IBT4_Renn4Renn is probably best known for his role in tokusatsu series, Kamen Rider W, as Hidari Shoutaro. I think that role suits him well. Trying hard to be cool while inside he’s a soft and fragile person? Yup, that’s our Renn !

from Renn-a-day

He’s currently working under Hirata Office talent management (yeah, along with Tabe Mikako, Miyazaki Aoi, Nagaoka Takuya, Suzuki Shogo and Hasegawa Hiroki). He  is also known for portraying Marui Bunta in Prince of Tennis Musical. He gets his first main role in RUN 60 movie. He gets more chance to appear in large screen in 2011 as he stars in Kimi e and Kichijoji no Asahina kun.

Personal Life

Renn was born on Feb 2nd, 1985 in Kanagawa. He hosts an internet radio program called MRW along with Shindo Gaku (do you still remember him right?). He’s 175 cm tall and is an O type blood guy. Renn-according to my observation-is a shy guy who often being clumsy. It was his lack of confident that cause him holding back all the potency inside him. *There are many good things about you, Renn!*

As a senpai, Renn gets along well with Masaki Suda, his co-actor in Kamen Rider W. Sudacchi describes his as an outspoken and straight forward person who’s not only saying good things, but also bad things to advice this young actor. While Sudacchi calls him “Renn san”, Renn calls him “Masaki”.  *He knows how to treat people!*

He’s open personality that enable people to laugh with him. But, when the opponent doesn’t feel the same way, he’s easily feeling discomfort. *aren’t we all like that?*

I see him as a cute funky person. Okay, sometimes he just tries too hard to look fun. He often portrays a stupid funny character. And he’s good at it. He’s the kind of guy who always make me smile. I think the best character he played is Hidari Shoutaro. He is so….Shoutaro. lol. Let me make it clear, I don’t see him as ikemen. He’s just….attractive, super attractive, irresistible….

ikimono-1On a variety  about animal , ikimono ni thank you (トコトン掘り下げ隊!生き物にサンキュー! ちゃんと見た事ない生き物SP, 2015.01.21), Renn said that he likes hermit crab. XD. He could’ve say a dog lover, right?

Quoted from Fuji TV Blog:

Out of all the non-Korean stars receiving awards, Renn Kiriyama was the only winner who made his acceptance speech in Korean. As part of his speech, Kiriyama thanked the audience and said, “As an actor living in the same Asia region, I am extremely honored to receive this award. I will continue striving to contribute to Asian dramas.” The venue was overtaken by a big round of applause once he finished his speech.

Oh dear…he’s so awesome.
