Member of Boy Group Goes on Diet for a Role

A member of the boy group, “Hey! Say! Jump”, Ryosuke Yamada (22 years old), has mentioned that he spent two weeks eating almost nothing in order to lose weight for a role in the television drama, “母さん、俺は大丈夫”(roughly translated to ” Mother, I Am All Right”).

Yamada stated that he does not recommend this weight loss method, but that it suited him, as he is good at concentrating hard over a short period of time.
