Arashi songs played by and Orchestra

I was just doing some random visits to my favorite asianstuff websites when I came across a news about Arashi’s songs being palyed by an orchestra. I got all excited when I saw the news! – because Arashi is my all time favorite Japanese group!


The songs have been played and made into a medley by  Tokyo Kosei Wind Orchestra (TKWO, 東京佼成ウインドオーケストラ) . The orchestra is, from what I read quite popular not only in Japan but in the world and they have been etablished sometime in 1960.

There is no real video yet, but the one I’m posting here is the mp3 of the medley. It sounds really really nice! I don’t know about you guys but I think I really like Arashi songs and I think having their songs played by a very good orchestra means that their songs are quite popular.

The medley consists of the following songs (my favorites are inlcuded! yay! ^^):

We Can Make It
Beautiful Days
One Love
A Day in Our Life
Kitto Daijoubu
Kaze no Mukou E
Sakura Sake
Love so Sweet

Arashi has been in the industry for 10 years! quite an achievement don’t you think! I miss them! ^^ kiki

Jaebum stuff..

I haven’t written for quite a while… but because sittie wanted to me to write something, I’m indulging her… ^^

A lot has happened I think in the Kpop music industry, I’ve read some news but I can’t seem to make myself write something – and because I’m really addicted to watching Shinning Inheritance, so the writing has to wait (Go Lee Seung Gi! kikiki ^^).

But I think  the hottest issue – and by far the worst that I have heard in the past few days was the issue about Jaebum… sigh, I’m getting a little sad writing this… Unfortunately as of the time I am writing this, Jaebum has quit 2PM, and has gone back to Seattle.

For those who are not familiar of what happened, Korean netizens got angry at Jaebum because of the comments he made in one of the social networking here to see the comments.. and the issue got a little too big and because of that he officially resigned from 2PM and went back to Seattle.

Here are two videos… one of him leaving Korea, and the other of him arriving at Seatac airport… i included some photos when he was at the airport too…

Leaving Korea

In Seatac


This is really a very sad.. especially Jaebum was my favorite among the boys… and I think fans of 2PM are sadder than I am… and the bad thing is that, at this moment 2PM is on the hype of their popularity, and it had been like months since they promoted Again and Again, — but the boys had to face a gloomy situation like this.

I think – and this is just my opinon – the netizens are really scary – I can understand that maybe they got angry at him because the comments were not good, and maybe because of patriotism.. but I think what happened was way over the top.. so sad. I think at the moment JYP must find a way to please 2PM fans as the dark cloud that’s above them is getting bigger…

what i wrote here is my opinion.. ANY BAD COMMENTS (degrading, etc) WILL BE DELETED… if you do have those comments please keep them to yourselves!
