J-actors I have soft spot for

Every time i read about Top 10 Favorite Something-something, somehow it always made me challenged to list my version, yet i decided against it every single time mainly because i feel like the rank or order may change every year. But then i figured it could also be the good chance for me to talk about them, so i decided to give it a go.

In this edition, i’m gonna cover my favorite Japanese actors. Continue reading “J-actors I have soft spot for”

Turning two next month, Day6 already has two EPs and one studio album (not to mention a number of singles) under their belt. So they shall have enough songs of their own to sing/perform on stage or during concerts by now — and to capture the listeners’ attention. But, if you’re searching their name on YouTube, you’re bound to find videos of them covering other artists’ songs, be it from fellow labelmates or other Korean or western singers/groups.

VS Arashi: The Special Games

In other dramas, i’d be all ranty by now, but the fact that i am not doesn’t mean it’s all good, i just wish not sound like a broken record.

But in the end…

Whether or not you’re a Linkin Park fan, i’m sure you’ve heard of the heartbreaking news about the band’s vocalist, Chester Bennington. Of all the celebrity deaths i’ve read hitherto, this is probably the first one that hit me the hardest, mainly because Linkin Park played quite a big part in my teenage years.ย I listened to their music growing up and related to their lyrics a lot.
