We would like to petition SMAP to come back!

SMAP, the most successful Japanese boy band with its estimated economic value of JPY60Bn ($.6Bn) a year, has achieved an unprecedented level of success in numerous genres in the entertainment industry, including music, TV, film, radio, and theater, as a group and individually for the last 28 years. Referred to as a “national treasure” in Japan, SMAP has contributed to bilateral friendships with other countries including China and Korea as ambassadors. 

On August 14th, despite SMAP's popularity with their planned role as 2020 Tokyo Paralympic supporters, Johnny & Associates announced through a press release that SMAP will disband on December 31, 2016. Although it has been reported that the decision was derived from some members desire to disband, there were no press conference nor announcements by members themselves, which caused many Japanese people question about freedom of the press and human rights issue by talent agencies.
