Big Bang wants to hear your voice

big bang koe wo kiksasete

Big Bang is back with their third single, “Koe wo kisasete” (Let me hear your voice). The song will be the theme song to new drama “Ohitorisama” that stars Alisa Mizuki and Teppei Koike.

There will be three different versions, of course with different goodies.

This song is very J-Pop; very Christmas-like theme, literally. I do like this song though. TaeYang just has one of those voices that is so ‘easy listening’. Daesung and SeungRi also sound good, but TaeYang sounds the best in this song. GD and TOP sound like themselves. Really can’t say anything because they’re rapping is the i-sound-the-same-not-so-changing rap melody. And according to CDJ, Teddy is one of the composers of this song. Teddy is an awesome producer, no wonder I like this song.

I just wish they would come up with better covers to their albums and singles. Really, are we on a creativity block?

I’m excited are you?

Just a note… this hasn’t even been released and the Limited Edition with goods is sold out at CDJ. I’m sad I really wanted that one.

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.
