Yukie Nakama gives up the tracksuit for good

Actress Yukie Nakama (29) attended an even this week for "Gokusen: THE MOVIE," which is currently showing in theaters (in Japan). It will be the last time she wore the trademark red-with-stripe tracksuit that her character, Yumiki Yamaguchi, is famous for.

I don't really like the tracksuit or the pony-tails she wears in the drama, haha, it doesn't do her justice at all, but I guess that's the point.

The PR event thats she went to in Shiodome, titled "GO! SHIODOME Jamboree Wasshoi! 2009," attracted about 1,600 people. Aqua Timez was also there. They performed a rendition of Gokusens' movie theme song "Plumeria - Hana Uta" (flower song..i think) with Nakama. Vocalist Futoshi (29) was excited when he saw her, he said, "It's the first time I've seen Kumiko in the flesh."

The plot of Gokusen: THE MOVIE follows basically the same plot as the TV series, Gokusen 1, 2 and 3. There's also a return of many of the characters from previous seasons like Oguri Shun, Kamenashi Kazuya, Takaki Yuya, Haruma Muira, Waki Tomohiro(Kuma) and many others. I was sad to see Matsumoto Jun didn't return though.

Here is the movie trailer:

According to box office numbers, the movie seems to be doing well. About 2.33 million people have gone to see it and its taking in about 2.7 billion yen. Wow, thats a a lot. It seems to be doing better than just well. I'm happy to see that they're having this much success for the ending show.

TVQX - Are You A Good Girl?

Wednesday, August 12, 2009

TVXQ also known as Tohoshinki (Japan) and DBSK (Korea) has released a new MV for their song "Are you a good girl?" from their Mirotic album.

"Are you a good girl?" has been out for a while now, but they have now just released the MV despite all the issues they're dealing with now with SM Entertainment. The video was probably released to lessen the tension around them right now.

The MV looks very much like a fanmade video, but it isn't. It contains montages and various clip and compilations of their concert performances.

I love this song. It's so addicting. I wish though that they would've made a more awesome MV for it and not just concert clips, but it's to promote the Mirotic Concert DVD so I guess it works.

Gdragon plagiarism?!?

Tuesday, August 11, 2009

Big Bang GDragon’s title song ‘Heartbreaker’ is being accused of plagiarizing Flo Riders right around. GDragon released the preview to his solo album title song ‘Heartbreaker’ on his me2day at about 5pm on 11th August.

The reason he released the previews were to let fans know the kind of music to be included in his first solo album. The album will be released on the 18th of August. The reveal of ‘Heartbreaker’ has caused a debate over if it plagiarizes Flo Rida’s ‘Right Round’or not.

Netizens say, “Just 30 seconds revealed but it sounds exactly the same”, “Even though there are similarities, the melody is different” and it continues on like that.YG Entertainment has put out a statment saying, “Now we only revealed just 30 seconds to the song, it is ridiculous to call it plagiarism. ‘Heartbreaker’ did not plagiarise other’s music. Please look forward to the full song.”

There are similarities but I don't know if I would call it plagiarism, especially before hearing the full song. Listen to both, what do you think?

SNSD holds special birthday Party for girl with cancer

SNSD helped to fulfill the wished of a girl with cancer by holding a special birthday party fo her. How sweet~ This special event was a part of SNSD's mini-album promotion for "Genie" and their 2nd time fulfilling a wish as genies.

The recipient of the 2nd wish went to Choi Hye Won, a young girl who has been battling brain cancer for the past 7 years. Her mom and dad helped organize the party for her and submitted the application for the wish to be granted.

On the 27th of July, SNSD members, Yuri, Seo Hyun, Sunny, and Hyo Yeon helped grant the wish. Hye Won, the birthday girl, loved the sea, so they arranged for her to arrive in helicopter with the 2 of the girls before landing on a ship to meet the others. The 4 SNSD girls gave her gifts like books and other things, hoping this special experience will help her recover faster or at least bring up her spirits a little bit.

Hye Won said, "It has been my dream to visit the sea with my family. I am very happy and blissful that my SNSD unnies (sisters) have granted me my wish."

Here is a video from the "Tell Me Your Wish Event"

Even though SNSD seemed to only be doing this for promotion reasons, it was very nice of them to choose this girl who deserves to have her wish come true. I think it was very sweet of them and they even planned a great and memorable day for her. Fighting Hye Won! I hope you recover soon.

Big Bang's Daesung Injured in Car Accident!

Earlier, Daesung was reported to have been in a car accident. Now it appears the condition isn't very good. He's not in any serious danger, but he wont be able to work for a while.

According to YG Entertainment, "Big Bang's Daesung has suffered a nose fracture and this was the same part he injured when he was little. There's also some alignment problem with Daesung's spinal cord although that will clear up by itself in about 4 weeks time. Other than that, Daesung also suffered superficial injuries on his face and arms. His arm was reported to be injured earlier on, was a non-issue after check-up."

YG also explained what happened, "Daesung was on his way back home from the site of the filming location of Family Outing at around 4. While cruising along the highway near Pyeongtaek, Gyeonggi province, there was a lot of water accumulated on the road because of heavy rain, which caused the vehicle to skid and crash onto the divider. Daesung was sitting at the side, behind his coordinator who was in front."

Daesung's manager also suffered superficial injusried on his hand and a leg injury which will receive further treatment. The coordinator received more serious injuries such as a severe bleeding on the leg, but will be fine after operation that takes place tonight. Daesung and manager will return to Seoul for further treatment.

Daesung, because of injuries will not be able to take part in the "Shouting" musical along with Big Bang member Seung Ri, which starts tomorrow.

It's really tragic to hear this happened, but luckily none of the injuries were life-threatening. We wish Daesung, his manager and coordinator a speedy recovery and hope all goes well.

Monday, August 10, 2009

When FT Island released their new album "Cross & Change," they placed a special ticket called the "Dream Ticket" which had the signatures of all the 5 members of the group. With this ticket, the lucky fan who bought the album would get to go on a date with FT Island for one day.

Two very lucky fangirls were about to share their one special day with FT Island as the boys carried out their daily activities. Both of the girls(age 17) were given bouquets and told to prepare what they wanted to say to the boys before their meeting.

The FT Island boys said due to their busy schedule, "It was a pity that we couldn't do many things together because of our schedule. It was a chance to interact with our fans closely." The boys wanted to treat the girls to a good meal, but unfortunately all they could give at the time was a simple packed meal. Im sure the girls were happy regardless because they were way to excited and having the time of their lives by just being in the boys presense.

This is just the first set of Dream Ticket winners. Others are still out there and a 2nd date will happen soon. Best of luck to those who get to spend the day with the FT Island boys and have fun! I'm sure you will.

Metro Radio Arena - Diamond Megastars

Metro Radio Arena's Diamond Megastar concert featuring Andy Lau, Richie Jen and Andy Hui was held at Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre August 8th. These 3 superstars attracted countless fans who came to watch such a concert which is hard to come by.

Richie sang his Cantonese song "Pen You, Ni Bian Le Mei You" and latest singles "Fu Ge Di Yi Ju."andy then sang "Bi Yi Shuang Fei," followed by "Heal the World."

Andy also did a solo "I Wish" before the three brothers came together on stage again to sing "Di Zi Qu Tou Huan," and many other classics.

Watch Andy's "I Wish"

Most of the audience were Andy's fans so they all rushed to the stage when he appeared, which caused a small commotion. The concert was like an Andy fan club instead of concert for all three. Andy even did his famous Latin dance which the crowd absolutely loved.

At the end of the concert, the 3 superstars played with water guns and sprayed each other while singing. How fun! Andy even jokingly said: "Even my underwear is drenched, I didn't bring any extra." Andy also made a promise with Richie to play water guns again in Richie's upcoming concert. Also, since this coming Wednesday, August 12th will be Andy Hui's birthday, his fans bought him a cake to celebrate with him. How sweet =) however the "birthday boy" was too drenched to enjoy cake at the time.

Johnnie To claimed that the heavenly king superstars are troublesome as they need several assistants around them, but at least they know how to have fun.

Sakai Noriko's case gets sadder

The Noriko Sakai case continues. Within the past 24 hours several new details have come to light,a DNA match linking Sakai to the drugs and the revelation that Sakai and her husband, Yuichi Takaso, had been living separately…

Takaso revealed during questioning that he and Sakai were living separately. Sakai and her son had an apartment in Minami-Aoyama, where police uncovered a small amount of stimulants and a pipe. Takaso told them that the pipe was not his, and acknowledged that Sakai was also using drugs. Police confirmed that by testing some DNA found on the pipe, which matched with Sakai. She will now surely be charged with both possession and use of illegal stimulants.

The unusual relationship between Sakai and Takaso has gathered attention as well. There are some indications that the friend who was taking care of the son may actually be Takaso’s mistress. It is said that Sakai was aware of this, as she and the woman had long been friends. They continued their friendship after Takaso’s affair, and the son had even developed an attachment to the woman, making her a natural choice for Sakai to leave the son with.

Sakai’s activities before her disappearance have also been made public. On Monday after Takaso’s arrest, she quickly visited her home to retrieve some luggage. She withdrew several hundred thousand yen from an ATM and purchased a large number of clothes, underwear, and toiletries, indicating that she planned for a long trip. It is not clear whether her shopping was before or after leaving her son in the care of the friend. But Sakai seemed to have left her home in a panic, as police stated that the drugs and paraphernalia in her home were left in an easily discoverable location.

As the case continues, other details about the actress are coming out. It appears that she recently was showing up to work late, and had an unusual energy. Some who worked with her mentioned that she seemed to have lost weight. It was also mentioned that during a commercial shoot, a tattoo was discovered on Sakai’s left ankle, which had to be edited out of the footage. It is not known when she got the tattoo, though the media are highlighting it as further damage to her once “pure” image.

Meanwhile, her current commercials are of course being withdrawn. A 2-disc best album that was scheduled for September 16 has been shelved as well. Ironically, Sakai was also cast as the star of a promotional movie for the recently revived lay judge system in Japan. Naturally, the movie and its accompanying posters have been pulled back.
Source: Japantoday, channelnewsasia

This is a really sad case we wish for the best for Noriko and her family. I can't help but think maybe all this happened due to the pressure of having to maintain a "pure" image.
Whats your opinion on Sakai Norikos case?
