KAZOKU GAME: otsukare, Sho-kun!

First a confession. I love Arashi to bits but I can never claim I have watched all of their solo dramas, not even Jun’s, who is my ichiban. And the only other drama I fully watched of Sho’s is NAZOTOKI WA DINNER NO ATO DI. It takes more than liking an actor to keep on…

LAST CINDERELLA’s fairy tale ending?

(Spoilers ahead) I just invested three months watching a vexing drama and I can never get that time back. I won’t even bother to review the last episode. But this man is the reason why I watched till the end. Alas, that bittersweet smile could not change the ending, nor Sakura’s heart. Opinions may vary…

KAZOKU GAME: so how do you cope with stress?

Dear Sho-kun, I’d have you know that I stopped downloading shows and dramas a long time ago and preferred streaming instead because it’s kinder on my hard drive but for you, I will gladly DL. What are external drives for? So yeah, I finally managed to catch up with KAZOKU GAME ahead of this week’s…

LAST CINDERELLA: between youth & maturity

(Spoilers ahead) Reaching episode 10 of LAST CINDERELLA, I have to say that the reason why I got this far with this drama without giving up on it halfway (or once Miura’s hair became uglier and uglier) is because of Fujiki Naohito. And maybe, a small part of it is my curiosity on who Sakura…

get wild! (from ARASHI NI SHIYAGARE 2013.06.15)

It was covered by comedian Himura (of Bananaman, thanks @yuui1010 for clearing this up, not familiar with Japanese comedians even if lotsa of them guest on Arashi shows lol)  who was the guest and the title is…

JE politics: Team I or Team J?

The original title of this post was: “Team S or Team A?” If you’re a JE fan or watcher, it won’t take long to guess what S and A stand for, or even the meaning behind Team I or Team J. But I didn’t want this to be a SMAP vs Arashi post, because while…

Jerry Yan has a new drama… and shorter hair

First, a quiz. How many people does it take to assist a star? And how many to usher him inside a building? Asian stars sure are a pampered lot. I wonder then how many people it took to cut Jerry Yan’s hair then? Oh and hey, shorter hair fits him, makes him look younger. The…
