Japanese cosmetics company Kose corrects statement about talent transfers from Johnny's Entertainment, apologizes amid pressure


Kose issued an apology on September 19th for making changes to its announcement made on September 15th regarding the use of talent from Johnny's Entertainment. They removed the part mentioning "transfers to other companies" due to criticism.

Initially, the announcement stated that Johnny's Entertainment would focus on compensating victims, and talent under their management could return to the entertainment industry through transfers to other companies or the establishment of new organizations. However, they received criticism suggesting that it could be seen as pressure from the employing side. So, they corrected the statement by removing references to transfers.

Kose stated, "The proposal was intended to prepare options for talents to resume their activities, and there was no intention to encourage actions like transfers. We apologize for any misunderstandings caused by our wording."
