Japanese friend becomes Gravure idol

March 20th, 2007 . by Matt

A friend of mine became a Gravure idol. I was pretty surprised by it. Here are some videos.

This last one is a Korean lesson. She is Japanese, but can speak Korean fluently.

Check out her blog!

    Does this mean when she becomes a porn star you’ll get the videos she stars in for free or at a discount?

    Occidentalism will draw a phenomenal number of Korean viewers today.

    I’d like to generalize camphortree’s statement.

    I don’t think all Gravure idols become porn stars. In fact, I think most do not.

    Only if you thought that Dustin Hoffman in Rainman was retarded in real life.

    Just one more cool thing about Japan.

  14. comment number 14 by: kojibomb

    not really cool
    this kind of thing is usually big in male-dominated society

    hmmm maybe she is cute because she seems retarded lol
    is Gravure responsible for those Japanese girls who try to sound/act like they are stupid?

  15. comment number 15 by: kojibomb

    ok…
    i saw ur videos
    why is her legs so short?
    looks like a midgit lol

    Koji, you sound so jelous of Japanese culture.

    Speaking of short legs. Have you seen Lee HO Lee.

    She has super long torso with stubby legs. Really funny looking when you see her standing in non-photoshoped pictures.

    Interesting that YOU koji bring up male dominated society. You should know the damage that a male dominated society like Korea has done to women.

  18. comment number 18 by: GarlicBreath

    The link didn’t work. It seems that Kyopos in American miss their male dominated society back in Korea so they beat their wives. Koji.

    Anyway, back to how COOL Japan is.

    The fact that Korea too is a male dominated society doesn’t change the state of the japanese society. Lets just admit that both should try and welcome some change in that matter.

    well, Dustin was playing an autistic person… and as an actor he has quite a range…
    Is she playing a retarded person..? Its quite convincing. What else has she done?

    Do you have clips of her in more challenging roles?

    Garlic Breath- do u always have to bring every topic back to beat on Korea? Its alittle pathetic

    This just serves to show how misinformed american and korean audiences are about the Japanese Entertainment Industry: gravure idols are in no way related to porno stars. Though they do often pose in bikini, they never perform sexual acts on camera. That’s what AV are there for.
    Additionally, she doesn’t look retarded at all! Idols often talk like little girls, but that doesn’t make them any dumber, just cuter. Nakagawa Shoko is a perfect example.
    Furthermore, she speaks Japanese and Korean, which I am sure many of you (neither do I, by the way) can’t even parch a simple sentence in.
    Anyway, what I meant to say is that you shouldn’t look down on people like that. Please try to inform yourselves before making hasty judgments..

    GarlicBreath, I don’t find her legs to be all that stubby.

    Its a matter of interpretation. I find her voice imbecilic, her movements graceless and jejune and her demeanor just plain daffy; therefore, to me, she looks retarded.

    Nor am I looking down on her. On the contrary I think its wonderful that someone with her apparent mental dificiencies has been able to find employment. It says a lot about the standards of Japanese men.

    I’m curious; do you ban posters on this site?

    Because it hasn’t taken much time browsing for the GarlicBreath one-note Korea-bashing schtick to become extremely tiring. Would you ban the guy if his name were Sambo and every post he made was about darkies and their huge lips and love of malt liquor and refusing to pay child support to all their bastard offspring?

    Eh. Whatever. Your friend is cute.
