omg Sakuranbo is such a throwback, and I haven’t seen the name Otsuka Ai in forever. Loved his cover and the dancing was adorable haha

I tried to keep to my usual lurking, but I got too excited at Uchiage Hanabi. HOW THE HELL DOES HE SOUND THE SAME AS HIS YOUTUBE VERSION!!!!! Minus the obvious live acoustics.

GOD I'M OBSESSED WITH THE SONG NOW. I don't even know of the anime, but I'm seriously considering to watch it for real now.

JUNSU YOU BRAT GIMME A NEW ALBUM!! IT DOESN'T EVEN HAVE TO BE IN KOREAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'd pay for a Japanese album tbh. And please, less dramatics and more things that are well-received at ALL LAYERS OF AGES. I'll allow ONE Isn't This Song Funny-ish song, but that's all. We need a proper album pls ;;____;;

Which anime? I only know the song because I was a fan of Otsuka Ai back in the day... Googling I can't find an anime it was used in?

Ah, I was referring to Uchiage Hanabi! Apparently it was from a film entitled Fireworks? Re: Sakuranbo, don’t think it was ever used as a theme song.

Oh okay! Sorry!! And thanks for the reply. I was like.... I was a crazy stan of hers back then that totally would have forced myself to watch an anime based off a theme song... What is going on hahaha.

Lmao I can understand— I just admitted wanting to do the same thing right up there myself 🙈🙈🙈

Her latest stuff are still satisfying too, I’m only listening to household names at this point when it comes to J-pop.

whispers he talked about preparing a japanese album at his concert ~ although, nothing official yet ofc and considering his upcoming musical, i wouldn't expect anything until end of this year or beginning of next year

Hyperventilating to read that as i scale 3 floors of stairs lmao

IM READYYYYY ive long since given up on trying to catch him live so all the excitement i have now is for me to get his albums lmao
psharp10 3rd-Apr-2019 02:32 pm (UTC)
!!! but yeah, i've p much given up on being able to see him live too :( i wish he can get back into the jpn entertainment scene like jaejoong has

Do you think it’ll be possible/feasible for him to do small tours across SEA and beyond his usual Jp/Kor promos? God knows I would pay if he comes to SEA. And given the obvious divide since all these time, he doesn’t even have to overshoot and just book an intimate venue tbh.

Hyolyn is coming to my country soon and I was so surprised bc nobody really wants to hit KL tbh

Edit: considering the comments praising his pronounciation with the covers he uploaded, God we all need Jp!Xia. He’s def working behind the scenes perfecting things, bc I know last I heard he completely forgot his Japanese 😂😂😂 I haven’t looped back into Jae’s new JP stuff but the short MV I saw didn’t grab my attention the way his Kor stuff usually does.

i'm honestly not sure about SEA rn because i know right now he has more japanese concerts lined up till april 19th, then xcalibur has its run from june to august (idk if there'll be within skr tours for that either? like elisabeth had, where they performed in different regions like gwangju, busan, etc.) - i feel that he'll be working on an album post that (but if it's jpn, he wouldn't rush it - not that he'd rush it for a korean one either, so again, not until early next year i feel) and also prepping for another ballad & musical concert (seeing as he's doing a new musical this year)

aside from like, giving back to fans with all this content, i do think he's like slightly testing waters with these covers + also trying to improve his japanese (he said his is like a preschooler's rn lmao) and given that he's openly at least mentioned the possibility of an album, i do hope it's a japanese album that he prepares for, esp if he can get the same management as jaejoong in japan

jaej so far has had a few p good songs in japanese, but yeah, his korean solo stuff is superior (as is his older japanese solo songs) imo

The thing abt them promoting in Kr is that the chance to meet fans is limited to them doing concert, and looking at how thriving Jae is doing shows in Jp, they really do miss that, so I can understand why they’d reroute their promotions there. Thank god for Jp. Can’t wait for him to kill me with new songs. Uchiage Hanabi was just... even Sakuranbo.. I’ve been looping the two songs all day since they dropped 😭😭😭

Man I should probably aim for his next Ballad concert hmm

Oh my god I am screaming!!!!!!

Otsukai Ai is what really got me into pop music. She was such a weirdo, and I somehow fell in love with her despite only being into metal and j-rock. TBH, she is probably why when I saw Yunho on X-men that I was willing to even get into K-pop and DBSK to begin with. I also met one of my best friends because of her.

This makes me so happy.
