Tasaki Takahiro was raised up in Nagasaki Prefecture. He became a big fan of EXILE when he and his friends attended EXILE's 2005 concert.

The addition of Tasaki to the group was considered EXILE's second era. After he joined, he was given the stage name of "TAKAHIRO" and the group went on to release 3 singles and an album to allow fans, new and old, to adapt to the "new" EXILE.
