Jin & You

In L.A. in June.

Just to let you all know… the concert sold out in about 1-2 hours. Maybe you’ll find some on ebay.. or most of you probably know Jin himself, so just ask him.

All songs will be in English. Hopefully all the fans can understand it.

Special Guest at Big Bang’s Electric Love Tour

J-Pop artist Thelma Aoyama made a special guest appearance at Big Bang‘s Budokan concert, singing her collaborations with TaeYang (SOL) “Fall in love.”

Big Bang also gave a message to PON and asked Okada-san advice on a new introduction for the boys. You can see it at the end of the video. TaeYang went on to say that it’s because of everyone cheering them on that they are able to have concerts in Japan.

I’m loving TOP‘s short hair, but sometimes I’m reminded of Spock.

Hiroki Nakadoi to take Lead in drama

They are conquering the drama world by storm.

This time Lead leader, Hiroki Nakadoi, has been chosen to play ace gymnast in a new drama, Tumbling. The drama starts in April on TBS.

The drama is a comedy about a boys gymnastics team. Also starring is Yusuke Yamamoto, Kouji Seto, Shouhei Miura, Takahiro Nishijima (AAA), Azusa Okamoto and introducing a new face, Rei Okamoto.

Hiroki was chosen for the role because in every drama that he has appeared in he has played a high school student.

Although I don’t have a lot of experience in doing dramas and I am really nervous about this one, I am thankful for this role that will let me use my athletic ability. I’ll give this my all,” said Hiroki with a lot of enthusiasm.

Lead will also be having their fan club event this summer, Leaders Party 7, starting 3/27.

If you didn’t know Hiroki is also a B-boy, so doing all those gymnastic moves should be easy. I’m happy that they chose him to play a lead role.
