Keita Tachibana and Koike Teppei attend drama event


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.

J-Pop has its Takoyaki boys and then some

takoyaki boys

Akira of Lead and fellow member Shinya had a little takoyaki party with the Izaki brothers (FLAME).

While Yusuke and Hisato Izaki are busy making the food, Akira sat back, relaxed as the two ‘experts’ in making takoyaki show off their skills (aka let them do all the work, while he just waits to eat).

Shinya did lend a helping hand, but Akira explains that, “the Izaki brothers are very serious when they make takoyaki,” and also explains that they have the ‘Hiten Mitsurugi-ryu’ when it comes to handling a knife. If you don’t know that reference, go watch Rurouni Kenshin.

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.
