Johnny’s office announced on the night of July 22, 2020, TOKIO’s Tomoya Nagase (41) will leave the office at the end of March 2021.
According to the official website of the office, members Shigeru Jojima (49), Taichi Kokubun (45) and Masahiro Matsuoka (43) will belong to “TOKIO Co., Ltd.” from April 1, 2009. On the other hand, Mr. Nagase said, “I left the Johnny’s office and took another path as an individual,” he added.
Regarding the departure of Mr. Nagase, “Bunshun Online” was reported around 19:00 on the same day, and surprised voices were spreading on the Internet even before the announcement. Among them, the one that stands out is the voice, “What will happen to DASH village?”
“How about curry in DASH village?”
Not only “DASH Village”, but also the common name and location of the location that is broadcast on “The! Tetsuwan DASH!!” (NTV) where TOKIO appears. Although the location was initially hidden, it was announced in April 2011 that it was located in Namie Town, Fukushima Prefecture due to the situation that the location could not be set up after the Great East Japan Earthquake. At the corner, the TOKIO members mainly broadcast how they work hard on farming and civil engineering, as well as the interaction with the “villagers” who act together with the members is drawn, and the warm contents are well received.
However, in May 2018, a member, Tatsuya Yamaguchi (48), left the Johnny’s office. At the corner, there were many people who lamented that Yamaguchi, who had been one of the other members of the group working on farming and civil engineering, had left the group. However, “DASH Village” has continued broadcasting since then, and it has become impossible to go to Fukushima Prefecture for 20 years due to the outbreak of the new coronavirus, so it is broadcasted that the rice planting in Tokyo is broadcast and the viewers praise it. It is a corner that still has a lot of attention.
However, when Mr. Nagase leaves Johnny’s office at the end of March 2021, another member will disappear from DASH village. Therefore, from the viewer who knew Mr. Nagase’s announcement of leaving, “Nagase-kun isn’t it… But DASH village will continue,” he said, eager for the survival of the village. In addition to the increase, some people are wondering what would happen to the proud curry that Mr. Nagase had made in the program, “How about curry in DASH village if Nagase leaves?”
Was it decided before?
Tomoya Nagase of TOKIO announced his departure in March.
It has been rumored for some time, but it seems to have been true.
It means to leave the group in good spirits,
I am wondering if activities with TOKIO members will resume in the future.
In the first place, it is a mystery whether Nagase will stay in the entertainment world.
