When i got this message in my inbox from my buddy Tribble, i rushed here straight away...
Yeah tuff question coz i kinna had a tuff time seeing Gackt, KinKi Kids and Kat-tun up there (my favs)...

BUT i chose KinKi Kids...coz i c the Q askin which has the most chance of being a success in the west. Which means: not just albums and singles sales ladies and gents...


Y?

1. They are both multi-talented
2. Both of them have their own uniqueness
3. Both of them have good behaviors (yeah, i'll explain below)

First: Multi-talented

I mean, come on KinKi Kids has Domoto Tsuyoshi who is not only a singer, songwriter and composer but he is also an illustrator with his own book and he even acts well winning best actor awards. Of course not forgetting he's one of Japan's fashion leaders. In fact, Oricon made a survey among secondary school students who do they look up to in terms of fashion? - Domoto Tsuyoshi got first place and that defines his style is liked by many.


Want me to start on Domoto Koichi? Koichi is once called the only one who can be Japan's Prince. I bet if they do air 'Remote' in the west people might fell for his good looks and prince-like appearance.
Also,
He composes songs for many of his juniors before they debut and he even produced his own groups - ING, J-support (later KKKitty) and KAT-TUN...
Yup, I totally agree Domoto Koichi is a Dancing King. I
just watched Endless Shock 2005 ACT1 dloaded from http//:crimsonnataku.livejournal.com and he's awesome in dat..
and talk bout his singing, to me he's getting better and better..i usually melt when i listen to Tsuyoshi's voice but recently i've been melting listening to Koichi's voice too He even voice acts for anime-Jyu oh sei..Even Juniors described him as 'Kakkoi'..

Dont forget Domoto Kyoudai

I got hooked on them since i watched DK. Both of them are even talented and hilarious MCs.

With talents like above, all ages and both gender can get hooked on 'em..

Second: Uniqueness

Ok, i'm gonna start talkin c>>p here..

Name me someone from the choices given (kat-tun, arashi, gackt etc) a guy who has a moustache?
Domoto Tsuyoshi. ok just now he shaved it off.
Does it ever occur to ya that he's like the only Johnny's that ever owns a moustache..i dunno bout the older senpais thou.
n plus 244 endli-x 's music is sugoi so unique



Domoto Koichi, he dances like a Prince like totally..He's got grace n charm that not many Johnny's have. And the music he composes, 'Renrui', 'Ai no katamari', 'Solitude...', 'Suki ni natteku aishiteku' and 'Giniro angou' they dont sound the same do they? ;)

Third: Good behaviour

I once watched this show on youtube..from Taiwan i think..the host said that he has friends who are reporters and his friend said that in Johnny's the ones with good behaviors are KinKi Kids and Arashi and those who are most successful are SMAP and KinKi Kids...

Koichi in an interview regardin his drama or Shock had been asked the same questions over and over again but he still manages to answer patiently with a smile on his face..i think even i cant do that. We can feel how Sawajiri Erika felt a while ago when she was asked the same question but she had a frown on her face..hmmm

so, to be successful does in fact need good behaviors includin discipline

yikes what am i blathering a lot here. sorry for the use of space guys...

OK, even with all the above i think i there's only one thing dat makes em not
the weakling here : their name-KinKi Kids

i bet if they changed their name to Domoto Bros. Band perhaps they can go outside..

or maybe its just me...

subete wa gomen...

KinKi wa daisuki dayo...

Koichi is a SERIOUS dance machine but a machine with heart and doesnt minna looove the intense expression on his face when he starts dancing? and also it always looks to me like he has extra vertibrae in his back and everything he does is sooo wonderful!!

I would definitely go for Koichi Domoto of KinKi Kids
I was fascinated by the musical that he acted every year "SHOCK"
Those flying scene, battle scene and those dangerous stunt in SHOCK
Recently his first movie towards the west "Sushi Prince" can be counted a great start
