[News] Karam of DGNA to star in the live-action adaptation of “Ai Ore!” manga.


The full title of the manga series is “Ai o Utau yori Ore ni Oborero!” Or commonly known as “Ai Ore!“. It’s a gender bender kinda manga meaning the male character disguises as a female and the female character disguises as a male in the story. ;) Here’s the summary as quoted from ANN:

Karam will play Akira Shiraishi, the male “princess” of an all-boys school, in the shōjo romance. The actress Ito Ōno will play Mizuki Sakurazaka, the female “prince” of her all-girls school and the lead guitarist in an all-girl rock band. In the manga’s story, Akira wants to join Mizuki’s band Blaue Rosen when the band’s lead singer moves overseas, but first he has to overcome Mizuki’s suspicious misgivings.” (more…)

[Videos] Seven – “Somebody Else” Music Video

A new treat is in for the Lucky Se7ens out there! Here’s Se7en’s new Japanese music video. It starts off pretty slow with the scene where he’s taking a ride on a bus which is apparently headed out to Se7en City lol. But then we soon get to the chorus part which is pretty catchy along with his smooth dance moves (He’s really a great dancer!). I also find Se7en’s Japanese pronunciation really natural too. No awkwardness there at all. I’m definitely looking forward to hear more Japanese tracks from him! :)

[Bloggings] Thoughts on Gummy’s “Sorry” & “Gomen Ne” MV


Gummy’s Japanese version of her “Sorry” music video was uploaded recently onto Youtube and we finally got to see the full video which was breathtakingly beautiful in every way! From Gummy’s beautiful vocals and clear Japanese pronunciation, to T.O.P’s perfect rap parts and beautiful cinematography of the whole video.

There’s been various interpretations on the storyline, but after hearing the thoughts of other’s, here’s what I think it’s about. T.O.P is searching for his loved one who has been reincarnated into a bird. The other lady in this MV is seen with a helmet. So I guess she’s the owner of the scooter parked outside. She gets out of the coffee shop and sees T.O.P driving off with her scooter so she hurriedly stops a random car and chases after him. After she catches up to him. She sees her scooter safely parked outside some kinda bird shop. She decides to peek in and sees T.O.P hurriedly going through the various bird cages. He gives each bird a good look in hopes of identifying his loved one. But he doesn’t find her. He exits and heads over to the scooter in order to continue his search. The lady runs along and decides to help him in his search.
