  • KAT-TUN’s Kazuya Kamenashi (24) was re-united with his Gokusen drama co-star Yukie Nakama (31) at a promotional event for Panasonic’s electronic beauty products, titled “キレイを贈るクリスマス (Kirei wo Okuru Christmas, Giving a Beautiful Christmas)”.



Quotes: “Kamenashi-kun acted like a newcomer years ago, but he had his own opinions, which I thought made him a responsible kid.  Now he’s growing into an adult man.  I’m so happy.” (Nakama talking about Kamenashi five years ago when they had worked together in Gokusen)

“In one way, I get the message that she’s put a lot of thought into it.  I think it’s a present that shows how much she loves you.” (Kamenashi on what he thinks about couples exchanging electronic beauty products for Christmas)

“I’d like to spend the day with someone I care about.  Having fun together or just chilling out, I want to be able to relax somewhere where we can enjoy each other’s company.  It’d make me happy if it snowed too.” (Kamenashi on what his ideal Christmas date would be if he had the day off)

      Yes! I’m back! I even went to work within 6 hours of getting back to Tokyo…which might explain why I’m so sleepy right now.

      Anyway, thanks for coming back!
