Kubozuka Yosuke

Post by aldonia » Jul 25th, '05, 16:22

Has he had any come out? Cause currently I've got money to spend and I'm anxious to buy one if he's got one. I checked Amazon JP but er, I can't read the descriptions so I'm pretty much SOL, especially for the things with no cover or anything. Some look like they COULD be, but I don't want to spend money on something think it's one thing and ending up getting something completely different. ><

Thank you so much to anyone who can answer this for me :D

I took a look at his agent's website, and I don't think he's been in any photobooks. I only see movies, dramas and CMs.

You can always blow some cash on his movies from www.yesasia.com though. Unless you have them already. :-)

Also, here's his page at jdorama, in case you haven't seen it.

He's definitely one of my favorite actors, and my sis thinks he's uber hawt.

Oh darn! I was so hoping one of those was a photobook so I could have a new droolworthy photobook, other than my Miyavi one which is getting worn out from looking at it so much XD Oh well! Thanks for the info, I hadn't seen his agent's site yet. He's a great actor -- really versatile & quirky in a lovable way (Strawberry On The Shortcake anyone? His english = to die for :wub: ) and.. your sister's right, really hot. O_O Even my friend who doesn't like Japanese dramas or culture/music saw my WP of him and said, "DAMN, that guy is hot!" ^_^V

Thanks again for the info. =]

Sorry if I'm a little late on that.Indeed, Yosuke Kubozuka didn't get a photobook for himself.And quite frankly I think he's the kind of actor who will never be in one lol, he's way too un-idol like for that I guess (sadly for us lol)

BUT, he "made" a photobook himself, of his creations, you can find the whole book scanned here, at my livejournal:

Actor Yosuke Kubozuka survives fall from 9th floor condo

Monday, June 7, 2004 at 07:46 JST

Actor Yosuke Kubozuka
YOKOHAMA — Actor Yosuke Kubozuka survived a fall from the balcony of his ninth-floor condominium in Yokosuka, Kanagawa Prefecture on Sunday, sustaining injuries, police said.

The 25-year-old up-and-coming actor fell about 26 meters, hit a wire mesh fence surrounding the condo building and landed on a lawn.

Kubozuka's fall from balcony an accident, agency says

Tuesday, June 8, 2004 at 07:55 JST
TOKYO — Actor Yosuke Kubozuka's fall from the balcony of his ninth-floor condominium in Yokosuka, Kanagawa Prefecture, on Sunday was an accident caused by carelessness, his management agency said Monday.

According to a statement released by Infini Inc, the 25-year-old Kubozuka was trying to detach a device from the balcony to hold cloth carp streamers when he fell "due to carelessness." The actor is conscious but has broken some bones and needs to remain in the hospital while he recuperates, the agency said. (Kyodo News)

Kubozuka's popularity takes dive after nine-story fall

June 11, 2004

No soft landing for Kubozuka's career.
Bad boy actor Yosuke Kubozuka may have miraculous survived a nine-story fall
from his Yokosuka apartment, but even if he wasn't trying to commit suicide,
his career standing in Japan's fickle entertainment world can expect to
plummet, according to Shukan Jitsuwa.

Kubozuka amazingly walked away with just a few broken bones after his
26-meter plunge on June 6, but now conjecture is rife over whether he
deliberately jumped or accidentally fell.

"His handlers are saying he fell while he was trying to untie carp streamers
he'd put up for his young son, but I think you can look at the incident as a
botched suicide attempt," a celebrity world insider tells Shukan Jitsuwa.
"There're a couple of weird things about what happened. A fence about 9
meters away from the apartment cushioned his fall before he landed on a
patch of grass. He must have been traveling at a huge speed when he jumped
to have been able to hit that fence before reaching the ground. If he'd only
fallen, as his handlers claim, he would have landed just a few meters away
from the apartment at best. A woman who saw the whole thing has told
reporters she saw things so shocking she hasn't got the courage to put them
into words. It's almost as though she's being told the keep quiet in case
she says something that will destroy Kubozuka's career."

Not that there seems too much to get rid of anyway.

The firebrand 25-year-old has earned a reputation for blowing his top at the
slightest provocation. Those who know him say it wouldn't be out of
character to attempt suicide as he threatened to take his own life several
times before following arguments with his wife.

Kubozuka is also violent, having attacked a paparazzi cameraman in October
last year. His victim pressed charges and Kubozuka escaped jail only by
paying hush money to his victim and a 100,000 yen fine in cops' coffers.

He later appeared on TV in a T-shirt swathed in obscenities directed at the
media, and further cultivated his bad boy image by speaking out publicly on
behalf of marijuana, a weed most Japanese equate with hard drugs, as Sir
Paul McCartney knows better than most.

Kubozuka's tarnished name had already made it hard for him to get work.

"When his son was born in October last year, he announced that he was taking
paternity leave and spent much of his time at home. But, that was only
because he couldn't find any work. Nobody wanted him to do any acting for TV
dramas at all," a TV industry source says. "Kubozuka's handlers were trying
to flog him off to TV shows other than dramas. He got one travel show, but
caused so much trouble while they were making it that he's unlikely to ever
get another program like that again."

At one time, Kubozuka boasted of having lucrative endorsement deals with
seven companies, but now he has none. A movie released last month flopped so
badly, it failed to recoup its costs. Whatever really happened in Kubozuka's
apartment last week, it's hardly likely advertisers are going to be knocking
down his door.

"Any work that has a contract including a good behavior clause," an ad
agency insider tells Shukan Jitsuwa. "will automatically exclude Kubozuka
from the running."

This is not exactly latest news, since it happened nearly two years ago....

But I remember being in Japan when this happened and it was absolutely stunning to see how after this suicide/trying to take some decoration off his balcony attemp, we couldnt find any news about the incident... They reported about it for a few days (only sports news papers) and then it was like it never happened.... Im wondering what he is up to now
Doing research....

If you havesome time for an interview PM me... It would really help me out:)

Yeah, this news is pretty old...
He's got another drama coming out soon, if I remember correctly...and I think he was in a movie since his "accident"... I kind of slacked off following up on news about him, so I don't really remember...

I first noticed Yousuke-san in S.O.S. because I didn't like the Takki/Fukada Kyoko/Uchiyama Rina triangle. I was thoroughly disgusted and bored with Takki's infatuation with Kyoko's character so I had to rely on Yousuke's relationship with his teacher just to finish the drama. He was such a playboy........but a very cute one at that! I adored his character in S.O.S. and I felt really bad for him because he did an excellent job portraying a deeply wounded young man who put up a nonchalant front.

Then, GTO, the movie Ping Pong, and Long Love Letter did it for me.

I love the fact that he's usually the comic relief in both movies and dramas...

That second article is really bitchy..

He was in a movie in 2005 called Onaji Tsuki wo Miteiru and I think I read that he was filming a movie about wandering though the desert or something and it was supposed to be (the dialogue) in English he's also in Tobi ga kururi.

I heard people think the fall was a suicide but he still maintains it was a fall, I read he said he's no longer scared to play with his kid on the balcony or something. Could you actually jump 9 metres? (or fall 9 metres ;p)

i read about this quite a while ago -i can't be bothered finding a particular quote, its probably from one of those articles- but i was really shocked by how unsympathetic the media were towards him concerning this incident, you'd think that if it was actually an attempted suicide then people would show a bit more compassion... but then again i suppose his reputation would obviously play a role in how he's perceived by the media, especially considering the attacking-the-paparazzi and appearing on TV in "a T-shirt swathed in obscenities directed at the media" incidents, but i dont know too much about either of those occurrences so I guess I can't really comment.

anyway, i really like yousuke kubozuka -i think he's a great actor (one of my favourites) and although his popularity apparently declined a lot, i want to see him in something new so i hope he does have a film coming out, i might look into this in fact..

Well, well. It may be old news, but I just recently found out about this actor. I liked the movies he was in and I liked his characters. It's a shame he has such a reputation 'cause I was really looking forward to watching more of his stuff. It's no wonder his "recent stuff" is hard to find. In any case, I hope things work out for him and he straightens his shiz out.

Now he is truly an A-class actor. I wish I was seeing more of him because his movies are always a treat. I don't think Japan can handle him because he's just that good...

Where can I get access to those movies? Onaji tsuki wo Mieru and Amour-Legende? I really want to see them. Or, what I really want to see is Long Love Letter.

GO Movie

Post by jc1762 » Oct 22nd, '06, 00:12

I'm just curious, anyone know where I can find Go with English Subs I found the DVD ISO but there are no seeds.. Anyone know an active torrent for Go? I've been dying to see it since watching IWGP.

I wanted to say first, thanks so much for the pictures. I have had the haaaaardest time looking for pictures of him!

It's really a shame he's not in more recent dramas because he is one of the great actors around. Ive only seen him in IWGP, Long Love Letter, and S.O.S. (Tomie: Replay too, but that was so long ago, and I wasn't interested in J-actors and dramas then, that I don't even remember or care to remember Kubozuka Yousuke's role in it...all I remember was I didn't like the movie.) But he's played the really memorable characters and would probably do things you didn't expect him to do (like...when he kissed that student in the first episode of Long Love Letter). Not to mention, he can do both comedic, wacky scenes and serious scenes really nicely (I really love his role in LLL, even though I initially downloaded the series because of Yamapi who's character seems like all his other characters, except for Akira in NWP).

I hope I can find some of his movies =X I want to watch them.

I read in IMDB that he is filming another movie this year...anyway could anybody tell me where to get his movie amour legende...it seems cool and he is getting even more cuter... damn he really ages well...anyway I just finished watching SOS and I dunno after watching this and comparing it to NWP I somehow feel that the character Akira copied Saeki...maybe because the way Saeki talk sometimes remind me of Akira except that Akira is wayyyy too over the top...even his character as King somehow related to Akira...well that's my personal opinion... Anyway I love SOS because of his side relationship....that kinda cover the annoyance that I have in regards to yui character...

Yosuke is definitely my favourite Japanese actor at the moment! I was sooo taken with his character as Takashi "The King" in IWGP, when I hadn't expected it AT ALL!!! :lol zenzen!! I mean, what with Nagase Tomoya, Watanabe Ken and chibi-YamaPi around, I would never have thought someone else will steal the show XD

What swept me off my feet forever was his performance in Laundry.... :wub: :wub: :wub: He makes an amazing role there! After that, Go and Ping Pong didn't come as surprises, but as confirmations of his great range and power of expression, and made me more in love with him.

I endured all the sickness of the "kawaii" Yui-chan and her fake "brother" (Tackey was SUCH a let down!!!!) only because of Saeki-san, in SOS. I'm glad to read about similar sentiments in this thread :P

Of course I am waiting with bated breath for the last episode in Long Love Letter!!! :wub: When I think I had downloaded that drama for Pi-chan! XD and I was putting off seeing it, because I didn't like the male lead's face in the photo on DramaWiki!!! XD Such is the irony of life! :lol

About momoji's question: I don't think amour-LEGENDE is available just now, probably we have to wait for it to come out on dvd first...

I am currently dl-ing the torrent for Onaji Tsuki wo Miteiru: well, downloading is too much said, as there has been no seeder for weeks :cry: I've reached 93.6% and it seems that's how it'll stay, but for a miracle!! So, minna-san, if anyone by any chance has that film, please seed, or please do share somehow, I beg of you!! :cry:

If anyone is looking for Ping Pong, or Go! or Laundry, please just pm me, 'cause I have those and I could help! :-) And if anyone has other films with him, please, please share!! Thank you very much! :-)

Thank you to the people who posted pictures! It seems there's no serious fansite for him out there, is it?

Awesome...Liantasse....I so want to watch that movie.....woooooyeahhh!!!! anyway do you know where I can find omiai kekkon direct download...cos torrent is taking too long...another drama that I want to watch cos of yosuke...hehehe I haven't watch long love letter is it good? I might want to dl it like next week after I'm done with class.... I have to agree with you too regarding King...I dunno I like him more than the lead...it's kinda funny isn't it he will always end up stealing the show regardless of the main actor...even in GTO ppl keep on talking bout him ...I mean like his part is quite small you hardly see him...goshhh awesomeness...hahhaha I'm currently watching laundry by the way..and things are looking up...

p/s: glad somebody agree with me that yui is freakishly annoying...

If anyone's in the L.A. area and wants to see him live, he's performing as Manji Line at Tokyo Night 2007 this coming Saturday. The event site is here.

Hello, minna-san! Forgot to update everyone on the fact that I now have Onaji Tsuki wo Miteiru, and I plan on uploading it soon, so if anyone is interested, just pm me! :-)

Is anyone from / in San Francisco? XD Happy, happy are those who get to see amour-Legende at the San Francisco Film Festival.... :cry: :cry: :cry: http://fest07.sffs.org/films/film_details.php?id=8

Such a beautiful pic they chose for the festival site! :wub:

I want to see that film sooo bad :cry: :cry: :cry: It wouldn't matter if it was the randomest film ever, that trailer and those pics are driving me crazy... :pale:

Yosuke is quiting the acting world or whatever?

Post by Teji » May 26th, '07, 16:31

I already heard about his current films... We all know that he had a bad period around 2004 not acting a lot, so I was told that since then he had some dificulties with his career! And in his new projects it seems he has no great roles, but once more I’m looking for oficial sources... But of course I agree with you to say that Yosuke is surely that terrific even with a tiny role! AND I absolutely want you to share your georgous pics!loool :lol
Anyway, it’s hard to find what he did on the net, I searched “Laundry” for a long time before havin it!I’m still not able to put a hand on “ Number One” and “Moichido Kiss”.I feel desperate cause I want to see more about him, he didn’t only play on GTO and IWGP, that’s so annoying! :-(
About him singing, does the name of the music band isn’t something like “manji Line “ ..
Oh! I just check the blog where I read that, and the information about him leaving the acting world is from february 2007 ( the article from May 11th)...I didn’t look for more!

Ah, so that's what "Manji Line" is about... I was quite puzzled by kidmigz post, above on this page :blink :-)

Here are the pictures from amour-Legende - they are from the official site, and the last one is from the SF FilmFest site (the one that imageshack ate, from my previous post).

Please do check that link for the trailer in my last post! And let me know what you think! :lol :wub:

There is a pretty spoilerish user-comment about the film, on imdb: http://imdb.com/title/tt0788000/ The overall ratings seem very poor, but this particular user gives it a high score.

I'm also at a loss on where to find Moichido Kiss and Number One. I'm also looking for Lipstick and Soshite, Tomodachi. About these last two, I'm very interested in suggesting them to my fansub team for subbing, so if you get any word on where they might be found please let me know.

Could you please share the link to that blog? Now you've made me very curious :roll

What other films / dramas have you watched with him, besides GTO, IGWP, LLL and Laundry? Which did you like best?

Oh sou ! I didn’t read kidmigz’s post before, but yeah that’s it... A ragga group music if I remember well! Yesterday evening, I found some of little amateur videos about him performing [ Take a look but it’s a very low quality...not very interesting -> http://youtube.com/watch?v=n2vGH7cUcvQ ]
I mean it can’t be a joke!lool I don’t know if he’s great or not at singing, but people say he is so much better as an actor...

Otherwise, yours pics are pretty good, I love the third one! It makes me feel better after lots of bad news concerning Yosuke! Arigato ne ;)

Concerning the trailer, I’m downloading it so I will tell you later if it works -_-‘!

I don’t feel confident in reading untill the end of the article (of imdb) cause I don’t want to be spoil! The film looks good, even if I’m not able to understand all it means (English sometimes gives me a hard time)
LOL, the autor calls him “Yosuke Kubosuko”, just destabilizing! (Also quite funny ^^)

Sorry for keep you waiting about the blog’s link... I just didn’t dare to share such a personal link on a public thread but I think it’s fine...Moreover you can find it very quickly just searching “Yosuke Kubozuka” on google...so --> http://ore-sama.bravejournal.com/

I didn’t see a lot about Yosuke, just GTO, IWGP, GO, and LLL...I’m in love with asami-sensei ^^ The story is quite strange but his character is very cute and gentle...After that I saw IWGP and Takashi made me laugh a lot...But I havn’t finished yet, I’m worried about the end (I’m not sure it’s gonna be an easy end for the G boys...) and I never read the book so I don’t know!
I’m waiting for Laundry that I’m currently downloading...I have good hopes about this one, for sure Teru is not an ordinary guy and that’s the roles Yosuke plays better.
And you? I presume you see much more than me...Could you tell me what’s your best memory?

I've watched some clips named Shonen H starring Yosuke Kubozuka. It's so great. But I don't know much about Shonen H.
So please help me to get some knowledge on both the movie and the novel of Shonen H.
Thank you so much.

it's SO hard to look for his movies with subs.. (or am i just looking at the wrong places?)

i first saw him in GTO.. and i thought he was kinda cute even with that arrogant attitude of his.
he was part of the reason why i decided to watch IWGP.. (besides YamaP being there). King totally reminded me of L of DN. LOL
of course there's LLL (with YamaP again)
and SOS is on my to-watch list..

i've watched his movie Go! and just haven't found time to watch Ping Pong, yet.

i want to watch his other movies~ i just can't find them. (someone help?)

btw, it's really a sad sad thing that he had to quit the movie industry.. well, reports say that he's as eccentric as the roles he play.. so no director and producer wants to work with him, despite his great talent.
and i hate his music (if you can call it music..).. he belong in fornt of the camera.. not behind a microphone.. really.

He'll be in "Ichi" - with a horrible hairstyle. ô0

Try this link ...^^

When his hair is back to normal I'll celebrate it ... :D

I also saw this movies and series and also
- Kyouki no Sakura
and
- Ping Pong

Ping Pong is really great, and Yosuke is also great in Kyouki no Sakura, but the rest of the film isn't that interesting ... if it wasn't Yosuke, the movie wouldn't be really interesting ...

The only drama I've seen him in was GTO but I liked him there. However, I read somewhere that he was having some issues and had to cut shooting for some dramas short... Anyone know anymore about this?

Kyoko, lol, I've only ever seen her in Yama Onna Kabe Onna and it really looks like she could only play one type of role. The cutesy girl role. Maybe I'll add IWGP to my list after i finish like the ten other dramas ive got downloaded but not watched :roll

ahha I saw someone post the clip with Shun in it. There were so many guys, I could hardly spot him and I'm not sure if that was him even...

I guess I gotta watch Ikebukuro west gate. I didn't know yosuke was in it ^^; Is he the main lead?

I first saw him in GTO and thought he was so cool ^^; He did a good job in Ping Pong too. But sadly haven't seen him in many projects :S ahh I also saw laundry...I didn't like that one so much. It was really weird...

I love Yosuke in IWGP ... he's great as King Takashi. ^^

But I never realized Shun ... guess I have to watch it once again.

I like this picture of Yosuke as Takashi:

I first saw him just recently when I watched IWGP and I really was blown away by his acting skills there. Since then I watched GO, SOS, Laundry, and Kyouki no Sakura. I will am currently looking for subbed Ping Pong and more of dramas / movies he acted in. I like Kubozuka. XD

*ahem*
LOL
it's been awhile sahansah..

i do agree that yosuke is a GREAT GREAT actor, too tho...

@ Lothiril
oh.. i saw recently in IMDB that he's gonna have a new movie.. and i was happy for him.
maybe he just stopped acting in doramas?




it's kinda sad, actually.. that his 'airtime' in IWGP SP is rather.. short.
but still cool, tho.


aww.. i wanna watch LLL or IWGP again.. i kinda miss this guy..

PS: i still can't find his other movies *sigh*

everybody seems to have watched laundry.. i can't find it anywhere.. LOL


wow.. so random.

Just go to IU forums. People have already uploaded the files to megaupload. All you need to do is downloaded and join wit HJsplit. easy. All his movies are up, I think.

Yousuke is marvelous both in looks and acting with his half heart-warming half heart-breaking smile.

Thanks for all the links. Are there still no signs of Amour-Legende on the web? The trailer was sooo intriguing.

My favorite actor! Just noticed theres a forum for him!

The role of "King" in IWGP was too good, and his performance in Go was amazing. I can't wait for his new movie, and its good to see that he's recovered from the balcony falling incident in 2004.

His movies are all out there, I have them. If you still can't find them, let me know and i'll help.

I miss this guy a lot! Why did he decide to go.. berserk? (Did he just fall from the balcony? Wasn't he trying to commit suicide?) He's a GREAT actor and nailed every role he played.. He was crazy in both GO! and Ping Pong.. I love Ping Pong more, though. PEKO!

Yeah, GO was indeed Romeo & Juliet, as it was not overly original anyways, but I still enjoyed it.

Does anyone have any news on Amour-legende/Song shu zi sha shi jian, and Shonen H/Otoko-neechan? I'm desperately looking for them, with or without subs.
Same goes for Ping Pong Bathstation/Takkyuu Onsen.
Would be great :wub:

As for him quitting: no, he did not quit. He still appears in movies, but he stopped appearing on TV and dramas because, as he said himself, the brainlessness and purely money- and quote-oriented TV world has let him down and he no longer wants to be par of it. As much as I will miss him in dramas, I understand, share and suppor his opinion.
