Nakai Masahiro is the leader of SMAP, a very popular group in Japan. He entertains us by many ways, for example, on TV, radio, the movies, and the concerts of SMAP. He has brown hair and a cute face.

He passed the audition for "Jannise Office" when he was in the second grade of junior high school. Then, he danced in the background of Hikarugenji as a member of Skate Boys consisted of twelve members. Six people out of twelve members were chosen when SMAP was organized in 1988.

He is working hard, of course as a member of SMAP, but also as an individual TV "talent". He appears on many TV programs, not only music programs but also teleplays, variety shows, and commercials. He appeared on teleplays, such as "Gakkoeikou" in 1991, "Ajiichimonme" and "Kagayaku Tokino Nakade" in 1995, "Ajiichimonme 2" and "Syourino Megami" in 1996. He appears on "Waratte Iitomo" regularly since 1994. Now he is the master of ceremonies of "Kiss Shita? SMAP" and "Nakaikun Onsen". He also has a radio program, "Some Girl SMAP". Now he is the newscaster of "Sunday Jungle" with Asagi Kuniko since 1995. "Utaban", the new TV program, started in October. He is the master of ceremonies of that program with Ishibashi Takaaki.

I think he is a talented entertainer. I hope he charms us with his big smile forever.
