Die Neuesten Nachrichten:2nd April 2008
Dear folks, I’m starting a new series of entries under the heading “Die Neuesten Nachrichten” that will have links to japanese/korean/chinese articles that MAY interest you, but are either:
1) not deemed important enough by me to spend 2342342 hours to translate (I expect this number to decrease over time)
2) simply too hard to translate
3) I could translate them, but just that I have schoolwork plus essay deadlines hence no time.
This probably doesn’t make sense since if you could read japanese/korean/chinese why on earth would you come here in the first place?! Well just to substantiate, I’ll just be giving ONE or TWO-line summaries of the article, so we’ll sorta know what’s happening.
Now. Why “Die Neuesten Nachrichten”? There’s a poseur reason for this. It means “latest news” in German, but “latest news” in english doesn’t have the oomph, “latest news” in Japanese (saishin jouhou?) wouldn’t be politically/technically correct since I may include Korean news…etc. What I AM sure of though is that you won’t be getting German entertainment news here HAHA (although I do have some German songs to recommend, but that will be another series later.) Okay cut the crap and here gOes~
1) Arashi will host new variety show, winners get to star with Arashi in a CM – from Sanspo news
– It appears that Arashi will be hosting a show on TBS called “Himitsu no Arashi-chan”, wherein teams are expected to come up with new concepts for CMs and the winning “golden” team will get to shoot a CM with Arashi? Sounds like a reality TV show to me. It will apparently start screening on 10th April 2008; looks interesting.
2) LG apologises to Lee Hyori – newsen
– for what? I think I missed out on some history here, but it appears to be something about the start of a baseball match. Anyway I’m just hanging around till Popseoul! translates it haha ^_^
– The single is called “Fakin’ Pop”, and the movie is called “Do you remember that sky?”. Think this plus the uber long title gives enough information! Haha!
4) Gokusen 3 official press launch – mainichi.jp
– So is Akanishi Jin’s non-participation confirmed? Well, no mention of him in this article. Nakama Yukie is accompanied by co-stars in this press-conference; new dorama will star Hey!Say!Jump!’s Takaki Yuya, who looks like this:
What’s worrying me is that he’s born in 1990, we’re already moving away from the 80s! Ack! Age age age.
(there’s something wrong with wordpress and I can’t seem to upload photos now. Will do so again later. )
