JJNN Tuesday: Entertainment - 08

Welcome again to JJNN for Tuesday September 23rd, 2008. Today we will be talking about a man all the girls love.

Every year around this time of year the Japanese magazine "an an" puts out an issue that rates famous people in categories like "The most huggable man" or "The most sexy man". Before the article is put out they release the categories and over 10000 people vote on who goes where. According to this article the winner for "The most loved man" is Kimura Takuya.

This is no surprise really because Japanese woman love Kimura Takuya (Kimutaku for short). He is like a mini-God for them. Not only did he win "The most loved man" award this year, but he has for the past 15 years! Along with this 15th victory in that category he also got first place in "The man I would like to get hugged by," "The man I would love to have for a lover," "The most sexy man," and "The man with the most fashion sense." For those of you have have never heard of Kimutaku and don't know what he looks like, what do you think this guy looks like? I just want to know what kind of image you get about a guy that gets first place in all of those categories. You can see a picture of this guy below.

Personally I don't see what all the hype is about, but I am not looking at the guy though they eyes of a Japanese woman. Kimutaku is part of a Japanese music group called SMAP. They are mighty famous in Japan. Almost everyone knows just about all of the songs put out by SMAP. Below you can see one of their more popular songs.

Any way, it is now time for the word of the day. Today's word is 好き(すき). It is pronounced suki and means love. I think those awards are rigged.

That's it for today. See you next time at JJNN.


  1. Everyone in that group does. I guess that is what Japanese woman like. Maybe I should learn from that lesson (not bloody likely!)

  2. Bloody???? Did you move to England and not tell me :)

  3. 'ello gov; All "teen" heart-throbs look like women... Just look at the stupid groups here!

  4. The number of british people in my office almost outnumbers the number of American people. Things like that tend to rub off.

    The thing about this group is that not only teens worship them but fully grown women. I refuse to look like that just to get a date!
