Out on December 22nd, Shingo Katori will be gracing the cover of the popular men’s fashion magazine, smart. This is his first solo magazine cover since the launch of Atarashii Chizu. There will be 8-pages of photos and an interview about his fashion obsession and behind the scenes happenings of 72 Hour Honne TV.

Words from the magazine editor-in-cheif, Tomoyuki Ota:

In the past, Mr. Katori mistook our smart photography studio for a different magazine’s. When leaving, he said “I want to appear in smart too.” Since that time, I’ve wanted him to appear and my dream has finally come true. During the shooting, I didn’t think Mr. Katori would remember, but when I talked to him about it he said he remembered. I was moved.

Not-so-seriously studying Japanese. Not-so-slightly obsessed with SMAP. This blog is an outlet for my SMAP love and a way to practice my Japanese. I'm not fluent but hopefully I am successful with at least getting the gist of what goes on.
