After a successful audition televised in 2004, Ryosuke was selected to join the monolithic Johnny's Talent Agency in Japan, famous for manufacturing impossibly famous boybands, actors, and male models. He acted as a backdancer for years, but showed an immediate aptitude for dance. He was steadily trusted with larger parts closer to center stage, and was eventually selected to take part in the group of young talents known as "Hey!Say!7" showcasing the ability of youth in Japan ("Hey! Say!" is a pun on Heisei, the current era in Japan which began in 1989. All members of this group were born in Heisei). Since the group's debut (and subsequent namechange to "Hey!Say!Jump" after welcoming additional members), Ryosuke has become one of the most popular members, due in part to the success he's recieved from acting roles in several high-profile dramas.
