w-inds.’ Truth is the last

We posted before about w-inds.‘ new double A-side single, “New World” and “Truth~saigo no shinjitsu“. Well here the PV for “Truth“.

It’s a pretty good song, mellow, and the PV itself is interesting. It’s good to see Ryuichi back and not looking so fashionably challenged. Not sure if I’m digging Ryohei’s shaved sides, but as long as he keeps the hair down it doesn’t look so bad. Maybe it’s because he’s so pale and his hair is so dark, so the contrast is blinding to the eye. Keita, well what can I say. He doesn’t look that bad, although it doesn’t look like his dancing has improved from last time I saw it.

Don’t forget to buy the single.

G-Dragon is ripped

At the MAMA event that happened a couple of days ago, YG artists took the stage and blew everyone away. More specifically G-Dragon that is. During a performance he had a wardrobe malfunction, while in the middle of his “Heartbreaker” set his pants ripped in a happy region.

Speaking of wardrobe, what is up with the white furry jacket? I know he’s a pretty boy, but really, do they really need to dress him in such things? He isn’t a girl, did they forget that? Although I am digging the hair a bit, long hair, shaved sides, reminds me of my old haircut. What I do like are his earrings. They’re pretty nice, looks like it’s to be about 0G. Now if he can only gain maybe like 5-10 pounds and not look like he’s anorexic, he’d be a lot hotter.

While I’m prone to say this is “omg ahaha”, what really got my attention in his performance was the camera work. That has got to be one of the worst cameraman workmanship I have seen. Not only did the camera man focus on G-Dragon’s misfortune, but you can’t even see the entire performance. What about the people in the control room? That couldn’t have been the only camera on set, as the stage is placed between two sets of audiences.

I don’t know about you, but I think that cameraman’s lack of ‘camera work’ is a lot more faulty than the wardrobe malfunction. It was more of a fancam than anything else.

I’m adding this because I like the the choreography.

Yamapi & Toma Ikuta in a new unit!?

Tomohisa Yamashita and best friend Toma Ikuta may be forming a new unit called “Iku & Pi” a.k.a. “the ikemen unit.” Well at least just for one night.

Yamapi who just finished his first solo concert at Yokohama Arena, had one his best friends make a special guest appearance during the second half of the show and they instantly formed “the ikemen unit.”

Both of them joined Johnny’s Entertainment in 1996 and became really close friends. So when it was decided that Yamapi was to have his first solo concert, he immediately called Toma and asked him to make an appearance.

It’s like a dream come true to have both of us on the same stage,” Yamapi stated, and with a happy smile, “It was like going back to our JR. days.

The last time they were both on stage was seven years ago when both Yamapi and Toma were part of Johnny’s Jr.

AKB48 at MAMA 2009!

The girls of AKB48 have done it again and this time they are invading MAMA (MNET Asia Music Awards) in Seoul. They won some type of award, I would tell you what that award is, but I can’t read Korean well. I bet it was probably along the lines of ‘Best female group from Japan‘ or something. They won the “Asian Recommend” award.

Anyways, its good to see that the group is prospering. Although the Korean groups they show in the video look like they are at a total loss as to why there are 12 girls on stage, I think some of them actually enjoyed them. They should be happy not all the girls were there. Then they’d just be baffled. The song they sang was “River.”

Notice how they panned in and out to the Korean artists. Taecyeon of group 2PM was seen counting how many girls on stage. While some say that, we say this. Taecyeon was actually pointing out to a fellow member of 2PM, which ones he liked and wanted to do. But then he got caught and stopped. I’m sure Taecyeon went home, looked up the group and found out he has more of selection. Well hopefully it leads to 2PM going to Japan and then you find out Taecyeon hooked up with a member or two… or three… or if luck would have it four. Just kidding.

Also, I just realized (more like found out) why AKB48’s promotions in US went so well and why they are at MAMA… they’re company is managed by a Korean. It explains the “Korean playbook”.
