Ryuji Korekuni is an idol under Daikoku Production and a member of the unit KitaKore. He is voiced by Daisuke Kishio.
A stubborn and spoiled devil character. It’s not weird for him to be mistake as a woman because of his appearance. He likes sweets and always have Chupa Chuls with him.
HistoryHe was raised in a high elite family as the child of popular actor, Kenzo Matsukura, although their relationship has been kept a secret from the public. His mother is an actress and his sister is a top stylist, so his mother used to dress him up as a girl and sometimes did modeling work as one. A little over 9 years ago, he was making a snowman outside of a party when he was found by Tomohisa, who he immediately got along with and the two made snowmen together. They would later join Bambi and form KitaKore, where he was often bullied by other trainees for his father's influence.
|Umm...... For tomorrow, you'll have a recording for a music program on television in the morning. After that, we'll change locations and go right into a live broadcast for a radio.|
|Understood. Seems like it'll be quite busy.|
|Yes. I'll make arrangements so that the change in locations can go as smooth as possible.|
For the music program, it's planned for you to record the song after you finish a talk.
The schedule is tight, so it will be very chaotic while changing outfits and fixing makeup......
|That's fine, it's nothing. We're used to that.|
Anyways, Tsubasa. Haven't you been in pushing yourself too much recently?
|Eh...... Have I been?|
|That's right. After we returned home from yesterday's recording, you stayed around and helped with work.|
You know that if you overwork your body like that, you'll be disqualified as a pro, right?
|O, of course!|
|In other words, Ryuji wants to tell you to be sure to take breaks, Tsubasa, right?|
|......Tomo, you don't have to say unnecessary things.|
|Anyways...... When things get busy, it becomes easier to make mistakes.|
Be careful not to do things like when you first started out.
|First started out?|
|Tomo, do you remember? It was that. Tsubasa became our A&R and right away—|
|Kitakado-san, Ryuji-kun, please take care of me today!|
|I see, so Tsubasa is going to be coming along with us onsite starting today.|
It might be hard since you're not used to us, but if anything happens, we'll support you, so let's work hard together.
|Yes! Thank you very much.|
|I thought Yashamaru-san would be here today too...... You just entered the company and don't know anything, so why are you coming along onsite by yourself?|
|Uh, umm, I, I'll work really hard!|
|It's obvious you have to work hard since that's natural for a job. However, being able to get results from it is a different problem.|
Since you're coming onsite, make sure to understand this is a job where you have a responsibility as a pro.
I won't forgive you if you just follow us around carelessly.
|Ryuji, you can't say things like that. Anyone who starts something will have lots of things they don't know.|
Don't you think that we're good enough to be able to follow through on things ourselves?
|I think it's natural that Ryuji-kun is worried. I haven't done anything to show results, so I can't say things like I want you to blindly believe me.|
However, it's my duty to make this an enjoyable job for the two of you of KitaKore.
I intend to do whatever to make that happen!
|Fu. You're well motivated, Tsubasa. I'm counting on you, so do your best.|
Come on, Ryuji.
|......Well, do things well so that you don't hold us back.|
|How troublesome...... Sorry, Tsubasa.|
|N, no. It's okay.|
|Staff||That's all for KitaKore's rehearsal! Please do your best during the real thing too!|
|You two worked really hard.|
|Tsubasa, what about my drink?|
|You didn't bring it here?|
|I, I'm sorry! I left it in the dressing room......|
|......Hah. Next time, bring it with you.|
|Studios quite dry, so we'd like to be well hydrated.|
|I understand. Starting next time, I'll definitely—|
|Staff||Sumisora-san, should the announcement for KitaKore-san be like this?|
|Staff||Yes, I was told that Sumisora-san would know the details for the day.|
|(What should I do...... I didn't hear anything in particular from Yashamaru-san......)|
|Tsubasa, how about calling Yashamaru-san?|
|Ah, that's right. I'm sorry, I'll go confirm right away!|
|Staff||I understand. Please do it quickly.|
|Now then, it's almost time for the real thing.|
|Tomo, your bangs are getting in your eyes. Should I fix it for you?|
|Staff||Everyone, excuse me!|
|Staff||We're having some trouble with the equipment, and it will take some time now. KitaKore-san, please go wait in the dressing room!|
(We have an shoot on location after this, we have to leave this place as soon as it's over......)
Umm, excuse me......! KitaKore have another job after this, so it'll be troublesome if we arrive late......
|Staff||Even if you say that...... I can't do anything about it since we're having trouble with the equipment.|
It's not like we want to extend the recording time either.
|I, I understand. But......|
|It's fine, Tsubasa is such a worrywart for things like this.|
|Even if time is extended, we'll do things perfectly, so relax.|
We already did enough rehearsal, so it's obviously we'll do the real thing perfectly in one take ♪
|Staff||Ahaha, how reliable! Then once we've restarted shooting, we'll call for you!|
|Okay, do your best!|
|(Ryuji-kun, amazing...... He changed the atmosphere here in just an instant.)|
|......Hey, Tsubasa. It's troublesome if you behave like that just now.|
|You're our A&R, so you have to do things more impressively.|
You might be a newcomer, other places won't care about that at all.
|Yes, I understand......|
|It's unlike an A&R to let this amount of trouble disturb you, you know?|
|Ryuji, stop. What we should be doing right now is preparing beforehand.|
I assume we'll be late to arrive for the next one, so we should be reading the script now.
That way, we should be able to cut down the meeting time.
|......That's right. Then, let's hurry up and start?|
|Yeah. Tsubasa, can you contact the next place right away?|
|—It's true that something like that happened. I think the current Tsubasa is more composed when I think about how it was like back then.|
|That's certainly true. I can relax and trust in you to do most things now.|
|Fufu, thank you very much. But remembering this is a little embarrassing......|
During that time, I was really bothered by just small troubles.
|Yeah, yeah, You were always in such a panic even during normal times, but it's good that happened—|
