"I honestly feel that my efforts have paid off. Once again, I would like to thank everyone involved and those who have supported me," the new Mister Japan wrote in a statement on social media.

"From now on, I would like to continue to work hard every day so that I can grow into an attractive human being as an actor," he added.
