kissmegreen: (junno shut your mouth)
One day, I fell in love with Junno. It was sudden - I was new to fandom and Kame was basically all I was interested in (Kame and Ueda's music) - but then, one day I took my eyes off Kame, and they landed on Junno and this interview. It's a simple interview, and perhaps that's why I after all these years, I still remember what Junno said: - I can relate;

"My ideal love would be one without sadness. In my opinion, number one happiness is to be ordinarily together".

Somehow, from this one line I'd always pictured Junno to be someone who would give-up the world and its riches just so he can go and live a quiet and peaceful life somewhere - in a one bedroom apartment, a hut... anywhere, as long as he's happy.

This is probably why it's not a total surprise that he wants to stop being an idol and or even stay away from the spotlight ~ as long as he can he happy (alone or with company).

And so, as Junno officially leaves us, I feel like I should repost that interview; It's a simple interview, but I love the simplicity and the slice and the life feeling to it~ and on a side note, this interview was used as the backdrop for many of my JunDa slice of life fanfics XD

“I feel that if you overcome distress, you’ll be able to grow.”

- Not wanting to be sad )

At the time I read this, I remember how I wondered if after 2plus years, if he would still think the same way.

Well, I guess I finally got my answer. I'll truly miss this simple, ordinary, happy man.

[ profile] itz_menos Darling posted Nakamaru's 10,000 words Myojo 2016.03 interview ~ check tagumarulove! and be sure to leave your appreciation~ believe me, it's an awesome read!

It's such a powerful interview. So many things we can relate to and so many things he tried to convey to make us understand the pressure and the pain and the anxiety and worries, and yet that bond... complicated feelings... complicated KAT-TUN... I think he did a great job!

KAT-TUN is family
So, if KAT-TUN is a family, what is your role in it?
---- Hmm, considering my personality I wanted to be the mother but (laughs) *lol hugs him*

'[...]when they leave the group... it's like there's an impact that kills something inside us. It's comparable to the pain of our bodies being torn apart'. )

KAT-TUN is such a strange existence... but it's this reality to them that I like.

Good people in the world pokes [ profile] itz_menos posted Junno's 10,000 words Myojo 2016.02 interview ~ check tagumarulove!

From reading, I don't think there's anything new per se... more like hearing it from the horse's mouth. But I'll point out that when people ask me: why KAT-TUN? I always answer with; apart from them being cute, they're real.

And so Junno says;

[...] it'd be weirder if we don't fight. We have not lived with masks on.

So for better or worse, real bond or not, I always found it perfect because for me, they didn't 'hide' from us.

Anyway, this interview;

It's a little like; perhaps I couldn't get their full agreement on this. I've tried to the best of my ability to get this agreement, but in reality it's not that easy... )

So in the end, my feelings are exactly like his family's;

[,,,]everyone in my family, perhaps more than supporting this, they accepted my decision.

twitterbirdicon (1)teodanica was great enough to translate Ueda's 1000 character interview (2016.04 Myojo).

Parts 1 . 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10

And what can I say?

Ueda's reaction to Junno's decision to quit is very relatable;

"Anger is definite. That said [...] I can't work up any hate towards him. There are a lot of complex feelings".


"[...] as a KAT-TUN member, I can't say something like, "I'll support you"... however, we are still friends. There will still be other feelings".

So if people want to be angry or sad or supportive or leave fandom or whatever, Hyphens shouldn't be calling other Hyphens stupid or unreasonable and eat each other - because it's only natural for people to have a bunch of complicated feelings.

But anyway, my JunDa heart.... I'm glad knowing this JunDa pairing wasn't just all in my head... and that they're not just friends, but are genuinely close friends!



Indeed, when together~ sakura blooms

Kame always give us reasons to be proud of him. I'm so glad he got his opportunity to be recognised at the film festival. He's so hardworking, and he deserves every moment of fame and recognition that he gets <3

By now the world must know just how much I love Kyoukasho Ni Nosetai...

And you want to know why?

It's because the Hosts and Guests are my heroes! They get to do things to/with Tatchan that we can only dream of doing... they've got pervy intentions like us fans.

So they were do some light abs exercise, when this man got up from his seat on the the other side to the room, walked over to Tatchan and raised his shirt for the world to see his perfect abs... then everyone got drooling! (screencaps above and below cut).

*Anyway a rough trans of this part of the clip - mind you, my Japanese is far from perfect & correct me if I'm wrong, but*......

So I'm watching some old news about Ueda's 'Romeo and Juliet' stage play held in 2009, when I came across this March 5, 2009 clip on Ohayo Asahi Desu.

The commentators had me giggling and nodding:

Man 1: Ueda has such a beautiful face
Lady: Yes
Man 2: He doesn't have any faults
Lady: His nose is beautifully shaped (touching her nose)
Man 2: Unlike mine (touching his nose regretfully)
Everyone: (laughs)
Man1: Ueda is born to be in musicals
Everyone: Sou... sou... (agrees)
Lady : He's beautiful...


Yeah! we AGREE!
Oh I love it when they flail over KAT-TUN and it's members like this *-*

I woke up from a nap with Kame's 1582 playing in my head: I would like to think I was dreaming of him  - too back I can't remember...
... 1582 is one of my favourite songs EVER... based on the music, the colourful/historical performances and the soulful/passionate singing in Kame's voice... but, I've never looked up the historically motivated lyrics until now....

Even this heart littered with wounds Is healed by watching you... )

As expected and feared by NEWS fans, Yamapi and Ryo both withdrew from NEWS today leaving Shige, Kei, Massu and Tegoshi to carry on as a 4 member group.

Jun makes several different comments about women’s hair and nails while he looks at the camera, where a girl is supposedly sitting. Jun was asked to say up to 20 different comments, and different comments will be aired depending on the region it’s shown in.

But with comments like, “my heart starts beating faster when I look at you”, Jun found it hard to say his lines with a straight face.

“I was embarrassed throughout filming, sometimes I’d just start laughing, but it was fun,” he said.

All 20 comments are below: (some of which are very..... Jun) giggle

#02 (Hair salon): “Did you change your hairstyle?…Nice try. Sorry, sorry.” )

I see Domyouji in some of these *grins*
kissmegreen: (junno)

I particularly like this interview - Taguchi's outlook on 'love' and 'relationship'.... I think we really do see eye to eye on this one.... and I wonder if after 2+yrs, if he still feels the same way...

Many Hobbies: 2009.02.11: Hanamaru Cafe -  Ueda Tatsuya:

Ueda: Taguchi has many hobbies. He has a lot of hobbies, but he's not great at any of them (laughs)
Host: Maji !
Ueda: He loves computer games a lot and we often play them together
Host: Apparently he gets really into them
Ueda: He does! His personality changes.  The times we hate him most are when he's playing games! (Laughs)
hehehehe maybe Tat-chan is just jealous and is more in need of Junno's attention than he's willing to say...
I'm just saying,

     - JunDa Moments!

kissmegreen: (junno)

Host: You have a great smile, Taguchi. Did you practice smiling in front of the mirror?
Taguchi: No. I don't know why, but it seems to be a joke point. (laughs)
Host: You've never laughed when you're scolded?
Taguchi: That's never happened. But strange things make my laugh, and I laugh at odd times.

LOL@ Junno last response !

kissmegreen: (baseball kame)
This mini manga is somewhat related to/or is similar to this 'Only Star' (2011.03) interview.....  Each time Kame manages to charm someone new {and in this case,  a reporter covering the Dramatic Game 1184 *-*}... my heart just surrenders ... they called this effect, his "Idol Power"! But I think he does it just by being his dorky honest and passionate self ^________^

.... Not to mention how cute Kame's manga drawing is... and his hair style couldn't be more typical but very accurate {laughs in adoration}... I really do think this manga adequately represents him and his many emotions and expressions he shows whenever baseball is concerned...

manga is read from right to left (<-----------------------o )

Host: What were NewS doing 15 years ago?

Ryo: I played for a local soccer team.

Shige: I remember playing soccer.

Thanks to [ profile] 66lily_lo66 who informed me that this was during the [CDTV Special] 2008.09.24 NEWS talk & medley Performance... 
I just watched the video and all the more reason why I'm speechless, and totally amused.... all I can do is LAUGH OUT LOUD!!!! This really made my evening :)))

Thank You. Yamapi!
