Tsuyoshi Kusanagi, who was arrested last month for public indecency, will make his comeback in the entertainment business with the taping of a TV variety program May 28, the talent agency he belongs to said Thursday.

The program, “SMAP × SMAP,” a weekly show on Fuji Television Network, will be aired June 1. Tokyo prosecutors decided against indicting Kusanagi, 34, because he had expressed regret and had already suffered social embarrassment.
