He originally failed the Johnny’s Jrs audition, but on his way out he met Johnny who liked him and so let him join. (Edited because of translation error)
His type of girl is young, high-school age, plump but not fat, sexy but without acting it, with common sense and nice lips, kind, one who doesn’t dress “scandalously”.
MAY ’05 – At the moment Jin’s favourite thing is sleeping. The first thing he notices about girls are their lips, and he dislikes “scandalous” clothing.
OCT ’05 – What Jin says he has to offer a girlfriend: Nice friends for her to meet, he’ll try his best for her, he’ll go wherever she wants to go, and she’ll be able to sleep with him.
He has a belly-button piercing and one or two ear piercings.
He wanted to be an actor so that he could kiss lots of beautiful women.
He has an obsession with America and England, and wanted to try a homestay in one of the countries someday – which he did in 2007.
He writes more of KAT-TUN’s songs than people think – Ueda revealed that Jin doesn’t take credit for a lot of the songs he makes.
In his sleep he sometimes shouts out words in English (like “Stop!”).
He is very ticklish on his collar-bone.
He says that Yamashita Tomohisa (YamaP) is his best friend, but Kame is the person he cares most about in the world.
His first kiss was with the star of the drama “Anego” (the kiss scene in episode 2), for which he was so nervous that he cleaned his teeth before every take (and had to do about 19 takes).
~ Jin is always mistaken as a player because of his appearance. Ueda said that Jin is a type of person, that wouldn’t talk behind other people’s back even if he’s annoyed at the person.
~ Jin is cohabiting with Yamapi and they said that once they had a giant fight that they didn’t talk for about 3 months.
~ In October 2006, Jin announced that he would be taking a hiatus for at least 3 months because he was going to study aboard. On April 19 2007, Jin came back to Japan and gave a press conference to announce his return to KAT-TUN on April 20.
