Come On Irene (Itoshi no Irene)

With the main lead! Filipina-Cebuana actress Ms. Natileiigh Sitoy with her character's signature pose!

Before anything else, a huge thanks to JDoramaEigaPH for making this blockscreening possible! Also, thank you to Ms. Nats for being there with us!

I arrived at the venue around 3:30pm. I planned to come early since I always come from the South area. I helped Ruu; one of the admins of JDoramaEigaPH; to buy some drinks and snacks for the viewers. We bought so many bottled water and Piatos! Our friends from the group like Tina, Lare and Kuya Ais were also there early. The viewers came one by one and claimed their tickets then the viewing started at around 8:30pm.

"Come On Irene" or "Itoshi no Irene" stars Amuse actor Yasuda Ken-san and Filipina-Cebuana actress Ms. Natileigh Sitoy. The movie tackles about illegal arranged marriages between Japanese and Filipinos who are in deep poverty. Kudos to both of the actors' brilliant acting! I was also amazed with Iseya Yusuke-san's acting here. His English is also so perfect! This is a dark and heavy film so I greatly recommend to keep an open mind if you watch this film.

Just like Ms. Nats, one of my favorite scenes is the first kiss of Iwao and Irene. That was absolutely so pure! See the above photo for Irene's signature pose! She did this pose before the kissing scene. I also loved the murder part. That was also pretty intense!! I hope everyone who hasn't seen this will watch this too!

Chingu Dachi = "Chingu" (Korean) plus Dachi from the Japanese word "Tomodachi" = FRIEND (English)

Last September 22nd, I dropped by at the soft opening of a new J-Pop and K-Pop store called “Chingu Dachi”. Chingu Dachi caters to both J-Pop and K-Pop fans. Their goods for sale range from photobooks, to CDs, to concert DVDs to fansite and fanmade merchandise!

Chingu Dachi is located at Unit 5 G/F Ledesma bldg., # 11 Jordan St., Multinational Village, Parañaque City, Metro Manila

It’s easy to commute to the place. If you’re coming from Baclaran area, just ride the jeepney going to Sucat then drop off at Multi / Puregold / SNR then cross using the overpass then ride the tricycle going to Jordan St., Multinational Village. The store is beside a water refill station and 7/11.

Chingu Dachi is open from Tuesdays to Saturdays. Their business starts from 11am and closes at 9pm.

I arrived at the place at around 10:30am. There were already so many people waiting for the shop to open. I was already no. 82. It actually took me 3 hours to get inside the store. Since the store is only small, they only let five people in for five to fifteen minutes. That was clearly not enough for a fan like me but it was understandable since there were lots of people waiting to get in. I applaud the Chingu Dachi team for being organized. They gave queue nos. beforehand and they were all so friendly! However, unluckily, I didn’t get to buy anything since they ran out of Perfume items. I came to buy some Perfume CDs.

The store is absolutely full of K-Pop goods. But, it also has a good no. of J-Pop stuff! I saw two ONE OK ROCK Primal Footmarks that cost 1,800 Php and they have so many Johnny’s uchiwa for a very cheap price. J-Pop CDs cost about 300, 500 and 1,000 Php each. According to the store owner, they have J-Pop and J-Rock posters too and they will display them on the days to come.

Even though I didn’t get to purchase from them yet, I recommend to drop by this store if you’re a huge J-Pop and K-Pop fan. It will surely be worth your money and time!

They’ll open a shoppee account soon as well so stay tuned at their page.

Tokyo Tarareba Musume starring Yoshitaka Yuriko, Eikura Nana, Oshima Yuko, Sakaguchi Kentaro and Suzuki Ryuhei

Perfume and Yuririn or Yoshitaka Yuriko who are both Amuse artists collaborated for a drama series project. Yoshitaka Yuriko was the main lead in the drama "Tokyo Tarareba Musume" while Perfume was responsible for the main theme that was entitled as "TOKYO GIRL". Perfume's a-chan was also involved in the said drama series since she voice acted for an imaginative character called "Liva". Yuririn was at the music video of "TOKYO GIRL". However, sadly, she wasn't part of the making of. But still, this is something really interesting from Perfume! You will understand the clip since it includes English subtitles.

Kato Ryo as "Tara", Yoshitaka Yuriko as Kamata Rinko and Perfume's a-chan as "Liva"

Tokyo Tarareba Musume Synopsis from Asianwiki:

30-year-old Kamata Rinko (Yoshitaka Yuriko) works as an unpopular screenwriter. She doesn't have a boyfriend, but she has two female friends Kaori (Eikura Nana) and Koyuki (Oshima Yuko). They meet regularly at a bar. There, they complain about their situations and go through what if scenarios. One day, Kamata Rinko decides to go for happiness at love and work.

Here are some screenshots of Yuririn at the "TOKYO GIRL" music video:




I ripped my own CD and got the DVD rip from JPopsuki. The CD contains four tracks including the coupling song "Houseki no Ame" and their instrumental versions. I also included the remastered version of "TOKYO GIRL" from their latest album "Future Pop".

Head to the cut below for the goodies!
