Bae Suzy... Nogizaka46!....Jin Se-Yeon.... Nanase Nishino!.... if you're a fan at all of any of them then you've come to the right place(!) but many others are featured here besides them. Do mainly quick reviews on things I've watched, try to make the reviews brief, quick to read through with not too many spoilers, just whether they're good or bad and why I thought so plus whether you may find them enjoyable. Many, many screenshots are included from everything I've watched plus any video trailers if they're available. Hope you find something that interests you, don't hesitate to comment, arigato gozaimasu!

Also these days(mid-2017) have many posts for Korean actresses, dramas and films that are worth checking out as over the years have become a much bigger fan of Korean dramas versus the ones from Japan.

Few tidbits....

Yuko Araki: Many recent happenings....



 Though she doesn't have all that many posts do like Yuko quite a bit, my stable of women I post about has risen to such a high level it's hard to keep up with everyone. Have close to eighty pics for today but am holding some back as I don't want to have another long gap between posts. Yuko over the years has mainly been known as a model though these days you could consider her more of an actress. She's been three dramas and three films this year plus has another drama starting up very soon and for the first time will have the lead female role in it.


 More news on that show when it comes out but it won't be starting for another two months. Yuko was in the 'Code Blue' film that came out in July and was also in the 2017 series. That film has been ultra successful as it's now in the top fifty of all time for highest grossing Japanese movies, wonder if that means there will be a sequel or another TV season?
 On to some newish pics and as mentioned have so many there will be a second post for her soon with many more activities. There is a huge fan of Yuko out there who we haven't heard from lately and hopefully they'll check in to view this post. On September 1st she was at the 'Tokyo Girls Collection' Autumn show that was held in Saitama though didn't dress as well as she did at their Spring show.











 Pics here are some recent ones Yuko did for the Modelpress site. She was promoting a new 'Kirin Afternoon Tea' and she also did a few CM's for the company.











 Have three mag spreads for today which are all a few months old. This first one is an A+ set and you rarely see Yuko have any gravure pics which is okay as she kind of puts out a more classy vibe. First set for today is from the July 26th edition of Tokyo Walker Plus, the 'Code Blue' film came out the next day.












 Yuko has been an exclusive model for Non-no for close to five years now, she'll be turning 25 in December. Have two of their issues here and she has the cover for both of them. This set is from their August edition and shouldn't have to tell you who she shares the spread with....








 Second Yuko spread for Non-no is from  their September issue.

















 This last set of Yuko pics are the best bunch for today. On November 5th she was at a tree lighting ceremony in Roppogni Hills and they seem to happen earlier each year. The ceremony was called 'Keyakisaka Illuminations' and it had nothing to do with the J-Pop group, she was the Snow Queen for the lighting. Think the whole display has some incredible number of about 700,000 LEDs, Yuko didn't need any of those lights to illuminate her! Plenty of fabulous pics from today's event and there's a short video worth checking out after them.
