Koichi Domoto (堂本 光一, Dōmoto Kōichi, born January 1, 1979) is a Japanese idol, singer, singer-songwriter, composer, lyricist, television personality, voice actor and actor. Along with Tsuyoshi Domoto (with whom he has no blood-relation), he is a member of KinKi Kids, which is a Japanese duo under the management of Johnny & Associates.

Career[edit]

Born in Ashiya, Hyōgo, Japan, Domoto joined the Japanese talent agency Johnny & Associates at the age of 12 after his sister sent in his application without his knowledge.[1] Domoto and his bandmate Tsuyoshi Domoto first worked together as backdancers for Hikaru Genji, who were holding a concert at Yokohama Arena,[1] and has since then been partnered up for magazine photoshoots, music acts and drama projects. The duo eventually made their debut in 1997 with a double release of a single "Garasu no Shōnen" and an album A Album, both of which went on to sell over a million copies.[1][2]

In July 2007, after five years, Domoto starred as the lead in a drama entitled Sushi Ōji!.[3] With kōhai Yuichi Nakamaru of KAT-TUN playing the role of his partner, he played the role of a martial artist training in the art of sushi.[4] In addition, about a month before the release of the drama, it was announced that Domoto would star in the movie sequel to Sushi Ōji. It was Domoto's first time starring alone in a movie, and his first movie appearance since the 1994 movie Ienaki Ko.[4] In 2008, it was announced that Domoto would not only reprise his role for the sequel to Sushi Ōji!, Ginmaku Ban Sushi Ōji!: New York e Iku, but he would also provide the theme song, marking his first time as a solo artist to sing a theme song for a movie.[5] In April 2008, Domoto's long-running musical Endless Shock was awarded the Grand Prize of the 33rd Kazuo Kikuta Drama Awards for theater.[6] Later that month, Domoto traveled to New York City to attend the American premiere of his Sushi Ōji! movie, which was screened at the Walter Reade Theatre.[7]

2009 saw Domoto's first solo single release in nearly three years. Titled "Ayakashi", it topped the Oricon charts by selling 151,000 copies in the first week of its release.[8]

On September 1, 2010, Domoto released BPM, his first solo album in four years. He will also begin his solo tour on September 11, 2010.[9]
