Keita Tachibana and Koike Teppei attend drama event

ohitorisama

The cast of new TBS drama “Ohitorisama” was held today (10/13).

The story is about a 33-year old teacher (Arisa Mizuki) who falls for her junior of 10 years (Koike Teppei). It’s a romantic comedy.

Arisa Mizuki and Koike Teppei are both excited for this drama, as it’s been a while since a romantic comedy like this has been aired.

Mizuki stated with a smile that, “there are a lot of dramas out there where it’s about children and housewives, so doing this kind of drama is quite refreshing.”

Also at the event was Keita Tachibana (w-inds.), who will also be starring in the drama as Teppei’s best friend.

Keita Tachibana of w-inds. will co-star with Koike Teppei of WaT, in his first drama on TBS called, Ohitorisama.

Playing opposite of him is fellow artist Arisa Mizuki.

Keita will play Hiroyuki Harada, close friend of Shinichi Kamisaka (Koike).

The Drama will start 10/16 on TBS. The first fifteen minutes will run from 22:00~23:09, but the original time will be 22:00~22:54 and will air every Friday night.

This will be Keita’s first drama since his music career and his solo activities.

Good luck Keita, I hope your acting skills are up to par because your opposites are experienced and your not. I hope it’s a lot better than your first movie with w-inds. in 2002, Starlight; because that was just straight giggles. I’ll be watching and praying you don’t look bad.

So do you agree??

Apparently a majority of older women answered this pole. With that said, some of them should feel like pedo’s with some of those choices (i.e. Yamada Ryosuke). And how hyde lost to Jaejoong I will never understand, hyde is by far the better looking one, although I’m also prone to say that TOP looks better than all of them, but that’s a personal opinion and not based on physical looks alone. How Hotaka beat out any of the Big Bang, DBSK, GLAY members is beyond my me too. Well it goes to show that Japanese women there have odd taste. At least some they got it right with INORAN, you can never go wrong with him, although he should have been number one, he totally beats out Hotaka.

I do give props to DBSK and Arashi for having most if not all, it’s members in this ranking.

Talk about copy cats?

daichi miura keita tachibana

Oh Keita, first it was confirmed that you were a little player, and now you just confirmed for us you are copying your Korean friends a copy cat. First the G-Dragon hair color from a few months ago, then the Jaejoong hair color and cut from last month, back to the G-Dragon platinum blonde hair color and cut. Are we on a creativity block? Or are your stylists lacking, that you need my services again?

On another note, that photo above was taken today (JST) on Keita‘s radio show. Daichi Miura paid him a long awaited visit.

Keita wrote on his blog that it’s been a long time since he’s seen Daichi, especially since they belong to the same agency. He also says that Daichi is “Japan’s #1 artist,” “his performance level is that of a world pro,” “he’s a genius,” and  “he’s a great artist, I’m actually kind of jealous.” At the same time finds a way to promote Daichi’s upcoming album, Who’s The Man.  Keita did mention that he would love to perform with Daichi at least once.

Well Keita you’re love for everyone is awesome, especially since you are holding an American flag. So when are you gonna get w-inds. over here and perform for all you’re non-Asian fans?

鹿児島。keita w-inds.

This photo was taken last month at Kagoshima, with w-inds.‘ back dancers on Keita‘s day off. He looks buff doesn’t he? He actually makes some of those dancers look small.

Keita’s aiming for the porn industry?

keita

Oh Keita, its about time. No that wasn’t a stab at the title, but at what you’re about to read. Although I knew that title would get a majority of you.

It’s about time we found something on someone else other than a Jyani’s boy. Keita Tachibana of w-inds. is rumored to be ‘aiming‘ for an actress, N-san.

There were previous rumors of him and Aya Matsura being really close friends and at one point dating. After Keita made w-inds. cancel some of their shows due to him getting bronchitis, rumor has it that he’s been seen with Aya again.

Keita is a bit of a playboy, and would disappear with a girl from time to time. Even if the girl is there and doesn’t want to… this time the girl didn’t even go to the goukon, and she usually does“, said a staff member.

It’s normal to see people and invite them goukon’s if you see them at work. Now a days, you see a lot of pretty boys down at Shibuya Station rent mansion’s (apartments) that cost around 35,000yen, because of the location. Keita’s also been seen riding in fancy cars, it seems he’s become one of them. Chances are he met the girl at a goukon and seems to be one of “Namie Amuro’s good friend”, which he finds appealing.

Amuro doesn’t really hate anyone, whether or not they are actually good friends, I’m not so sure. But no matter where she’s at, she’s always singing Amuro songs. I’m not even sure if she buys her albums, but I really do want to see hear her sing those songs in karaoke.

It seems he’s got a thing for girls in the office, who are older.

Whenever he see’s a cute girl on TV, he’ll ask someone to introduce him to her.

The latest seems to be this actress, N-san. He seemed to be in a trance when he saw N-san, and asked a friend to introduce him to her.

This person is different from Aya, so it’s not her. This girl (N-san) is in a completely different industry than Keita and a different kind of actress than Aya. So the likely hood of bringing down and finding out who it is, is unlikely.

Different kind of actress? Oh Keita, we know you watch porn, but really, an AV actress? I know you can do better than that. We all know how low quality porn is in that country and the girls. Unless it was foreign porn, then maybe. Oh well, happy hunting to those who want to know who it is. If you do, please share the nasty photos with the rest of us.

Jaejoong expresses his feelings for Keita

keita jaejoong

What is Boys Pop Factory? It’s a yearly event that has some of the hottest male singers in J-Pop today and part of that was close friends Keita (w-inds.) and Jaejoong along with Yoochun (TVXQ). There were other artists but I’m only touching base with these three. As to why Ryo and Ryuichi of w-inds. wasn’t there, I do not know; but I’m sad and at the same time, w-inds. has become just Keita, so it’s not like they were really missing anyone.

Keita performed 4 songs, two of which were w-inds. songs, “Everyday” and “Kirei da“. The other two were performed with Sakazaki Kounosuke.

Jaejoong and Yoochun sang “Been so long” by m-flo, “Begin“, “Rainy Blue” and “COLORS~Melody and Harmony~” with Sakazaki Kounosuke.

When Jaejoong and Yoochun spoke of Keita during their MC. Stating, “I’m close friends with Keita!” and that they “…go karaoke together and sing 20 songs”, and noted that “…maybe that’s why Keita got sick…?!“.

Yoochun replied in a surpsing manner, “Keita doesn’t drink sake!?

Nope, he doesn’t.”  Then he continues listing stuff they did, “we went to Tokyo Tower together“.  Jaejoong describes,  “Keita’s a very unique friend; one of a kind in Japan“; supposedly Jaejoong was ‘laying his feelings down on the stage and looking very happy‘.

It was known earlier from Keita, that he is very close friends with Jaejoong. So close that even during rehearsal and in the dressing room, those two were two peas in a pod.

Now if only GD was back in Japan, I bet he’d be stuck on GD too. Oh well, one can only hope that if that does happen it’s Keita going to Korea and not GD back in Japan.

Check out Jae and Yoo at Boys Pop Factory night.




Although I’m not a fan of TVXQ, listening to these makes me want to listen to Lead‘s live all over again. Something about Jae’s voice or the way he sings, makes me want to poke my eyes out.
