KAT-TUN fans revealed what they heard from some staff at the recent BEST ARTIST…

- Taguchi’s withdrawal announcement was NOT planned beforehand. But MC Sakurai Sho knew that that’s gonna be Taguchi-kun’s last performance with KAT-TUN.
- Sho said something about “facing the fans” and advised Taguchi-kun to announce it during the live broadcast, but KAT-TUN initially refused, fearing it’d ruin the mood of the show.
- “Whatever happens later is on me. I’ll take the responsibility.” Since Sho said that, KAT-TUN agreed to announce it after “Dead or Alive”.
- Sho urged the staffs to change Arashi’s turn with KAT-TUN’s for Johnny’s Love Medley to give the group some time to prepare. “It’s okay, just cut the MC part here. I’ll manage somehow!”
- The staffs agreed. From there, the show went a little chaotic backstage because certain MC parts were cut and such, but Sho skillfully changed the scripts and managed to steer it back on track.

Jun said the time where he felt that members are more united is when a group chat is created on LINE . Recently, the members even sent photos in the group, although the increase in intimacy may be weird to outsiders. They created the group chat to discuss Leader's birthday surprise at first, Leader joined in later.
Nino: It's not enough to only meet at work. We want to keep sharing info with one another. Nino: 30-years-olds using smart phone for the first time tend to be like this
