Koichi Domoto is the best in Johnny’s according to his seniors

Johnny’s senior talent Noriyuki Higashiyama told a popular TV show he thinks Koichi Domoto from KinKi Kids is the biggest perfectionist in Johnny’s, reports Techinsight Japan on July 21.

 

Higashiyama is currently 45-years-old, and is considered a perfectionist who has followed a strict training regime for the past 20 years.  During a talk on TV show “しゃべくり007 (Shabekuri 007)”, it has been reported Higashiyama said he has kept his body-fat percentage below 10 per cent all these years because he exercises daily.  This includes stretching and 1000 sit-ups every day.

 

Even so, when asked who he thought was the biggest perfectionist in Johnny’s, Higashiyama had said it would be Koichi, and that the KinKi Kids member was more dedicated to work than himself.

 

It has been reported Higashiyama said there was one time during the New Year’s Johnny’s concert when he went back to his dressing room thinking everything was alright, when Koichi came knocking at the door to ask him if the two could go through the songs one more time.  Higashiyama also said Koichi’s “SHOCK” stage show was perfect, and admired Koichi for being able to “keep it up for four months on that show, usually your weight drops four or five kilos from doing a show for that long.”

 

Another Johnny’s talent who had been on the same TV show, TOKIO’s Masahiro Matsuoka also said Koichi was the most professional talent in Johnny’s, and the best junior to him.

 

It has been reported Koichi has been playing the main role in the stage show “SHOCK” for the past 13 years.  It could be because he was given such an important role at the young age of 21 that he learned about responsibility more than others.

      @nekomota:

      Yeah…I dunno. Tackey has his own stage show, Kame’s been doing DREAM BOYS, Tsubasa’s been with PLAYZONE for a while too.
      Maybe some bright Jr. talent????

      I’ve always thought Hey! Say! JUMP’s Ryosuke Yamada looks a little like Koichi when he was Yamada’s age. Still, I guess that has nothing to do with whether he could be Koichi’s successor!

      Thanks for commenting.
