It’s been two years since Younha’s last album in Japan, and now she will be making a comeback!
Younha debuted with her Japanese debut with single “Yubikiri” in 2004, and became known as “Oricon’s Comet” for killing charts in Japan. Now, for the first time in 2 years, she will be making a comeback on September 10th.
This upcoming album will be remakes of her Korean songs. The title song will be, “People”, and the album will also include a bonus OST track from the popular drama, “You Who Came From The Stars”.
During her break from Japan, Younha has been working diligently in Korea and has advanced her work as a singer songwriter, showing her wide range of genres and skills. Especially, as this year will mark her ten year anniversary, netizens have been anticipating her future promotions.
Younha’s company, Wealive Company, stated, “We have organized and planned many promotions for Younha during the second half of the year. During the long break, this album has been prepared carefully to present this to the Japanese fans who have been waiting. Also, in the second half of the year, we ask from the fans for lots of anticipation and encouragement for Younha’s Korean album, which both Younha and all the staff have been carefully preparing this project.”
Actress Meisa Kuroki, 23, has officially announced that she is pregnant. The announcement was made on her blog on Sunday, several weeks after it was widely reported by media.
Kuroki, who was rumored to be pregnant when she married singer Akanishi Jin, 27, back in February, told fans, “I’m finally able to officially announce that I am four months pregnant.” She went on to apologize for the delay in the announcement.
Both Kuroki and Akanishi publicly denied their relationship and failed to confirm widespread reports that Kuroki was pregnant at the time of their marriage.
“Right now, I feel mentally and physically well. I’m happy and grateful to have been blessed with a child,” she wrote.
Kuroki’s agency has announced that she is to appear in the play, “Miyazawa Kenji ga Tsutaeru Koto,” on May 12-13 at Setagaya Public Theater, before going on maternity leave. She reportedly plans to return to work sometime after giving birth.
Actress-singer Meisa Kuroki, 23, who in February announced her sudden marriage to former KAT-TUN singer Jin Akanishi, 27, will appear in a recitation of “Miyazaki Kenji ga tsutaerukoto” (Message from Kenji Miyazaki) at the Setagaya Public Theater in Tokyo on May 12-13.
Since announcing her marriage and pregnancy, Kuroki has dropped out of public view, but decided to take part in the Miyazawa event because it is in support of the victims of the March 11 disaster, she said in a statement.
Kuroki will join Yu Aoi, Shinobu Otake, Yoshino Kimura, Kyoko Koizumi, Kyoka Suzuki, Yosuke Eguchi, Tsurube Shofukutei and Shinichi Tsutsumi, among others.
The performers’ combinations and schedules will be announced later. The recitation goes from May 9 until June 3.
JPop singer Meisa Kuroki and singer-songwriter Jin Akanishi have been in the news that they are dating but Kuroki denied the rumour and said in a statement released by her talent agency, “We’re friends but he is not my boyfriend”. Also, Akanishi’s agency released a statement denying the boyfriend -girlfriend rumour that said “We are not going out.”
The rumour started when Kuroki and Akanishi were seen at Tokyo DisneySea on January 22, 2012; however, they were not by themselves, they were with a group of friends.
Although, Kuroki and Akanishi would look gorgeous together; however, if they did become a couple, their busy careers would break the two apart. So, it’s probably good that they are calling themselves “just friends”.
Kuroki is 23 will release her new album entitled “Unlocked” on February 15, 2012 and Akanishi is 27, a former singer for the Japanese group KAT-TUN and he will be releasing his debut solo album in March 2012 plus tour the United States.
