One in A Million: YamaPi’s new song

I was not really waiting for this new song. Actually, I had no idea he was going to release another one after Loveless. I mean, I haven’t been around JPop lately, but I think I’m aware that NEWS hasn’t release any new songs lately.

Pi, don’t be the second Jin. Although I think I wouldn’t mind, but you create joyful songs with NEWS, and I love your Akira style/personality the most.

Anyway, the tune of the song was fine. I find it catchy. But I like Loveless more. It’s a club/dance song so I think I’ll get tired of it soon enough. Plus I’m not really fond of auto-tuning that’s popular these days. And the fact that Pi’s voice is his least flattering trait, at least in my opinion. The PV was a different story. He should have danced more. As most people said, that’s one of his selling points. There should have been more chemistry between the two because, uh, the song says she’s supposed to be ‘one in a million.’ The story approached me as a one night stand video that claims the girl as the ONE woman Pi will sleep with that night, and a couple of nights after. But not really in a romantic ‘One in A Million’ way whom he’ll sacrifice his own life for later on.

I was expecting a cheesier video, one similar with that of Rain’s (minus the strip/pole dancing part) Love Song. But too much for expecting.


KariPi or PiRina?

Although the news was out for about 3 months already, I thought I’d give out my opinion. I really love both of them!

Ever since I saw Karina as the Onee-san in Koizora, I had always seen her as someone beautiful. And then I saw her in Love shuffle, along with a more refined acting skill as she was one of the lead characters. Now I get all jumpy knowing that she’ll be starring a movie with Yamashita Tomohisa.

KariPi or PiRina? Whatever the pairing name shall be, I’m happy to see both of them acting together again. I just hope Karina gets a decent starring role – I mean, the title is “Ashita no Joe”and it will definitely focus more on Yamashita. I wish it wouldn’t be the second Kurosagi Movie in which Horikita Maki only got like a 5-minute screen time.

Anyway, I’m not hoping for any romantic off-screen story, because I think Yamapi is happy with Kitagawa Keiko. And Karina deserves someone else. Don’t get me wrong, I love Yamapi to bits (just that I think Karina deserves someone better! XD )!

And we can’t always expect onscreen partners to be lovers in real life.
