    Yoshi appeared on ABC's (Asahi Broadcasting Corporation, Kansai) “このへん Traveler” when he was 10 going on 11. It was filmed at the Tsuruhashi dojo location in Osaka prefecture. Yoshi is the taller one of the two boys in the yellow crewnecks with a red belt.




    Two other childhood video clips are featured in this GIF:

    [​IMG]
    Note the captions on the light music club performance clip. They're in Hangul. That's because it's from EBS news. EBS is a South Korean channel. It was the one involved in the harassment scandal involving that girl from Busters. It was a story on ethnic Korean children living in Japan. He's 15 there.

    The clip of him nodding his head is from his school's sports day video on Facebook. He's 13 in that clip.​

    Not by YG nor Yoshi but I can PM you the evidence and where it's from. His surname was never even released by YG. If I remember correctly, Yoshi was the only Japanese trainee with an audition video shown on YGTB who had the name part of his personal intro cut off.

    YG and Yoshi never claimed he was full Japanese. He was on Treasure J because he was raised in Japan and Japanese is his most fluent language. Some people think he's mixed but I do not think having both Kanemotos and Kims in his family is proof. There are Kims who have naturalized to become Kanemotos. (In Japan you have to choose a Japanese surname when you become a citizen.) I have seen pictures of his mom but that does not tell me anything about her ethnicity.

    The week Kill This Love was released, a bunch of leaks came out about Yoshi (as well as Haruto). Yoshi has more publicly accessible pre-YGTB pictures than Junghwan. You just need to be tenacious and know where to look.

    This discovery has led me to feel more kinship with Yoshi -not because we share any ethnic background-but due to the effects diaspora has.

    Yoshi's such a hoe. Flirting with Jyunhao right in front of Mahiro.

    You need to give me permission to have access to your profile in order for me to PM you. You have a security feature set up. Perhaps you need to PM me first?

    I think you might be able to change your settings back now that we started the conversation.

    The banners were re-used from Yoshi's OH individual thread. They have an individual artist section separate from solo artists and groups there.

    I'm thinking about creating different banners for each forum I participate in. Depends on my work load and how many T13 pre-debut photo shoots we get.

    They either deleted or archived Yoshinori's birthday video from T13's Instagram. I am intrigued by the reason why.

    Fortunately, I recorded the video. Unfortunately, it was without sound. It's floating around with sound so I'll just re-record.

    Is it because Tous Les Jours doesn't want to be on a YG-affiliated post?
    Or was it because his Nikes weren't blurred out?

    T13 was at the YG Building yesterday.



    Yoshi was the first one out in this video.

    Roughly translates to:
    I learned that Yoshinori's face has been the best ever since childhood

    Hey, Yoshinori...

    https://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-42561815

    This is blackface and if I ever catch you doing it, I'm going to go sasaeng, find you, and personally smack you on the side of the head.

    That's it for today, love.
