In a career that spans almost 8 years Hey!Say!JUMP’s Yabu Kota has appeared in many a stage production, from Stand by Me to Dreamboy(s) to Takizawa Everything, most of the time in supporting / backdancing roles. Now it’s finally his turn to be the leading star in a butai. Starting on December 12 he will play Georg Nowack in the musical She Loves Me. The run of 56 performances at Tokyo’s Theatre Creation will end on January 31, 2010, Yabu’s 20th birthday.
She Loves Me revolves around sales clerks Georg Nowack and Amalia Balash who, despite being consistently at odds with each other at work, are unaware that each is the other’s secret pen pal they met through lonely-hearts ads. (More info: Wikipedia)

Amalia will be played by 22-year-old actress Kanda Sayaka. Also appearing in the show will be Johnny’s veterans and Shonentai members Nishikiori Kazukiyo (44) and Uekusa Katsuhide (42, father of Johnny’s Jr Uekusa Yuta).

Thanks to kamichan_ya3for providing the raw file and requesting newshfan to sub it !! Also, thanks newshfan for subing it.

Ryutaro Morimoto, currently the youngest member of Hey! Say! JUMP at 14 years old, recently had his mobile phone stolen. The suspect, a 17-year-old boy, was arrested on Wednesday by Kanagawa police. The boy has reportedly denied the charges.
The phone was stolen at around 11:45pm on Tuesday night. The boy, a fan of Morimoto, had followed him around on multiple occasions in the past. Last December, Morimoto's family consulted police about the problem.
On Tuesday at about 10:00pm, Morimoto went to a restaurant near his house, meeting the boy in person to ask him to stop his behavior. The boy then apparently threatened Morimoto by saying that he had a knife. When Morimoto attempted to call his family from outside the restaurant, the boy grabbed the phone and ran away. He was later found after police traced a call to another cell phone owned by Morimoto.
Morimoto's management has not yet issued an official statement on the matter.
