The announcement was made during "SMAP x SMAP
". The 5 members appeared in black suits, announced that they were not disbanding, and apologized for the controversy surrounding the group for the past week.
SMAP was "on the verge of a midair breakup", according to group member Takuya Kimura. However, he then said, "From now on we will only look ahead and strive to go forward."
SMAP has been said to be disbanding since the beginning of last week when Iijima Michi
