About kissing Teruki ...
Never thought I would write about this. Well, as a child in the 80s, I had a huge crush on Boy George …. go google him. So I guess you can see, a celebrity’s orientation is not an issue to me. But I’m also not keen on seeing untrue “info" being spread about the very people I dedicate my blog to.
This is the follow-up to my reply to my friend’s question about the sexuality of MY FIRST STORY’s vocalist Hiroki.
I’m also going to touch a bit about guitarist Teruki as he seems to be dragged into this as well (I know many fans fantasize about these two getting it on together LOL😆).
1. They already said they’re not gay
Hiro and Teru already said they’re not gay through this photo.
Teru: The vocalist of a certain band is sleeping on my lap. #not gay #you’re cute when you’re silent #vocalist of a certain band #headed for Summer Sonic
Hiro: I’m not homo yo! ( ﾟдﾟ)」 I love girls! @(・o・)@
They were travelling in a van! Touring musicians yo! They were headed for Summer Sonic Festival. He was tired and he wanted to rest. Where else could he squeeze in that cramped van? Luckily, Hiro is small enough to curl up like that.
I love how Hiro replied to Teru TWO HOURS after. It means Teru was such a good sport letting his little friend rest on him for THAT long. Imagine the cramps Teru might have gotten LOL😃. Sleeping on your friend’s lap doesn’t necessarily connote something sexual yo!
What’s the big deal with him using Teru’s thigh as his pillow? After all, Hiro is the type who can fall asleep anywhere and Teru has always been the one who enjoys showing “sleeping Hiro" to the world the most. As usual, Teru only saw it as funny.
On a side note ….
Teru himself is also very open to affectionate friendships 😊
Because that’s the kind of friendship he has with his best friend Taikan, which occasionally includes brotherly hugs and friendly kisses. Taikan once tweeted their photo together and captioned it “Thank you for our friendship. I love you!“. Yes, he wrote “Aishiteru!” for Teruki. No, Taikan isn’t gay either.
2. Hiro likes women
I’d seen Hiro talked about his taste in women in 3 separate video interviews already so far. Then, there’s the ViVi magazine one too.
3. Is this about stereotyping?
I hope these people are not stereotyping sexual orientation through the way Hiro dresses and his level of comfort in showing his emotions to the world. Hey, must straight people be conventional, expressionless and boring?
4. Hiro is a child of divorce yearning for love & affection
True that Hiro enjoys affection from those he’s close to such as his band members. We must remember he was only 11 when his family split up. He didn’t get to enjoy that love & family environment for very long.
The fact that he likes older people is a hint of a boy who’s craving for that love and trying to fill up that missing chunk of his life through the bond he shares with his friends particularly the older ones. We all know how attached he is to the 10yrs-older band leader Sho by now. Then, just look at how quickly he bonded with guys twice his age like HYDE, Aki, Gackt and Daigo.
Hiro is just missing and yearning for that part in his life. He wants a family. Just look at how his brother Taka treated him when they were kids. Don’t you think he misses those moments every day of his life? His friends seem more than happy to give him hugs and shoulders to cry on. Why not? He deserves it.
5. Finally, about kissing Teru …..
Back to Hiro & Teru again. I’m sure there are those who made assumptions about Hiro because they saw this particular photo …. (among others from that night).
Here’s the story.
It was Hiro’s 20th birthday bash when he became legal in Japan to drink alcohol. So, his friends bought him a few bottles of pretty strong liquor. Sho posted the photo of those bottles that night.
Translation by me.
@MFSMAKI 主役登場(*´ `*)お誕生日おめでとう―！

Kiss-attacking Teruki. Teruki is saying “Help”. Me, not gonna help.
MY FIRST love.
Hiro ga goukyuu shi hajimemashita! osake no yowasa wo omoishitta you desu! toriaezu, fai! minna Hiro ga daisuki da yo!
Hiro started to cry! Looks like he has realized about how scary alcohol is. Meanwhile, fight on*! Everybody loves Hiro yo!
* Not sure what she meant with ふぁい。So I just guessed LOL
So, how badly drunk was Hiro?
Bear in mind, this was his 1st experience. I don’t remember who took this last party photo but Hiro looked the most drunk in it. He probably had to be carried back home by the end of the night. Though he likes to say, “When it’s drinking time, I drink. When it’s not drinking time, I don’t!“, but I highly doubt he ever gets to this level again nowadays. If you notice, he doesn’t even take beers with his meals.
Note: Special thanks to MY FIRST STORY Thailand FB Fanpage for keeping the captions from those photo tweets.
A friend of mine said Hiro made a bet which he lost and he had to kiss his friends as a result. I can’t reconfirm that because their Twitter accounts are gone now. However, I do remember Sho and Maki tweeting something along the line, “Woah! Who’s the next victim to be kissed?! Run!! Haha!!”. So, it was a crazy game they were playing really, to celebrate Hiro’s coming-of-age.
Hmm …. come to think of it, if you actually look at the real situation, there was nothing even remotely sexual about all the kissing.
To all those who simply assume things about others, please do your research first! When you see a photo, look at the whole context.
