It's been announced that Kondo Masahiko's activities have been suspended indefinitely.
This comes after a tabloid magazine reported on his affair. When his agency Johnny's & Associates confirmed the facts, Kondo admitted that he was involved with the woman as reported by the magazine. After discussing with his family, he wanted to "take responsibility for the series of events, and refrain from entertainment activities." Johnny's recognized that there must be a strict punishment for Kondo, who is the eldest Johnny's talent, and accepted this as a natural consequence.
