Excerpts from KAT-TUN’s appearance on “Sakurai Ariyoshi Abunai Yakai – Until We Meet Again SP”

4 May

About the Past
Ariyoshi: You guys were delinquents initially?
Sakurai: If you were considered bad in your hometown,but if you debut as an idol, you’d be considered the honorary student. For them it’s the direct opposite. After their debut, they got worse! Why did this happen?!
Kame: We did rebel against society.
Ueda: But people around praised us…said “it’s good!” Clicking our tongue became a good thing?
Nakamaru:We had a concept during debut – “Black and Wild”. So i tried my best to fit the concept.
Guest Panelist: It wasn’t the standard Johnny’s style(Delinquents vs Johnny’s).But as i like bad boys i couldn’t resist them.
Ariyoshi: When i first met them i disliked them. All of them were slightly late. (*everyone explodes into laughter.) They were wearing sunglasses and fur coats. They didn’t even take it off(while talking to me)!
Nakamaru: Indeed, the comments from our staff was very bad!
Kame: But don’t we also look at the seniors? I think in the end those who gathered here are those who looked up to the “bad” seniors.
Guest Panelist: Who are the “bad” ones in Johnnys?
Kame: It was…..Sho kun.
Sakura: It was just during Juniors days.
Nakamaru: He was cool and had style.
Ariyoshi: He doesn’t! (*Sakurai protests.)
Kame: He was so charismatic! He could dance, cool and wore a Ralph Lauren shirt with a pinkish tint….from the perspective of the juniors, he was cool!
Sakurai: So it wouldn’t be exaggerating to say that i gave birth to KAT-TUN?
Kame & Nakamaru: It’s more or less because of you too.
Sakurai: After such a long time, are there things which made you pissed off?
Kame: The ones who pissed me off have all left. (*laughs)

About Recharge Period
Kame: When we came down to 5 members, we decided to work hard. When we became 4, we continued to work hard. When we became 3…wait a minute….We decided to be calm for once. Of cos, it’d be great to continue without disbanding, but continuing isn’t the only solution. So for once, we will rest and power up in our individual activities.

About the relevancy of KAT-TUN
Ariyoshi: You guys are lucky you aren’t V6!
Kame: But we are KAT-TUN and our initials makeup the group name!
Nakamaru: We were already pushed to the limit with 4 members. Anyway, with 3 it’s impossible!
Ueda goes on to explain how KAT-TUN’s name is now KA for KAmenashi, T-TU for Ueda TaTsuya and N for Nakamaru.

The latter part focuses on individual members as they try to overcome their weaknesses.
Kame complains about having very limited ways to show off his coolness so he learns some culinary skills and body art.
Ueda goes for an image change because his costars in stage play complained that he has a very cold exterior so it’s hard to talk to him.
Nakamaru tries to change his “my pace” character.

      I also loved the part where Ueda went for an image change to look friendlier.
