It's been reported that Marius Yo will leave Sexy Zone and retire from showbiz on December 31.
Marius had been on hiatus since December of 2020 due to poor health. During this period, he gained a new dream through his schoolwork, which is to "aim to become a person who can be internationally active." While he strongly felt that he should respond to fans who were patiently waiting for his return; ultimately, he wanted to challenge himself to his new dream, so he decided to retire from showbiz.
Marius's last stage will be Johnny & Associates's year-end live 'Johnny's Countdown 2022→2023' on December 31 at Tokyo Dome. After that, Sexy Zone will be active as a four-member group comprised of Nakajima Kento, Kikuchi Fuma, Sato Shori, and Matsushima Sou.
