I have three favorite artists: Brian Froud, John William Waterhouse (I only have two of his prints. I'm planning to buy loads more when I get to Portland), and Yoshitaka Amano (if you are into anime you might have heard of him. He's the Visual Concept designer for Final Fantasy, and character desin for vampire hunter D.)
I own Hiten, Dream Hunter, Tsuki no Ou (Moon King), and I'm waiting to receive Worlds of Amano in the mail. So, I'm scoping out more of his books on ebay, but today ebay won't let me access my account. My login/password may be incorrect. I'm confuddled. So, I go through this whole dance of getting a new password, then I'm alerted that my account is restricted. I get to talk to an ebay person and I find out that someone had used to account to send unsolicited emails to other users *bangs head on table*.
I'm a huge manga, anime fan. I also have a weakness for Drama's. I tend to watch more K-drama's (korean drama's) since one of my sister's is living in South Korea. She had studied in sweden about three years ago when she came back she was telling me about this K-drama she had watched over there (she had a room mate who was korean). It sounded like one of my favorite Manwha's (manwha are manga's from Korea). It was. Goong was the name of it. Well, Joo Ji Hoon place the lead male character. One of my favorite's to be honest.
Last weekend I was talking to my sister and she had heard that Joo Ji Hoon was arrested for drug possession. Inside I was all 'noooo! Not my Joo-joo!' I had just reasoned that maybe it was just pot he was in possession in. Nope. Apparently, he is charged with drug use (early on I had heard that he was charged for drug trafficking of ketamine and ecstasy). But he had a movie coming out this month and it's been 'postponed indefinitely'; Tokyo Towers is a new show he's going to be doing. I don't know if they've just started filming or anything. But he has been dropped from the cast and the production company might find someone else. I guess a lot of Japanese investors have put up funds for Joo Ji Hoon to be in it at least a few billion wons which in US money would be a few thousand dollars.
A industry rep was quoted as saying, “Before the drug case, Joo Ji-hoon was deemed an actor with enough name value to bring in investments. The atmosphere has completely reversed now.”
