Takuya Kimura (木村 拓哉 Kimura Takuya, also known as Kimutaku, is a Japanese singer, actor, radio personality, and the member of SMAP, the best-selling boy band in Asia. He is regarded as a Japanese icon after achieving an unprecedented success as an actor and influencing Japanese culture and language, and established himself as the most successful celebrity in Asia.

Idol/Singer turned to Successful Actor, since 1996

A 1996 television series, Long Vacation, in which he landed his first lead role, became a massive success, creating a phrase called the Lonvaca phenomenon. He was given the title, "The King of Ratings", as his subsequent television series continued to generate high ratings and each show becoming a social phenomenon as they aired. Five of his most successful works are ranked in the top ten highest-rated television series in Japanese history. His 2001 series, Hero, is the all-time highest-rated program in Japan. He has also starred in blockbuster films, including Howl's Moving Castle (2004), Love and Honor (2006), and Hero (2007).
