Actor Nagayama Eita, better known as Eita, will be leaving his agency PAPADO, Inc. at the end of the month.
Eita announced on his official website, "At this time, I, Nagayama Eita, will be leaving PAPADO, Inc., where I have belonged to for the past 20 years. I was able to continue acting until now thanks to my supporters and the staff at PAPADO. They gave me love and energy towards my work, and supported me where I fell short. I can't express my gratitude with a single word."
He continued, "In order to live in this difficult world, I have to firmly ground myself and take the responsibility to carry out my work. In order to do that, I have decided to go independent."
PAPADO also commented, "We ask for your continued guidance and encouragement for Nagayama Eita, who chose to go independent to challenge himself to new things."
Eita is set to star in TBS's upcoming drama 'Rikokatsu' from April.
