I know, I know… I’m being lazy.
By the way, by the time of posting this, I’m probably away taking photos at a concert. This is a scheduled post because I wanted Maggie Cheung as the first post for a little longer… xD
I usually post one thing per post, but there’s too much Yu to post –
all via aoinohoho’s Yu-dedicated JP blog.
Rumors that NHK’s future 2011 (I know, I know… so far ahead) Taiga drama (a la Yoshitsune, Atsuhime) would be centered around three sisters… The Three Asai Sisters (?). They throw in some names like Masami Nagasawa and Aya Ueto, but seem positively (?) more thrilled to throw in Yu’s name xD – though you know, it IS a Google Translate.
Me on the other hand… I loved Atsuhime… a strong female who moved the pieces in this game of life. That may have had to do with the high ratings the show got alongside the writing, and production values. So the prospect of Yu on a Taiga drama thrills me. For one thing, I will be able to watch her once a week on my TV for a year. LOL – but then, that will mean a decrease on films… *eek!*
Apparently (this is old old news), FRaU Magazine had a list Yu’s 10 Best Films~
Some interesting choices there!
3 films in English made it to her list…
- White Oleander (2002)
- 2:37 (2006) [starring fellow Teresa Palmer of December Boys, Daniel Radcliffe fame]
- Almost Famous (2000)
And the rest are Asian… though I’ve only heard of Sway (with fellow Joe Odagiri), which I wanna watch.
- Like Asura (2003)
- Memories of Murder (2003)
- The Hidden Blade (2004)
- Yi Yi: A One and a Two (2000) [actually, I think I’ve heard of this before]
- Kaza-hana (2000) [hmm… no English title. with fellow Kyoko Koizumi]
aoinohoho uploaded this 9min video of… Yu talking about a book? Book reading?
Oh yeah, and did I mention my mom loves Yu? She told me that tonight… again. LOL
