Teppei started as a singer. He made duet with Eiji Wentz. They soon became good friends. They already spend New Year’s eve together for 4 years. The funny thing is that Teppei ever said that actually both of them has different character. He also mentions that if they both gets in the same class, he wouldn’t greet Eiji. He he

I thought, Teppei was just like another idol who can’t act. But, he shows good talent in Team Medical Dragon.

He plays Ijuin Noboru, a new doctor who has less confident. It’s bad. Because patient can’t trust that kind of doctor. Teppei was so great, that I really hate that Ijuin. Ha ha. He was nominated as Best Supporting Actor in the 49th Drama Academy Award (2006).

He was born in January 5, 1986 in Osakasayama, Osaka. He’s ‘only’ 167 cm tall. I think that’s the reason he was given the character of Atsushi Otani in Lovely Complex. He’s so cute!!!

Teppei went to Osaka Furitsu Nagano High School, before he decides to try his luck in Tokyo. The, he transfers to Horikoshi High (Pi, Toma, Shirotan and Koki’s school). The struggle must be so hard, that makes a Nakahara Aya, the author of the manga Lovely Complex, want to portray his life into a manga.it’s called “Bokura no Ibasho”.

Teppei’s name come from his mother’s favorite manga, Ore wa teppei. He maintains good relationship with his family (parents and little brother)
