Nobel prize winner praises Arashi’s Sho Sakurai

Arashi’s Sho Sakurai (28) traveled to Moscow to meet a former head of state and to the Berlin wall as part of his special report for Nippon TV’s 24Hr TV, reports Sports Hochi.

Sakurai’s special, titled “嵐・櫻井翔が緊急リポート! 世界の貧困と格差社会の現実~マンホールで暮らす人々とは~ (Arashi -  Sho Sakurai’s Breaking News!  The reality of global poverty and social disparity ~people who live in manholes~ )” sent him to Moscow to interview Nobel Peace Prize winning former head of state Mikhail Gorbachev (79).

Mr Gorbachev is widely known as the man whose actions lead to the end of the Cold War around the late 1980s, early 1990s.  After Mr Gorbachev heard Sakurai had been interviewing a wide range of people in different places for his “NEWS ZERO” series “世界平和への祈り (Sekai Heiwa heno Inori, A Prayer for World Peace)” over the past year, the nobel prize winner applauded Sakurai for his efforts.

“I am very happy to meet a responsible person like you.

“I hope more and more people will be able to think not only about themselves, but also about the suffering the people around them are going through, and want to help them,” he said.

After Sakurai had introduced himself in Russian, Mr Gorbachev pushed aside Sakurai’s prepared notes.

“I want to hear about your opinions,” he told a confused Sakurai.

The interview went on for more than 30 minutes, during which the two talked about poverty, economic instability, and peace operations.

It has been reported Sakurai was still shaking after his interview.

“It was an incredible priviledge to have met a person I watched on the news as a young boy,” he said.

His latest adventure had sent him reporting from Moscow to the Berlin wall, and to Romania.

“It’s been 20 years since the Cold War ended.   How has the world changed.  I hope I can make people in Japan think about how one person’s situation can affect others,” he said.

“嵐・櫻井翔が緊急リポート! 世界の貧困と格差社会の現実~マンホールで暮らす人々とは~ (Arashi -  Sho Sakurai’s Breaking News!  The reality of global poverty and social disparity ~people who live in manholes~ )” will air on “24時間テレビ33「愛は地球を救う」(24Hr TV 33 ‘Love Saves the Earth’)” on August 29 in Japan.


I find this uber cool.

I'm so proud of Sho! It's good, to see him serious from time to time.
They make him look far too ridiculous in Arashi's shows! I don't like this! -.-''

I hope, somebody will sub this video!

but it seems that he's enjoying his time! It's not like they're forcing him to make crazy expressions or to FAIL! xD

Are you sure, because I'm not!
Sometimes it looks forced to me...but whatever.

Nobody is serious all the time. Arashi members have said so many times how silly and comical he is backstage. He's allowed to be serious and silly when he wants to be, nobody is forcing him.

Well, I'm sorry...but his "failing" looks fake to me from time to time.

Please let me have my opinion.
I also don't have a problem with yours!

he is the one who make his own failures fake or not. i understand its your opinion and i'm not against it but "they" didn't make him look like a failboat. its all Sho's choice in the end.
a_cheshire_grin 23rd-Aug-2010 01:18 pm (UTC)
And you know that, because Sho told you?!

Don't get me wrong, I respect your opinion, but I personally don't believe that some of his "fails" aren't scripted by "them"(like in "Mannequin 5" or other challenges!) just to amuse the fans.

In the end, it's useless to discuss this, because we will never know!!
