[Fall 2012] PRICELESS
~Aru Wake Needaro, Namon!~

Trailer: http://v.youku.com/v_show/id_XNDUxNTkwMDQ0.html Kimura Takuya portraying a man who is walking at the bottom of his life! Kindaichi Fumio (Kimura) is a popular and friendly office worker at his company, but for some reason the top brass of his company aren’t too fond of him. One day he is suddenly being faced with a crime he can’t remember that he committed and gets chased out from his position. In the blink of an eye he becomes penniless, hopeless, and homeless. However, he happens to meet two children who have no money just like him and thanks them as he learns how to survive in the world without money. Despite this time of adversity, he keeps on plunging forward and never loses his positive attitude. He’s not only one going through a major change. His unreliable boss (Nakai) and the plain female accountant (Karina) gradually start to get influenced by Fumio for the better as well. ‘PRICELESS’ is a heartwarming comedy about a man who is struggling to get back on his feet after reaching the absolute bottom in his life. Kimura and Nakai have already worked together for the movie ‘HERO’ (2007), but Karina is a new name on the list of supporting actresses. He seems to be very enthusiastic about this drama and the Olympics inspired him to make great teamwork his top priority for this project. It will be interesting to see whether the viewers will be able to feel the great teamwork and chemistry on screen as well.

PRICELESS JDrama Ep 5 Recap
This is a short recap of what happened in ep 5. This is another good drama this season. Moai came to stay with Kindaichi and Saya. Moai is a bit freaked out by the residents. The kids fixed up the cart the ramen shop owner left for Kindaichi but they still don't know what to sell. Saya doesn't want to share the room with 2 men so she goes to the Lolita girl room but that girl keeps talking so she ended up not getting any sleep. The trio went to the bartender's shop and had some hotdog sandwiches. They decided to sell the hotdogs in front of their own company! Kindaichi sure is a super optimistic guy. Moai is embarrassed and wanted to go back. The crowds gather and said some bad things. Good thing there's still that young guy who is on Kindaichi's side. He asked for one hotdog and everyone started buying. This sorta thing only happened in drama. The hotdog sells really well. Moai got an interview at another company The president is doing his evil things again ending the contract with another long-term partner factory. Kindaichi's gf showed up and asked to have a talk with Saya. She said she loves Kindaichi and asked how Saya feels about him. Saya said she has no feeling for him. The gf is not satisfied and just left leaving $200 to pay for the tea on the table! I didn't know she's that rich! The president saw the long line of people buying hotdogs from Kindaichi and decided to go check it out. He went to the beginning of the line and his evil right hand mand asked Kindaichi to sell them a hotdog but Kindaichi said they should line up since everyone also lined up. The president said fine and went back to the end of the line but his employees all started making way for him. It was like the Mose's staff effect. Kindaichi had no choice but to sell him the hotdog and asked for 300 yen ( about $3.5). They are shocked that he dared to ask money from the president but gave it to him anyway. They turned around to leave but Saya called after him and asked why he fired her and Kindaichi. The president asked "Just what do you think the 2 of you can do?" Saya couldn't say anything but Kindachi said, "It's not just the 2 of us." Moai showed up saying they can serve soup along with the hotdog using the thermal bottle. Kindaichi asked the president, "What can you do alone?" Kindaichi told him the soup is 200 yen but the president said he doesn't need and left. The crowd hesitated to buy the soup but the young guy who bought the first hotdog asked for the soup then everyone lined up again to buy the hotdog and soup. At night, Saya decided to come back to the room and sleep in the middle of Kindaichi and Moai!! I guess she considered them as friends now. In the morning Yoko (Kindaichi's gf) 's dad came and have breakfast. He seems like a guy who had been through poverty. He commented that the breakfast was delicious. Kindachi asked, "Who are you?" End of ep 5 I wonder if there will be any romance between Saya and Kindaichi. It seems Yoko's dad wants Kindaichi to work for him and Kindaichi starts to work on the thermal bottle project or something. Look forward to monday!!

Đông Nhi là một trong những ca sĩ trẻ tiêu biểu của nền âm nhạc Việt Nam với khối giải thưởng đồ sộ và lực lượng người hâm mộ hùng hậu. Với niềm đam mê nghệ thuật từ bé, từng thi đậu vào trường Khoa học xã hội nhân văn, nhưng cô nàng bản lĩnh đã mạnh dạn từ bỏ, để thực hiện mơ ước được ca hát. Không bỏ cuộc, Đông Nhi kiên trì theo đuổi đam mê. Có thể nói cô nàng là một trong những ca sĩ hoạt động rất tích cực khi chỉ trong vỏn vẹn năm 2008, Đông Nhi đã ra mắt liên tục ba bản thu âm Khóc, Bối rối, và Lời thú tội ngọt ngào. Cả ba sản phẩm âm nhạc đều đánh vào thị hiếu âm nhạc của công chúng lúc bấy giờ và nhận được những thành công vang dội. Những năm tiếp theo, cô nàng không dừng lại ở ca hát mà còn lấn sân sang các hoạt động khác. Đông Nhi từng tham gia nhiều phim điện ảnh nổi tiếng như: Công chúa teen và ngũ hổ tướng, Thứ ba học trò, Giải cứu thần chết,.... Cuối năm 2009, Đông Nhi từng phải ngừng hoạt động khi gặp vấn đề về sức khỏe. Thế nhưng, ngay vào năm 2010, cô nhanh chóng quay trở lại thị trường âm nhạc bằng album đầu tay mang tên The First Step. Được đầu tư và chọn lọc kĩ càng, album nhanh chóng giành lấy 2 giải thưởng lớn của làng nhạc Việt. Những năm gần đây, sự bứt phá của Đông Nhi trong việc thay đổi hình tượng theo thị hiếu âm nhạc khiến người hâm mộ phải “choáng ngợp”. Luôn bắt kịp xu hướng âm nhạc mới nhất để tạo ra những sản phẩm ấn tượng và có sức hút đến với người nghe, Đông Nhi một lần nữa cho thấy những cố gắng không ngừng của cô trong thời gian qua là xứng đáng với lòng tin yêu từ khán giả. Có thể nói năm 2015 là một năm hoạt động tích cực nhất của Đông Nhi, khi cô nàng liên tục bận rộn với lịch trình dày đặc.

Những bản hòa phối ấn tượng được Đông Nhi đầu tư bài bản và xử lí bằng kĩ thuật điêu luyện đã khiến khán giả một lần nữa phải thán phục bản lĩnh của cô nàng. Từ liveshow đầu tiên với chủ đề freestyle, cho đến những đêm diễn tiếp theo với các dòng nhạc dance, house, world music,… Đông Nhi luôn thể hiện bản thân mình một cách tốt nhất ở từng tiết mục. Cùng thời gian tham gia The Remix 2015, Đông Nhi “đá chéo sân” khi mạnh dạn tham gia ngồi trên “ghế nóng” chương trình Tỏa sáng tài năng châu Á. Khán giả lại được trông thấy một khía cạnh khác của cô nàng với cương vị là ban giám khảo của một cuộc thi. Vào tháng 5/2015, Đông Nhi hợp tác cùng Isaac cho ra mắt MV Vì ai vì anh với kĩ xảo 3D hiện đại, mới lạ. Chỉ trong ngày đầu ra mắt, MV đã được đông đảo người hâm mộ đón nhận và đạt được hơn 1 triệu lượt xem tại các trang âm nhạc trực tuyến. Ngày 2/12/2015, tại lễ trao giải thưởng MAMA 2015, Đông Nhi đã trở thành nữ ca sĩ trẻ tuổi nhất Việt Nam đạt được danh hiệu Nghệ sĩ châu Á xuất sắc nhất. Đây được xem là giải thưởng lớn nhất trong sự nghiệp âm nhạc Đông Nhi từ trước đến nay. Nối tiếp đàn chị Mỹ Tâm, Thu Minh, Hồ Quỳnh Hương, Đông Nhi mang lại niềm tự hào cho nước nhà cũng như cộng đồng người hâm mộ của cô. Đầu năm 2016, Đông Nhi tiếp tục ra mắt dự án "Pink Girl", Đông Nhi theo bạn trai bỏ trốn trên xế hộp màu hồng nổi bật trong MV mới "Pink Girl" được sản xuất bởi nhạc sĩ Đỗ Hiếu với chất nhạc Tropical House hiện đại.

Kimura Takuya to live in poverty for new Monday drama ‘PRICELESS’
On August 14th, it was announced that SMAP’s Kimura Takuya will be starring in Fuji TV’s new “Getsu 9″ drama for the upcoming fall season. The drama with the tentative title ‘PRICELESS‘ revolves around a salary man who falls into a life of destitution after being fired from his company. Although it will already be Kimura’s ninth starring role in a “Getsu 9″ drama, it will be the first time for him to play a character living in poverty. At first everything seems to go well for the protagonist – living a satisfying life as a bachelor and working at the middle management of a major company. He’s also on good terms with his co-workers, but one day he gets wrapped up in an intrigue and ends up getting fired for something he hasn’t done. Before he even realized, he had become a penniless man without a phone and no place to stay. By chance he happens to get acquainted to other poor children at a park and gradually begins to realize that there are many important “priceless” things in life that you can’t buy with money. ‘PRICELESS’ is based on an original script by Furuya Kazunao (‘Ninkyo Helper’, ‘37-sai de Ishani Natta Boku’). It’s said to be a humorous drama with a lovable and cheerful protagonist who never loses his positive attitude despite those tragic turns. His positive attitude even causes the change of his unreliable boss – played by Nakai Kiichi – and one of his female colleagues, an introverted accountant played by Karina. Just before the start of the filming, Kimura stated, “Our Japanese athletes at the London 2012 Olympics showed us impressive and PRICELESS teamwork. The staff, my co-stars and I want to form just as great of a team and make this drama our own.” Nakai commented, “You better not miss any second of this fast-paced drama!” Karina, whose character will eventually become the love interest of the protagonist, is also looking forward to the filming. She said, “I’m nervous since it’s my first time working together with Kimura and Nakai. My character sounds plain, but I still want to give it my all.” The producer added, “We want to give people courage and hope with a protagonist that still lives every day to the fullest despite having lost everything.” ‘PRICELESS’ is scheduled to air its first episode in October.

J-Movie: Memoirs of a Teenage Amnesiac
If Naomi had picked tails, she would have won the coin toss. She wouldn’t have had to go back for the yearbook camera, and she wouldn’t have hit her head on the steps. She wouldn’t have woken up in an ambulance with amnesia. She certainly would have remembered her boyfriend, Ace. She might even have remembered why she fell in love with him in the first place. She would understand why her best friend, Mirai, keeps calling her “Chief.” She’d know about her mom’s new family. She’d know about her dad’s fiancée. She never would have met Yuji, the boy with the questionable past and the even fuzzier future, who tells her he once wanted to kiss her. She wouldn’t have wanted to kiss him back. But Naomi picked heads. Based on a book of the same name by Gabrielle Zevin, Memoirs of a Teenage Amnesiac is a quaint, confusing, but beautiful film starring some of my favorite Japanese actors! Maki Horikita - Naomi Sukuse Yuya Tegoshi - Mirai Hasegawa Kenichi Matsuyama - Yuji Miwa Anton Yelchin - Ace Zuckerman Emma Roberts - Alice Leeds The soundtrack is also AWESOME. (you can listen to the whole soundtrack here) I'm pretty sure the first time I watched this, I was staying up all night because I couldn't sleep. I was probably emotionally and physically tired and this movie just hit me like a ton of bricks. It really helped me out. *sorry don't have subs for the trailer ㅠㅠ* I haven't read the book, but it's on my list! Has anyone else seen this or want to watch it?
