Ken joined the agency in January 1994. He never went through an audition, he just appeared in a SMAP concert in the back, told by Johnny-san. As a junior, he was paired with Morita Go as the GoKenCombi, and later on Okada was added to form Coming Century.
In 1995, his debut as a member of V6 was decided. He likes to learn languages, so he’s usually in charge of greetings when V6 has overseas concerts. He’s currently into K-Pop, he even goes to concerts and buys their goods. He also hosts “Otoko no Hensachi!!” with the other members.
A few days ago, a new single of V6 was announced to be released next month.
