KinKi Kids are Domoto Tsuyoshi, 堂本剛 (32) and Domoto Koichi, 堂本光一 (32), both hailing from the Kinki region of Japan. Both joined Johnny's Entertainment in 1994 and they made their debut in 1997 with their single Glass no Shounen, which made them a number one on the hit chart ORICON for many weeks and sold well over 1,000,000 copies. They are also listed in the Guinness Book of Records, where they are credited with having most number of consecutive singles that debuted at #1 on their charts. As of December 2010, all 30 of their singles have debuted at #1. They also have a long running show, Shin Domoto Kyoudai, which hosts celebrity guests and broadcasts weekly on Sundays.
Widely known in Japan, the KinKi Kids are very popular among girls of all ages, and their subscription concerts even draw boys. Not only do they sing, but they are also talented actors, having appeared in popular dramas, movies, and commercials both alone and together. For example, Tsuyoshi played a part in Kindaichi Shounen no Jikenbo and Summer Snow, and Koichi was in Remote as well as Sushi Ouji. However despite their shared surnames they are in fact completely unrelated and hail from two different prefectures in the Kinki region.
KinKi Kids are signed and promoted by Johnny and Associates. Other well-known Johnny and Associates groups include SMAP, TOKIO, V6, NewS and Arashi.
