August 30th ♥ 松本潤 (Matsumoto Jun)
MatsuJun joined the agency in May 1996. His older sister was a big fan of KinKi Kids, so he thought about applying. He sent his application to the agency on his elementary school graduation day and received a phone call weeks later from Johnny-san, inviting him to attend a rehearsal instead of being auditioned. Becoming an elite member of the agency.
During his junior days he was part of junior units like MAIN, B.B.B. and B.I.G. until 1999, when his debut as the youngest member of Arashi was decided. In 2002, he graduated high school from “Horikoshi Gakuen” and also gained popularity when starring the first season of “Gokusen”. Later, he would also star in “Kimi wa Petto”, “Hana Yori Dango” saga which allowed him to be recognized by press, actors and fans, this was a great contribution to Arashi’s popularity at that point.
J is known for being very serious and professional when it comes to his work. Despite being the youngest member, he is very protective of his bandmates. Though giving this stoic image is part of his charm, he breaks into tears easily and has great respect for the loyalty of his fans and supporters.
Happy 29th Birthday! お誕生日おめでとう！〜
