September 4th ♥ 中丸雄一 (Nakamaru Yuichi)
Maru joined the agency in November 1998. He asked Johnny-san if a Johnny should be good looking, when told: “what do you think?”, he replied: “I think I’m the bottom of the middle” to which Johnny-san said: “YOU! Are the top of the middle”, and he passed the audition. Yuchi bought a watermelon with his first salary.
In the hopes of getting more screen time and collaborate with song making process, he came up with beatboxing, self-teaching himself, everyday till the point of even doing it while sleeping. He is also very good at dancing. His effort was rewarded by debuting as the oldest member of KAT-TUN in 2006. Also collaborating with lyrics under the name “YUCCI”.
In May 2008, it was revealed that Nakamaru had entered Waseda University, majoring in Enviromental Science. Currently he is participating in dorama “Omo ni Naitemasu” and since last year he is also trying the newscaster field under NTV’s “Tsuichi”. KAT-TUN’s new single “Fumetsu no Scrum” will be released next week.
Happy 29th Birthday! お誕生日おめでとう！〜
