  1. I saw only three pictures with that and Toru look great ;] On youtube is soundtrack with that show. Toru danced to Michael Jackson’s song must be great XD

    1. I bet he is! I hope his popularity keeps growing each day and I’d see him on dorama more and more.

  2. Me too! He plaied many roles on various stage, but this stage not com to DVD and no one have is 😦 I found only Vampire Story with him, but stage (besides Tenimyu) never 😦

          1. On lj is Vampire Stories with Tomo making, and on official site is trailer Toru’s part, at last in good quality 🙂 I have a few photos with magazine before Spin box, if you want 😉

        1. I know how hard it is. Hhaa, I hope we can see him more and more on screen. I hope he gets his main role soon.

          1. HOW COME? He’s very sexy and nicely paired with Masa! I think I should repeat Tenimyu, too. Just missing him so much.

  3. seems like Ba-chon will appear from the 2nd half of dorama.The title reminds me of Ikuta Toma’s movie. But, this one is kinda dark, just like Clone Baby.

    haven’t found the DL yet

      1. According to the official site, Ba chon’s part comes in the middle of the series. Well, I haven’t seen it yet, since the DVD will be released on June 2012.

  4. Great profile!

    Btw Baba’s in ep 6 of Fallen Angel with Masa!

    And also, he’s not part of PureBoys anymore

    1. Thank you. actually, I found the link, but can’t download it from my country. Will try another method to seize Fallen Angel.

          1. Thank you! Well it looks like I can download it but the dl keeps crashing after a few mbs… Maybe it’s just my connection.. might try again another time =o=

          2. I could finally download it!! After about 8 tries XD Is there a way to PM on wordpress? I could upload a mirror for you and send you the link then delete it afterwards.

          3. It’s in my sent items so maybe it’s in your junk? I’ll try to send it again.

          4. Thank you, Joyce san. I found your mail. Please leave the part 002 since I’ve not able to dw it yet. Will try again later.
            My first impression is that this drama is beautifully taken. Can’t wait to take snapshots of Ba-chon & Masa (guess they’ll be in that 002 part).

    1. dear Lilien san,
      I’d be more than happy to share the link, but just to be polite to this uploader (by the way, her name is Joyce), let’s just wait for her permission first. If we got no response by tomorrow, you’ll get surprise in your inbox. how’s that?
