I thought... since it's Yamada's birthday on the 9th I'll make an endless picspam/pimp post. He deserves one for being amazing.
山田 涼介 // Yamada RyosukeBorn:
May 9th, 1993 in Tokyo Prefecture.He lives in the Kanagawa Prefecture. (I have a bias to Kanagawa-ken because Yokohama is my favourite city.)
Usually called Yama-chan by friends and fans.
His bloody type is B and the Johnny's sempai he admires the most is Domoto Koichi
. He has said in interviews that when he was young he went to a Kinki Kids concert and he thought Koichi was really cool. We can interpret it as fanboying. :)
In an episode of Shin Domoto Kyoudai
Yamada got to sit next to Koichi and ask him about a message he sent him through a magazine (note: Koichi said "let's get some coffe and hang out sometime", but there was a typo and instead of ko-hi, it said ko-shi. It was very cute). Since then they even had a photoshoot together for one of the idol magazines. Photographs will be added later.
Yamada likes... strawberries, eggplants, meat, cooking, social studies, the color white and orange and the number 4. He doesn't like tomatoes (don't blame him) and fermented soybean (like natto for example). Random trivia about Yama-chan:
He's best friends with Nakajima Yuto
He has a collection of air riffles in his room (in a big glass case).
He has a collection of over 300 manga as well.
He's afraid of ghosts, dark places and airplanes.
He's usually quite loud, but sometimes he will be very quiet.
His favourite sport is soccer and he wanted to be a soccer player when he was younger.
Yamada got a total of 20 Jr Awards in 2008, which broke Akanishi Jin's record of 16. So now he's the most award winner.
He likes hearing the fangirls scream at concerts (and so he likes stripping to have them scream more).
Despite popular belief he's not overly confided in his dancing, singing, acting skills and like any teenagers needs help and encouragement.
He gets really attached to his drama roles and pretty much cries every time he finishes filming a project because of the overwhelming feelings.
Since this post is all about Yama-chan appreciation, his hotness, cuteness and sheer ability to make
the fangirls nosebleed, I'll start at the very beginning.
Yamada entered Johnny's Entertainment in August 12th, 2004 (he was in the 5th grade back then) through some auditions held by the Ya-ya-yah show at the time. Although I do not have have the video myself or any screencaps you can go and check it out here
. It's in two parts and Yama-chan is that squishy thing, you can't miss it. Morimoto Ryutaro also auditioned at the time.
As a Johnny's Junior he really perfected his dancing (he's said that he always practiced/practices three hours a day) and his singing.
He participated in the PVs of Seishun Amigo
(Shuuji to Akira), Venus (Tackey & Tsubasa) and Fever to Future
He's also backdanced for many concerts such as NEWS' Never Ending Wonderful Story (it's an epic 2 disc DVD tour) and even Arashi's Final Time concert
