Nakamaru Yuichi embarrasses Senpai Domoto Koichi
(Japanese online gossip source: Entame) While attending a PR Event at Kagoshima Prefecture (Kyuushuu) for their movie, Sushi Ouiji!, Nakamaru Yuichi’s bad attitude reportedly pissed off reporters and sullied the honour and “face” of his senpai, Domoto Koichi.
The management had arranged for Nakamaru Yuichi to be interviewed by 7 or 8 local TV and radio stations. When answering questions, he would seem very bored, starting with answers with, “Soussu–ne…” or “aa…Hai” (ah… Yes.)
However the thing that really pissed reporters off was when asked the question, “Which is your favourite nigiri sushi topping?” Nakamaru told “Miru-Kai” to some reporters (Shellfish), while “Uni” (Sea Urchin) to others. The reporters found themselves in a fix not knowing which to report, when finally Nakamaru’s manager emerged and requested reporters to settle with “Uni”. Reporters were really ticked off at him having cooked up such a big fuss over such a trivial matter.
However, when it was time to meet the fans and for performance, Nakamaru’s attitude had a 360 degree volte-face and he gave his “salesman-smile”, rapping and whatnot on the stage. Backstage however, the mood was foul and reporters were miffed. A veritable taint/insult to Koichi’s standing? Hmm after posting this and thought about it, it seems more of bad PR for himself than for Koichi, but I guess it just shows he doesn’t give respect to his senpai.
