Guess who’s back!! Watched Koizora (all the rage in Japan now) on the plane back to sg last night, and it was ooookay lah. However, Miura Haruma in action really reminded me of Singapore-based China-born actor, Qi Yu Wu!! (above right). BUT THEN, Miura Haruma i realised, has many faces. He looks quite different picture to picture, and I remember watching Gokusen 3 on TV last week, and I thought there was a guy who resembled Akanishi Jin a bit. It was only later I connected the Kanji names together and realised it was the same person!

OK i guess this can be considered old news but i was pretty shocked when i saw it!! For one, I didn’t know that she even had a boyfriend (didn’t strike me as the kind) and yada yada and I’m a big fan of her music (i cant believe i can still say that *slaps self*)

Singer Mika Nakashima, 25, and actor Masatoshi Nagase, 41, have broken off their relationship, despite rumors last year that they were soon headed for marriage. Like many other celebrity couples, it seems that their busy careers have caused them to drift apart.

The two met when they played siblings in the drama series “Shiritsu Tantei Hama Mike” in 2002. At the time, Nagase was married to actress Kyoko Koizumi, but he divorced in 2004. Shortly after that, he and Nakashima started dating.

Rumors surfaced in early 2007 that marriage was near, fueled by speculation from members of Nakashima’s family. However, it appears that they gradually began seeing each other less frequently, and they finally broke up earlier this spring.

This piece of news was published on May 10th 2008, so I guess its like one month old. I went to dig deeper after that and found more info. After the cut! Continue reading ‘Mika Nakashima and Masatoshi Nagase split’

the recently released PV for kuu and fergie’s collab! The song is called That ain’t cool and will be released on June 11th 2008.

I think its pretty good, although it is rather strange how Fergie sings more although it features her. But i think its a really cool collab :> Am lovin Kuu’s look as well.  I have a few gripes on how Kuu hardly sings though, and she spoke english instead of japanese. I think if she sang/rapped in proper Japanese it would have been better and more impressive. The Jap sounded really awkward.

Any thoughts?

below the cut is their interview Continue reading ‘Koda Kumi feat. Fergie: New single That Ain’t Cool’

Kimutaku’s drama has finally placed number one on the ratings chart, taking over Gokusen 3’s spot!


According to the latest ratings on the 24th of May, Gokusen 3 had a viewership of 21.1%, losing to Change’s 23.0%!! Honestly, I dont know why I feel so gleeful.

This was the first time Kimura Takuya had trumphed Nakama Yukie and the media predicts an intense battle ahead.

“Change” had a rough start and although its average rating was over 23%, it still lost by a bit to “Gokusen 3″. But things seems to have changed as the rating of only 21.1% for “Gokusen 3″ was its lowest thus far. Everyone is concerned about whether “Change” will be able to break the 30% barrier.

there was an article posted on MFGB here. Change’s first episode scored 23.8%, as opposed to Gokusen’s 26.4%. but oh well. I hope change rates very high(even though i haven’t watched it!) simply because kimutaku is in it. Yes, I am very biased like that.

Separately, I also reccomend watching Iljimae, Lee junki’s  new drama. The reviews for it were pretty good and even though i havent watched it I will be (prolly later) There is an unbiased article on it here, and if you ask me, it looks pretty impressive! plus, I totally love Lee Junki(hahahhaha) from the king and the clown, which is awesome too ^_^

Hello everyone!!! I’m REALLY sorry I havent been updating for so long, I got hooked on Nana for two days and cleaned off the whole series, then i ran around doing lots of random things… so please excuse my absence, lol. I promise to update a lot lot more!!! (o^_^o)

I saw this on bigbangkorean, and thought it was too cute, so decided to share it. 😀

If you don’t already know, Big Bang’s Tae Yang released his first solo mini-album entitled Tae Yang : 2008 1st Mini Album – HOT on May 23, 2008. He did a couple of collabs (granny posted on them before) and with the success of his mini-album, intends to focus more as “Tae yang” rather than “Big bang’s Tae Yang”.

Anyway guess who was spotted with Taeyangs new album!! :D:D

Gummy is temporarily stopping activities because of Laryngitis that was due to non-stop promotions since the release of her 4th album in March.

According to YG Entertainment, Gummy’s busy schedule has caused a lot of strain on her larynx and physical well-being, which in turn have also taken their toll on her performances. It may be remembered that when Gummy released her 1st album, she also had a problem with her vocal cord.

As soon as Gummy regains her health, she will be back again to do activities.

Hope she gets better!! I like Gummy pretty much (though i cant say the same for the ft. TOP single) i think its really cute how she and Big Bang boys are pretty good friends (i think/from observation) \(o^_^o)/I dont really listen to any music nowadays since my comp is screwed up, but i heard shes pretty talented, so gummy all the way!!!! \(^_^)/ \(^_^)/ \(^_^)/. and the name Gummy is like cool. In a weird way…

On the OTHER hand…. Continue reading ‘Gummy to take a break!!’

Just lots of random bits and Juicy News. copying wholesale!!

1. Oguri Shun rumoured to be seeing someone else

(online gossip source: idolgravure/picture source: mainichi)

It appears that although Shun and Yamada Yu publicly announced their relationship, he has been spotted introducing another girl to his friend’s family.

taken from Uwasako:It seems despite all the hoopla surrounding what appeared to be a happy couple, Yamada Yu may not be “the one.” Word has it Shun’s really in love with some other girl. He took said girl with him on a trip to close friend Kamiji Yusuke’s family home and introduced her as his girlfriend.

A neighbor who saw them said, “the girl he brought certainly wasn’t Yamda Yu.” Kamiji’s home is in Uraga, which takes some time to get to from Tokyo so he wouldn’t bring along just any girl.
Yep, the farther you take someone the more you love them.

And if that weren’t enough, there’s a second rumor about Shun: he’s gotten back together with Yaguchi Mari, whom you may remember left Morning Musume when she got Friday’d with him back in ’05.
