I spent both Season 1 and Season 2 of the wonderfully touching (Under One Roof) hoping he’d get the girl (the once young and darling Noriko Sakai), which he ended up doing at the very end. My favorite Masa dorama remains could turn a girl into a woman just like that.I will always remember him as Hata-san (and perhaps dreaming I was his Teruteru-Bozu).I vividly recall swooning over him and falling asleep to the fervent prayers that I’d meet the perfect chaebol prince like him to sweep me off my feet.Toshiaki is an actor’s actor, with his early fluffy doramas (like Imouto wo) happening because he’s so damn good looking the man has to fan service us all.Kimu Taku is famous for doing one dorama a year, and it’s always highly anticipated.Last year’s ren’ai does nothing for me, other than add to my Takenouchi Yutaka love.I believe that had he not hit his stride as an actor at the same time as Kimu Taku, he would be an even bigger star today.Imagine a talented basketball player hitting his prime at the same time as Michael Jordan, and that is what happened with Yutaka and Kimu Taku.
He’s what I would call a man’s man, with a commanding screen presence. It’s hard to separate Naohito from his performance as Buchou (i.e. Osamu gives off such bad boy vibes that should you meet him at a bar and he decides to turn on his megawatt charm, you’ll wonder thirty minutes later where your panties went.No one even comes close to his stature, name recognition, and all-around belovedness.is still going strong, releasing an album last year with sold out concert tours and variety shows that are still popular.Fukuyama Masaharu This guy has my number for some inexplicable reason.He was my biggest J-crush growing up, being a singer and actor that was just so darn appealing onscreen.
