Ricoh Imaging appointed global spokesperson

He, twinkle and smile, can not stop the charm;
He is both handsome and expressive.
He, the ability of character shaping is extraordinary, strength and flow coexist.
In the future, Ricoh image will join hands with this stylish man and invite you to grow with you. September 30, 10:19 am, waiting for you to witness the trump card -- who is he?

It's probably "Ken" from Yamaha's Vocaloid 5 software package...

You know, since Ricoh had the Hatsune Miku special edition Theta a few years ago...

An AI driven animation, I bet. Showcasing Ricoh's other research, as well as selling K-new.

Or it could be Rice High. Or Kai W.

10:19 is an oddly specific time.
Does it have a cryptic meaning? Speculate away!

I think they are talking about the K-new itself.
He, with a smile, can't
resist the charm; he, with
his handsome face and the expressive power of a blockbuster; he, with his extraordinary ability to shape characters, his strength and flow.
In the future, The Light Image will join hands with this ace-type man, invite you to #GRowING with you, there is a type out of the street. September 30, 10:19 a.m., wait for you to witness the birth of ace - who is he?
wait for you to witness the birth of ace - who is he?
Was not the K-1 called the "King" at some point?

So the K-new is revealed on September 30th.

10:19?? I don't know. Sunrise on the 30th at some place on the globe??

Saw this news in the taiwanese facebook Pentax Foto Club, people speculated that this guy is a Chinese star and they're triggered by it since Ricoh can spend all those marketing money on better things like designing camera/lens. I believe this is only Ricoh China doing their thing because I haven't seen Pentax Japan/USA tweeted anything about it. If Ricoh headquater is hiring a Chinese as their "global advocate", then they've lost their mind in my opinion. I'll see.

September equinox was less than a week ago. I don't think there's a single place on Earth where Sun rises at that time.
