Kumi Koda, 29,

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

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

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!

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.

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

@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.

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

This is not sexy, it is cheap,tacky and nasty.

lol lunchbox.

yah im not a big fan of her music, but she has two other talents that I like

1 ( +3 / -2 )

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.

Ouch! she looks great

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

This looks really bad and cheap.

Oiran has class but she hasn't.

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

1 ( +1 / -0 )

Wow, naturally blonde to boot!

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?

1 ( +1 / -0 )

She looks fantastic!!

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.

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

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?

well in yr into the mannequin look I suppose this cud be for you, personally I will pass

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.

0 ( +2 / -2 )

lol don't like her -_- zzzz

0 ( +1 / -1 )

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

@BlueWitch

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

@BlueWitch - Thanks for the info!

"Love Me Back"

There are cases where love is not returned. Sad.

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.

“Don’t stop love” and “Love Me Back,”

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

0 ( +0 / -0 )

@BlueWitch have got a lot of knowledge to share... I always noticed BlueWitch bringing new information to JT... :) Its definitely helps, those who dont know anything about all these terms... Thanks :)

lol!! RomeoR hahaha i remember that comment she made lol

i don't think the photo terrible or cheap, just wished it was someone else not koda -_-

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.

0 ( +0 / -0 )

dude, stop hating. i think the album covers gorgeous. She's got talent, a unique voice, and she's beautiful too. Her songs are also really good.

0 ( +0 / -0 )

Nice

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

......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

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

-2 ( +0 / -2 )

Just looking at her gives me a full salute.

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.

-2 ( +1 / -3 )

She has enough talent to my eyes.
