KinKi Kids World is for all English-speaking KinKi Kids fans who, despite the language barrier, have found themselves falling in love with KinKi Kids and their music, this is my humble attempt to bring us all closer to the world of KinKi Kids - Domoto Tsuyoshi 堂本刚 (244) and Domoto Koichi 堂本光一(51).

The contents of this blog are based primarily on contents found in other Chinese blogs, as I have only just started learning Japanese (which is とても むずがしです i.e. very difficult). I wish to thank all the Chinese Kinki Kids fans for their hard work and efforts in translating the Japanese materials/information on the KinKi Kids.

Tsuyoshi is singing the theme song 「昴-すばる-」for TBS special!!!

TBS will be broadcasting on 3 Nov 2009 a special feature called 『JNN50周年記念 歴史大河スペクタクル唐招提寺1200年の謎~天平を駆けぬけた男と女たち』(I think the translation is『JNN 50th Anniversary In Memory of the Spectacular Historical Saga of Toshadai Temple's 1200-year Mystery - Men & Women of Tempyou era who [raced?]』......well, I might be wrong).

Tsuyoshi will be singing the theme song 「昴-すばる-」(Subaru, which means the Pleiades constellation), the famous song of 谷村新司 (Shinji Tanimura) . The moment I heard Tsuyoshi sang the song, I went "Ah!!! I know this tune!!!" I understand that this Japanese song has actually been re-enacted by a few Chinese and Cantonese singers! Anyway, I know this tune well because it's one of my parents' fave Chinese oldies!

Thanks for the clips. I hope we can listen to the whole song.

I'm a bit worried because the song and the original singer was so famous.. though I know that everyone has their own style/way of singing.
