Kimura because who doesn't??
Shingo because he seems to be a nice and funny guy
Tsuyoshi hes actually pretty famous for doing commercails and such o and he can cook (^ ^)

Your halo is showing kinki... :cheers: great thread.

Just found this thread. Of course I have only been adoring Takuya for*******years. He is the only one who can melt my bones. I can't remember when I first became acquainted with him and SMAP. I guess it was SMAP as a group first and then I could not take my eyes off Kimura. Since then I have had to get a larger external Hard Drive and recently an even bigger Internal. ( Hope that is not a bad thing to say 8) ). It is true .. ..and my Pictures file is almost entirely of Kimura. I do like them all and appreciate the way they put a song across. Their loose way of dancing the same routine is very tricky but so effective. I have almost all of Kimuras dramas. Maybe a couple of the very early ones that are out of print are missing. The one that I love is Million Stars. also Sleeping Forest. For romantic perfection I choose Pride. I defy anyone to say Kimura is not a good actor if they watch the scene where Halu is saying good by to his mother at the station. Incredible acting sitting still in his car when he realises that she really came to borrow money. And..Aki had tried to keep it from him by giving her own savings. Oh what bitter heartbreak..and all conveyed with his eyes.

Engine was a total turnabout for Kimura and he was just right in that role and his rapport with the children was amazing. Only thing not right in that drama was the leading lady. No warmth and no response to Kimura but he made the best of it.
I love SxS and the Bistro and I try to find as many episodes as possible.
At the moment I would like to ask if it is possible to have some seeders for the 10 year programmes?? I have started the d/l to Ep.1 but doubt I can finish it .. Is it too late for seeders now? Keeping fingers crossed... :unsure:

I admire the way Kimura protects the privacy for his family. The media in some area try to do a hatchet job on him and shizuka. They will survive as they are both strong people. Kimura always said he wanted a woman who was 'soft and warm and loving' and that is what he found in Shizuka.
I should stop. I could go on and on about his talents and tenacity. He never gives up and he loves to win and he gives his very best.
I adore him.

re the seed for the 10 years of SMAP. someone has been so generous and is seeding. I have 6% but just checked and find there is no note of any 'peer' shouldn't there be at least one (for me)?? I am also not into the episode 2. Mystery??

Thanks to the seeder :D

Are you SERIOUS?! I thought ENGINE was the worst Kimutaku dorama since Beautiful Life. Yeah, his character was good with kids, but so what? It's just the character... His acting was average, and the story was so boring, and way too little racing. Although, the finale was very good, and touching, but watching ep 2~9 made me want to kill myself. I'm so glad I didn't sub that instead of Koi ni Ochitara :pale:
Well Koyuki (小雪) is literally 'Small flake of snow' in Japanese, so you can't expect warmth from her XD

Anyway, does anyone know when's the next Kimutaku dorama? It's been a year since ENGINE...

Isn't it nice that we can all have our opinions about actors and actresses.... :argue: ...
:D
Kimura has just finished the Samurai film which actually is the first film for ten years I believe. Now he is set to do a drama later this year. I don't know yet what it is called or what it is about.

8thSin..

Must just thank you for the translation of Koyuki's name. Very appropriate as far as I am concerned. I know she is a huge favourite with many people.

If you are into car racing then you would love an old film about the Formula racing at Monte Carlo. It was made a long time ago but I have seen it fairly recently on TV and it stands up well. The racing is authentic and powerful even when they superimpose the faces of the actors. Some real drivers in that movie.

I will look it up somewhere...Amazon..maybe. Let you know later.

Here you go 8thSin..

Really try this site..

http://www.putgrandprixondvd.com/


I had no idea there was such a howl going up for this film to be put on DVD. I would certainly buy just for the racing. The actors are good ,and as you will see, Toshiro Mifune was in it. Not a large part. Dramatic story.

Have fun with this site and others sites that talk about Monaco and Cannes Film Festival which goes along with that territory.

^ That's pretty cool. 7k+ for petition is pretty funny :lol

I just expected ENGINE to have more race scenes, you know... So many things were similar to the movie "Driven", yet there wasn't as much racing in 12 hours :unsure:

Anyway, I've heard about Kimutaku's new movie, but it wouldn't be accessible for us overseas audiences for at least a year... So was hoping for something sooner!

Wow! This site has been active recently! I have to agree with a lot of what you said, Peggy. Kimutaku really is a fine performer--he's riviting, if you will. I started watching A Sleeping Forest recently--it was recommended by a Japanese friend. It's so good, complex, character rich, and Kimutaku is fun to watch--he does a great job; his character, Naoki, is so intense and interesting!

It's amazing to me; SMAP is a force! They continue to win over new fans, both female and male, in Japan. Many of my high school students consider SMAP their favorite band, and some male students openly admit that they admire Kimutaku in particular; he is a model of both fashion and attitide.

But Kimutaku's hair! It looked great for a while, a return to darker brown. But it's been bleached again, that trendy 'tea-color' shade. It's not my favorite--I love it when it is a natural shade. And though I know some people like Shingo's bleach blond, I was hoping it would also go back to brown.

Know what you mean about hair colour. I do not like Shingo's bright yellow hair. I did not care for Nakai's bi-coloured hair a while back either. I think he is now back to dark hair and slightly longer. He is rather good looking when he calms things down.... 8)

It is hard for Kimura to be anything but good to look at. His hair is about the only thing he can change I think. You know they say that every woman gets a little itchy for a change at least once in her life with hair colour. ( It's true. :lol ) Well maybe it happens with the Japanese top group also......maybe.

I don't think anything happens by accident with Kimura. He is usually well rehearsed even when they all look disorganised. I notice that when he is in a drama he rarely has any NGs. However, he is definitely not a Method actor. He learns his lines and hits his marks and when the shoot is done he goes home. He never loses himself to 'become' the role. He just makes the role his own and makes it seem very easy. Almost the English way of doing things. Not the Actors Studio at all.

Many layers to the Sport Music Assembly People.....Is that it?... :scratch:... ..maybe

Would anyone comment on this problem..please.

I have been trying to d/l the SMAP 10 Year programme.... got the ep.1 file OK. Then when trying to get the rest, all sorts of strange things kept happening. First no seeders and then only one for the Ep.2... then no seeders and no peers. Then my PC went into a frenzy and lost everything.... got it back to working, but now I cannot login to the D-addicts Index at all. It just vanished on my favourites list. I have this Asian Index OK thank goodness but when I try to go to torrents and login they refuse my P/w which I have always used. Very strange. I really want that SMAP file so badly. I have been working with this for over a week and getting nowhere. Is it possible to get it on a Clubbox at all??
Thanks for any comments.

I have been watching and listening to the latest SMAP song..'Dear Woman'.
It's quite a catchy quick tune. At first I was not taken at all but after hearing it several times and seeing it with better and better background and colours it just grew on me. Has anyone else noticed that with the later SMAP songs they have to be heard more than once or twice. They aren't simple little ditties these days. I loved the early songs like 'Shake' and especially 'Summergate' and I loved 'Dynamite'. Now they are doing more intricate melodies it seems. Also they are sharpening up their dance routines again. It's all good... 8)

SMAP is also good for a chuckle. At times, the 10 year recaps really made me laugh, even though I don't understand Japanese. Somewhat resembles Saturday Night Live. The first special is definitively my favorite.

Okay, only a week ago (or was it less) I complained about Kimura's hair. I take it back! I saw him on Music Station (5/5), and he looked so good! He wore his hair down (it's so long again), and the color looked nice, too.

Hmm, I think you might be right, Peggy--their songs may be a little more intricate, though I can't think of any specific examples right now (I should just turn off the computer and go to bed). I loved "Dynamite," too--I love SMAP 011 as a whole. But to compare it to "Triangle" or "Dear Woman," it is fun and bouncy, but no use of harmony, really. I don't recall what show I was watching, but Nakai was interviewing Jon Bon Jovi; Bon Jovi commented that Nakai has shown some vocal improvement in the past couple of years. :| :P

What is this about a new Samurai film? Is it made-for-t.v. or will it be released at the theater? Very curious! Has anyone started watching Goro's new drama, by the way? I've downloaded the first episode, but I have yet to watch it. I prefer Goro as an actor rather than a singer--he appears more at ease when he is playing a part rather than singing and dancing on stage...I find him more appealing and accessible as an actor (if this makes any sense). He seems distant and removed when he is performing on stage. Just my opinion! :D

Hello everyone!
I'm a big Smap fan, let's say that in the last year Smap have become my favourite drug!
From my nick name you can understand that I'm a big big fan of Nakai, even if I started off with Takuya and I still consider him my first japanese idol!

Anyway my name is Silvia, I'm 19 and I'm italian! Ahaha I dare to say I'm the only italian smap fan since everyone say that Smap are old and like younger idols! I don't care, I'm not afraid to say that Smap is like fresh air to me and help me going through every day!

Yorocchiku!! :wub:

Hi everyone, I'm a big SMAP fan too *I loved them for around 3-4 years now..* my fanlife is short so I'm not really familar with the old smap as some other smap fans out there may be.

I started to be interested in the group cause of SMAPxSMAP. I still watch almost every single episode for around 2-3 years and I am not tired of it at all! SMAP just really brightens up the day, don't they?

And also, I am in love with their dramas! I am in LOVE with Kimura san's acting*he was my first jidol crush when I was small...I didn't even know he belonged in SMAP* and Kusanagi san's and Goro san's...all of them are absolutely talented in acting! I'm currently watching Goro san's drama and I am in LOVE with it! I saw every members drama, I just need to see Nakai san's :lol

But I used to be a bigg fan of Kimura san*I still am..well all of them are my favorites!* but now, Nakai san and Kusanagi san are my absolute favorites! They are funny. charming, great actors, and Nakai san's a great speaker!

And about the bushi no ichibun, it's going to be released in theaters in late 2006! I'm excited for it! Have to rent it 6 months later though><

And my post is getting long but talking about the songs, Nakai san HAS improved his voice but he's still...err..rough on the voice..not completly good....and the newer songs are really catchy and keeps you entertained for a while...I am soo not sick of Dear Women just yet! The lyrics are wonderful and the music is aboslutely perfect for it..and Triangle has a nice meaning too! Well, if anyone wants the translations for dear women if it's not too late, I'll attach it to this post! *Translations credits go to me cause I wrote it^^*

Well, yoroshiku onegaishimasu!

Thank you for the translation, Littleangel91356! I like "Dear Woman" even more now! Also, thanks for the "Bushi no Ichibun" update. Maybe I'll see it at the theaters--but no translation, sadly.

I llke the younger idols as well, but as you put it, SMAP is like a breath of fresh air. Their music is upbeat, they are fun to watch, and they are all are so appealing. That's one of the reasons I still like SMAP so much--each member has a distinctive personality, style. and talent. Even though Kimura is my favorite, a truly charismatic and talented man, I love Kusanagi for his gentle, earnest persona, Shingo for his humor and smile, Nakai for his showmanship and energy, and Goro for his mysterious calm (punctuated with quick wit). Of the younger groups, KAT-TUN stands out the most, in my opinion, because, like SMAP, each member is distinctive and memorable. And in Japan, though SMAP is one of the older idol groups, they are still very popular with people of all ages! :-)

I love the younger groups but SMAP is not that old yet! I still think they are not that old in personality, talent, and age. They can still go on and suceed! I think they are still young in their ways *But not as energetic as before but still, they still look full with energy in some way!* I love young groups too but SMAP has it's own speciality. They are absolutely splendid as performers and they still put on a good show and the shows that they put on are not old and tiring and still entertaining.

They always put a smile on my face and a good laugh! How many young groups can do it like how SMAP can? That's a question I would like to ask.

I love love love SHINGO!! He has great comic timing and is very nice to look at too! My second best member is definitely Nakai - such a cool presenter - I love Utaban! I do like Kimura (he's a great actor) but I just think Shingo & Nakai are the best!! Tsuyoshi & Goro are kinda equal to me...but I'm loving Goro's dorama at the moment so he's gaining points there!

I agree--SMAP certainly isn't old--nor are they 20-year-olds (nor am I :P ). But their experience makes them a polished group. Though, as others mentioned, their dance syle is loose, they make performing look effortless and fun. Kusanagi and Kimura, in particular, always look (to me), like they are really having fun while they are on stage. I guess that makes them true professionals--they do their job and make it look easy and entertaining. But I don't know how they have managed to maintain their busy lifestyles for so many years! I remember reading an article about Shingo (translated, of course) many years ago. He mentioned coming home from work at 8 at night, and realized he didn't know what to do with himself--he didn't know what people did when they got home from work! I can't imagine working so many hours, always being in the spotlight, continually doing one's best to entertain and make other people happy! Working from 8-5 as the resident foreigner at a Japanese high school is hard enough!

I agree, Littleangel91356, SMAP does make me laugh! I try to watch SMAP x SMAP when I can. Even though my Japanese is limited, I usually know what's going on, and their skits are so ridiculous at times, as are their competitions. I really hope they have fun during the taping of the show because it is fun to watch! That's why I've been a fan of the show for over 8 years!

As for "Busu no Hitomi ni Koishiteru," I think I'll watch the first two episodes tomorrow after work--I have a class of 40 16-year old boys tomorrow afternoon, so I'll need to unwind when I get home. I'll let you know what I think, pegsball!

pegsball!*high-five* heheh, I'm a Shingo-ichiban and Nakai-niban too^^ But my favorite pair in SMAP in ShinTaku, as the pic you attached there...heehee... I love their brotherly relationship. So cute! Shingo is scared and always obey everything Kimura said. While, Kimura support and spoiled Shingo the most. But there's also a time, when Shingo was upset/angry with Kimura...and Kimura apologize....they're just so sweet^^

SMAP is old? haha, I got that alot...I won't say they're old. They're just not young anymore...*LOL*

Anyway, among the recent singles come out, which one is minna-san's favorite??

1. Triangle
2. Bang! Bang!/Dear WOMAN
3. Tomodachi

1. Triangle
2. Tomodachi (another type like BESTFRIEND, ne^^)
3. Dear WOMAN
4. Bang! Bang! (such a BAKA song..haha....though I love the lyrics too, coz it's just SMAP-crazy)

PV-wise: Dear WOMAN!!!!!!!!!!
1. Dear WOMAN (I think I've watched it for 30 times already!!O_o)
2. Triangle (I'm touched and cracked up at the same time watching this!! Such a funny yet moving PV!)
3. Tomodachi/Bang! Bang!

4. Tomodachi e ~Say What You Will~ (Though I love this sung live!!)

2. Triangle (It just makes me laugh everytime I see it!!)
3. Bang! Bang! Vacance (Shingo & his teddybear!!)

My all time fave gotta be none other than Takuya! I got to know of his existance in yr 1999, when "Long Vacation" was screened in my home tv. It's been 7 years ever since, but I still like him the same =)

Seeing Takuya is a serious man in whatever he does, he becomes my role model & a motivational character as well...

He's simply amazing & his flaws make him perfect...

Takuya Rules!

I get to download every week's SMAPXSMAP through clubox, if anyone of you knows how to use clubox, here is the URL... =)

I love Smap as well, because their songs are inspirational!

Minna-san, this is a tribute video I made dedicated to SMAP's 18 Years Journey, in the occasion of their 18th year anniversary since they were FORMED in April 1988 (NOT debut).

I made this video, actually....especially to those who are not really a fan, but have, at least, a bit interest in SMAP or in one/some of the members, so you'll get to know more important points of SMAP.

I created the video since April this year, but I only had the chance to share it with minna, now xD

The duration is 47 minutes. This is not really a music video like I used to make, but it's more of a compilation of clips(funny talks and happenings) of SMAP....but instead of just lump it all together, I edit it and try to make it look more nice and flows...I also inserted a music video of SMAP's brotherhood image in the end of the video^^

You might find how I focused more on Inagaki Goro here. Well, he's one of the biggest reason, why SMAP is getting stronger even 'till now. The incident he had in 2001, made them realized and made them think alot of what SMAP and each member of the group means to them. So, an introduction of how they cannot stand Goro, but later realized how important Goro is, to them...is necessary ^_^ Goro's 2001 incident gave a quite big impact for SMAP's tightened bond.

Yanie - very nice work on creating the 18 Years Journey tribute to SMAP. :salut: I'm surprised at all the older clips you have and their good quality. I'm sure you spent a lot of time putting this together. Thanks for sharing it with us! :D

10 years

Post by Peggy » Aug 18th, '06, 01:50

For a variety of reasons I was never able to complete the files for the 10-year celebration.

I got all of Part 1 but not so lucky with the rest....

Part 2 only 32%

Part 3 only 89%

Part 4 only 33%

Part 5 only 12%

If anyone at any time can seed any of these I would be so grateful. Perahps you could PM me to give me the alert. I don't often get to this part of d-addicts.
I am also hoping that the samurai film will have English subs eventually. Surely it will come to DVD. It is going to be really good. Kimura san with a great director and a dramatic story.

Ja ne.........Peggy :D

Kimura Western Trip

Post by Peggy » Aug 18th, '06, 01:59

While I am here and remember this....There was a trip that Kimura made to the southwest states in US some years back. I think he was about 22 or 23 years old. I know all the areas that he visited.. so it was very enjoyable to watch. He was finally made a member of the Apache tribe. all very authentic, and made a huge imression on Kimura. I think it made him a deeper thinking and finer man.

Anyway this was put on the SMAP show and then afterwards it was uploaded somewhere. I have never been able to complete that series of files. It was done with HJSPLIT and altho I know how to join them, it doesn't work if you don't have all the files.

Does anyone know where these may still be available? Don't remember seeing this on d-addicts but I could be wrong. Just need about two files.

Hope someone saw this because it was a marvellous trip he made.

10 YEARS CHEMISTRY OF KIMURA TAKUYA & MATSU TAKAKO TRIBUTE VIDEOS!!

[img]http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v203/ ... atsu01.jpg[/img]

[img]http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v203/ ... atsu02.jpg[/img][img]http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v203/ ... atsu03.jpg[/img]

I've compiled ALL interactions ever exists and I can ever find, between Kimura Takuya and Matsu Takako that shows their strong chemistry in DORAMA and VARIETY shows.

[img]http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v203/ ... atsu04.jpg[/img][img]http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v203/ ... atsu05.jpg[/img]

I made this, for those, who don't see what's so good and why this combi is a Legendary TV Couple in Japan, and so you can understand what's all the fuss is about, after you see these videos ^_^

[img]http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v203/ ... atsu06.jpg[/img][img]http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v203/ ... atsu07.jpg[/img]

You will see how Kimura and Matsu gets along very well in real-life. How Kimura is well-acquainted with her father and older brother. How SMAP members teased her with Kimura endlessly, before or even after he got married. To the point, I think they should be in the Guiness Book of Record as The Most -So Close, Yet So Far- Couple! LOL!

Peggy - I've been inspired by your post and the SMAP in Paris episode uploaded by pegsball. I have the Kimura Cowboy episode from SMAP and will upload it in the next day or so. (It's not the split file version, however.)

Yanie - thanks for more videos!

Kimura in the West.

Post by Peggy » Aug 18th, '06, 19:39

Hi Phoenix,

I shall be delighted to get that file :cheers: . Sometimes it seems that the SMAP files are not in existence any more and then when they do appear I am totally unable to d/l them
Even now I can only d/l and open for view the first file from yanie. Is it me or is it the PC. Are those 10/18 year files in HJSplit???? this has happened to me on la creme d'asie and the files are removed or out of date before I can get to them. It frustrates me.... Not easy being a SMAP/Kimura person.......

Shall wait for your file... and thanks. :D

Peggy - I was able to get all the 18 Years Journey files off the SendSpace links. Often, though, you have to attempt to download a file several times, and wait a minute between attempts, until there is a download slot available.

After getting all 6 files, use HJSplit, choosing the Join option. Browse to the 001 file and HJSplit will find the other similarly named files (002 - 006). It will then join all the files together to create the one longer file. That file will be a mpg file. PM me if you have any problems. :-)

Oh yes, I'm a Smap lover! I learned about Smap from watching Shingo in Shinsengumi and I was totally hooked from then on! :wub: I watch SXS and anything I can get my hands on as much as possible and listen to them at least once a day :lol !

But I must say, I really like all of Smap very much. They make laugh so much. I love how Takuya is so protective about Shingo and how cute and shy Nakai is around women. And then Goro! Or the most beautiful Goro and he knows it. And then how sweet and mild and calming Tsuyopon is all the time. Shingo makes me smile regardless of what he's doing. Even when he's serious, it brings joy to my heart. Am I an addict? :mrgreen:

Peggy, can you be more specific which links/files are removed or out of date? Coz, I've checked the sendspace and YSI links of the SMAP 18 Years video, randomly. And, the files are still active/available for download.

You're welcome, it's really my pleasure also. I had fun making it. And well....it would be no use of making it, if I don't share it with fellow Smappies, right??^_^ I want as many Smappies as it can, to see this video...hehe...

Hi yanie,

Must reply before popping off to bed. Late here in my neck of the woods. The files you have loaded for us (18years)... I am d/l now. All OK :D

the files that eluded me were the ones of Kimura's trip to Arizona and Colorado . I got the first file OK and it was really beautiful. However when I tried to get the rest I was unable to finsih the complete set... therefore could only watch the first one... could not join them without all the files. It then was out of date, and I had been searching for them for several months. With luck and phoenix's help I am keeping fingers crossed now because this shoudl be a lovely adventure that Kimura took when he was about 22 years old. His hair was very long and when it was tied back he had the look of an Indian and being admitted into the Apache tribe seemed perfect. The Chief named him 'Little Man' and said now you are really a man. I think it was quite an important event for Kimura even tho it was obviously a planned trip to do with SMAP.

Eyes closing. :blink so goodnight and many thanks for all the generous SMAP people.

@yanie : Wow!!! Thanks banget Yanie, buat “karya” nya!
SMAP should be proud of such a dedicated fan like you! (Btw. you were only 4 years old back then as SMAP started their works. Respect !! :salut: )

Well. I am not a real smappy, but I just want to share also with others where you can get SMAP stuffs in clubbox(es) ( don’t know actually where I should post it, here or at cb-thread … but they are SMAP stuffs, so I think here is the right thread ..isn’t it?)

- http://clubbox.co.kr/katori405 : silver cb, but has new smap stuffs of the week (sometimes faster than roaceica’s :whistling: )

- http://clubbox.co.kr/intakuya : gold one, need PW
I’ve dl these for example :
Oda Nobunaga (http://jdorama.com/drama.512.htm ; Kimura’s tv SP 01.01.1998)(with smi sub …. but korean …. :crazy: )
http://down.clubbox.co.kr/intakuya/ae7n ... e7n1_de7n1
SxS 2004/06/21-Skit guest Tobey Macguire :
http://down.clubbox.co.kr/intakuya/xunn1
etc

- http://clubbox.co.kr/RyuStyle : gold, need PW
SxS 1998/3/30- Bistro smap in LA, the guest is Whoopi Goldberg
http://down.clubbox.co.kr/RyuStyLe/wvs22_uvs22
SxS 1996/10/21-Skit guest Jackie Chan
http://down.clubbox.co.kr/RyuStyLe/q5912
etc.
ah also this one (what phoenix just ul-ing)
SxS 1997/3/17-Kimura's cowboy experience
http://down.clubbox.co.kr/RyuStyLe/2rd36

But sometimes you’ve got to be patient till you can dl them, coz they’re not “up to date” anymore …

So … good night folks and have a blessed Sunday!!!

these CBs all need Passwords. I don't know how this is accomplished because it seems you cannot just put in name and choose your own P/W. ??


How to do this??

Hi Peggy!

First you have to have a cb account (to get your cb’s ID&PW).
Second, go to their main page (like http://clubbox.co.kr/intakuya or http://clubbox.co.kr/RyuStyLe ) then be a member of those clubboxes using your ID&PW.
Sorry, the URL I’ve given above were file downloading URL

I’m not good in explaining ‘tech’ things, but you can just follow the instruction from this thread : http://www.d-addicts.com/forum/viewtopic_24509.htm.
Clubbox still a mystery for me, since I can not read Korean. Sometimes I just closed my eyes and click the button. He he he …

So,
“Good Luck !!”

Chuusingura 1-47

Post by Peggy » Sep 2nd, '06, 03:16

Is there a chance that someone could upload the drama/film that Kimura made in 2002...called 'Chuusingura 1-47' It is just a short film and is about the story of the 47 ronin who avenged their leaders death. I have a copy without Eng. subs...but I know there was one on d-addicts with Eng. subs. I would love to have this copy if someone knows anything about this.

My fav SMAP ever is Kimuchan, but I really like every othr SMAP member, a part from Tsuyoshi which is somehow strange to me, his looks I mean.
I think Shingo is very cute and funny, especially as Shingo Mama! Goro is hot(but not as Takuya!!!

hai..ja..photo time ^__^
i dunno why not many people like Tsuyoshi-kun! he's a very good actor, apart from his look! but come on, he's very popular in Japan, this just mean that look doesnt matter when talent is there!! :-)

Kana-panic*ch do you watch SMAPXSMAP? if not, then watch it. im sure you will change your opinion about Tsuyoshi-kun a little bit if not completely!

cheers!!
I totally dig Tsuyoshi... He is actually the one who made me fall in love with SMAP, cuz i first saw his drama about the guy with 'a stomach as big as the universe'. The Chinese title is "Da Wei Wang" but i'm not sure if it's even around anymore... I miss all the variety shows and stuff that I didn't get to see, since I didn't noe about them until quite late. I think Takuya is very very appealing, *he makes me go AHHH all the time when he dances*, but Tsuyoshi's face is the one that stood out and stuck in my mind. Maybe it's just that I'm a quiet person, and got attracted to the humble image that Tsuyoshi has... I would really love it if I could get the chance to speak to him man... But I don't speak Japanese well at all!! *BUAH* ~Bawls~

For those who have gotten the files, please upload them often again if you can, because the links often have 0 ULs and 4 DLs. I would do my best to upload SMAP stuff too, along with other stuff I have. :)

Thank you so much for seeding 'Chuusingura'. I have it downloaded now.

You will not believe this... I think I am fated not to ever get the English subbed drama at any time.

I have the drama finished....but I can't find it anywhere in my PC. Usually I d/l directly to 'Documents'. ... Since the power outage and the re-installation of Windows by a technical wizard..everything has a mind of it's own. Things don't go into Docs. anymore. they appear on Desktop....that is when they appear.

I am going to leave my PC going until I can get the 'wizard' to come back and re-set the way my PC was before. Can't burn anything because Nero has vanished....

Anyway thank you again (Phoenix I think...) :salut: :D

Hey, I like TOKIO better! Just joking. SMAP are the institution. They've been around so long and are still popular.

Title: ShinGoro Part II ~Kirai demo, Suki!~
Link: http://www.sendspace.com/file/dszqpu
Size: 238 MB
Duration: 29 mins 6 secs
Subtitle: English

Description:
This is ShinGoro 19 Years Documentary fanvid with English-subs, divided to 2 parts, each abt 30-mins. I finished both just in time between Goro and Shingo's birthday months!^^
Tells the long journey of how ShinGoro first met when they were still babies(teens, I mean^^), how Shingo hated Goro alot...and we may understand why Shingo used to dislike Goro, and they can't get along, then how their bond begun on the Hokkaido Ice batsu in 1999, up to the times Shingo realized Goro's good sides and how he learn, came to love Goro as much as he love the other members. But even when he already starting to like Goro now, he sometimes still hate him...haha!

Maybe, I am the only person who sees this. But ShinGoro's bond is really beautiful in my eyes. At a glimpse, you may not realized that they have a bond, at all. But they do. And to me, they have a VERY, VERY GOOD on-screen chemistry.

So I just wanted to share what I see on ShinGoro, with all of you, minna!^^

Thanks alot, alot to Asycas@ChannelSmap who uploaded the files!!!^v^

Unlike most other currently active Johnny's groups, they don't have to rely on dance alone to make their live perf good :whistling:

ok, i will start then.

my favorite member is Kimura Takuya, he's sexy, Fantastic actor, has a super magnetic eyes, and no one can deny his charisma!

i like Shingo, when he imitate famous ppl and when he crack jokes on the other members!
i like Goro's kind eys, also he has a nice, sweet low pitch voice. i like his segment host club with kimutaku in SMAPXSMAP!
Tsuyoshi is soo funny, i like his segments in SMAPXSMAP, specially when he imitates geeks or sarariman (salaryman)
Nakai, i like him more in Utaban. he's not the best singer but he's funny when he talks with the guest in bestro smap!
hello
shingo katori is my favorite smap member. i love it when he imitates ppl on "smap bistro"
and plays "Ikko no makeup" on a female celebrity. the rest of the group are funny in their own special way. now about kimura.....i have a new nickname for him "6" because when move his eyes(very impressive)left or right, they look like a pair of sixes. I'm not a fan but i watch is dramas...i'm watching "the grand family" on channel 18 saturday night is very intrigueing. i would go to the japanese videostore and rent their shows. i've been a fan since 2005. i have their concert dvd's from 2005 and 2006. i have their single and their cd's Sexy Men Are Precious :-D
