“Hana no Ato” Movie Premiere

Yesterday, actress Kitagawa Keiko made an appearance at the premiere event of her new movie Hana no Ato, wearing a gorgeous Spring themed kimono painted with sakura. Prior to filming, she underwent six months of physical training for the fighting scenes in the movie. When she saw the incredible amount of people that showed up to express their support, Keiko was extremely touched and her eyes became misty with tears. Afterwards, previously rumored boyfriend (Shuntaro Miyao) and other cast mates presented her with a sakura-shaped cake. Keiko was so happy, her smile was beaming from ear to ear.

Regarding her private life, Kitagawa Keiko is rumored to be dating celebrity idol Yamashita Tomohisa. The day before, Keiko did a TV interview and was asked to describe what her ideal boyfriend would be like. Patrons of the internet pointed out that her answer accurately described Yamashita Tomohisa. Just two nights ago, Yamashita and his group NEWS appeared on the TV program MUSIC STATION to promote their new single, Sakura Girl.

    Wow, that Kimono is STUNNING! Thank you for all of the pictures, they were great to view!

    Your Chinese proficiency is excellent, Lisa, even tho you’re not living (nor learning it, I guess) in Chinese societies around East Asia. ^^ I always think she & Yamapi can make a cute couple, & I also believe he’s also a deeper person than what his current boys band’s heartthrob image suggests. BTW, I love the Chinese translation of the movie’s title – very poetic & much better than the English one.

    Congrats Kei-chan for the successful national opening! ^^

    That kimono really is gorgeous! Maybe it’s thanks to the lighting but wow, it has a really nice shine.

    I definitely look forward to watching this. Saw Hitsudan Hostess in January and Keiko-chan did a fantastic job, even better than in Buzzer Beat. And I’m completely convinced Keiko-chan and Yamapi have been and are still dating. No one can tell me otherwise until they get married, though that has nothing to do with this movie, lol. :P

    Here’s to cheering for another successful Keiko-chan show. :)

    I always think Keiko can afford to get married at an earlier age since her target audience are mostly females, hence her marital status doesn’t have any significant impact on her career. So it all depends on her personal preference on whether to marry earlier or later.

    @ Elly – I totally agree! That kimono is to die for! I don’t even wanna think about the price tag on that thing. Its just so beautiful! >____<!!!

    @ Rika-Chicchi – =) My Chinese is okay. My parents were really strict about me learning Chinese when I was younger. I got sent to English school in the mornings, and Chinese school in the late afternoons. Now, my english is only so-so, and my chinese is only so-so. XD I don’t sound good in any language at all. Haha.

    @ Annisa – I’m actually quite convinced they’re dating too. I remember my friend Sade sending me some paparazzi images of Keiko and Yamapi holding hands, or something like that. Its so cute! They have so much chemistry. I hope they really are dating! They’re having pretty babies dammit! >__<!!!

  7. Rika-Chicchi says:

    If Keiko & Yamapi are really together, then I don’t think Keiko could get married any time soon. XD

  8. Lisa says:

    @ Rika-Chicchi – Hahaha. Yamapi’s fan girls would commit murder…!!
