    ^Yeah you can say that their dancing is .............. O_O I mean it's sorta gay for men to dance like that but I got to admit they really dance very well... And their body is flexible. =P

    Beside they were used to be dance team for some band but fans went crazy about them so that's how they were formed as KATTUN. =] Jin&Kame are popular among KATTUN as you can see everywhere of them together from dramas to pictures. ^^

    I like Jin more but once you see Kame, he grew on me on his looks... His personality is attractive, though. ^^;;

    kitkat sarNie Elites

    Okay, at first I thought Junno looks cute but once I constantly see him performing on the stage, he isn't that attractive, anymore. T_T I guess he looks great in those pictures, music video, and variety shows, as you can say he's photogenic. ^^

    Damned, I'm crazy over Jin&Kame seriously!!! 3rd guy probably Ueda. =] I'm not into Junno&Koki&Maru... =/

    Hey if you like to have their singles&albums&music videos then check my archive out on my siggie. =P Oh there's 2 left that I haven't done it yet.

    I might reconsider uploading their performances/variety shows.... They sorta have a lot. ^^;;

    Jin&Kame <333
    [​IMG]

    EDIT: 2 left i mention, is up! right now, i'm trying to collect their unofficial songs which meants songs are ripped from their performances as in another word "tvrip" because it's not on singles nor albums. so be patient... they have like over 30 songs... time is consuming because the website i d/l it from, the webmistress posts all songs onto rapidshare AND it's one by one, not the whole songs in one file which its f*cking annoying seriously... (excuse my foul...)

    imma say this again, wanna d/l their songs/pvs? then click on my siggie "my archive" =]

    KAT-TUN

    [​IMG]

    KAT-TUN is a J-pop group from the Johnny's Jimusho (Johnny's Entertainment Company) that is made up of six young Japanese males, namely:

    Kamenashi Kazuya; Main Vocal
    Akanishi Jin; Main Vocal
    Taguchi Junnosuke; Dancing, Acrobatic Stunts
    Tanaka Koki; Main Rapper
    Ueda Tatsuya; Guitar, Sings
    Nakamaru Yuichi; Beat Box

    Before joining KAT-TUN, each member belonged to different Junior units. In 2001, Kinki Kids member Koichi Domoto personally picked 6 Johnny's Jr. members to be his back dancers in the NHK music program, Pop Jam. He chose Kamenashi, Akanishi, Taguchi, Tanaka, Ueda and Nakamaru to join each other under the unit name of KAT-TUN.

    Initially, KAT-TUN was only meant to be a dancing unit to support Koichi Domoto. However, KAT-TUN gained a lot of attention so the formation is maintained and the group later then became a permanent unit up until now.

    Kamenashi is one of the two most popular members of KAT-TUN. He is generally considered cute and charming. Kame-chan usually leads KAT-TUN's participation in the musicals. With Jin, he is the main vocalist of the group.

    More infos from Wikipedia: He is affectionately called Kame and is one of the two most popular members of KAT-TUN. Although the youngest member of KAT-TUN, he is considered the group's unofficial "leader". He is good at public speaking, and he is often appointed as the main speaker whenever KAT-TUN does their MC on TV programs or concerts. With Jin, he is the main vocalist of the group. He starred in Gokusen 2 with Jin and as a result, earned an award for best male supporting actor. Even before that, Kame had starred in the 5th season of the Kinpachi Sensei series. He has also starred in Kindaichi Shounen no Jikenbo (2005) and Nobuta wo Produce along with Yamashita Tomohisa from NewS, for which he scored another award, this time for best male lead actor. The two have also released a single called "Seishun Amigo" under the unit name Shuuji to Akira which also features the song "Kizuna" which he had written the lyrics for (it was used in the drama Gokusen 2).

    Akanishi has some affectionate nicknames from fans. Jin is one of them, but there is also Bakanishi because he often acts childishly. Like Kame, he is one of the two most famous KAT-TUN members. He plays the guitar, sings well, has excellent dance moves and writes quite a lot of songs ("Hesitate", "Love or Like"). He starred in Gokusen 2 with Kame and now also the drama Anego (2005 summer season).

With Kame, he is one of the two most famous KAT-TUN members due to his looks and his voice. He plays the guitar, has a fabulous voice, and writes many songs for himself and KAT-TUN ("Care", "Hesitate", "Love or Like", "Murasaki""). He often takes the hardest parts of the songs because of his impressive vocal range, especially when compared to his bandmates' limited ones. He starred in Gokusen 2 with Kame, Anego, and a dorama special called Kurisumasu Nante Daikirai (I Hate Christmas).

    Tanaka naturally gets called Koki. His role in the group is as the main rapper. He writes most of the rap lyrics in their recent original songs and has started to write his own solo rap songs. His style is hip-hop. Although Koki looks really tough, he is actually sweet and kind. Koki pairs up with Nakamaru most of the time and they have a comedic unit called TaNaka.

    Blood Type: B
    Height: 170.5cm

    More infos from Wikipedia: He naturally gets called Koki. He is the main rapper of the group. He writes most of the rap lyrics in their recent original songs and has started to write his own solo rap songs.

Currently starring 'Kazuya' of drama 'My Boss, My Hero' with Nagase Tomoya from TOKIO and Tegoshi Yuya

    Ueda, the appointed leader of the group, is one of KAT-TUN's most striking members. Because he tends to change his image a lot he has been criticized for being "unstable" in terms of personality. He is learning the English language and plays the guitar.
    Born: October 4, 1983
    Blood Type: B
    Height: 171cm
    Weight: 48kg
    Drama(s): N/A
    More infos from Wikipedia: He is the official leader of the group. Fans and group members call him Tat-chan or Uebo. He is one of the most striking members of KAT-TUN and he tends to change his image a lot. He is learning the English and French language (just like Gackt does - he's a big fan of Gackt, to the point that he was obsessed with looking exactly like Gackt for a long period of time). ). It is rumored among his fans that Ueda could highly be the mysterious ‘SPIN” who has written countless KAT-TUN songs such as Le Ciel and GOLD. It would make sense Ueda being SPIN, because he speaks or is learning French as well as English, and so could well have written the French lyrics in "Le Ciel". However, no other concrete evidence has surfaced to support this rumor. He is most famous for his solo performance Love in Snow as well as his piano and guitar skills among KAT-TUN fans. So far, he is the only member of KAT-TUN who doesn't star in a drama. Recently he is doing gintore (muscle training) for boxing, and that seems to be influence of Dream Boys.

    [​IMG]
    Nakamaru, or Maru, the oldest member, is very funny. He proves that by being in the TaNaka comedy unit with Koki. Maru's trademark skill is his human beatbox (sound of beats he creates with his mouth) that gets incorporated in KAT-TUN's songs a lot. Because of this skill, he seems to be gaining more popularity recently.
    Born: September 4, 1983
    Blood Type: 0
    Height: 176cm
    Weight: 55kg
    Drama(s): Kindaichi shonen no Jikenbo (2005)
    More infos from Wikipedia: He, the oldest member, is very funny. He is in the TaNaka comedy unit with Koki to complement this. Maru's trademark skill is his human beatbox (sound of beats he creates with his mouth) that gets incorporated in KAT-TUN's songs a lot. He spent a lot of time practicing and for every chance he had, he would try to get practise. It seems that he has been learning it for some years already. Because of this skill, he is gaining more popularity recently.He also start to write songs. Like "Understandable", is a song that he wrote himself. In songs that he song, he will try to add in beatbox.He is normally called Yucchi by Japanese fans, but sometimes called Nakama or Maru by fans from other Asian countries. To fans that wrote letter to him, there is a rumour that he does reply fan mail.

    Everybody, post it away! ^^

    At first, I thought they are gayest but once you see them from behind-the-scene videos, you would fall in love with them especially Kame&Jin <3! Well, for me... =P

    Junno, I used to think he's adorably hot, but somehow I have seen him performing on the stage often- he looks odd so I can say he's very photogenic than being on live/variety shows. -___-;; I don't really like Koki's rapping, but in some songs- it fits very well. =] He's probably not a great-looking guy in this band (my opinion, okay?!) I looove Ueda! His face has some shyness/mysterious to it that makes me wanting to know him even more. Maru, he does have a good beat boxing skill seriously- very smoothing. I was hoping that he would rap more than Koki's, but he mainly sings in box beating. =/

    Mmmm... what's else? I can't think of it yet but to notify you that I will try my best to update this band as much as I can find. ^^v

    Oh yeah~ Jin is hot and so fione!
    My fave 3 guys will be Jin&Kame&Ueda. =D
