Things I hope to see change in J-pop and K-pop

So with the new year here's some things I hope that will change in both the J and K pop industry.

They're big wishes and most probably won't happen anytime soon, but I really do wish they would for both the sake of the artists, fans and future fans.

  • Youtube access for J-pop. I'm looking at you Johnny's

  • Subbing of their content. V-app for k-pop has been revolutionary in my eyes and I hope eng subbing becomes more widespread.

  • Idols allowed to date without judgment. Yes, I understand we love our idols but that love means we need to let them love.

  • Less racism and sexism. I'm sick of seeing dry humping and insenstive jokes. Your fans aren't just domestic, the world is watching.

Arashi Member Love pt 1 (Sho and Aiba)

So following on, here's the top 5 things I love about the remaining  members of Arashi!

ShoCollapse )

AibaCollapse )

Arashi Member Love pt 1 (Ohno and Matsujun)

So, seeing as I just posted my top 10 things I lvoe about Nino, I thought I may as well do a short list of the things I love about the other 4 members!

OhnoCollapse )

MatsumotoCollapse )

Johnny's Groups I'm Interested In

So recently I've become interested in other Johnny's groups.

At first I was uber happy when another Johnny's would appear on an Arashi show, but recently after binging on things liek The Music Day and FNS where you see other performances, especially Johnny's Medleys, I've been really into certain songs.
Also, some groups and their personalities have caught my attention.

So here's a list of them from highest curiosity.

Also, if you know anything about them you want to share I'm all ears. It'll be of great help.

Nino Love

So I thought I should do a post on my favourite member of Arashi...NEENS!

This fancy looking fellow quickly became my favourite after I started to get to know his personality from VS Arashi. Although, looking back, I should probably be worried that I was attracted to a person who would pick on his friends, making fun of anything and anyone in sight with no regard for the fact that there's cameras filming him.

Anyways, so he's 10 things I love about Ninomiya Kazunari

  1. His sense of humour.

  2. His brains. He really is a genius and it shows in his jokes.

  3. His voice. Niji is so amazing and I love it when he mumbles along to music like in Arashi Ni Shiyagare episode with Sekai No Owari

  4. His acting. Such an amaing actor, from the first drama I watched Ryusei No Kizuna in the final episode

  5. His hamburger hands. So cute

  6. His smile and wink. So charming.

  7. His sexy poses. Such a multi-faceted idol.

  8. His love for his members. He may pick on them, but you get the sense that he quietly observes them like a mum.

  9. His hard working spirit. He sure does love to try and go home early but he really does try his hardest when he's bothered.

  10. His magic. That date episode on Arashi Ni Shiyagare with Satomi Ishihari, where he pulls out a diamond ring...kyah

Non-Johnny's J-Music Love

While I'm at it here's some of my favourite non-Johnny's songs from Japan.

It's hard for em to get into other Jap songs because it's so hard to see any mvs and performances. Also I'm not a big fan of overly cutsie, lolita style stuff.


Alexandros songs

  • Wataridori

  • Dracula La

  • Run Away

  • Starrrrrrr

Sekai No Owari - Starlight Parade
Remioromen - Knoayuki
Ikimono-gakari - Anata
Ai Otsuka - Planetarium
Perfume - Chocolate Disco

Kpop love

So I've recently started getting into Kpop. I was into certain BigBang and 2ne1 songs last year but this year I've really started getting into it.
Also, I'm really into V app lately. It's a fan's dream. Watch them unedited and get subs in a couple days. Hell yeah!

Arashi Music Love

So I really love Arashi's music. I've really come to love the way their unique voices sound together. Especially when their producers really make use of MJ, Aiba and Sho's unique tones. Like in the bridge for Truth (hot damn)

Also, has anyone else noticed how much MatsuJun has improved his singing. He used to be very high and nasaly, but I've noticed in some live performances he's really smoothed it out. And gotten deeper. I was so surprised when I realised it was him in the harmony once.

Arashi TV love

So I first got introduced to Arashi after watching Vs Arashi. It was being shown on tv in Australia in the afternoons and I thought it was hilarious. At the time I didn't know they were a band, thought they were just the hosts.

Than I thought, wow, MJ is cute and youtubed him. Than I saw this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xBQUCoPfH1Q and decided to watch Hana Yori Dango.

From that I loved the theme songs which got me into Arashi's music and eventually everything else.

Nowadays my favourite variety show is Arashi ni Shiyagare but the last couple of months I've been watching Arashi no Shukudai Kun.

Anyways. Enough rambling. Here's a list of some of my favourite dramas.

  • Kazoku Game (Sho)

  • Ryusei No Kizuna (Nino)

  • Freeter, Ie O Kau (Nino)

  • Yokoso, Wagaye e (Aiba)

  • The Quiz Show (Sho)

ME, MYSELF & I

Hi, I'm Joanne from Australia. Most of the communities I follow on LJ are Arashi related so heads up on that.
I'm a uni student and this year will be my 3rd year...and also my 3rd course. I've changed courses that many times, yes. But in my mind it's better to change career paths now than when I'm in my 30s with a mortgage and family to be responsible for.

I'm an F1 fan (totally random I know). I started watching about 5 years ago and was soon a Vettel fan, not because he wins a lot but because he seems pretty down to earth and funny.

My current taste in music is Kpop and certain Jpop (mainly Johnny's). For about 5-6 years I was into alt rock and indie music. Bands like The Strokes, Arctic Monkeys, The Vaccines, The Macabees and Interpol. However after listening to nothing but depressing Interpol lyrics for 6 months whilst being in a slump made me hella down.

Then came Arashi, Kpop and Johnny's. So I've been listening to Arashi for 1.5 years. I recently started getting into Kpop in the last half year and I've been getting into other Johnny's in the last few months.

Anyways, I'll post more of my opinions on music in diff entries so it's easier to read


Also, if you need someone to talk to I'm all ears. My first year of uni was pretty rough so just putting it out there for anyone going through a slump and wanting reassurance or someone to talk to
