papa miyavi & mama melody

leave a comment »

Rock celebrity Miyavi and ex Japanese singer Melody, who announced their marital vows not long ago, are now proud parents of a baby girl. The baby was born on Wednesday afternoon, slightly later than the expected birth date.

The couple’s marriage was found out much to fans’ surprise back in March this year, before Miyavi got to announce the news. Albeit a shotgun marriage, let’s hope all’s well for these parents!

Though I am still feeling a little sad that Melody retired from her singing career to pursue a path as a fashion designer.

Ayumi: Rimmel’s first Asian “image character”

leave a comment »

Ayumi Hamasaki has been chosen to represent Rimmel, a London-based cosmetics brand, joining Kate Moss and other female celebrities. She is going to be the first “image character” from Asia, and indeed Japanese must be proud of her!

Ayumi, as Rimmel’s new face, is appointed in the hope of attracting more people from the Asian market to the brand, with the female artiste’s popularity and big-eyed beauty. As a fashion leader in Japan, Ayumi has also been models for many other brands.

The Japanese celebrity is expected to be seen in their advertisement starting next month. To kick start it all, Rimmel will be promoting their new eye product, using Ayumi’s huge mesmerising assets – her eyes!

leave a comment »

Fans who cant get enough of the Korean heartthrob Rain, fret not! He has his own Internet protocol television channel where fans can catch snippets of him day in day out, starting in August! (:

J Tune Entertainment announced this news recently that SK Broad & TV went on with the decision to open this IPTV Channel just for the Rain. This would be the inaugural first time when a local celebrity has his or her own IPTV channel, and the channel name is currently still undecided.

eguchi yosuke: post accident

leave a comment »

Popular Japanese actor Eguchi Yosuke, who had a motorcycle accident last month resulting in an adjustment in the filming schedule of Fuji TV’s upcoming 4th installation of medical drama “Kyumei Byoutou 24-Ji”, is finally back!

The accident was a rather serious one, leaving Eguchi with multiple fractures to his left collarbone and ribs at the time of accident.

As Eguchi returns to the entertainment industry, Fuji TV had broadcasted a clip of the actor’s explanation of what had happened. However, many had also realised that post-accident Eguchi seemed to have suffered from a slightly crooked mouth with rather stiff expression. Many had also speculated that the accident had left the actor helpless at this. ):

Gokusen: The Movie’s opening weekend

leave a comment »

The highly anticipated Gokusen: The Movie opened on Japanese screens last weekend, starting on 11th July. It was reported that more than 402 thousand fans saw the film, and that earned the movie approximately 490 million yen.

The movie casted some of my favourite actors from Gokusen 1 and 2, namely Oguri Shun from the first instalment and Mokomichi Hayami and Koike Teppei from the second. guess this is one of the last times that viewers can catch Yankumi in action, i seriously doubt there’s more coming with 3 instalments done.

However there’s comparison to the “ROOKIES” movie which opened in Japan a few weeks ago, with regards to gross earnings. ROOKIES had earned a whopping 1.2 billion yen in its opening weekend. And perhaps people are questioning whether Gokusen: The Movie can reach its targeted earnings of about 4 billion yen by the end of its run.

Gokusen fans! catch it now =o (if you are reading from Japan)
