Yoshino Hokuto (吉野北人) is a singer, performer and actor. He's a member of the group THE RAMPAGE.
He was announced as a member of the group in April 2014. He participated in the VOCAL BATTLE AUDITION 4 and got selected as one of the vocalists of THE RAMPAGE.
Hokuto Yoshino was born on March 6, 1997, in Miyazaki Prefecture, Japan. He has an older brother.
Yoshino has been playing basketball since third grade and participated in several national competitions in his childhood. When he was in elementary school, his basketball coach told him that he should join the entertainment industry which sparked his first interest in that sector. In junior high school, he won the Miyazaki Basketball Tournament (a prefectural championship) and the best player award. At that time, he also got to know EXILE through researching them after a classmate mentioned his resemblance to EXILE's TAKAHIRO. This led him to aspire to become a full-fledged singer from high school on. The first time he sang in front of an audience was at a cultural festival of his high school where he performed the song "I love you" by Yutaka Ozaki. Afterwards, Yoshino started to take simple singing lessons and participate in karaoke competitions in his hometown. Ultimately, he also tried out for various auditions.
Since he liked EXILE, Yoshino decided to participate in the EXILE Presents VOCAL BATTLE AUDITION 4 ~Yume wo Motta Wakamono Tachi e~ at the age of 17. During the training camp of the audition he struggled with learning to dance and following the choreography since he had no prior experience but was assisted by Hidaka Ryuta (now member of BALLISTIK BOYZ). At last, Yoshino passed the audition as one of three winners out of 30.000 contestants alongside Kawamura Kazuma and Aoyama Riku and became a vocal candidate for THE RAMPAGE in April 2014. He was selected as an official member of the group after completing their first musha shugyo.
In January 2017, he made his debut in THE RAMPAGE with the single "Lightning".
In 2018, he made his acting debut in the film PRINCE OF LEGEND, playing the role of "Team Next's" prince Koki Tendo. On February 14, 2019, he attended the PRINCE OF LEGEND PREMIUM LIVE SHOW, a fan-meeting with the whole Prince of Legend cast, at Yokohama Arena. There, he performed "Too Shy", a cover of Kajagoogoo's 80s hit and insert song of the film, with Hasegawa Makoto and Fujiwara Itsuki who played the remaining members of "Team Next". On September 7 in the same year, Yoshino was invited to the 29th Tokyo Girls Collection (Autumn/Winter) at Saitama Super Arena together with the main cast of the movie HiGH&LOW THE WORST in which he stars as Tsukasa Takajo. This marked the first time he attended any fashion related event and walked a runway in his career. A few months after, he also appeared at the 30th Tokyo Girls Collection (Spring/Summer) alongside the main cast of the movie Kizoku Tanjou -Prince Of Legend-.
