Eita and Kimura Kaela are expecting their second child to be born in November this year after announcing on 14 May that Kimura is currently 5 months' pregnant. Kimura who is celebrating her 9th anniversary as a singer, is currently busy with preparations to set up her own record label by 23 June and only found out about the pregnancy two months ago through a body checkup after she finished her concert tour in early April. The couple have a son who's two years old and have been frequently seen going to their neighbourhood park together. Eita is scheduled to appear in the Noda Hideki play "MIWA" between 4 October and 24 November when Kimura is due to give birth but he is expected to take some time off to witness the birth of his child like what he did in October 2010 during the birth of his son.
A blood-soaked vengeance tale from Japan drew the biggest boos in the race for the Cannes Film Festival’s top prize Monday, with critics savaging a “risible” parade of cliches.
Japanese director Takashi Miike unveiled “Shield of Straw” (Wara No Tate) about a nationwide bounty hunt for a child rapist who murders the seven-year-old granddaughter of a billionaire politician.
The man offers a 1 billion yen reward for the criminal’s capture and killing. The offer touches off a frenzy in the country, sending hordes of would-be vigilantes on the chase for the murderer.
Fearing for his life, the killer turns himself in and a team of cops—a widower whose wife was killed by a drunk driver and a single mother—see it as their duty to protect him at all costs despite his crimes.
But they must fend off all manner of armed assailants—some driven by greed for the reward and others, crime victims themselves who feel let down by the system, by a desire for a delayed sense of justice.
The picture, one of 20 vying for the Palme d’Or award, got off to a promising start with impromptu applause for a spectacular ambush scene executed with military precision.
He says they only met for coffee. She says they are just friends. Both their entertainment agencies say that the fact that 2PM's Taecyeon and Girls Generation's Jessica met up recently in Japan does not mean they are dating. And yet the rumors keep on circulating.
In fact, rumors about the singer/actor and singer/actress dating have been circulating since 2010. And that's how long everyone involved has been denying them.
When Taecyeon recently appeared on the MBC talk show "Radio Star," to promote 2PM's comeback with the singles, "Come Back When You Hear This Song" and "A.D.T.O.Y." he tried to explain the photographs taken of them in Japan.

The official website for Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine announced on Tuesday that Eiichiro Oda's One Piece manga would be going on hiatus for the magazine's next two issues. The magazine's editors explained that the manga creator is being hospitalized for a peritonsillar abscess, a complication due to an infection frequently caused by tonsillitis. One Piece will not be serialized in the magazine issues that ship on May 27 and June 3, but the manga is expected to return on June 10.
The editors also noted that One Piece will still be listed on the survey postcard in the next issue, since the postcard was already printed before Oda's hospitalization. Next Monday's issue lists "tonsilitis" as the name of the illness, but the editors clarified that "peritonsillar abscess" is the correct term. Shueisha apologized to fans who were looking forward to the next chapter, and asked them to keep supporting One Piece in the future.
With anime for fujoshi on the rise, fans found it necessary to create this ranking of the anime most loved by the fairer sex, but fore whatever reasons widely loathed or at least studiously ignored by most males.

The other day, we half-joked about "Anchorman: The Legend Continues" being our most anticipated for the rest of the year. Of course, we are desperately counting the days until the comedy sequel arrives, but there are films that are probably a little higher on our watch-list. And perhaps at the very top is Bong Joon-Ho's "Snowpiercer."
The Korean filmmaker, who was behind "Memories of Murder," "The Host" (the good one, not the Stephenie Meyer one) and "Mother" is one of the most exciting filmmakers in the world right now, so we've been following his English-language debut with eagle-eyes ever since it was announced, and even more so since he started to assemble a killer international cast. But the closer the film gets, and the more we see of it, the more desperate the wait for it becomes, and that's true of the latest batch of photos and posters for the movie that just arrived.

The Gangnam police station commented on May 22, “A used briquet, an empty bottle of sleeping pills and a suicide note was discovered in the car,” and “We assume that this is a suicide.” It has been reported that the suicide note contained information about the deceased’s debts and other self-pessimistic messages.
Son Ho Young’s reps reported on May 22, “On May 21, Son Ho Young was in the Gangnam Police Station from 10PM to 12AM to be investigated. Before he received a call from the police, he did not know about this at all.”
According to Son Ho Young’s official statement, the deceased was in a serious relationship with Son Ho Young for a year and was a non-celebrity.
The car is Son Ho Young’s personal vehicle, a Kia Carnival, which was purchased for his work activities. It is known that he lent the car to the deceased multiple times for driving practice purposes. Son Ho Young’s reps also commented, “Due to Son Ho Young’s preparations for his upcoming album, he has gotten busier. This caused him to have minor arguments with the deceased but it wasn’t to the point where something this big could happen.”
Son Ho Young is reported to be in an extreme state of shock, as he had no knowledge or predictions about this event. So he is not able to continue on with his activities such as the radio show “2 O’clock Date” and the sitcom, “Pure Love.”
His reps also mentioned, “We apologize for causing worry through this bad news. We sincerely ask that the media won’t publish unconfirmed assumptions for the sake of the deceased and her family. Finally, we offer our deepest condolences to the deceased.”
On May 21, Son Ho Young’s vehicle was discovered illegally parked in Gangnam. When a tow truck came to tow the car away, the driver of the truck discovered a dead female inside and then immediately called the police.
On May 20, T-ara N4 held a press conference regarding their advancement to the US market. Eunjung announced, “There will be five different versions of our new title song ‘Countryside Diaries.’ The original song features SPEED‘s Taewoon. The five new versions will have Chris Brown, Snoop Dog, Ray Jay, Wiz Kalifa, and T-Pain doing Taewoon’s part. The songs will be released in the US and Korea simultaneously.”
