TV shows, it would be unforgivable if we will see them guests in SMAP’s concerts. After all, we went there to see SMAP perform, not them. We know that SMAP treats their juniors (kouhai’s) kindly, and even though we want to support them too, sometimes it can have the opposite effect and lead to loathing,” according to one fan.
Furthermore, as Kis-my-Ft2′s popularity rises and so does their notoriety. The group has been rumored to have a bad reputation that sparked some unfavorable criticisms from SMAP fans.
Apparently, Kis-my-Ft2′s Fujigaya Taisuke is said to be respectful to senior officials, but when it comes to staff, he has a bad attitude and would scold them openly or treats them like a fool. “I don’t know why he is so popular, but I’m more surprised what a two-faced person he is,” according to a production staff.
Ms.Iijima ignored advice that it was still too early for Fujigaya to star solo in TBS drama “The Beginners!“, which only managed to gain 7.5% average ratings.
However, those results where shrugged-off and in between shoot and editing, Fujigaya would go surfing and get so tanned. He would also get angry when some scenes wouldn’t connect and has to be re-taken. Some fans expressed their worries over Fujigaya’s attitude and hopes that the “old” Fujigaya would come back.
