Tanaka Kei and Yoshida Kotaro are considered "Breakthrough Actors"? Aren't they already established?

This ranking is not only for new actors. It's for people who have seen a surge or re-surge in their popularity/fame etc. Tanaka has been getting quite a lot of attention and popularity especially after "Ossans Love" while Yoshida's character in the same drama also made him much talked-about.
