Re: J-Star: 木村拓哉 Kimura Takuya


Hi, Peggy:
I came across these pages of Kimura photos by accident, while I was surfing for more Huang Xiao Ming’s info…. .. A total of 100 pages of his photos were stored in this Chinese web site.

木村拓哉Photos

These probably are some old pictures of him that you’ve already seen before.. But if not, enjoy. This one I like a lot. .......KAKKOI.....Image

Re: J-Star: 木村拓哉 Kimura Takuya


Dear pandapop,

Well so far I reached to page 20. Have to admit that I found about four photos that I did not have.

I have to stop now and go and get something to eat. Need nourishment to go through the remaining eighty pages....

I have to say that my addiction to Kimura san is well established in my mind and heart and in my Documents...... Have a little something to mention when I get back.

pandapop.

Before I forget...Kimura san did some very naughty commercial photos with a non Asian model a long time ago. They have been posted on the internet simply because they were ads. However, you have to look at them very carefully to see that nothing is really wrong but the photographer is very clever with his camera.
I think this is one shoot that Kimura san must have really enjoyed.

J-Star: 木村拓哉 Kimura Takuya


I read somewhere that Kimura is going to appear in a Hollywood movie next year. Did someone mention that already? If so what movie? He will not be the lead is all I can remember.

Hi Ralph,

I believe it is called I Come With The Rain, and according to IMBD, it's still in production.

Re: J-Star: 木村拓哉 Kimura Takuya


re Kimura and the drama 'The Family'


Once again I was truly amazed at the very end of the shooting scene when Kimura san suddenly opened his eyes so very wide just as he pulled the trigger with his toe. Such intensity as he made his final commitment was once again the power of his awareness of using his eyes to communicate.
'The Family' will be a keeper for many years and a feather in Kimura's cap I think.

In order to see his versatility it is also eye opening to see his samurai in 'Love and Honour' (Bushido no Ichibun).

Re: J-Star: 木村拓哉 Kimura Takuya


An interesting article on Kimura Takuya and Lee Byung Hun...

The Electric New Paper, Singapore
November 22, 2007

Kimchi vs Sushi
Japanese idol Takuya Kimura may be the main dish of the movie Hero. But will Korean hunk Lee Byung Hun provide the flavour? CHANG MAY CHOON finds out

Image
LEE BYUNG HUN, 37 and TAKUYA KIMURA, 35

LEE BYUNG HUN
Real life: An accomplished Korean actor who speaks fluent English and French, Byung Hun is slated to make inroads into Hollywood. He's hailed as the Prince Of Smiles in Japan, where he sold out 60,000 tickets in an ongoing four-part concert tour.

Byung Hun is reportedly single now, after ending a one-year relationship with his All In co-star Song Hye Gyo in 2004.

Alter ego in Hero: Byung Hun plays an elite Korean prosecutor who helps Takuya locate an important piece of evidence - a van that was illegally exported to Pusan.

Director Suzuki Masayuki told the Korean media recently that Byung Hun's screen time is short (just two minutes) but he plays a 'strong, heavyweight role'.

'Lee is explosively popular in Japan and is known to have a 'pretty smile'. He was really the only one I had in mind for the casting.'

Most memorable scene: When he deftly subdues a baddie in a rare action scene. Then, with a knowing grin, he gives Takuya a crucial word of advice that links to the ending.

On working with Takuya: Byung Hun said: 'In the past, when I didn't know much about Japanese film culture, I visited Japan to shoot a music video. Everywhere I went, I saw advertisement boards with this handsome man, who I later learned was Kimura. It gave me a strong impression of the actor.'

Critics say: Byung Hun is suave and macho, but, alas, he has so little screen time.

Five of the critics whom The New Paper spoke to agreed that Byung Hun's talent was 'wasted'.

UW magazine journalist Tina Tan said he appears more macho compared to Takuya's 'idol look' and his newly-grown moustache is 'a bit charming'.

'There was so much media hype over this Japan heavenly king meets Korean heavenly king collaboration, but Lee is really under-utilised here. This is a movie about Takuya and he's the star, so Lee would lose out.'

Production manager Xie Suyan said she was expecting Takuya and Byung Hun to spar in court representing their own countries, but felt disappointed that they did not.

FM 96.3 reporter Junko Hayashi felt it was 'unfair' for Byung Hun to play such a shallow character, and that he deserved more because 'he's really a great actor'.

But Radio 1003 deejay Luo Kemin argued that Byung Hun's charismatic presence was like the 'caviar on an already great dish'.

'His performance was short but exciting, and his eyes spoke volumes while he was giving (Takuya and Takako) his blessings.

'A great actor doesn't need to take up the main role or occupy a lot of screen time. It's a Japanese movie so there's more sushi than kimchi, but the kimchi definitely added flavour to it.'

TAKUYA KIMURA

Real life: A member of boy band Smap, Takuya acts, sings and hosts.

He's been hailed as Japan's sexiest man and King Of Drama - due to his unbeatable ratings appeal.

Married to singer Shizuka Kudo, Takuya is a doting dad to two girls - Kokomi, 6, and Mitsuki, 4.

Alter ego in Hero: Takuya plays a delinquent-turned- prosecutor who unravels cases with his unorthodox ways, with the help of his loyal assistant played by Takako Matsu.

A shopping channel fanatic, he returns to the Tokyo office after six years and is given a seemingly simple manslaughter case that turns out to be linked to a political conspiracy.

Takuya is the only choice for the role, since it was he who popularised the renegade character in the 2001 drama version that scored a record-high average rating.

Most memorable scene: Too many campy moments, like him jumping around the office with a spiky waist-slimming gadget he ordered from his favourite shopping channel.

But the one scene that moves many to tears is his moving speech in court, demanding that the truth to be delivered to the victim's fiancee.

On working with Byung Hun: Takuya said: 'I've seen a lot of commercials by Lee in Japan. He has this angelic smile and is a powerful actor who has a huge impact on the audience. Simply working with him in the same place and same time will be a great honour.'

Critics say: Takuya, who commands the entire two hours of the film, has matured in his acting. He has a way of pulling at heartstrings while inducing giggles with his quirky antics.

Because of this, he has won over new fans, including Lianhe Wanbao journalist Yee Wanyu, who, until she watched Hero, never understood why this 'skinny guy whom I don't think is good looking is so popular'.

She was pleasantly surprised by Takuya's natural comic timing, and 'now I think he's quite cute, even at (age) 35'.

Another converted fan is Radio 1003 deejay Luo Kemin, whose impression of Takuya has changed from 'don't know why so many girls are obsessed with him' to 'he's 100 times cute'.

'He's a natural born star and he makes his comic character come alive. I was touched by how he focused on doing one thing - to bring the murderer to justice.'

FM 96.3 reporter Junko Hayashi said she cried three times because she was deeply moved by Takuya's acting.

'He has become a great actor and he has a very realistic style. He has improved 100 per cent since the drama, and he has good chemistry with the rest of the cast.'

Production manager Xie Suyan added that Takuya, although not handsome, has a certain charisma on screen and an ability to humanise his characters.

'He adds little gestures that are so charming to a girl, you'll definitely fall in love with his character.'

# Hero opens in theatres here tomorrow.

WHEN THEY NEXT MEET...

Interestingly, the situation gets reversed in their next collaboration, a Hollywood movie entitled "I Come With The Rain," which is currently being filmed.

Byung Hun plays the leading role of a triad boss opposite Josh Harnett's retired cop, while Takuya plays the minor role of kidnap victim.

J-Star: 木村拓哉 Kimura Takuya


Thank you so much for the great article! I just loved it, and it had a lot of interesting information for Kimura lovers like me.

I think the whole issue of who is wasted, who has the bigger part in this movie as opposed to the next movie is just journalistic hype. These are obviously two great actors with a lot of charisma, and each took a lesser role because he cares more for the artistic challenge than about exercising his ego.
