......she looks like a creepy pin up in a playboy magazine... personally im not a fan of what shes wearing or how shes poseing.. the light doesnt compliment certain features. the undergarments she's wearing could have been diffrent but still given her a faint classy look. personally i give it a 6 out of 10 ....just cause im bound to see this in a bunch of 'adult' picture sites

I heard she would get married with bandman. I don't understand what she is thinking. Something strange and something desperate feeling. Don't you think so?

Happen she shouldn't worn Western or contemporay underwear. She is actually nice, but her looks like a cavalier in the picture. Very wrong sort of class for a lass.

“Don’t stop love” and “Love Me Back,”

Only losers plead like this...nothing poetical about such songs.

Wow, naturally blonde to boot!

While I don't like Koda Kumi's personality, particularly with regard some of her past comments, the woman CAN dance, and has a pretty good looking body. I'd never buy her music, though.

Romeo, I think she's going to regret ever saying that when she gets old, isn't married and has no kids.

Not a fan of her but I'd take her over Hamasaki any day! She was a fat kid, was bullied and has chatted about that. Not exactly a 'rolemodel" but probably the closest Japan will get in terms of someone in the entertainment business when it comes to the issues of growing up and not being kawaiiiiii like the annoying girls of AKB and Morning Musume and the like.

@BlueWitch - Thanks for the info!

"Love Me Back"

There are cases where love is not returned. Sad.

Kumi Koda, 29,

She's inching closer to the "dirty womb" age.

Her and "oiran" divn't mix. Even if she dresses like a real oiran, her!

i have a new title.. Oira ha iran!

She has to try harder because she is not naturally beautiful like Nakashima Mika or Kimura Kaera. Artistic though cliche' photo nonetheless.

black undies would have been more " classic ", this pukey pink is just cheap and nasty...................but then that's the look she wants to achieve. LOL

The album title is correctly Japonesque, not that I'll be buying it.

@DutchHusband

Oiran were high class rich prostitutes. Koda Kumi doesn't have a clue what she is trying to portray. Whoever is dressing her up got mixed the old Oiran houses with the modern soaplands for sure.

Just looking at her gives me a full salute.

lol don't like her -_- zzzz

Oiran has class but she hasn't.

This looks really bad and cheap.

When does Kumi Koda ever wear a non-sexy costume?

Good question, WilliB, but I can't detect anything sexy in this appearance.

OMG, who on earth made that up? This is so ugly and so ridiculous. It should be forbidden to use the term 'oiran' for that travesty.

KK is hot mess. This is a good example of what NOT to make your career like. She'll bare all soon if she hasn't already. Anything to make a name for herself.

I learned something about myself this year from these women. I don't like the letter K. Koda Kumi Kim Kardashian

Why do crappy women have names that start with K?

Ouch! she looks great

If that's an OIRAN「花魁」then I'm the Miko from the jinjya. What she's wearing is nowhere near a real Oiran custome. She looks more like a 娼婦 to me. Want to get a taste of what Oiran is? Watch the movie SAKURAN さくらんwith Tsuchiya Anna.

17 songs, including the hits “Don’t stop love” and “Love Me Back,”

Not to mention smash hits like "Dovey love tub," "Love is love is love," "Lovtastic love," and the timeless classic "When loving lovers love, it's LOVE"! WOW!

She's Ayumi's double to a lesser degree.No,I'm not fond of Ayumi.

Without talent and a good personality you won't be a success in Japan,sorry i take that back!!

Voice-Flat!-Body- Anything BUT!-Oiran ? Priceless!!

She has only a few songs worth listening to. Unfortunately, she seems to cultivate a trashy type of image. I do think she has some talent, she just doesn't seem to use it very well.

She's always looked a mess, so why break the habits of a lifetime. Give me Kaela Kimura anyday.

Loved her ever since she sang the theme song to Final Fantasy X. I look forward to her latest release. Should be as fun to listen to as always. Highly entertaining singer. Oh, and the fact that she's DAMN sexy doesn't hurt, either.

She has enough talent to my eyes.

-3 ( +3 / -6 )

People still give this talentless hack their money?
