Apple In Your Eye (妹妹)Episode 4


Summary

An animation of the young Zhou Ji Wei and Dai Yao Qi at the secret place. Dai Yao Qi wanted to see the world differently . He mentioned to Zhou Ji Wei that he is looking for another dimension to escape. Zhou Ji Wei tried to imitate him but failed. Back to the present, Zhou Ji Wei parents know about her situation. She was reprimanded for being foolish enough to purchase those biscuits. 


On the way back to Taipei on the train, Dai Yao Qi was occupied with his game boy. He asked Zhou Ji Wei to continue the game while he go to the washroom. However, when he comes back, Zhou Ji Wei had already lost the game. In order to divert the attention,  Zhou Ji Wei suggest to play truth or dare. 

Dai Yao Qi started by asking Zhou Ji Wei why did she lied about the letters. She replied honestly that she like him. Dai Yao Qi looked at her with disbelieving eyes and ordered her to crawl on the floor. Zhou Ji Wei thought back at the past, how much hardship she went through in order to meet Dai Yao Qi. She wondered is it all worth it? She crawled embarrassedly on the floor while the other passengers laughed at her. However, there is something weird about Dai Yao Qi expression. 


Fang Shao Min wanted to go for a short trip with Dai Yao Qi. However, Dai Yao Qi is not keen on this idea. He suggested to visit some popular places in Taiwan and to try the famous foods at the market. He asked Zhou Ji Wei to be the "third wheel" and join them for this trip.

Zhou Ji Wei reluctantly joined them. She was fuming with jealousy while looking at the couple intimacy.  It was weird that everything that they ate was what Zhou Ji Wei wanted to try. It seems like Dai Yao Qi was carrying out what he had promised her. Zhou Ji Wei accidentally blunted the secret out while eating, to the dismay of Fang Shao Min. 


At home, she questioned Dai Yao Qi about this and she demanded to know his first girlfriend. Dai Yao Qi avoided answering this question. Zhang Shao Min was disappointed and she left the house. Alone, Dai Yao Qi played his game boy while the image of his mother appeared in his mind. The next day, Zhang Shao Min demanded an explanation about Zhou Ji Wei relationship with Dai Yao Qi. The latter assured her that their relationship is nothing more than siblings and Fang Shao Qi is his first love. 

However, Fang Shao Qi revealed to her that she heard from Dai Yao Qi friend that he had a girlfriend before they dated. Both of them were curious about this first girlfriend. After talking to her close friend, Fang Shao Min decided to reconciled with Dai Yao Qi.


Zhou Ji Wei decided to return to her hometown since nothing works out for her. Before she leave, she pays a visit to the elderly house. At the house, she met her benefactor who happens to be their grandson. They had a short conversation and the man insisted to send her off to show his gratitude. However, due to the numerous "memories things" in her bag, everything dropped out. The gentleman brought her a new bag to stuff all the memories. At the coffee house, they introduced their name. The gentleman name is Yuan Fang.


At home, Zhou Ji Wei accidentally realized a secret that her mother had hide from her all these years. Dai Yao Wei had purchased a pair of sports shoes for his first girlfriend many years ago while still studying in high school. She suspected that he had brought the shoes for her. However, due to her mother objection, they were seperated. 


Zhou Ji Wei mother admitted to being judemental to Dai Yao Qi and she did everything to protect them. Zhou Ji Wei refused to listen and dashed out of the house. A flashback to the past with the use of animation showed us that Dai Yao Qi hurt his leg and Zhou Ji Wei visited him. At the secret hideout, Zhou Ji Wei mentioned to Dai Yao Qi about the sports shoes that she desire. However, Dai Yao Qi did not give any response. After that there was another scene when Dai Yao Qi chased away Zhou Ji Wei secret admirer. 

My thoughts

I like the side story of Zhou family, Dai Yao Qi grandmother, the elderly couple , the workers at Dai Yao Qi eatery shop and Fang Shao Min close friend. They were all interlink into this story. The way the scriptwriter blended in family ties and friendship in the storyline was marvelous. 

There are times when we thought that we knew everything but the actual fact we don't. This episode talks about what we assumed from the surface of things. It was obvious that Dai Yao Qi tried to conceal his feelings for Zhou Ji Wei. He showed signs of having soft spots for Zhou Ji Wei. We can't blame Fang Shao Min for being cautious or paranoid about Zhou Ji Wei presence. 

Zhou Ji Wei is about to find out Dai Yao Qi hidden feelings for her. Actually, I think Zhou Ji Wei is being stubborn about love. She is contradictive as in wanting to prove that Dai Yao Qi love her before and insisting to find out despite knowing about Fang Shao Min.

I can't help but to pity the supporting cast since they will eventually be sacrifice when Zhou Ji Wei and Dai Yao Qi realized that they need each other. There is nobody that I particularly hated but Zhou Ji Wei still came across as the third party in someone else relationship. She is digging out the past just to state a point that they do love each other. 

We all know that Dai Yao Qi love Zhou Ji Wei and perhaps Fang Shao Min is just a subsitute? After watching this episode I am seriously suspicious of Dai Yao Qi love. He could be hiding many things in his heart and only time will reveal all these secrets. 

Yuan Fang and Zhou Ji Wei so coincidentally met again. It's so fated that they meet each other a couple of times till it is unrealistic. However, come to think of that a novel is mostly plain imagination. Therefore, this type of coincident may occur in a drama script but it does not always reflects on real life. Anyway, I look forward to their development which will further complicate this messy relationships.

Kashiwabara Takashi Weibo update: Expression in one's eyes is important for an actor




转发了 柏原崇 的微博:皆様ご無沙汰してます。!^^~ この度中国スタッフの方々から、書き込みの中で一つ気になる相談があったので是非回答をと要望がありました。 アドバイスになるかわかりませんが、僕なりにお答えさせていただきますね。 文が長くなると思うので、画像化して添付しておきます。 -柏原崇-

翻译: 大家好久不见。这次中国的工作人员给我发来苦恼中,其中的某个烦恼让我很上心。 虽然不知道有没有用,但我还是想给一些我个人的建议。 文章稍长,所以以图像的形式上传。 -柏原崇- 

Translation: Hello everyone, it had been a long time since we met. A fellow worker in China had send me a message about his problems, one of his worries raised my concern. Although I do not know if it is of any use, I still would like to offer some of my advice. The article is a little long, therefore I took a picture and post it online. -Kashiwabara Takashi-

The content of the article

I started to work in the show business from 17 years old till now, I have always held on to a belief. That is "expression in one's eyes". I was never trained in acting performance class. As a newbie, I was always scolded by the director while filming drama series. That was a difficult period of my life. At that time, the director taught me that it is alright not to possess any good points but you must not forget meaningful glance. Even if there is no time to rest, insufficient sleep, tired and restless, but the eyes must always be bright. I think the director is trying to convey this message to me - Even if you have no acting skills, no strong points, but your eyes must project motivation. 

In the showbiz, there will always be a stream of people who are good looking and have good body structure. I came across people that have longer legs than me and are tall. If I did not hear what the director says, I may feel inferior. However, after I listened to the advice from the director, I begin to place more emphasis on acting skills in compare to appearance. I believe in the power of expression in one's eyes. Subsequently, that will naturally transform into confidence. As a result, I begin to receive good drama script. Everyone have their own area of inferiority and there will be ways to overcome these inferiority.

Keep it up!!

The making of Takashi Kashiwabara cameo in Itazura Na Kiss - Love In Tokyo


Takashi Kashiwabara cameo in episode 15 of Itazura Na Kiss - Love In Toyko


Itazura Na Kiss - Love In Tokyo production crew were waiting for the arrival of Takashi Kashiwabara. It had been 17 years since the remake of this Japanese idol drama. Aiko Sato had cameo in the eariler episode of the drama as nurse Kotoko. 

Finally, Takashi Kashiwabara arrived at the scene. The director introduced him to everyone. He bowed humbly to the crew as he get ready for his cameo appearance. He is Naoki Irie for the day, as one of the crew member teased him.


Takashi Kashiwabara Interview:

I remembered during that time after we filmed this drama, we received many supports from fans in Japan when it was shown on TV.  Especially in Taiwan, the response was great. At the same time, I received many job opportunities in Taiwan. I received a lot of love and was well taken care of.  Therefore, with this feeling, I wanted to repay the kindness which I have received so I agreed to this cameo upon invitation. 

During that time, Teacher Kaoru Tada often came to visit us at the filming set. She would say to me, "You have the feeling of Naoki Irie." This comment had given me lots of courage.  I am thankful for that and I thought of repaying her kindness. 


Today the scene is about Naoki Irie going to give up his ambition. At the hospital, he crossed path with Takashi Kashiwabara who acted as a doctor.  He appeared to be deep in thoughts and turned around to look at him. 


Naoki Irie17 years ago 

In the manga, I felt that Naoki is a great character. I felt troubled after reading the manga. Because I have read the whole series of manga, I felt that as far as possible, Naoki cannot treat Kotoko too badly. He had to be cautious about it. 

Kiss NG scene

Kassy:   Oh is there?

Interviewer: Yes there is.

Kassy: Under the circumstances when both people are not very familar with each other, it felt a little bit weird.

During filming, I would discuss with my co-star Miss Aiko Sato regarding the kissing angle. After we settled on that, we will film the scene. When we finish filming, we will look through the scene again.


Yuki Furukawa as Naoki Irie

Before meeting the new Naoki, I was interest to find out about his appearance. After meeting him, I think Yuki Furukawa Kun has a tall build. He possess a charisma just like the character that walk out of a manga. I am extremely happy to meet the 2013 version of Naoki Irie and this drama which i have a cameo appearance will be ending soon. I hope everyone will continue to support the story of Naoki and Kotoko. Thank you very much. 






柏原崇 写真集 Part 10






你认为自己的短处是什麼?

太单纯。有时也会觉得是优点。不过因为单纯,容易被人骗。初中时有个很要好的朋友,周围人都传他各种不好的话,像"那家伙借东西从来不还"等等。我觉得他绝不会是那样的人,一直和他交往。那时候很流行super famycom,他说"只要借两天"时,我就信了他,二话没说借给他,结果那家伙拿了东西就失踪了,不来学校,也不回家。到现在,小事情上还是会常被骗,但像那次那麼惨的倒没有过。

有没有让你觉得"至少不能输给这个人"那样的对手?

嗯,还是会想到收史,他也总说不能败给我。我呢,从兄长的地位想,也不应该输给弟弟。还有一个人,中村龙,也不想输给他喔,我们是在"白线流"时认识的,也许以后会长期交往下去,希望在保持好朋友关系的同时,也成为好的竞争对手。

有没有让你痴迷的偶像?

宫泽理惠,真的非常喜欢她。初中时真是痴迷到极点,喜欢哪儿呢?喜欢她所有的一切。其实,她的唱片、年历,现在还在我的房间里,不过没有"santafue(她的裸体写真书名)",看是看过的。她拍裸照对我是非常大的打击。记得是在初二时候吧,第一次在报纸上看到这个消息时震惊的情形,至今记忆犹新。

这辈子想过什麼样的人生?

轻轻松松地生活,不说谎,不给自己多加任何压力....






柏原崇 写真集 Part 9
















在电视剧/广告中唱歌后,有人传言"柏原音痴",真相如何?

我去唱卡拉OK,大家都说"棒。太棒了!",哈哈~哈~~一般常唱"KOJI 1200"的"now romantic",想活跃气氛就会唱"暴风slmp"的"murida",大多和收史一起唱。不过在女孩面前会紧张,唱不来优美的歌,一向是唱baraetyi那一类的。

在意算命吗?

在意/不在意的都有,对日刊sports上每天登的都会很在意。父母家有订日刊sports,每天都会看,那个讲得很准,我蛮信的,到现在还看,其他的就基本不看,杂志上写的也不太看,别人告诉我"算命这样讲那样讲",我也会听一耳朵,但不会主动去找人算命,被占卜左右,有点可怕吧?

过去有没有想像到现在的自己?

有啊。还很小的时候了,记忆中隐约有过什麼时候我可能会拍电视这样一闪念的感觉,但当时没有谁特别对我说过什麼。也不是说对演员特别有兴趣。想想真有点不可思议,只是清楚记得不著边际的想到过。

在工作的地方和人吵过架吗?

常和社长吵架(笑),我非常感激社长对我说"按两人各50、50的意见行事",所以在工作上社长也让我自己发表意见的, 当然,社长也会明白说出他的意见,那就难免常会有冲突。到目前为止,最厉害的一次是在去年吧。大马路上两个人就大声争吵起来(笑),其实彼此都理解对方的意思,就是都硬头顽固不肯退让。不过,总用不著在马路上吵吧。(笑)








柏原崇 写真集 Part 8






将来希望成为什麼样的叔叔和爷爷?

像岩城滉一那样的老人,很帅吧。再说我也喜欢车,电视上看到岩城先生驾车的模样,哇!好厉害!希望自己到了爷爷辈时,还能精精神神驾车给人看,说过份点,真想可以成为一个坐敞篷车巡游东京街路的老爷爷。现在能想像得到的就是这个样子。

第一次见面的女孩子,你会注意什麼部位?

嘴。其实应该说是嘴巴里吐出的语言。如果她说话时让我觉得"咦,为什麼会这麼说呢?"就会对这个人发生兴趣,有被意料之外的话语吸引的倾向,可能因为我自己比较淡淡的,所以对这种情形比较没有抵抗力。

小时候叫的小名,还有你自己喜欢被叫的名字?

很熟的人常叫我KASHI,学校里的朋友也都是叫KASHI、KASHI的,后来在圈里被叫"Kassy"是从岩井导演开始的。拍"love letter"见面时,问我"柏原君平常怎麼称呼啊?"我就说"KASHI,有时候是kassy"。
"那就叫kassy好了"后来摄制组其他人也都跟著叫我kassy,不知不觉传开去了。岩井导演最先叫的"kassy",大家都这麼叫我,很开心。

最近有让你流泪的事吗?

有,新买车刚拿到第二天,就被刮坏的时候,还有5天前撞车的时候,而且居然是和电线秆子撞(笑),那天晚上,在路上洋洋得意掉车头,突然听到pon的声响,呵呵,撞人了?!慌忙忙下车去看~~车被电线秆子撞瘪进去,那件事真是好衰~~~

最怕和哪种类型的人打交道?

勉强自己的人,那种人我好不忍看。本来不懂偏偏装出懂的样子。还有,我比较敏感,别人一撒谎~~就会察觉到~~要是看到有人故意掩饰自己或压抑自己的个性,我总想说更自然一点多好嘛。

请告诉我们你的梦。

希望在明年的正月初一梦到富士山吧(笑),一富士二鹰三茄子嘛,还是很想梦到这些啊(笑)当然还想和收史一起干点什麼,比如说唱歌啦,音乐等等。倒没有好想演这样的角色啊,那种个人的梦想,只是想全力以赴把眼前的事做好。

在被问到过的问题中,最讨厌的是?

"自己和现在演的角色有什麼相似之处"这种问题,一定会被问到这样的问题的,可是又没有答案,好为难~~演角色的时候,一般也不会考虑和自己像或不像,角色和本人是两回事嘛,"喜欢这个角色吗?还是讨厌?"这种问题也叫我好为难的,个人而言,我喜欢每个演过的角色,所以答案也是不变的。其实只要是能回答的问题,问什麼都可以,都高兴回答,但那些无论怎麼想都没有答案的问题真的是很为难。
