A fateful encounter
My start in the entertainment world was by scout. When I was on my way to my part-time work at the cafe bar in my second year of university, I was going to be late, so I exited the ticket barrier at the train station and started to dash when somebody called out to me from behind.
Actually the day before, I had a conversation with my friend who was knowledgeable about the entertainment world. “Public entertainers are actually people who are attached to companies.” “Ehh, is that so?”. At that time he told me a lot of information about the different companies, among them he did mention the name of the company that I’m now attached to. He said something like, “Hirose-kun, your face is suitable for Stardust don’t you think?” (laughs). The next day, somebody called out to me and when I looked at the name card, I was shocked to see the name “Stardust Promotions” on it. “It’s the place that I was recommended to yesterday!” I said (laughs). Because of this flow of events, my heart was pounding as I accepted it. Even now I still (find it) strange but I really think that this is a fateful encounter.
