Big Bang’s Electric Love Bus

Big Bang finally started their 2010 tour in Japan called “ELECTRIC LOVE TOUR.” To commemorate this wonderful occasion they guys designed their own tour bus. The group will be in Japan this month to do their tour and then head back home.

They kicked off their tour in Yokohama Arena yesterday (2/10) and will do another show tonight and will head to Kobe World Hall (13~14), Nippon Budokan (16~17), Osaka and Nagoya.

SeungRi stated, “I can’t wait to go back home [to Korea.]” While G-Dragon informs their fans that “all the preparations have been going smoothly, so please enjoy it to your hearts content.

If your attending the concert tour and have not been informed of the guidelines, you should take a look at their official Japanese website as they have instructions for conduct before, during and after the show; also information on how to give presents to the members, available in Japanese, Korean and English. You can view them here.

If you can’t make it to the concert, have no fear. TBS Channel will be airing a line up of Big Bang concerts for all their fans.

w-inds. new album after 19 months

It’s been a while since we updated… so we’re updating with some awesome news.

Dance vocal group (or as some like say “hip hop” group) w-inds., will release their new album (title TBA) on March 3, 2010. It’s been one year and seven months since the group released their last album “Seventh Ave.”  For the first time since their début in 2001, the group took a year off from releasing any album and last year was spent releasing singles. w-inds. is not typically known for releasing an album every year, but it seems that this time they are evolving and took their time with this new album.

The last thing w-inds. released was their single “Truth~Saigo no sinjitsu~” in December of 2009. So for some fans, this is an eagerly anticipating album, for others (like myself), I’m not that eager, but I am anticipating what kind of album this one will be. They’ve done some collaborations and their music seems geared with some Western arsenal. Not only that but they have finally gone back to their roots with the PV’s and show appearances. They have more dancing in them, which I missed dearly. For a while after Ageha, they stopped dancing a lot in their videos.

So far I only found 11 out of the 15 songs that will be on the new album. There will also be two versions of the album, a normal and 1st press which includes a DVD with all six single PV’s.

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.

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.
