Japanese actor Eita and British-Japanese singer Kaela Kimura are officially dating! Their relationship was revealed in the latest issue of Josei Seven, which included their pictures together.

As the magazine reported, Eita was driving home to his apartment in Tokyo on Sept 5 and Kimura was in the passenger seat. And the actor had just returned back home after being in Montreal for work purposes.

His agency had confirmed this serious pairing, and his management had explained that the couple had known each other through a mutual friend and only started going out together in late August. Kimura’s agency came to a common consensus as well.

Will the fangirls mourn over Eita’s attachment? I would say I’m happy, it seems like a good pairing. (:

teppei koike’s older lover!

leave a comment »

Boyish looking Teppei Koike, will be starring in a new TBS drama titled “Ohitorisama” next season, alongside with female lead Alisa Mizuki.

This drama will depict an atypical romantic relationship between the younger Koike and the older Mizuki. Mizuki plays a teacher at a prestigious girls school, who excels in the workplace, but not with the household chores. She then falls in love with her colleague (Koike) and began living together.

Interesting mix of events will happen, highlighting the differences between these two people.

Japanese viewers will be able to catch this drama starting this October!

(Teppei, kakoi…) ^^

Japanese actress Mao Inoue, famous for her role in the hot-selling HYD series, is now teaming up with actor Jonathan Sherr for a movie adaptation of the manga “Darling wa Gaikokujin” (literally meaning, my darling is a foreigner)

In this manga series, the mangaka Saori Oguri depicts her own relationship with her spouse who was an American journalist. Till date, about 2 million copies of its 4 volumes are sold, with the latest one covering content of the birth of their son.

Filming is said to be in progress already, though not much details are released yet. The movie is set to be released in spring next year.

Can’t really imagine Inoue with a gaikokujin together, should be quite an interesting combination (:

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.
