TOKYO, Feb 13 (News On Japan) - Tsuyoshi Domoto of the popular duo KinKi Kids made an appearance on their regular radio program "KinKi Kids Donnan Mon Ya!", where he spoke about the current state of his hearing. "The doctors have told me it won't return," said Domoto, referring to the sudden hearing loss he experienced in 2017.
"It's really a gradual process. I don't expect it to come back all at once, and the doctors have indeed said it won't come back because it's a sequelae," he explained.

Despite the prognosis, Domoto expressed his determination to improve his condition, "When I think about wanting to meet everyone on stage, I know I need to work towards healing my ears, and I can't neglect maintenance. I've tried changing hospitals, consulting different doctors, and even altering my diet—various things," he shared about his ongoing efforts to treat his condition.
Currently, Domoto experiences fluctuating levels of hearing. "There are days when I think 'my hearing might be good today,' but then there are times when it becomes harder to hear due to atmospheric pressure or when I'm working outside in the cold for long periods," he revealed. He continued, "This is something that I handle day by day. There are good days and bad days. But I'm not rushing; I'm trying to make even a millimeter of improvement, aiming to get better than I am now."
