Yamapi & Toma Ikuta in a new unit!?

Tomohisa Yamashita and best friend Toma Ikuta may be forming a new unit called “Iku & Pi” a.k.a. “the ikemen unit.” Well at least just for one night.

Yamapi who just finished his first solo concert at Yokohama Arena, had one his best friends make a special guest appearance during the second half of the show and they instantly formed “the ikemen unit.”

Both of them joined Johnny’s Entertainment in 1996 and became really close friends. So when it was decided that Yamapi was to have his first solo concert, he immediately called Toma and asked him to make an appearance.

It’s like a dream come true to have both of us on the same stage,” Yamapi stated, and with a happy smile, “It was like going back to our JR. days.

The last time they were both on stage was seven years ago when both Yamapi and Toma were part of Johnny’s Jr.

Are Yamapi and Seira Kagami already living together?

yamapiseira

Earlier in June, magazine Friday released photo’s of Seira Kagami and Tomohisa Yamashita. And now they re-printed them, why?

Well gossip has it that the two are living together.

Friday did release a photo of the two on a date at the Akachouchin. Their faces were so close, its like they were [going to] kiss. A Yuurakuchou guard at Akachouchin, who is a fan, witnessed this.

It’s refreshing and good feeling,” quoted from BUBKA, “it has nothing to do with Abiru.

What was the reason that Yamapi and Yuu broke up?

It happened in March at an after party. They met at a private movie screening. But the girl he called out to meet was a half-Japanese model that he liked who is A’s friend, K. After that, they went to a club and Y started develope some feelings for her,” said A-san. (cited from BUBKA)

But the photo that Friday released happened in June, so why bring this up now?

Well according to BUBKA, they spoke to a staffer who has proof, a photo, that the two have been living together. But the staffer doesn’t want any trouble with Y’s agency so they haven’t revealed it. (from a reporter at a weekly magazine)

In the photo that Friday published, the knit cap that Yamapi was wearing is the same as the one [in a photo] that Kagami had uploaded on her blog.

Just a week after Y contracted the influenza, he went to Kagami’s event. Even with filming his drama and having a busy schedule, he has a lot of pressure on him. But this hasn’t stopped him from being all ‘lovey-dovey’,” said a reporter from the weekly magazine. (cited from BUBKA)

They tried looking for the photos of the knit cap that Kagami [supposedly] uploaded but none were found. Maybe she took them down after Friday published the photo of Yamapi and herself? But it’s also possible that the photo that Friday published [that had the same knit cap Kagami uploaded] was just a coincidence.

If that picture of them living together does exist, then we know for a fact that they are together.

With what Kagami said a few days ago at the event she attended, it does make one wonder.

Yamashita Tomohisa is on edge?

yamapi

Yamapi on edge? Is he bathing in the sensativity that is Kagami!?

On 9/17, Friday has reported that Yamapi took out his model girlfriend, Seira Kagami to a pub for a date.

They say that the pair of lovers were spotted huddled in a corner drinking alcohol together.

“Yamashita and Kagami are not going out. They are nothing more than friends,” says a Johnny’s associate.

The two, though, do know each other that much is known. Kagami hasn’t had a boyfriend in a while, and these two definitely have some type of relationship.

“Lately, Kagami has started going to clubs and singing; at least 2-3 times a month. And Yamashita has been seen going to these clubs. There are times though that it has been unexpected.”

Though their relationship does seem to be good, we’re not exactly sure what it is.

“I’m not really sure when they started seeing each other since this type of stuff is usually kept hidden, but it also looks like he wasn’t able to cut it off completely with Yuu. It doesn’t look like it this time; I get the feeling that this relationship is an inseparable one. And that’s where the rumors come from.”

Even though him and Yuu broke it off, their relationship also seemed like an inseparable one. They’re not sure about Yamashita, but Yuu and Kagami seem to have a friend in common also. Someone said, “The relationship seems to be at a subtle place right now.”

Yamapi’s drama, Buzzer Beat hasn’t been doing so well, not as much as they had hoped. It looks like that this is a scandal that they are just letting go.

“To tell you the truth, the drama’s that Johnnys’ star in haven’t been doing well. The only one that’s done pretty well was Tokuban, which had all the members of SMAP appear and that was at 7%,” said a reporter.

The time for Johnny Kitagawa’s talent is coming to an end with this era. “The ratings only get higher when they have a “ikemen” starring in the drama,” says an industry insider.

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.

KARA in Thailand

kara

On 2ch, someone posted some links of KARA‘s rehearsal and live in Thailand. Along with a video of SHINee in Thailand as well. They arrived on 9/16 for the Thai-Korea concert. KARA, SHINee, and Ryan represented Korea for this friendly gathering. To represent Thailand, Golf&Mike also performed. If you don’t know Golf&Mike, they are part of Johnny’s in Japan. They had a side unit with NEWSYamapi to form the group GYM.

Don’t forget that KARA is also going to make their debut in Japan soon too.

[UPDATE] Yamapi is off the market…

yamapiseira

For now…

Talking about love lives, its out in the open that NEWS’ member Yamashita Tomohisa has been dating model Seira Kagami for three months.

This un-inviting news to Yamapi fans was discovered on 9/15. The girlfriend, Seira Kagami (22) is half Canadian (father) and half Japanese (mother). They’ve been dating for about three months.

Neither of them have ever worked together but met earlier this year through a mutual friend. According to some people they’ve been dating since the beginning of summer.

Yamapi attended one of Kagami‘s lives in July. Even though he did not stand out too much, people saw the both of the happy together. Kagami apparently also tells some of her most trusted staff members some of their happy times.

Well since the guys’ contracts for not having girlfriend’s is probably lifted, and their fans are older now, it’s good to see news like this out in the open. That or it makes for really great publicity on both their parts, which would explain why JE hasn’t done anything about it yet.
