Sister’s Slam Dunk S2 (K-Variety)

Wow, 2019 has been flying by so quickly! It’s already April and summer will be around the corner soon.

Anyone into Korean variety shows? I have grown fond of Sister’s Slam Dunk Season II, especially its cast members and how much effort they used to transform themselves into a girls group/band. The show focused on producing a group of diverse celebrities into one-time ensemble.

I adored Hong Jin-Young, Kim Sook and Kang Ye-won, as well as, the other members, Hong Jin-kyung, Han Chae-young, Minzy and Jeon So-mi. I love their chemistry, how they bonded and cherished each other even though they were so different from one another, personality and experience-wise.

Minzy and So-mi are quite well-known in K-Pop along Hong Jin-Young (professional singers), but they were so understanding and patient toward their Unnies. Keeping everything real was another aspect that made the show wonderful, especially when they shared stories of their struggles and dreams. Though, the show has ended, I am sure they will remain friends for a long time.

I was truly proud and happy for the Unnies when their Music Bank performance was a success and their song dominated the music charts on the first day of release. I emphasize again that not all of them are professional musicians and they did their very best to achieve the project’s goal.

Hopefully, they will have a third season one day with a few of the same members. In the meantime, please enjoy their music and performance below, as well as, the full season of the show on Viki and Youtube.

Arashi going on hiatus after 12/31/2020

I am sure that everyone has seen or heard of Arashi going on hiatus in 2021.

This was a complete blindside, I was pretty surprise by this unexpected announcement. However, I wasn’t in denial nor shock as the SMAP break-up, which even the slightest idea would have been rejected. I vented for days to my friends who thought I was crazy. LOL

I was pretty calm for this. Now, all I have for my beloved Arashi is understanding and support. ❤ ❤ They deserve to take a break as they have been working since their teens. Their tight-knit-ness (is that even a word?) is evident during their explanation on how thorough their discussions were for this conclusion. I am glad that it was collaborative and Arashi is all for one and one for all. They can come back whenever they are ready (hopefully get married and with have families), I will wait for them forever. I am just very happy to have been a part of this incredible Arashian family.

Trailer and Themesong announced for Shinobi no Kuni starring Ohno Satoshi

Is everyone psyched about this?! I am super pumped up and cannot wait to see Oh-chan in action.

Johnny’s super group Arashi will be singing the theme song for the upcoming ninja film “Shinobi no Kuni”.

Arashi’s leader Satoshi Ohno is the leading man in the film, playing the role of “Mumon”. A lazy but very elite ninja who has gained much notoriety due to his skills. One day Mumon takes takes a job that requires him to kill a ninja from another family, what he doesn’t know is that his actions lead to a bloody battle between Oda Nobunaga’s army and the ninja of the Iga Province, who Mumon belongs to.

Supporting cast include Satomi Ishihara who will be playing Mumon’s wife Okuni. Ryohei Suzuki, Yusuke Ieyasu, and Hey! Say! JUMP’s Chinen Yuri round out the rest of the main cast.
The theme song titled “Tsunagu” will be Arashi’s 52nd single overall. It will be released in the standard CD only and limited edition CD+DVD versions. The high energy song features prominent electric guitars and shamisen, perfectly melding the two styles of past and present. The last time Arashi sang a movie theme song was for the 2013 hit “Platinum Data”. With such an all star cast and the power of Arashi behind the film “Shinobi no Kuni” will no doubt be one of Japan’s biggest hits of the summer.

“Tsunagu” will be released on June 28th, 2017 while “Shinobi no Kuni” hits theaters on July 1st.

Arashi are hopeless dorks in “Don’t You Get It?” PV

Arashi dropped their newest album “Are You Happy?” last October 26. In the album, the group starts from the basic universal joy of listening to music and presenting songs that make the listener feel happy.

Check out the music video for the lead song “Don’t You Get It?”, which features the members just being all kinds of goofy and ridiculous. What do you think of this latest release from Arashi?

Absolutely agree, they are still so adorable and dorky, especially Oh-chan. Love the upbeat and catching tune, their casual clothing and the doggies. XD Just cannot wait to get their Are you Happy? album in the mail.
