Kis-My-Ft2 member embroiled in firey mole controversy

Kis-My-Ft2, who has recently hit #1 with their single, "SHE! HER! HER!" on the Oricon charts and dominated half of the Recochoku Chaku-uta top 10 with songs from their new album, is an unstoppable force these days. With the announcement of their new variety show, the boys are being labeled the "second SMAP" and it seems from here on out their exposure will only increase.

One member of the group, Nikaido Takashi, who may play a somewhat subdued position in the group, has recently been the topic of many fan discussions over a certain visual point.

"Frankly, there are questions arising about him having a fake mole. Beneath his eye there is a large "tear-mole" and many say it's a "sexy" or "amorous," charm point it seems like the mole is fake. Several years ago, the mole appeared suddenly, but because it seemed done with his own hands, depending on the day it looked darker or lighter, bigger or smaller, and sometimes it even disappeared. Fans are very bothered by this," said a Johnny's Entertainment reporter.

In photos and videos, sometimes skin is corrected to eliminate blemishes and freckles, and it's possible that the mole could have been erased through those methods, not he himself drawing on or forgetting to draw on his mole. But nonetheless, longtime Kisumai fans have decried the mole as being a "hindrance," and asking "Why would they do such a pointless thing?" Others have said "It doesn't suit him" and the mole is becoming extremely unpopular.

"They're doing it to up his business fortunes," "His face isn't special so they did it to add character," and other speculations have been flying about the reason behind the fake mole. Some are even going as far to say that the mole has been tattooed on recently, but at the end of the day we still do not know the truth behind it.

A "tear mole" (nakibokuro) is said to be a symbol of a person with "heavy emotions, and is tender-hearted" and other JE idols such as Takizawa of Tackey & Tsubasa, Nishikido Ryo of Kanjani8 and singer Fukuyama Masaharu also have the "tear-mole." And if one thinks about the amount of popular celebrities with it, it definitely could be something used to up one's charms. One has to wonder if Nikaido's fortunes will follow the same path.

Translation - qummydino

haters are pressed they dont got a sexy nakibokuro tbh!

Theyre calling them second SMAP because their manager is the same as SMAP's shes doing the same strategy to Kisumai as she did for SMAP.

Only fans call them second KATTUN because they kinda have the same history and style before debut, but I kinda hate to think theyre like KATTUN because to me theyre far from KATTUN.

but I dont want them to be called any of this, honestly its too early.

They're not being called as second SMAP, but Hamaguchi san, the MC of Kisumai's variety show (Hamakiss) said he aims to make the boys become the second SMAP.
Even the Japanese source OP attached above said "AIM" not "LABELLED" =(

Second SMAP, second whatsoever. Kisumai is Kisumai.
And Nikaido's flawless. Arguments are invalid.

Add Yuto Nakajima to the list!! I swear that guy's tear-mole is authentic.

It's not completely surprising that Kis-My-Ft2 are being called the second SMAP, because they both have the almighty Iijima Michi as their manager. Kis-My-Ft2 is probably the only other group she has managed this closely besides SMAP, so it's not surprising to see similarities in their early career paths.

"tear mole" of course is a very interesting topic for kisumai fans to discuss. anything to get their minds off their idols' decreasing single sales and never-happening relevancy.

wonderful post, as usual, OP :)
jeugd1 6th-Apr-2012 06:02 am (UTC)
OP why didn't you use a better pic to show non-fans (95% of Arama) the mole on his face?
squallina 6th-Apr-2012 06:07 am (UTC)
Cyzowoman has been comparing Arashi to SMAP for years yet they've decided KisuMai is the second SMAP? Oh Cyzo, please do make up your minds. Then again we do know the amount of hate you have for Arashi.

Back on topic. I'm no expert on moles, but blemishes that are similar to real moles can occur and become permanent. I have them. 3/5 of Arashi have them (Aiba, Nino, Jun have moles now that they didn't have when they were younger.) Just saying.

Then again if Takashi is drawing it on himself, that's a little bit sad. He shouldn't have to change himself like that (or even feel pressured to do so.) :( Seriously the entertainment industry often makes me smh at its antics and silliness.

Kisumai are not labelled as the second SMAP, but the article said that they AIM to be the second SMAP.
This stuff is actually coming from Kisumai's variety show (Hamakiss) where the MC, Hamaguchi san said he aims to make the boys become the second SMAP. That's all, I don't understand how can AIM become LABELLED =( This is totally a misunderstanding and confusion.
