Posted in: K-pop label faces fan, investor fury after firing dating artists See in context

It was Jpop in the 90s first but due to no internet like today, Kpop outshined Jpop in this brainwashed pop world.

Ok This so called no personal freedom reason is why some South Korean is making lot of softporn movies these recent years, trying to be like Japans' weirdly popular AV Industry.

Anyway..most of Kpop artist will turn into actor/actress after few years and stealing the spotlight in Films. This is making big humiliating problem for Theatre Actors or Real Cinema Actors.

Posted in: Veteran Japanese TV, film actress Kirin Kiki dies at 75 See in context

First Film I watched of her is Still Walking...but I couldn't recognized her in her early films..but I do want to watch her 1983 Hometown.

Btw, She really maintained her health for nearly 14 Years. Usually Breast Cancer patients survival rate is 5 years only. Did she go under Chemotherapy and took Tamoxifen Tablets? Or did she go through Natural Herbal Remedies or just normal way of living life like gardening, walking, maintaining diet etc?.....

Posted in: 74% of Japanese companies against daylight saving time for 2020 Olympics: poll See in context

In UK, For 5 months (Nov - March), the days become darker after 3:30pm. But between from May till Sep, days are longer, sunset is after 8,9, and even 10pm.

Not only in Japan but other South east Asian countries, sunset is around 6pm for 6,7 months, then rest is around 5pm.

Daylight saving is not useful in Asian countries but in the west, it somehow helping them economically, some reason hidden there.

However, to increase the time to be with family and friends, Sunset at around 9pm is almost perfect for everyone.

Posted in: Whenever you say or hear someone say "the good old days," do you think the "old days" really were good in some sense or is it false nostalgia for a past that never really existed and that we are remembering pleasant experiences and filtering out bad ones? See in context

Gool ole days

Family Occasional Get together (e.g. Movie Still Walking)

Childhood Hiking (e.g. Movie I Wish)

Jackie Chan & Other Kung Fu Movies

Those who are over 50, it's usually Village Rural days back in the late 60s to Early 80s

Those who are between 30 and 50, it's from mid 80s to mid 90s (Best Childhood Years), camping scout days, early sega..nintendo days, cassettes, etc.

New generation After 2005, it's all about mobile and bashing on comments on youtube, complaints and repetitive stuff.

The taste of Chowmein of the early 90s has gone so low over the years and of late, you will never find quality of taste in Chowmein in any Chinese restaurants.

Don't they have back problem with that bow? Roughly Japanese bow over 50 in a day and in movies, 2 minutes of the scenes are bows. Korean bow is slightly disrespectful as it avoids back, however may get the problem with the neck.

Western Handshakes - disgusting filthy hands

Asian Namaste - Embarrassing

Japanese & Korean bows - back & neck problem

O' Wow, who is the writer of this article? He/She should pass this message to those people. Tell them to watch Japanese movie 1988 The Yen Family by Yojiro Takita.

It is exactly what they have been trying to do. Hilarious movie though.

Posted in: 4 Japanese basketball players sent home from Asian Games after spending night with prostitutes in hotel See in context

They must have heard some sexual fantasy stories about the Indonesian girls different than their own Japanese girls. (Heard it's quite different experience actually). So they thought this could be the chance.

Nowadays, many people whether men or women, they want to experience something different out of their cage, just to feel good. That either becomes one of the best or one of the worst. This became latter.

Posted in: In your experience, which country's airport immigration offices have been the rudest or most difficult to deal with? See in context


Their attitude towards their own citizens is very rude and harsh. The airport and the staff are the worst in the world. They are nice to foreigners (for cash) but never good to their own people coming from abroad. No wonder it is one of the poorest country on Earth.
