which super celebrity senpai are you unintentionally attracted to?

Yamamoto Yuusuke stars in the drama Ouran Host Club with a super gorgeous senpai role. Which super celebrity senpai are you unintentionally attracted to?

...Is what the blog thing says, but kaycry is more saddened that Goo wants to be all mayor of Tokyo and is deleting all the actually remotely interesting 3-Day Ranking Polls. (Fact: 3-Day Ranking Polls are more interesting than regular polls, perhaps because they're user created or perhaps because there is a bunch of horny fangirls running around. Like "Which artist has the most annoying fanbase?" "Artist most likely to have STDS?" I mean, just yesterday I saw a poll that says "What Johnny looks like he sleeps around alot?" Srsly. And guess who was winning? Sexual Powerhouse. Srsly.)  Now its just full of what tea shop do you like in Tokyo and favorite movie. guurl no1currr. not that anyone cares about the aforementioned 

In other words your stuck with this docomo ranking bros.
Btw, celebrity here can be said to mean somewhere with gorgeous, elegant, eyecatching, etc.

So I'm just gonna leave this here.
Let ya'll dwell on it.

Seoul Drama Awards 2011: Most Popular J-Actor & Actress

I was waiting for a japanese news site to post this.. but there aren't any. I must be looking at the wrong sources.

Kamiki Ryunosuke and Ashida Mana won the "Most Popular Actor" for the 2011 Seoul Drama Awards opening last Aug 31st. The results were taken from Yahoo! Korea's online popularity poll.  Both of them will be given the "Netizen Favorite" Award.

Mana wasn't in Seoul to accept her award though but HERE's a vid of Kamiki accepting his.
I won't be embedding since it might get deleted.

Thank you to miss_lonliah for the clearer pictures and names of the nominees.
Someone give these two a project together... they'd be the cutest older brother- younger sister tandem. XD
Looks like a lot of the voters saw Kokoro no Ito (since there's 3 of them in that poll).

After having showcased a more mature sound their past few singles Hey!Say!JUMP is back where they started with a cute sound that almost  brings back the innocence they lost not too long ago. The song Magic Power will be used for the upcoming SMURF movie in which members Chinen Yuri and Yamada Ryosuke are casted as voice actors.

In a setting that reminds us of the fifties/sixties a lot, the members are preforming their newest song. In the PV preview the members of JUMP are wearing the same set of very bright, colorful clothes as the ones they wear on the regular edition cover of their single. 

The single will officially be released on September 21.

For some reason this PV just screams (as far as we can see now) Kanjani8 to me. Might be the band setting, might be the colorful clothes. All I can say is that I really like it and I'm finally getting excited for this release.
