It's been a while but I'm back! lol.Happy birthday to Akiya, guitarist of the Jrock band Kagrra, who turns 29 today!!Wikipedia (with some add-ins; I'm lazy chadup): Kagrra, (神樂, Kagura, Kagrra, on album art and promotional material) is a visual kei rock band from Japan. They were originally signed to the now defunct Key Party Records under the name "CROW". The group changed its name when it signed to Free-Will's PS Company division. They have since released 6 albums, 5 EPs, and 18 singles, along with multiple video releases and numerous re-releases. Kagrra,'s keen interest in Japanese culture and history has earned them the "Neo Japanesque" label.
Kagrra is anticipated to release their next single in October. It's called Shiki, and since it's still early, there's not yet a PV to see. But their latest PV is from their April album, and is called "Sakura Zukiyou". Check it out!
Some facts about Akiya (copied from Neo Japanesque):

Happy birthday to Sunmin, a Korean singer who turns 22 today!!
Sunmin was born and raised in Korea, but she speaks both Korean and Japanese. After seeing an enchanting performance by Christina Aguilera, she decided to become a singer. She took vocal lessons and soon sent her first demo tape out. In 2006, she managed to attract the attention of Good Entertainment, which features famous Korean artists like Shinhwa and Lyn.
However, Sunmin is most active in Japan. In fact, she has only released one Korean single, which was a duet with Shin Hye Sung. She is signed to Japan's famous label Victor Entertainment, and began her musical career in Japan in 2006. She released her first single Keep Holding U
in July as a collaboration with Kubota. (This was the single that was released in Korea as a duet with Shin Hye Sung.) Since, she has released 5 singles, a mini-album, and an album.
Her latest single is entitled Will
, and is contained in her first album, Brand New Girl
, which was released in December 2008. It is a really lovely song. Sunmin's vocals are really spectacular, although she sounds as if she strains on some of the higher notes. This song is a powerful and emotional ballad with some really, really great vocals. Superb! (Download

Happy birthday to Tiffany, a member of SM Entertainment girl group So Nyuh Shi Dae (Girls Generation), who turns 20 today!!
I've never been a huge fan of SNSD myself, but lately their songs have become really addictive, like "Tell Me Your Wish (Genie)" and Himnae (Way to go!). And they are all so freakin' adorable!! =] I don't know which one is which because I'm not too much into them, but I enjoy their performances. Hehe.
Tiffany for her part has done several solo activities. She has a solo song called "Nah Honjaseo", which was released as a digital single, and is from the original soundtrack of the drama Ja Myung Go. I really like this song. It's a very sweet, fresh, and pretty ballad, and Tiffany sings very nicely. Definitely a good listen. She also collaborated with Kim Dong Wan in his song Bimil (Secret), although all she does is narrate a few words, lol, although I think that's her in the music video. She sang with K.Will for his song "A Girl Meets Love". It's such a lovely duet! They both sing beautifully and are very vocally compatible. It's definitely a must-listen. =] Finally, Tiffany, along with SeoHyun and Jessice, sang "Oppanappa" and "Mabinogi (It's Fantastic!)". "Oppanappa" is a really sweet and cute ballad that all three girls sing very well, while "Mabinogi" is cheerful, upbeat, and sunny. Both are great songs!
I'd also like to mention that Tiffany participated in the Haptic Motion commercials with Jessice, Yuna, and DBSK. =] Hehehe 1, 2, 3. They are so hilarious. xDD Well they're mostly hilarious for the DBSK xDDDD Junsu is so adorkable and Yunho so abandoned. =D Ahaha I love it.
Anyways that's my shpeal for today. =] Download: Tell Me Your Wish (Genie), Himnae (Way To Go!), Nah Honjaseo, Bimil (Secret), A Girl Meets Love, Oppanappa, Mabinogi.
Hello asianbirthdays members!
We are now in August, and I'm sure you know what that means. =] Time for the list of August birthdays!
I finished adding all of the most popular artists from my playlist, so I'm now going to divide them by language and genre since there's so many (August takes up about a page and a half on my word document). xD;
( Cut since there are so many hahaCollapse )
Of course, birthdays are not limited to this list and members are welcome to post for any Asian celebrity's birthday from any East or Southeast Asian country, no matter what they do. =] The only rules are posted on the sticky post on the front page. If you follow those, we're dandy. =D
Don't forget to comment comment comment and post post post. I'm hoping to get this community to be nice and active because I can't spend my whole life posting for all these birthdays! =D
A chronological list will be posted on the comm's front page if you'd prefer that. Enjoy, and happy August!
(I can't believe it's already August...)

Happy (slightly belaed) birthday to Nao, drummer of the Japanese rock band alice nine, who turned 29 yesterday (the 31st)!!
alice nine (formerly known as アリス九號. or alice nine.) is celebrating their 5th year anniversary! =D They made their major label debut with the single Namae wa Mada Nai
in July 2004, and have since released 15 singles, 3 mini-albums, and 3 albums. Their 9th single Jewels,
released in March 2007, became their dirst single to attain mainstream popularity, and their next single, White Prayer,
was their first to rank within the top 30 single rankings of the Oricon charts. In 2007, alice nine also appeared at the Jrock Festival in Los Angeles, their first overseas performance in their career, and in October they also appeared for the first time on the popular music television program Hey! Hey! Hey!
for the first time.
To celebrate their fifth anniversary, the band will be releasing their first single since December, Hana
on August 5, followed by a photobook containing interviews and reports of their 2009 performance and activities. Here is the video for their upcoming single, which will undoubtedly be on the oriconcharts
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO SHOW LUO WHO TURNS 30 TODAY! ♥
Show Luo otherwise known as 'little pig' ( xiao zhu in chinese ). He is a Taiwanese singer, dancer, host and actor who runs his own clothes brand, Stage Hyaline Of World. Despite the constant struggles when he first debuted, he has never given up and strives hard in everything he does in order to let everyone see him at his best. Other than that he's also a filial son and caring artiste to his fans. :)
Happy birthday to Shingo Takakura, bassist of the Japanese rock band NICO touches the walls, who turns 24 today!!
NICO touches the walls is a great band to look into. They formed in 2004 and signed to Sony Music Japan's Ki/oon Records in 2007, the same label that hosts L'Arc~en~Ciel, Asian Kung-fu Generation, and other popular rock groups. They made their debut in February 2008 with the single Yoru no Hate, and have since released four singles and an album under their major label. They are currently expecting to release their fifth single, Hologram, on August 12. Look out for it!
Here are two PVs from their upcoming single: "Hologram" and "Fuujin". "Hologram" is going to be the 2nd opening theme for the new Fullmetal Alchemist series, while "Fuujin" is the theme song for a movie, though I don't know which one. I REALLY like both songs! I'll be looking forward to the single's release. =] (They will probably appear on the Oricon charts, so the week after the 12 you can go to oriconcharts and download them there. =D)
( PVs under the cutCollapse )
Happy Birthday to Kim Bum, a rising Korean actor and singer, who turns 20!!
I love him. *_* He is adorable in every way and only 2 months older than me. =]
He was one of the F4 in the amazing popular Korean version of the (already popular) Boys Over Flowers. Personally I thought his acting was a little bit stiff in BOF, so I could never like him. But. After seeing him in East of Eden, I fell in love with him. East of Eden is an AMAZING drama and his acting in it is wonderful, even if he only appears for a few episodes. I totally recommend it, and I'm going to be looking for this young actor in the future. =]
Speaking of the future, he'll be appearing this summer in the upcoming sports drama Dream, which also stars Son Dam Bi! It's apparently stars Kim Bum as a kid who spent time in a juvenile detention center and gets out and starts boxing. I'm not sure if cute little Kim Bum can pull of the tough look, but we'll see how it ends up.
( And now for picspam!Collapse )
AAAANNNND I feel compelled to share this video. xD; HE'S ADORABLE.
( Adorable video of Kim Bum dancing silly xDCollapse )
He also sings....convincing me that all Koreans have some capacity to sing. xD; His voice is nothing too spectacular but he did produce a pretty nice ballad for the BOF F4 Special OST (or smth like that lol), and he is surprisingly good. =] It's a pretty ballad, for sure. Here's an mp3 video and an mp3 upload for ya. =]
Comments very much appreciated, yes?
