Yamamoto Yusuke
More on Secret Vacation

Yamamoto Yusuke startled out of bed, in cosplay, a wedding !? 100 shots carefully selected from 10000 taken !

In commemoration of the launch of his second photobook Secret Vacation, Yamamoto Yusuke attended a meet and greet handshake event in Tokyo on the 7th.

The theme of the book is "first trip abroad" with a lover and filming took place in Guam. It was his first trip abroad personally too. "Spending time in Guam was really fun but I couldn't get used to the food at all... We ate just meat so it sat pretty heavily on my stomach," he said. About the photo sessions, he cheerfully revealed,"The cameraman was a guy but during the shoot, he was like a girl, he'll say things like 'Yusuke kawaii!!' so it was easy to do with that that kind of mood."

In this book, there are photos taken by the cameraman as he sneaked into Yamamoto's room in the early hours of the morning. Yamamoto said a little shyly in his appeal, "They're genuine shots of me just getting up you know~. The cameraman did it without me knowing beforehand, he got onto my bed and took the photos. There's a lot of the real me in the book." He tried out cosplay too. "Police uniform, straddling a bike, feeling like Kimura Takuya-san in pilot suit, things like that *laugh*. We did it with the co-operation of the locals." There is also a wedding rehearsal scene in a church, Yamamoto can be seen in various situations in this book.

Furthermore, one person will be chosen in a lottery from among those who buy this book and a pair ring that was used during the photo shoot will be delivered to the winner. The initials of Yamamoto and the winner will be engraved on the ring and Yamamoto himself will deliver it to the winner's home. He said, "I look forward to bringing the ring over."

Yes, the PR stunt worked. I needed to know more of how it all went down. Now I feel a little regret. When I see the photobook, all I'll think of is the cameraman who took them. And Yukke looks like he's all ribs here (°_°;)

Matsuda Shota

Matsuda's birthday congratulations during Ikigami press conference

Actors Matsuda Shota (22), Yamada Takayuki (24) and actress Narumi Riko (16) attended a press conference for the movie Ikigami on the 8th of September.

In the story, Matsuda is given the task of informing people of their impending death 24 hours prior to it via a notice. What if it was he himself who received the notice ?

Matsuda said, "With my family, friends, lover and people like that around me, in a place where I feel loved, I want to die a sudden death."

As for Yamada, he said laughing, "I want to die smashed drunk. (I'm a hard drinker so) As expected, if I still have another 24 hours, I'll be alright."

In the evening, the preview was screened at the TOHO Cinema in Roppongi Hills. Matsuda who is celebrating his birthday on the 10th, was given a bouquet of flowers by Narumi. Matsuda said shyly, "I don't like (my birthday) to be celebrated, I prefer to enjoy it by myself."



Happy Bath Day Shota ! More photos in full post.
And congratulations CERN ! Here's to it not being a death notice for all Earthlings :|
