Member Spotlight: Okamoto Keito

Filed under: Member Spotlight,Okamoto Keito — amaiyume @ 4:20 am

Although he is a bit underloved in the group, how can you not love Keito? Personally, I love his hair and he’s just sooo cute that you just wanna hug him.

Okamoto Keito was born on April 01, 1993. He was born in Tokyo but moved to England (he is the only member of the group that is fluent in English) but recently moved back to Japan. At times, he has a hard time reading kanji and remembering his Japanese (aww, that’s cute and very understandable). His father is Okamoto Kenichi, who is senior in Johnny’s Entertainment, so it’s no surprise that Keito decided to follow in his footsteps. In October 2006, he joined as a trainee and later on in September 2007, he became a member of Hey! Say! JUMP. With the group, he has released three singles: Ultra Music Power, Dreams come true and Your Seed / 冒険ライダー. Their fourth single, 真夜中のシャドーボーイ, is set to be released on October 22. As of now, all the singles have gone to number one so it’s definitely something that he can be proud of. He’s a bit underloved and definitely needs more screen time in the PVs / more of a presence in the songs so hopefully they’ll be more opportunities for him in the future.

While nearly all the other members of Hey! Say! JUMP have been in a drama, even only as a guest appearance, sadly Keito has not been in any (aww, that’s sad). I think he should be doing something soon…just anything…hopefully one in the future.

Keito’s respected senior is Kimura Takuya (who??). His favorite foods include fried chicken, ice cream and strawberry milk while his least favorite food is anything in the seafood department. He has never kissed a girl (that’s cute!!) and has never confesed his love to anyone. The type of girl that he admires is one who is nice, honest, peaceful and carefree who is a bit girly. As a child, he dream was to be a doctor (ooh, Dr. Keito is ready to operate haha). His favorite song is PIKA NICHI by Arashi and his favorite color is blue. His favorite subject is math and his speciality is the ability to be funny without trying (that’s definitely a good quality to have).

So let’s all give Keito some more love because you know you wanna give it to him. Let’s close this member spotlight with a picture of shirtless Keito because you all have been looking for it (that’s right, “Okamoto Keito shirtless” pops up a lot as searches for this blog hehe).

  2. haha, no I don’t know who that is. Or maybe I do know but I don’t know the name with the face…hmm…
    I wish wiki.theppn was working now cause it’s hard to get information so now I rely on the regular wikipedia and they’re likely to have less info…

    No. Not at all.

    Kimura Takuya is in SMAP and he’s known as Japan’s sexiest man. He’s ALWAYS on top of those sort of lists. And Kame from KAT-TUN won Best Jeanist with Kuu (3 years in a row, I think?)…

  7. yeesh, wiki lied to me…but I think it may have been the English wiki instead of the Japanese one. Hopefully they fixed it. Thanks! I’ll fix it right now!

    hahaha, I just don’t see it in Kimura XD
