Sexy Zone‘s Kento Nakajima is reportedly developed a drive to have whiter skin after reading some hate comments about him.
“It does not rain but he always carries an umbrella, maybe he doesn’t want to get sunburn. However, his black folding umbrella is not very conspicuous,” according to a Meiji Gakuin student.
“He is like a girl, it is amusing,” according to a guy, “though girls just use fans to shield their face [from the sun]“. Not contented with using an umbrella, Kento is also rumored to re-apply sunscreen diligently in classrooms or cafeterias; moreover, he was also seen putting a whitening lotion on his face in the washroom for his pursuit for whiter skin.
When Kento is doing dramas, he thinks that good actors should not be tanned. He is worried about getting dark especially if the location would be in the beach. Even though he sees that tanning [dark skin] is accepted overseas, he is still anxious,” according to a Johnny’s reporter.
Apparently, Kento had a tan in last spring and he received comments, like: “too dark!”, “he looked good before”, “he is becoming an Oji” and many more. Since Kento is really a serious person, he haven’t forgotten about it.
In addition to this, Kento was also rumored to have taken it badly when his recent drama did poor in ratings that he has fallen ill after reading not-so-nice comments on net.
It is really rare for an idol nowadays to be as delicate and sensitive like Kento.
