|Born||November 26, 1980|

Satoshi Ohno (大野 智 Ōno Satoshi, born November 26, 1980) is a Japanese idol, singer, actor, radio host, dancer and choreographer. He is the lead vocalist and leader of the boy band Arashi, hence his nickname Leader (リーダー Rīdā).
Ohno began his career in the entertainment industry when he joined the Japanese talent agency Johnny & Associates in 1994 at the age of 13, he started an acting career in 1997 when he was cast to be part of the stage play Kyo to Kyo. In 2008, Ohno became the first and the only artist from Johnny's to hold his own art exhibition, titled "Freestyle", and also received his first starring role in a Japanese television drama, Maō, for which he earned a handful of Best Actor awards. Since then, he has continued to star in numerous dramas and movies, receiving a number of awards and nominations for his roles. For his work as an artist, a singer, and an actor in Kaibutsu-kun the Movie, Ohno became one of the recipients of GQ Japan's Men of the Year Award in 2011.
Ohno was born in Mitaka, Tokyo as the youngest child of his family, he has one older sister. During middle school, his mother sent in his application to Johnny & Associates without his knowledge. An invitation to audition was sent back to Ohno, and he subsequently became a trainee in October 1994. In order to focus on the stage play Kyo to Kyo, which ran from 1997 to 1998 during his trainee days, he withdrew from high school and moved to Kyoto.
Before his music debut with Arashi, Ohno wanted to resign from Johnny & Associates. However, then-president Johnny Kitagawa asked him to help out with a song recording and to pack up for a trip to Hawaii, which turned out to be the place where the press conference announcing the formation of Arashi was held. With Ohno at the age of 18 at the time, Arashi was officially formed on September 15, 1999 and made their CD debut on November 3, 1999. Since much of his trainee days were spent in Kyoto, he was the least known member during Arashi's early days.
Ohno is the lead vocalist of Arashi. Although his music career is primarily with Arashi, he had a solo concert called 3104 (which can be read as his name Satoshi in Japanese) in 2006 and in 2009, became the first and only member in Arashi to release a solo single, it was a soundtrack for his drama Uta no Onii-san titled "Kumorinochi, Kaisei" (曇りのち、快晴) by Yano Kenta starring Satoshi Ohno. Ohno also provided the vocals to the insert song "Yukai Tsukai Kaibutsu-kun" (ユカイツーカイ怪物くん), which was released as a single on July 7, 2010 for the drama Kaibutsu-kun and sold around 59,000 copies on the first day.
Ohno began his work as a choreographer in 2004 for his solo "Top Secret" during Arashi's 2004 Iza, Now Tour and in 2006, began to work as a choreographer for the group. Since then, he has choreographed numerous solo and group dances. While Ohno mainly contributes to performances during Arashi's concerts, he choreographed the dance for Arashi's "Zero-G" and "Tsunagu" music videos and the interlude for their "Kokoro no Sora" music video. Ohno also did part of the choreography for the chorus of "GUTS!"  and the choreography for "Bittersweet".
In 1997, Ohno was a cast member of Kyo to Kyo with Musical Academy (MA) leader Shingo Machida and continued to act in other stage productions such as Koichi Dōmoto's Mask and Shōnentai's Playzone after Kyo to Kyo was over. Since then, he has done a number of stage plays such as True West with Masahiro Matsuoka and West Side Story with bandmates Sho Sakurai and Jun Matsumoto.
