Since today is Kyomoto Taiga’s birthday, I just wanted to share a little something with you guys.
As you may or may not know, one of the guys that always formed the duo with Taiga for many years was a boy by the name of Uekusa Yuta.
He is the son of Uekusa Katsuhide from Shounentai.
When his parents got a divorce back in 2009, he quit Johnny’s and changed his name to Higuchi Yuta.
In 2011, he won the Photogenic Award for the 24th Junon Boy Contest.
But that’s not what I wanted to talk about today.
Every day on Taiga’s birthday, he posts a tweet on his Twitter account celebrating Taiga’s birthday.
The left photo is from last year, and the right one is from today.
The first one says:
"Forever a rival, and forever my friend.
A best friend that overcame many obstacles with me.
I’ll try my hardest too!”
The second photo says:
Happy birthday! ^^”
After a year, he now is finally able to openly admit his best friend’s name, something that probably required a lot of courage because he’s no longer a Johnny’s. However, he was able to do this because of his supporting fans and because of his love for Taiga.
Together these two boys went to school for many years, stood on stage as a pair countless times, and shared many many memories that only true friends could share. When a person quits a company, we tend to think that they are gone, and that is the reality. However, they are actually alive, and happy, perhaps in a better state than before. They have now turned into fans, as well, supporting their friends and members on. These are the people that are the “Number 1 fans,” and this is the type of strong relationship that ensures true friendship: something that is unbreakable even after many years have passed.
thank you Yuta for doing this for us <3
Happy birthday Taiga! hope you have a good one!! enjoy your last year before becoming an adult :D
Walaupun gw gak kenal Uekusa, tapi gw selalu senang mendengar cerita tentang dia dan Taiga.
Mengetahui kalau adek (baca: idola) lu punya sahabat itu menyenangkan. Yaa, menyenangkan mengetahui mereka punya kehidupan normal seperti kita. Dan persahabatan dua anak ini cute banget menurut gw. Thats why i reblogged this post :)
(yang lucu adalah.. Uekusa punya temen (segrup) di agensi yang sekarang, yang… MIRIP BANGET sama Taiga! haha, namanya Taiki xD)
Btw, dek… aku mau bikin birthday post buat kamu bingung ini ;;___;;
