why was it a "dirty" weekend trip to Hawaii? Because she was pouring suntan lotion over her lover's back?

and if I remember correctly, Oshio Manabu quit acting? That could be a reason why none of this affects him.....meanwhile it harms Yada. Japanese entertainers really have it hard, I mean it's not like she's a teenager who has to stay pure and chaste for her audience.

I just read the entire article. I guess she was at the wrong place at the wrong time. She should have waited until the commercial shoot was over before that since they were looking for a "pristine" ladylike image. but is it so wrong to have fun?

The only thing I have against their relationship is that Oshio admits that he's a heartbreaker himself. I forgot where I read that from, but that just stuck with me since I googled him after watching "Love Revolution".

Hiroki Konishi is tres hot!! :heart:

its rare that any "relationship" in japan concerning celebtrities is every looked at in a positive light. I remember when kimutaku got married (i was in japan at the time), the backlash wasnt negative, but it was negative. (It wasnt supposed to be, they werent writing stories about it being bad, but they were definitely accentuating the negative.) i remember when okamura had the date with the bikini model (i forget her name) it was just him having a date with a pretty girl. It was like OH MY GOD HES DATING SOMEONE WHAT WILL THE REST OF THE CAST THINK? OH MY GOD!!!!!!!!!

basically i agree the coverage here was unfair but im not surprised unfortunately.

Maybe she should dump him now and get it over with, I'm a tame boy, i'll take her :whistling: :wub: :mrgreen:

Akiko will overcome all this crap - you just wait and see. If she doesn't, that'll just add one more item to my lengthy list of things I hate about the geinokai, and how unloyal the Japanese fans are. For her to go down for something as stupid as this, while they praise pedophiles like Michael Jackson, there doesn't seem to be any consistency in the whole thing. :scratch:

Yup, I have no worries for her too.
As time goes by, I think she will come back to rise.

this has been brewing for months now, but whatever...
unless she gets sick of things and quits herself, this won't break her career...

Did she really stop her career?
Also, can someone tell me what happened? I don't see anything under the initial link posted.

Also, she's in a drama coming up - Voice


A relatively minor role, but she's in it

The highlights:

- Yada Akiko had the good, clean girl image.
- Tattoos are taboo in Japan, since tattoos are somewhat linked to organized crime (yakuza, etc.)
- Good girl plus tattoo'd man = BAD! Akiko was caught in Hawaii applying sun tan lotion on Oshio Manabu - a co-star in a previous drama, and her boyfriend at the time. I believe the tattoo is on his back, right above the waist line.
- Akiko's reputation as a good girl is gone. Loses contract with AFLAC, among other things.

I think Akiko took some time off from the geinokai, to allow for the story to disappear from the media, and with the intent of re-entering the geinokai. Even though everyone still knows the whole story today, the story not being in the tabloids every day helps. She'll be back, but I think her status among drama fans will never be the same.

Glad I came across this discussion. Was reviewing older shows like My Little Chef and wondered what had happened to her. I'll look up Voice.
