A popular and beautiful Japanese model, Kayo Satoh (also known as Kayo Police), has confessed on TV that she is in fact a man.
In addition to working as a fashion model and occasional cosplayer (seen above coplaying Bayonetta with the developers), 22-year-old Kayo is the assistant presenter on a Nico videogame show, and is also known as a talented Street Fighter IV player.
He reports moving away from his hometown to prevent anyone from recognising him, and then living as a woman under a new name. He was spotted by a modelling agency and offered work – apparently no one suspected. Internet rumours about his true gender eventually prompted him to “come out.”
Kayo claims he has had no plastic surgery – aside from natural prettiness, it seems much of “her” success is down to very skilful application of makeup:
Time will tell whether his modelling career will survive the revelation – considering the current “otoko no ko” boom is in full swing, he can probably expect his popularity amongst male fans to harden in more ways than one…
“To everyone who received my message.
Thank you everyone for the comments.
I have received so much courage from them.
As I said on the show I was born a boy.
I feel really good about being able to tell everyone about my past.
I appreciate you guys giving me this opportunity.
I will continue to work as Kayo Sato and keep moving forward.
I’m really happy that many people have accepted me and my new start.
Thank you all very much.”
