leave a comment »

(ent.sina.com)

The late famous pretty TV broadcaster Ako Kawada‘s death has been pretty hot news since like 2 weeks ago. Anyway, Sina reported about an interview with Kawada’s good friend Matt Taylor. Apparently Taylor revealed that Kawada’s last lover was her ex-boyfriend who happened to be the boss of her managing company – Mr. X.

During the interview, Taylor appeared to be pretty worked up, emphasising that justice ought to be sought. He also mentioned that he knew about the true reason behind the broadcaster’s suicide from the two letters that Kawada had sent to him. The content was unknown, but there are speculations that it may involve someone from the entertainment circle.

cecilia cheung lookalike

Was surfing the Net randomly till I came across this unknown guy’s photo, and boy does he look alike to Cecilia Cheung… but then again, on second thought the unknown guy looks a bit like an ex member of Taiwanese boyband Energy – Toro… or even Wallace Huo (霍建华) from Taiwan! wow. powerpacked. one face resembling so many people!

Olympics theme song for Japan

with 2 comments

(Tokyograph.com)

Reports released news that J-rock group Remioromen‘s coming single, Motto Tooku E もっと遠くへ will be used by Fuji TV as the official theme song of their Olympics Games coverage. The single will be coming out end of next month.

The single’s B-side is “Orchestra,” which is also tied in to the Olympics. It will be used as a support song by the Japanese branch of Coca-Cola, which is one of the Olympics’ sponsors this year.

Saw how this group rose in fame from their song features in dorama “One Litre of Tears” and I do like their style of laid back pop. Hopefully they’ll be able to catch the Olympics wave and set their fans and listeners on fiery passion!

And this song surely depicts Japan’s desire and dream to go further in the world stage, and shine in the coming Olympics at Beijing…

Horikita Maki plays 10 characters in commercial

with one comment

(Horikita MakiMainichi Japan)

Recently famous female actress Horikita Maki attended a press conference at Tokyo for the new TV commercial for DoCoMo’s mobile phones, on Thursday. In all, she changed into 10 different outfits to complement the 10 models of DoCoMo’s mobiles, playing ten different characters to emphasise the uniqueness of the phone models.

Interesting marketing, and at the same time reveals Horikita’s ability to assume different characters. something which I think artistes in this over-booming entertainment industry are increasingly lacking.

Guess Horikita is slowly moving out of her image of a high school girl, and soon the world will be seeing an evolved and matured young woman in Horikita. Looking forward to seeing her in more breakthrough roles in future doramas. (:
