CROSS GENE’s Takuya shared his honest thoughts about his life in Korea for the past six years.

Mr. Takuya has been honest about his feelings for six years in Korea. 

I met Cross Jean Takuya in the Top Star News interview room on Nonhyeon-dong, Gangnam-gu, Seoul,

Takuya made his debut in the Korean entertainment industry with his mini album 'TIMELESS: BEGINS' as a cross member in 2012. 


Before his debut as a cross-jun member, he received a special prize at the 2008 Zunon Superbowl Contest in Japan. I was fortunate to win a contest that my mother supported me for the fun of "Do you want to be able to do that?" 

He started his career in the Japanese entertainment industry first, and in 2010 he went to Korea and challenged his debut group Boy. The image of Korea that Takuya first met was 'cold and strange country'.

"When I first came to Korea, my eyes fell. It was really cold and strange. On that day, I went to a party with company people and ate kimchi fried rice, but it was too hot. That's most memorable. "

Takuya, who did not know Korean at the time, studied Korean language with a teacher who had been attached to her agency for almost a year. And gradually, I was able to talk with people around me, and I studied alone and got used to it naturally.


The culture of Korea that he especially liked was 'Jeong'.

"Should I say Korean brother, brother culture? I like that. In Japan, you do not call your sister or sister well unless you are a family. But in Korea, my brother, my sister, my sister is not like that. I do not have a family, but I like it to feel as close as that. "


Takuya is the most unusual talks of JTBC's popular entertainment program in 2014. At that time, he had a fluent Korean ability, a warm appearance, personality and pretty hands, and he received a great love with the nickname 'Island Island Ox'. 

And in 2015, he challenged acting through Mnet 'The Rubber'. 'The Rubber' is a drama about the most personal and universal story that can happen between men and women living together through 4 couples living together in 0 ~ 30s.

At the time, Takuya and the actor Lee Jae Joon played host to a South and South couple living in the 709, and became a hot topic. When he came up with a story about his filmography, he laughed at the fact that he did not know he was such a dark couple at first, referring to "The Rubber." 

"I knew it was a south and south couple, but I did not know it was so serious. When I shot it, it got closer and closer. One time, I went to Rajun Lee and Apgujeong Rodeo to eat, but people around me recognized it. However, since I only go with them, I was misunderstood as 'I do not really meet two people'. There are some people who still misunderstand, but it is not really. (laugh)"

Takuya has acted as an actress during the vacant period, appearing in the musical "Alta Boyz" after the "The Rubber" and the web drama "I Love Your Face: Coincidentally in japan". 

"It's fun to play. It's definitely different from going on stage with a singer. "It's tempting to be able to live the life of a character other than me. And it is good to breathe with other actors and staffs, "explained the charm of acting. 

There is a character that I would like to challenge especially. 

"In my recent musical" Alta Boyz, "the character I was working with was really nice and cute and cute. So I thought I wanted to do the opposite character. I want to play a chic and heavy role. "

A musical that needs to catch both the song and the smoke rabbit. Not only that, all the performances were live, and there were many hardships.

"'Alta Boyz' is a show musical, so it's kind of like we're doing a concert. But if the concert is just what I want to say in a given composition, the musical tells the story of the character, not me. " 

"I had a reenactment in Japan this time, but with my Korean and Japanese ambassadors, I suddenly had no hair. In the end, I did not think of the words I wanted to speak in Japanese, so I asked members who appeared together. "


Takuya who became debut in cross-jin member in 2012 and became the singer of six years.

When asked about the changes he made at the beginning of his debut, he said, "I do not think that six years is short. I have a lot of experience in it, and I feel that there are many parts that matured while eating my age. " Originally, I was a bit nervous and a bit timid, but I changed a lot when I was living in Taji. "

So far, there has been a slump in the entertainment industry.

Takuya, who had been worried for a while, said, "I had a member change at the beginning of my debut, but it was a bit difficult. At that time, I was not an archetype, but I was a leader, and I seem to have had a lot of things that I can not do. "

Then there must be a way to overcome the slump.

"This is my life, and that's my life, so I'm just going to enjoy it. There are times like this and there are times like that too. It's a lot of open space, "he said.

"The motto of life is 'to live today'. The future is also important, but it is important now, so I feel happiness in the present and I think that I will have a good future without regret later. "
