    I was a fan of KAT-TUN back then in 2007-2009, when they had 6 members, but I lost interest in them and in jpop and jdramas as well.
    I know Akanishi Jin left them in 2010 and now, he is married & has a baby, but what about the others? Kame?
    Also, I really liked Yamashita Tomohisa (Yamapi) and Nishikido Ryo too, and I know nothing about them.
    If someone has info about them, don't hold back!;)

    Here some cuties fo ya all:

    I'll try to explain this with the info I know about them. KAT-TUN has really declined ever since the two members left after Jin, Two members left after that, Tanaka for a scandal and Taguchi because of shift in career. Only three remain (Kame, Ueda, Nakamaru)

    Yamapi and Ryo are both under JE (Johnny's Entertainment) the same company as KAT-TUN xD I'm surprised you didn't know them. ^^

    Ryo is a member of osaka based boy band KANJANI8. KANJANI8 is primarily a group releasing songs mixing modern and traditional Japanese music. It did change over the years, to cope up with the times xD they will also do pop and rock in tone. I still think their enka pop is that one concept I really like about them. One thing I really love about them is also comedy and entertainment, among JE idols, kanjani8 has performed songs in a "mankai" format (hmm like comedic songs). and is very entertaining and fun to watch. This is why they are my fave.
    Also one thing, kanjani8 is originally 8 (hence the name) but two members (Uchi & Subaru T.T) left in different time frames. The six remaining and currently active are (Okura, Yu, Ryo, Shota, Shingu, Maru). Ryo is my 3rd fave after Yu and Okura.

    Yamapi is pretty known as an actor. but he is actually part of NEWS (also a jpop group from JE) but left to focus on solo career in music. As an actor and personality, JE handles all his activities and schedules, but bec he went out of NEWS, he signed under another record label to release his songs.

    Wow, thank you for all the information. ^^
    I know Yamapi and Ryo is under JE, I meant it like I don't know anything about them now. xD I stopped following their work (and KAT-TUN) around 2010 and heard no news about them, like what they are doing now. I thought maybe they stopped working in the music industry or already are married, but it seems like neither. Is Ryo still has an acting career, too? :)
