When any actors have been asked about how they entered the industry, they would usually say like auditions, scouted on the streets, or from a magazine. But in case Kiita Komagine (Kaito Goshikida / Zenkaizer) reveals a new story of entering the industry. That is being found on Instagram. He talks about this in his recent interview with Walkerplus.
I got a DM from the Talent Agency (Horipro Digital Entertainment). I am a person who usually doesn't think much. I felt like for now I meet them. If I think about it now, it was really an interesting thing. (laughs) That time I was in High School 2nd year. Instagram was trending that time so I thought of starting. It was a self-sufficient world. I used to post things about my life. I never thought that would connect to this work. Because I used to study at an Agricultural School, I used to post pics of myself holding a hoe in the field, cultural festival and memories of my school days. It was a tool to see what students of other local school were doing.
