Sho Sakurai talks about his love for Arashi in front of students

Arashi’s Sho Sakurai talked about his career struggles and how Arashi members helped him to overcome his challenges at a special university student viewing of his latest film in Tokyo on September 27, reports Chunichi Sports and Daily Sports Online.

More than a hundred university students were invited to a special viewing of “神様のカルテ (Kamisama no Karute)” yesterday, which also involved an hour talk session with Sakurai, who listened to students talking about their worries about finding a job and what to do after graduation.

“When I was 20, 22-years-old, I was worried about things too.  But what’s important is to keep going, even if the results aren’t what you wanted them to be, just live your life to its best,” he said.

It has been reported one student asked Sakurai what he found to be a big challenge in the real world.

“I think there’ll be more times people expect you to be able to do things yourself, but maybe that’s where I’m a little different…  In Arashi, I have four other guys in the same boat as me.  We support and help one another out, so I only feel one-fifth of the pain.  I think you’ll find how important it is to have friends who you can trust,” Sakurai said.

Sakurai also talked about how he struggled with university life.

“I remember during university, especially before exams, I would fall asleep while washing my hair, I’d even fall asleep while sitting on the toilet.  But I learnt a lot from overcoming those challenges while I had the strength,” he said.

Finally, the Johnny’s talent gave some advise to the students at yesterday’s event.

“Don’t take anything for granted.  Going to new places, even if it looks tiring, is enough to fill you with hope and excitement.  You can work harder if you know there are people around you who are supporting you too,” he said.

It has been reported to date, more than 1.4 million people have seen “神様のカルテ (Kamisama no Karute)”.
