KinKi Kids

Because I always think fondly of that day when I met you
No matter when I've walked believing that we'll be together
A sudden song called upon so many miracles, didn't it?
The fluttering wind carries a small love, finally arriving to passionate love

A tone playing, from that voice comes
A soft rhapsody
In your sweet and lonely singing voice
At the middle of this road, I fell in love...

Rhapsody - KinKi Kids

Well, it's actually their 19th Anniversary but they wanted to celebrate it one whole year starting today. As a fan, I'm just so happy to see this much attention given to them considering their 15th Anniversary was rather simple with no arena tours announced that particular year (they only did their usual year end dome tour). As they are one of Johnny-san's most favorite groups, given them this much attention is only appropriate.

Because of this special day, I decided to take pictures of my KinKi Kids collection over the years. ^^v


The top shelf is their singles from Garasu no Shonen until ~. I mostly collected the limited edition ones but I started collecting all versions starting from Family ~Hitotsu ni Naru Koto single. I mostly proud of my collection for the limited edition singles circa 2003 to 2008 as to get them nowadays is almost impossible esp for international fans.

The second shelf is their albums and concert DVDs. I particularly love KinKi's concert DVDs' covers since they usually so pretty and about the same size, so its always nice to arrange them side by side. For concert DVDs, I also get the limited edition versions as Ko-chan's birthday MCs every year are too priceless. I always feel bitter that they only release concert DVDs regularly every year only after their Phi concert. I want their G concert DVD so bad but J&A never release it. DX

Speaking of songs, I have too many favorites from them but I try to pick my favourite 3:

Single Songs:
1. Ao no Jidai (First love. The first KinKi song I ever heard and fell in love with and it stays special in my heart until today.)
2. Hakka Candy (I SUPER LOVE THIS SONG. Everything about the song is perfect esp their voices at that time.)
3. Kagi no Nai Hako (A fairly recent single of theirs. When I first heard the song, there's no turning back since the song is truly awesome especially the lyrcis. KinKi had many amazing singles so its hard to chose favourites tbh. I didnt include Anniversary, Ne, Ganbaru yo or Jonetsu that I super love as well)

Coupling Songs:
1. Yukimushi (Yukimushi translated as 'Snow Bug' in English haha. But the song is so sad about waiting for your loved one to come back home and the lyrics used 'Snow Bug' to show how time has passed and how long the wait has becomes.)
2. Kimi to Boku no Uta (Cute song with a very nice melody accompany it. I just cant stop listening to it when it first released.)
3. Seppaku no Tsuki (All KinKi fans must love this song. It got #3 for their 39 album despite it being a coupling song. The way they ended the song; 'When you weren't around, I knew the meaning of happiness, for the first time.' is just too cruel. Satomi is truly a pro in writing really awesome love songs.)

Album Songs:
1. Rhapsody (Probably my favourite song ever. Could listen to it nonstop. The lyrics literally describe the love I experienced with KinKi (as a fan). :P)
2. I Will (The lyrics is sooo sad. Basically the song is about telling your loved one to stay strong even when you are gone. I think I cried the most listening to this song lmao.)
3. Kono Mama Te Wo Tsunaide / Setsunai Koi ni Kizuite (Can't choose between this two. Kono Mama Te Wo Tsunaide because I want to keep holding Tsuyo's hand. :P While Setsunai Koi ni Kizuite because it's the first sad ballad song that they sing which later become their main expertise. :P Such a beautiful song with really sad lyrics.)

Basically all Ko-chan's releases (the rest of his albums are behind his mirror album). Again, for their individual works, I mostly collect the limited edition versions. Since Ko-chan didn't release solo works as much as Tsuyo, I didn't spent a lot on him. :P For my favourite song of Ko-chan, its Spica. hahaha I bet many people didn't know about this song.

Tsuyo's singles and albums starting from Domoto Tsuyoshi, ENDLICHERI☆ENDLICHERI, 244 Endli-x, Tsuyo-shi, and Domoto Tsuyoshi again. I love his WAVER cover so much that's why I put it in the front. The rest of his 10++ singles are behind the WAVER single while his limited edition albums are arranged at the side. Original Color is my favourite song from him.


Out of all my KinKi collections, I think I most proud of my concert pamphlets collection. :D This is because the pamphlets are sooooo big (double the size of normal book) and the photoshoots in there are among the best KinKi has ever done. I love their 1999 Summer Concert pamphlet as Tsuyo has his To Heart's hair at that time. :P And Their D concert (upper right), has their best photoshoot to date. The cover may look very simple but the pictures inside are very awesome.

Aside from the big size of the pamphlets, KinKi used many different design / texture for the pamphlets. Take the plastic ice cube pamphlet for an example. Or the velvet texture of their 1999-2000 Winter Concert pamphlet. I love that they try to be creative with the designs each year.

I LOVE the classic hardcover pamphlet of ~ fond de Anniversary ~ Dome Tour or the file type package of their 24/7 G Tour pamphlet.

Over the years, unfortunately their concert pamphlets have become smaller with the evidence of H and I concert pamphlets (which is the size of normal book). Their 10th Anniversary Concert has plastic package on it while KinKi You Tour pamphlets are hardcover with some really pretty studio pictures (white cover) and concert pictures (red cover) inside.

J Concert Tour pamphlet is hands down the most pretty pamphlets they have ever released. Not only for it elegant simple design, it is big in size, it is hardcover and there is pretty ribbon on the side of the opening. While I LOOOVE the photoshoot in King.KinKi Kids concert pamphlet.

-Thank you for 15 years- concert pamphlet photoshoot is among my favourites as well. And L concert pamphlet has a truly creative design. While their latest 2015-2016 concert pamphlet's photoshoot is sooo pretty (despite the simple black cover). I really love the black and white concept they did at that time.


Okay, I tried to collect one item per concert but I obviously fail haha. I kinda stop at K concert since to get stuffs from that concert particularly difficult at that year. I obviously love Tsuyo's Bigaku concert goods so I bought 3 of those; the deer strap, tea cup and t-shirt (which is like the most pretty concert t-shirt ever :P). ^^v


Basically all books & photobooks KinKi has ever released~ I'm so happy to get my hand on their first photobook (the age of the book now is like 20 years? :O)! Since the cover is scandalous (haha) and I dont want to be accused as hentai by anyone, I throw away their shirtless cover. :P

I proudly have all books and photobooks Tsuyo has ever released including his illustration storybooks featuring his late dog, Kenshiro. T___T


I managed to get mostly all Tsuyo's drama licensed DVDs that ever released even including his drama SPs. Ko-chan's dramas seemed to be less popular so I only got 2 of those. For their dramas together, I only managed to get Wakaba no Koro. All these are English subbed btw. Talking about favourite drama from them (solo or together), it got to be the amaaaazing Summer Snow. Summer Snow is truly one of the very best Japanese dramas I have ever watched. Everything about the drama is amazing even the sad ending. ;_;

There, all my collections over the years. Since I'm a perfectionist, I tend to collect everything. That is why sometimes, I do spent a lot to complete my collection -- this is a bad habit that I know I must get rid of. :P I can't wait to see their 20th Anniversary Tour pamphlet! I hope they will release 2 versions of the pamphlets like they did 8 years ago with KinKi You Tour. :DDD

Despite many years has passed, Arase-sensei still remain the coolest character in Iryu. He still make me excited eveytime he appear on screen.

The first and the fourth seasons of Iryu is definitely my favourites. I wish many more Jdramas will produce quality medical dramas like this! ♥

I finally watched Ryo's Inu wo Kau to Iu Koto! :) I'm actually in the middle of Ryo's dramas marathon right now. His dramas' ratings are of course not as high as SMAP or Arashi's members but his dramas' choices are definately interesting and my cup of tea. This drama is among the consecutive dramas where he played a father. I make jokes on how Johnny-san probably do this on purpose to prepare the fans ahaha.

Okay, back to the drama, I'm basically 3 years late but I think this is probably the saddest drama I have ever seen. I'm weak when it comes to dramas/movies on animals and I should have known this before I start this one. By the time the drama reached it's climax, I cried so much that I had difficulty breathing lol. I'm not a crying type so this is definately new for me. The part where Sky roamed the house and reminisce the times she is together with the family had me in a complete tears. The part where she lay sick and about to die is just too horrid for me. Now I felt like I truly loss a pet and I can cry just when I think about her. T_T

I thought the writer is pretty awesome. The parts everytime the girl gave monologue 'asking question to Sky' were filled with sad words. It makes the viewers feel how big is Sky's role in the family. :'(''''

I legit have to watch consecutive Arashi's performance after watching the last episode. :P Watching something and get scarred for life is not a wise thing to do obviously..

Just finished watching the whole award show (of course with fast forwarding :P) but I guess what make me the happiest is the fact that the Jangs won MBC Best Couple award. Not that I question their chemistry since honestly, they have like one of the best chemistry I have ever seen in my years of watching Kdramas but these award shows usually award dramas with high ratings so for the netizen to choose them out of the other couples made me so happy. I always think MBC best couple is more prestigious than KBS since MBC only award one couple while KBS 5 couples. I wanted them so bad to win it and they did! ;_;

I'm so proud of Jang Hyuk too for bagging Top Excellent Award for Miniseries. I'm nervous about his winning since he is against some really tough competition and previous Daesang winners; Shin Hakyun & Kim Myungmin. And to win against them and Gam Woosung is just an honour since all these are really some of the very best actors in the industry. And Jang Nara is soo cute with her crying. Her Top Excellent Award is a sure win in my opinion but the fact that she cried the whole of her long winning speech shows how grateful she was for it.

All in all I'm just glad my fave drama of the year got the recognition that they deserved. The ratings when the drama was aired is very disappointing for the quality that it has to offer but for MBC to award it in the end just make me a happy fangirl. :D

I think the biggest shock of the award show is how the second girl in Jang Bori won the Daesang. :O If any evil character-actress should win a Daesang, in should be Lee Soyeon and her string of evil characters.
