Heh,

I am really suprised, beacause I take part on the creating SPECIAL Nodame in Prague (like crowd in theathres and hotel). When we shooting second day some new faces had appered. And I said to my fried.: "Hey I know that boy, he looks like one J-Pop Singer...no no no it have to be mistake, Why the singer should have to take part in this." And now I am reading that he was HIM... :-D I am pretty angry beacause I think about that I will ask him for a sing.

This shooting was great fun. I love Japanese and they were great all of them, and "Nodame" is as funny as in picture...But Chiaki isnt as arogant as in it :-P

I am very impatient for wathing this picture. ^_^
