This is so much better than any other boyband dance routine that I’ve ever watched (=∀=);

Honto ni, honto ni.

*coughs* Johnny K *coughs* *chokes*…

Here is the new UNO Fog Bar CM!

No more field trips to London, no more The Beatles-esque costumes, no more di-gue-ding-dings, but still, it’s <333333333 to the absolute MAX.

I want to say though, Buki, you can grow all the facial hair you want but you can not conceal that babyface!

And, ARGH(!), (semi)Breaking News(!!) Shunny-kunny-kun-kun-kun… when the crap did you get married? I thought you were the more “attainable” one..! TTT___TTT

But now… *looks at Fog Bar boys’ relationship statuses* … this is how it is..?


LOL. Just joking (also, gomensai, couldn’t help myself with the graphics^^;) I KNOW WHO IS STILL ON THE MARKET ( *locks Sato kun away in Neverland dungeon* *cues Rudolph The Red Nose Reindeer tune* ♫ ♪ ♫ ♩ ♬ “Noona, dear, is coming to town..!” ♫ ♪ ♩ MUAHAHAHAHA xDDDDDD) 

Anyways, please watch the making of  the CM. It’s possibly more enjoyable than the actual CM itself:

*dies@the 17sec mark* (Can the boy get any cuter???)

I want to work for Shiseido Japan.

When you click onto the Shiseido UNO facebook fan page, this is the image that fills your computer screen… >>>


…I seriously think I almost died (and by now I have no shame >_>;) The poster is so metrosexually delicious that as a squeeling fangirl woman, I want to purchase this men’s UNO Skincare Tank range. For myself (you never know, maybe I’ll become as pretty as them.) Like, look into each of their eyes (one at a time~~) and just feel what they are trying to say to YOU. Just feeeeel.

*closes eyes* *soul wonders off into nether universe* *drooling*


Baby Miura: Noona, I know I am younger but that doesn’t mean I am inexperienced. I’m a man. You’re a woman. Please believe me, I know how to use my UNO products.

Eita san: I will not let anything stand in our way— no matter the size, no matter the texture, no matter how long it lasts, no matter the amount of hair… nothing. Nothing will stop us from having UNOfabulous hair together.

Shuny kun: Oh baybay. I can see it in your face. Let’s do it. You want me. You want me to do it right now. Here, let me show you how to use these UNO products.

Buki: Oh doozy san, this is my first time. Please lead the way… show me how to use these UNO products? Onegaishimasu ? (Shout out to doozygomen, couldn’t help but entwining you into this^^)


*soul returns to body* *opens eyes (to reality)*

Ah, there may be a chance I’ve misinterpreted their feelings but you know, sometimes the hormones get a little, ahem, foggy (feel free btw to share what you guys sense the boys are really trying to say.)

New CMs and another appearance on Oshareism would be more than ideal. In the meantime, a big thank you to Ellély for feeding me the news on these four boys’ latest fogtastic adventures in the first place ;) And I shall leave you with a few more piccies from the Shiseido Japan website (click for full size image. Last pic actually taken from non-stop crusade‘s tumblr. I want to say also the  boys all have nice ankles. Domo, domo.)

Greetings! And…

^_^ Just wanted to do a quick post (using one of my favourite pictures of 2010) and send everyone my best regards for a super year ahead. May the dorama world be bigger and better than ever, may all your goals and dreams come to fruition and may everyone have a good hair day every day xDDDDDD As doozy put it, let us all have a ShuShuing New Year!! *raises Fog Bar spray*


Oh, & by the way, you know how in my previous post I was begging requesting piccies of other specific Santa boys? Well well well… I accidentally (lol yeah , sure, as if >U<;) found this >>>


^Seriously, this puts a whole different spin on the “I wanna sit on Santa’s lap!!!” scenario for me… er, no freaking way I just said that  ><;;;;;; *punches self in face*

*clears throat* Caption at your own pleasure (-_-;!)


One last “Oh & by the way” *flashes pearlers*- I was doing my standard surf around Dramabeans and…


I think I submitted this banner of Bi and Lee Na Young about one month ago (amongst a few others) and honestly thought I’d completely flunked it~~; (which wouldn’t be too shocking since there is so much talent happening over there^^) …but ’twas a nice surprise indeed seeing it fronting their page :))


Anyways, Happy HAPPY 2011! <3

Those Fog Bar boys on Oshareism again

15 10 2010

[[[ Related post: I still heart my Fog Bar <<<—Last year’s show^^ ]]]

Man, I have a wish. I wish for new Uno Fog Bar CMs every year. That way we can make this show an annual event. Maybe we could even turn it into a(n) (inter?)national holiday!


(photo credit: maisakura @sina china as labelled)

Tsumabuki Satoshi, Oguri Shun, Eita, Miura Haruma & Miyazaki Aoi on Oshareism 10/10/10 (what a ten outta ten date! haha):

>>> Watch it here ^_^ <<<

[ As usual, I need to make my own commentary so this time, look out for indigo bold italics~~! ]


※ The boys walk on stage with Tsumabuki Satoshi & Eita intentionally switching places because Eita wants to avoid Ueda-san [ The poor thing must’ve been scarred from his drilling one year ago! Oh the good times *fond tear* ] But as soon as go to sit down, they revert back^^ [ Under strict marketing directions from Shiseido? >_> Btw, Eita’s “Shu” in the beginning is already too much… xD ]

※ First topic of conversation is drinking. They note that Miura is now the legal age [ did you hear that??????? *rests  chin in between thumb & index finger & cackles* *pounds down straight shot of tequila* ] Before they shot the latest Uno Fog Bar CMs, Shun, Eita & Miura went out to have a few drinks together in London (Satoshi couldn’t come as something came up.) [ No wonder the CMs ended up so cracktasically hilarious lol Just joking ;O But for some reason I’m wanting to see them pull one of those lame contests to see who can get the most phone numbers in one night lol My bet? Satoshi, if he was there ;P Otherwise, my money would be on… Miura for some reason. And I don’t think he would even need to try (´ε` ) ]

※ We already know Shun turns into an emotional mess when he’s drunk but what about Eita? According to Shun, our frizzy hair master morphs into a super manly passionate, er, man when he’s downed one too many. One time when Eita was drunk, he said to Shun, “Listen, no matter what, I will always look out for you!!!!!!” The audience is like, aaawww. [ *buries head in pillow* *wails* This makes me feel so gooey inside! I know I’ve said this before but I mean it more than ever- someone fuureaking moosh these two in a dorama right now!!!!!! I am willing to give up my… Buzzer Beat DVD lololol ]

※ Apparently Satoshi drank so much once he passed out at Shun‘s place. Shun then took a secret photo of Satoshi & later sent it to him [ I must say Shun is quite noble~~ If Buki was unconscious in my house, I wouldn’t be simply taking photos that’s for sure. But I’d imagine I wouldn’t be doing anything to him that doozy would be doing either tehe ]

※ Then begins the personality tests, where the boys are probed with three questions. This time, Ueda-san joins in on the action ^_^

1. Imagine there is an old shrine deep in the mountains, and a monkey is trapped in a cage there.  Draw the facial expression of the monkey.
Meaning: This what you they’ll look like when they are older. [ lol @ Shun’s eyeless primate attempt. It looks more like a frggn lion^^; Satoshi, forever the kawaii babyface xDD LMAO @ Eita’s sketch & how the hosts keep asking him if he’s gonna be okay when he gets older if he’s going to turn out like that. But hey, at least he still has the big ears xD Shun’s laughter at Eita’s sketch is also funny as heck. And Ueda-san’s angry vampire monkey is ROFLtastic xD ]

2. You are looking for a flower, and you find the flower you were looking for at the florist, what would you say to the flower?
Their answers-
Miura: I’ve finally found you.
Satoshi: We’ve finally met each other.
Shun: It’s here.
Eita: Looks as great as I thought.

Meaning: This is what they say to pick up a woman. [ Bravo boys! Bravo! That’s what we wanted to hear! *tears stream from corners of eyes* (Except, well, Shun you may wanna work on your line a bit. Lucky you’re hawt *giant hug*) I love how the entire audience is female btw. Some of their reactions almost put me to shame lol (what’s that saying about the stove & the kettle & something about being black? xPP) ]

I’ll confess, Miura’s one-liner got my eyes glistening the most… I think how he so bashfully half-hid his face behind the writing pad as he was speaking the words made it just the more, er, likeable *throws a sisterly hug* ]

3. Your favorite food is on the table, when you look at the food, what is your facial expression?
Meaning: This is the face they show only to the one they love. [ *grins like a mad woman* Shun, you had me at THAT look *melts into one humungous gloop* Ahem. Miura’s two-hand fist pump in the air thing made me giggle. I’d cook you dins anyday sweetiepie *slaps self in face* lol@ Satoshi not being able to keep a straight face. And Eita’s? ROFL 1 million & 28 times. Gold *bangs fist repeatedly on desk* ^^;;;;;;;; LMAO @ Shun looking like he was trying not to burst into hysterics… ]

Miyazaki Aoi [ can’t help but like this girl^^ ] then joins the party & talks about working with the guys. She noted that she had worked together with Satoshi, Shun & Eita before [ well, well, wasn’t someone good in their past life? xD ] so she felt perfectly comfortable, however this was the first time she & Miura had worked together. Aoi & Shun gave known each other since their high-school years.

Aoi-chan’s nickname for Satoshi is Tsumao, & for Shun, it’s Guri.

Satoshi likes to run, 5-6kms everyday [ *hand-to-head salute* Way to go! That is amazing *drops to floor* I personally couldn’t even slow-dance that distance lol ]

Shun now has a  love for Lego, thanks to Eita who introduced it to him [ Seriously Shun, love you, but have you been living under a rock? ] He assembled the ship in one night [ Alright Shun, you, me, at the bow of the ship at 3 *puts on English accent* “I’m flying Shuuun! I’m flying!” *leaps into Atlantic & smashes head on giant iceberg* -_-; ]

Shun shows a picture of his All Night Nippon (his radio show) magazine & Ueda-san points out on the cover it says there is a section for Over-18s & questions why [ uh-oh…… ] Shun replies it’s because they talk alot of ecchi late at night[ Oh snap. For once I have nothing to say (*_   _*) ]

Shun also showed a photo of his Gantz manga collection. Apparently recommended to him by Miura. [ I’m beginning to think that these boys are terrible influences on each other… drinking to the point of intoxication, manga, video games, excessive fashion & toys accumulation… no! No! No! Muahaha of course I’m joking. Please let me play ;O ]

Eita brought in another photo of the infamous 99yen toilet brush, one year later, still exactly the same, unused. [ Gaaah!!! Eita-kun, please, let me be your housemaid!!!!! I’ll show you how to use that toilet brush properly xDD ]

※ Lastly, we had the palm reading rounds. This is what I can make of it-
Miura‘s career luck is very good. But something about being spoilt & being a baby was mentioned. [ Aaw, cut the baby some slack! He’s only 20, he’s fully allowed to… do that 53:42 tongue-in-cheek thing~~ ]
Satoshi has very strong luck overall.
Shun‘s currently at a challenge with his work but has incredible popularity.
Eita has two destiny lines which spells out to having twice the good luck!

Btw, LMAOX100 @ Eita’s card shuffle fail at the end xDD

Another brilliant barrel of laughs! Seems like these four enjoy each other’s company as much as we enjoy theirs~~ That’s for shu! xP

I rate this scene: Orange Days [episode 07]

2 09 2010

So you may or may not have noticed that I’ve been a little, er, fogged up lately. And I probably didn’t give Tsumabuki Satoshi as much love in my posts as I did w/ the others *clears throat* but you need to believe me, I do think alot of him. It’s not just because he’s good-looking (although his eternally charming boyish good looks certainly works wonders *pokes fingers into dimples* xD)- I truly think v. highly of his acting. Which brings me to this– just how freaking drooltastic was he in Orange Days (!)

In the leadup to my favourite scene in the series, Sae (Shibasaki Kou) has pretty much just been played like a fool by a dude who she used to love & thought she still loved, but he was really just wanting to indignantly cash in on her talents as a hearing-impaired musician. She wanted someone to talk to & Kai (Tsumabauki Satoshi) is the first person she thinks of. She whips out her mobile phone & eMails him, “Respond to me Yuuki Kai.” And hey, whadduya know, he so promptly replies, “I have responded.” The rest of the text conversation goes like this-


Sae: I got dumped.
Kai: I see…
I was thinking, it must’ve been an illusion.
Kai: Yeah.
: After I lost my hearing, it was the first time  that anyone told me they liked me.
: Yeah. [jicks’ note: At his point, I was like, “Come on boy, do you wanna elaborate already before I smack you?”]
: I thought that I could fall in love again. I was feeling special beacuse there was someone who said they even liked someone like me. I thought that I could be that sparkling girl again.
Kai: Yeah.
Sae: That’s all you’ve been saying.
Kai: I don’t know what to say but I’m listening. [jicks’ note: At THIS point, I was like, “Sorry boy! I take my previous harsh comment back! P.S. I love you!”]
Sae: Are you really listening? Are you sure you’re not watching TV or eating cup ramen?
Kai: I’m not. I swear to God I’m not. I just turned the TV off. I just turned the TV off.
Kai (another msg): Are you cold there?
Sae: No, I’m fine [long pause] I want to see you. Can I see you?


Then… the battery in Sae‘s phone dies (it’s a dorama world after all -_-) But it’s all as sweet as pie because one of the most fangirl-melting moments in dorama history is about to adorn us (this is HOW couples should get together <3)


Sae finds her way back to their college & flips through the scribble notebook from their Orange club. Before long, the security guard kicks her out, she steps outside & somewhat shocked, she sees Kai in the distance, sprinting his heart out towards her.


Sae: What’s wrong?
Kai: What do you mean what’s wrong? You’re the one who said you wanted to see me.
Sae: How did you know I was here?
Kai: I had a feeling… although I did run around to other places, like the bookstore.
Sae (brief pause): I felt so sad. I knew it was a one-sided love but it was my only love. I treasured it inside of me. For a long time I had always treasured it. Like this. I had held it close, in my right hand… But you  know.. when I opened my palm there was nothing. Emptiness. There was nothing. It’s stupid, isn’t it?
Kai (brief, hesitant pause): Hey… try opening your left hand… Am I there? [jicks’ note: #O_o# *speechless*]
Sae (edges towards him): Hey… don’t you get embarrassed saying cheesy things like that?
Kai (soulful gaze + most endearing laugh/chuckle/smirk ever xDDDDDDD): You bet it’s embarrassing!


And then we have one big giant embrace (may I add that he looks like a really good snuggler?) I think the fact that their words were all expressed in sign made it that much more touching, that much more pristine, that much more romantic. It was dead silent but they were really listening to each other.

Seriously, if this series – this scenedoesn’t make you fall for Tsumabuki Satoshi, then I don’t know what will.

Enjoy :)))))))

(Btw, Eita & Juri-chan in Orange Days together!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Well, they weren’t really together but I just had to mention them ;O)

Shu! Shu! Shuuuuuuuu!!!!!!

27 08 2010

They’re here! They’re  here! The new Shiseido Uno Fog Bar CMs are here! I kid you not, you will be in tears :)))))


Shu-shu-shu, shu-shu-shu (translation: Watch them now, watch them here. lol x)) >>>

[ edit: Click HERE to the Shiseido website to view the 60s version of the Run CM for now. It’s the 4th clip along the first row. BELIEVE me, you need to! Waiting for file, but as soon as I can do it, I will amend the embed & update the 30s one to the full version. Thankyou for your understanding ^_^ ]

(^^Love to YeSeul over @youtube for upping these!)

^^^Seriously laughed to the point of crying from start to finish in all 3 of them (TOT;;;)


In the Run CM (60s ver.):
Miura Haruma almost not making the gondola… hayaku! Hayaku! You’re gonna be eaten aliiiiive!!!!! xDDDDDDD
※ The choir boys chasing down the Fog Bar boys (the key change in the singing is pure gold xD)
Eita finding time to spray his hair amidst all the chaos lololol
※ The boys’ reaction to the Minotaur… fuuureaking priceless^^;;;;;;
※ The Minotaur joining in on the Fog Bar action *sheds tear*


In the Barber CM:
Eita, Shun & Satoshi‘s admiring, “Why can’t it be me?” faces at how Miura gets to have his hair done by the pretty blonde (btw, Miura‘s “Shhuuu” there OMG, kill me now gaaaaahhh *slaps self in face*)
Eita‘s face at his Chopper-esque looking hairstylist (!) *bangs fist repeatedly on desk* ^^;
※ When the vanity mirrors drop down & the four boys lean in to check themselves out (sucks to be so cute, ne? xDD)


In the Women CM (Yes that is Miyazaki Aoi. She has joined in on the Shu! Shu! forces. Lucky, lucky gal -_-;):
※ The boys’ reaction at the Chopper-dude’s toothless twin *wipes sweat from forehead*


*takes deep breath* They looked like they had waaaaayy too much fun filming all this!!! xDD I didn’t think they could top themselves from their last batch but these CMs had me in stitches even more than what, say, Yamapi‘s Engrish speaking stint in the Kurosagi movie did (click here.) Pure advertising brilliance.

A few more pics hey for the love of it. ‘Tis the perfect way to round out our working week <3


Shu-shu-shu-shuu, I so want these four boys in a dorama now (I will settle for a movie if need be) :))))))

Not done fogging yet

21 08 2010

Gomen, gomen, hontoni gomen, allow me to spazz a little more… I’m basically pouncing on the Shiseido Japan Uno website everyday in hopes of being rewarded w/ a new fogtastic CM but hmm, no such luck (as yet? Should I be holding my breath?)

But! Dah-dah-daahn ! They’ve got new piccies up! Of course, I couldn’t help myself but to post them, so here they are (gaaaaah why & how does hair vanity look like so much fun O_o???)>>>






Also, well, I may as well make the most of it… since these guys can pretty much sell me anything, any day, please let me share my favourite (individual) CMs from these Fog Bar boys ^_^

Eita for MUFG
The reason I was sold? The slapping of the plastic onto the forehead xD
What else did I like? Eita‘s gentle comedic charm. I wish I was a turtle or a pair of random patchwork-y Aztec print trunks lololol I did not just say that ^^;;

Tsumabuki Satoshi (& Kase Ryo) for UNIQLO
The reason I was sold? Just the cool way the pieces of clothing were laid out on the floor & the darn catchy melodic whistling (^o^).。♫♪♫♪♫♪♩♫
What else did I like? Tsumabuki Satoshi‘s Superman shirt pop at the 0.37s mark :))

Oguri Shun for au Sony Ericsson
The reason I was sold? Er, did you not look into his eyes at the end? *sees stars*
What else did I like? Ikimono Gakari‘s Hana wa Sakura Kimi wa Utsukushi as the background theme <3

Miura Haruma for JR東日本My First Aomori
The reason I was sold? The sunshine, the water, the clear blue skies, the fresh breeze, the… lololol Who am I to kid. His fresh youthful innocence. I wish I was a seagull -_-;
What else did I like? The sunshine, the water, the clear blue skies, the fresh breeze (truly! xD)

(^^…or maybe THIS one is my fave. Equal? Something about the way he looks at her @ the 0.15s mark that makes me think things that I probably shouldn’t be thinking as a self-adopted big sister ><)


And, and, and, a few of these guys have together been the faces of other brands before, so while I’m on a role, here is some previous CM magic pre-Shu!Shu!Shu! days (Eita-heavy I hear you say? You’re dreaming… lol) >>>

Eita & Oguri Shun for Otona Glico
The two are brothers.
Eita‘s hair in first CM = Classic.
Shun in second CM as a pilot = Throw me off the plane now.
Chocolate in both CMs = Could it get any better? *munch munch* xD

Eita & Tsumabuki Satoshi for DoCoMo
The entire DoCoMo 2.0 CM series is another advertising campaign for the books. All v. amusing, all v. hip, all v. cool people xD
This one is def one of my all-time faves. LMAO @0.08s mark. Ouchies! ^O^
