One more Special Episode "Hana Kimi" SP confirmed

Last summer's "Hanazakari no Kimitachi e" drama series is returning for a one-episode special. Starring Maki Horikita, Shun Oguri, and Toma Ikuta, the show was very popular, especially among female viewers. It averaged 17.3% ratings, with the final episode reaching 21.0%.

According to Fuji TV, the special will take place half a year after the series' end. With Osaka Gakuen getting ready for an upcoming Valentine's Day event, Sano (Oguri) and Nakatsu (Ikuta) reflect on the final week of their last summer vacation, which falls into the timeline of the original series between episodes 7 and 8. The special also includes a graduation scene and addresses the relationship between Mizuki (Horikita) and Sano.

Filming begins on Wednesday, but no broadcast date has been specified yet.

Japan Hunk Hiroki Uchi joins "Osen" cast

The next step in the comeback of former NEWS member Hiroki Uchi is his first regular drama series role in almost three years. He will appear in NTV's "Osen," which stars actress Yu Aoi as the "okami" of a long-standing Tokyo restaurant. Uchi will play Yoshio Ezaki, a young and confident chef who comes to work at the restaurant.

In 2005, Uchi was suspended for underage drinking. He was subsequently removed from NEWS and demoted to trainee status within Johnny's Jimusho, but he finally returned to television work with the "Isshun no Kaze ni Nare" drama mini-series that aired in February.

"Osen" premieres on April 22.

HOW TO BECOME JUN'S GIRLFRIEND! tips.. excited.gif

"Properly listen to what Matsumoto san has to say!"
In Matsumoto san's case, it would be best if it's someoen that can stay with him when eating even if it takes a long time. In those instances it's necessary to properly listen to what he says. If you sit there clueless and then stop listening he'll ask things like "So, what do you think about that?" and suddenly kick you to the curb (bitter laugh). Now that I think about it, he once spilled red wine on my white pants. That time I lost (bitter laugh). When you eat with Matsumoto san, I suggest you don't wear any white clothes.

"Be aware of style!"
In any case, Matsumoto san is stylish. He changes his hairstyle often, and he likes clothes so it seems he goes shopping often as well. Since I have no interest in style I'm not really sure, but I believe he definitely matches various types of clothes and wears it well. Even at home, he has a quite a lot of clothes. Since that's the type of person he is, wouldn't it he come to like someone that is definitely just naturally aware of style? There might even be instances where he goes to buy clothes during a date, so it's definitely an advantage if it's someone that likes clothes.

"Become his manager for a day!"
Matsujun really likes when you do something he wants you to do, before he asks. In other words someone that can sense things, someone that can examine a situation and figure things out, that's how you can grab his heart, I think. On the flip side, it's someone that just naturally aware of themself. Specifically, what can you do to please him? That's not only too hard but I can't really explain it...If you become his manager for a day I believe you'll probably be able to learn the points on when to be 'aware' of things (laughs).

"Be able to read and recognize a list of movie stars!"
Since MatsuJun watches movies frequently. Even the day we went to Osaka for the C1000 event, he said he woke up early and went to watch a movie. I believe he likes [movies] quite a lot. He'll definitely enjoy it if you say things like "so and so was a good piece" or "So and so actor's acting is great." That and it seems he's quite into pasta. Since he says, "My napolitan is really good," if you're someone that can't eat napolitan I hope you definitely overcome that (laughs).

Matsumoto Jun personally likes this type of girl!
"Someone that can read the air and act accordingly"
When we're together, I'm interested in how that person goes about things. I believe to be able to read the air a person needs a sense for it, and I think at that point that person's true character comes out. For example if we're all eating together once the plates are empty, it's not about cleaning that up but it's the timing of when to clean it up that I find important. If that sense is the same as me, then I feel like it's someone I can date a long time.

Japanese Hunk Akanishi Jin Interview

Japanese Hunk Akanishi Jin Interview

here's the trans of that interview, sorry but i omitted some parts as it's really long and this were the parts that were more touching? haha douzo:

Now, people do still ask, " Why did you go overseas?". In everyone's eyes, it seems as if I had a very strong ambition to carve another career for myself, hence leaving Japan, studying overseas. But to me, it was just something very normal, wanting to study overseas and returning when it ended, just like that. Of course, the subject of studying overseas was something that I thought of by myself and I want to do it well and not halfheartedly. Hence, there's a big difference between my view and the view of the surrounding people, how did the issue of studying overseas caused so much chaos, I still find it weird and unbelievable.

As an artiste, there are certain structures that the entertainment industry has set; doing this would be better, doing that would not be good. Though I understand all these, but I myself still cannot force myself to like it. For example, dating with a girl, is it better to hide it? But, liking someone, dating her, I feel is something very natural, I simply do not understand the need to hide it. But to change such a structure, I know it's not easy (laughs). Hence, I just want to do things on my own pace, freely, carrying my responsibilities, living my life the way I want.

In Japan, majority of the people place work as their number one priority, family and private time and space are placed second, even if it's their personal time, they'll sacrifice it for work. Of course, everyone has different things that they value, I'm not disagreeing or looking down on that lifestyle, but I hope I don't become like that. Compared to my work, I would prefer to treasure my private space more, my feelings towards these is very strong. I don't live for my work but to have a beautiful life, that is why I work.

About my future aims, I just hope to be able to be a normal father, that's enough (laughs). If my wife would want to work, that's of course fine by me, but protecting and treasuring the important family is the number one priority.

Because, I like dancing and singing, being able to do what I like as my work, I feel it's something incredible. But that's also because there're people who appreciate me. For that, I'm very thankful, therefore, to be able to bring everyone happiness has also become something that I like. Hence from now on, I'll never change, no matter when and what happens, if I can express what I truly feel, that's good enough.

wheeeee, i'm done, hope u guys like the interview as much as I did. night people.
