First of all, Kimura Takuya started with, "It is January 18th 2016 today. We have caused a public†uproar since last week about us, SMAP, and we gave worries to so many people. If things kept going, I was afraid that SMAP could break up in midair, so we thought it was important for five of us together to explain to everyone. Therefore, we received this opportunity."
Then each members followed,†
- Inagaki Goro†
"I'm sorry for causing troubles about us.†I hope you see us from now on, and would like to receive support from you, so we will do our best. Please continue to support us."
- Katori Shingo
"I apologize for making so many people worried and anxious. Starting today, I hope we can make many smiles with you again, so please support us."
- Nakai Masahiro
"Because of this, it made me strongly realize once again how much SMAP is receiving supports from you. I deeply apologize. Please continue to support us."
- Kusanagi Tsuyoshi
"I noticed so many things because of the words from you. I am really grateful. We are standing right here, since Kimura-kun gave us an†opportunity†to apologize to Johnny-san.†I am relieved to be able to stay here with all five of us together."
At the end, Kimura said, "Lastly, we will keep going forward...just by looking forward, no matter what happens, so everyone, please support us."
It seems like SMAP's disbandment has been avoided.
