    Posted on his school's official website November 2016 (the year Yoshi became a YGEX trainee).

    Yoshinori was regionally competitive in primary and middle school. He was part of the Taekwon-do club/team in secondary school. At the end of middle school, he auditioned for YG so his focus changed. There are multiple posts by his dojo originating back to 2012 which allude to Yoshinori's love affair with the microphone.

    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.

    Post from Yoshinori's secondary school's official website:

    [​IMG]

    Same post in Japanese for people who love evidence. Note that the Kanji spells out 金芳典 (Kin Yoshinori) and not 金本芳典 (Kanemoto Yoshinori). This is not a typo. Yoshinori's dojo also constantly referred to him as 金芳典. Yoshinori's secondary school is a progressive Korean international school located in the suburbs of Osaka. There is no evidence Yoshinori finished his secondary education there.

    There were more pictures with medals but this was all that I could confirm.

    Yoshi's sensei regularly posted his VLIVE videos during the original run of YG Treasure Box.

    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 of Haruto's middle finger scandal a bunch of leaks came out about Yoshi. 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.

    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?

    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.
