Meteor Garden as a drama still makes us swoon over the leads, sing along to foreign songs and make us want to go places.
Thank you, Chengdu, for your gifts to the world.
Meteor Garden occupies a special place in my fan life even if I have moved on to other things.
The joys of being a Jpop fan, or an Arashi fan in particular, far outweighs the pains. But to stay engaged, interested and excited, there are some do’s and don’ts.
We can never underestimate celebrity power in charity, whether it is through money or goods donation or personal presence.
I wish nothing but happiness and success for someone who has so unselfishly shared his talent and goodwill with his fans, rocked on through life’s upheavals and bravely walked on the road of fame littered with both thorns and flower petals.
Here’s to celebrate the 35th year of my favourite brat, Arashi’s good-looking guy, Clint Eastwood’s friend, Hollywood “stuhr,” 39th Japan Academy’s best actor (2016) and host of the winning shirogumi (white team) at the 68th Kouhaku Uta Gassen.
Thank you for raising such talented sons, sharing them with the public and guiding them through the treacherous path of their chosen career
