Yamada Ryosuke Puts “Body and Soul” for his 1st Solo Single
Last Jan 9th, Hey!Say!JUMP‘s Yamada Ryosuke attended the preview event for NTV’s “Kindaichi Shonen no Jikenbo~Hong Kong Kowloon Zaiho Satsujin Jiken~“. The said event happened at Imperial Theater, which is the same venue for “Johnny’s World” stage play.
Yamada Ryosuke engaged in a “talk-show” with fellow JUMP member Arioka Daiki, who also co-starred with Yamada in Kindaichi. Yamada also performed the drama’s theme song,”Mystery Virgin“, which was also released as his debut solo single the same day. Afterwards, Yamada surprised his fans with a janken tournament and handshake meeting that delighted 1,200 fans who attended the event.
Yamada recognized his growth from his 1st solo single, “It was uneasy at first since I’ll be alone and not with the group, my voice have changed and I have to appear sultry as well.” Nevertheless, Yamada is proud of his first solo single, “I put my body and soul for the song,” he said with confidence.
“Kindaichi Shonen no Jikenbo~Hong Kong Kowloon Zaiho Satsujin Jiken~” will air this Jan 12th, 9:00PM (JST) on NTV.
