Yamada Ryosuke of Hey! Say! JUMP graces 'FRaU' magazine's November cover, dedicated to "Sustainable Beauty." In this feature, he discusses his unique take on beauty, emphasizing the importance of his versatile identity that inspires others.
Despite his long-standing career, Yamada remains at the forefront, recently securing his first lead role in a love story film.

Yamada's journey began in 2007 when he debuted, and since then, he has continued to run at the forefront of the entertainment world. In July, he even ranked second in the "Adult Category" of the "National Treasure-Level Handsome Rankings," a testament to his continuous growth and challenges in both his acting and artistic careers.
As he enters his 30s, Yamada's innate striking visuals have matured further, exuding a sense of grown-up charm. He passionately dedicates himself to his roles as an idol, content creator, and actor, seeing his unexpected versatility as his unique identity and an inspiration for his juniors.
The photoshoot for this feature took place in the sweltering heat of late July, showcasing Yamada's unwavering star presence. This feature, spanning eight pages, delves deep into Yamada's thoughts on beauty and his multi-faceted career.
In addition to Yamada Ryosuke, this issue also spotlights Naniwa Danshi's Joichiro Fujiwara, who embarked on a remarkable journey from his early days as a Johnny's Jr. to becoming a rising star in the entertainment world.
