Famed Japanese actor Jun Kaname is reported to have been caught attempting to open an illegal adult establishment.
On August 3, the Shūkan Bunshun reported that the actor had planned to open an illegal adult establishment. The report quotes an insider who alleged that the actor had tried to open the operation in 2021 by using his manager’s name.
In 2021, Jun Kaname tried to open an illegal adult establishment by using his manager’s name. It was a massage shop moonlighting as a brothel. Through his manager, he bought adult toys and displayed them in the rooms.
The report then stated the illegal establishment’s homepage could still be found. According to a Wikitree report, the website states that those with sexually transmitted diseases were not welcome and also barred entrance to those who found the place suspicious.
According to a lawyer, a permit is necessary to operate such an establishment, and opening one without it would be illegal.
Jun Kaname has since admitted to the allegations but denied that he had tried to run the place illegally and claimed that he had advertised the establishment before getting a permit out of ignorance.
Meanwhile, Jun Kaname is a popular actor who currently stars in NHK‘s Ranman.
