It's definitely quite sudden, and somewhat of a horrific shock for fangirls, but according to various news sites as well as the singer's management company, Jin Akanishi is indeed getting married. Why am I posting this? Well, it intrigues me how one artist could be working so hard without slowing down and still find time to get married, much less have any sort of relationship. I mean, he's probably very busy with his upcoming North American shows, as well as with the promotion of his singles. Also, because of how hard some of his fans are taking it. I've read how girls are feeling depressed and heartbroken as if they were in a relationship with the man. But let's be realistic here, he's just a good-looking performer but as normal as you and I could possibly be. Am I disappointed that he's off the market? Not in the least. I wasn't caught in a fantasy world like most. However, don't you think that entertainers (particularly young male entertainers) who get married somewhat causes a depreciation of their fanbase? I think so.
To back up the previous question and answer, I’ve had friends who lost interest in male entertainers as soon as they declare themselves ‘off the market.’ My girls would often say “who, him…he’s married so I can’t drool over him anymore.” Basically its like once they tie the not some fans no longer relate with their songs about being single and having a good time because now all you’ll be thinking is “isn’t he married? so why is he singing about being single and lonely?” I’m just stating what I’ve heard people. No need to take offense. Anyways, back to Jin.
I’m not exactly an avid follower of Akanishi and only recently started due to his efforts in the States. However, I sincerely wish him the best and whether or not this is a shot gun situation, any two people taking the next step towards commitment should always try to make it work cause divorce is expensive. That’s just my opinion.
What do you think, is Jin Akanishi getting married for love or due to other circumstances, and how will this news affect his career?
