family background: both of her parent's families are simple folk with origins from Japan; her mom's family in particular come from the Tohoku region with the women having a long history of being pearl divers

• Born and raised in her father's hometown of Kyoto, Japan and had a rather normal upbringing
• For high school, she attended Kyoto Tachibana High School, a school known for it's marching band, the Kyoto Tachibana Senior High School (S.H.S) Band - affectionately nicknamed "Orange Devils" due to their infamous bright orange uniforms - which has become nationally renowned
• Kei was apart of said marching band, having started out as a flag twirler in her younger year and later going on to play the flute in the band until she graduated.

• Her older brother entered the entertainment business in Japan after he graduated high school and soon became an actor. Her and her siblings desired to follow suit
• During her high school years, she befriended an American exchange student named Alice who would become one of her closest friends

• Although initially just a fan of jpop groups, Alice had introduced Kei to kpop groups such as SHINee, Girls' Generation, Big Bang, T-ara, etc. This was also around the time SHINee began to make their Japanese debut and grew in popularity in Japan. These factors caused Kei to become enamored with kpop and she swept up in the Hallyu wave

• Given their support for her older brother, Kei's parents were completely on board with her decision to become a kpop star although they were a little wary about the distance
• The final push she received was from Alice and after she graduated, she traveled to South Korea to audition
• She was accepted into Pledis and started her training. She trained for 3 years before she would debut in Solar

iii. her name is old-fashioned but she’s always sort of liked her vintage name
iv. she absolutely hates root beer (tastes like medicine to her) but she loves KitKats and has a major sweet tooth
v. she gained her stage name Kei from Alice; once they grew close enough (when they started using each others first names), Alice started nicknaming her “K” or “Kay” because that’s the letter her name started with in the English alphabet. even though it’s a pretty simple nickname, Kei has always been fond of it, seeing as Alice is the one who gave it to her
