(Source: Entame) It was reported that Arashi's leader, Satoshi Ohno (28), gave an apology to the staff and cast of Maou with regards to the pot-smoking-3P-Kodansha-Shuukan-Gendai incident.
Ohno arrived on the set of Maou looking no different from normal, giving slight salutations to members of the staff, as well as co-stars who were present. Despite his calmness however, the atmosphere on the set was pretty tense.
Suddenly, Ohno broke the silence and said," This time, I have given you much trouble." and bowed deeply. He followed up with a statement that "he had not done all those things that had been reported." His co-stars and members of the staff were listening intently to everything he said.
When Ohno left the room, people could be heard expressing their shock at his sudden apology. Some speculated that he would do the same for an upcoming concert. Entame also wondered when Ohno would give a direct apology to his fans.
