    He can charm the socks off me. He was my favourite character in rich Man Poor woman. And I liked how he reunited with Satomi in Koi. In Chase he gave a breathtaking perfomance. Very suave. Someone used the word "stylish" to describe him and I think it definitely fits.

    Most of his movies/dramas from 2013 have not been subbed, as far as I can tell. This makes me sad. Actually, about half of his work has not been subbed. Isn't that really sad?!

    LOL that picture looks like it's cartoonish.
    Anyway, I like Arata so much, he always proves what a great actor he is.

    *sighs* He looks like a teenager in that picture, I wish there was a picture that shows him as the man he is now!

      i was looking at the RMPW casts and saw his picture, and I was like, who's that guy, never seen him on the drama. turned out it was Asahina. lol. somebody change it, it's kind of misleading. :D

      There's a thread for suggesting change of pictures in the help section of the forum, I've just been too lazy to ask someone to change the picture, but I'll do it now since I'm not the only way to feel this way about it! :)

      He is also awesome in Chase, playing alongside Eguchi and Kumiko Aso. He simply owned that drama and his presence is undeniable. You've got to watch that awesome drama

      I agree, he is awesome in Chase! Well, I think he's awesome in everything, but that's because he IS. I think he probably owns everything he's in (I haven't watched everything...) if he gets enough screentime. (I recently watched May Your Love Bloom A Hundred Years and he was in it for like one minute.)

      Now that I have watched Ping Pong, I can talk about how great he is in it! And you're right, it should be talked about. :) It's a quiet movie that has a lot of intensity; he's great in it because he has a very expressive face. Even though the character doesn't smile and doesn't talk a lot, he manage to convey a lot of emotion.
