I really know about Arashi since 2012. Even I knew Matsumoto Jun and love him when I watched HanaDan when I was in highschool, 2006, I only knew that he is a member of Japanese boyband. When I was in highschool, I was not really into internet and didn't know where and how I can see
First, I watched first/pilot episode of Arashi ni Shiyagare. My first impression was not really great. I thought it wasn't really funny. Maybe it because I've very familiar with Running Man which more active physically than just talk show like AniShi. Honestly, I also judged that MatsuJun is the only one who atractive in Arashi and assume that he is the most famous and has the most fans. After watched one episode of AniShi, I switched to watching dorama. I decided to watching Yamada Taro Monogatari because it Japanese version of Poor Prince. When I watched the first episode, I found it funny but still didn't get the reason why they choose Nino and Sho as the casts. I saw them not really handsome (maybe because I compered them to Vic Zhou who is very handsome to me). But I wasn't stop watching YamadaTaro because the story is interesting and entertaining. The second episode is the turning point of my fan-girling life. I saw Mimura Takuya smiling and laughing every time he saw the innocent Yamada Taro. I saw sincerity in his eyes whenever he smiles like the happiest person in the world. I fallen in love to him.
After I finished watching YamadaTaro, I watched Arashi ni Shiyagare again. After saw some episodes, I'm more in love to Sho. I always like a guy who smart and has good humor. Of course Sho is ridiculously smart. For the information, my bias of K-pop groups usually a leader or/and a rapper [This is my bias lists of K-pop before I'm Arashian: Super Junior - KyuHyun (yes, he is the exception but he dreams to be a rapper too); MBLAQ - SeungHo (he is the leader); ShinHwa - Eric (he is the leader and the rapper); BEAST - JunHyung (he is the rapper, yet he has the leadership)]. So, when I knew that Sho is the rapper, I really excited. And when I knew that he is like the shadow leader of Arashi, it convinced me that my ideal man is someone who can make me laughed, discuss anything with me, and guide me to be a better person (also the bonus if he can rap ^_^). I found my ideal man in Sho. The more I learn about Sho, the more I love him.
For Sho's 35th birthday, I want to draw him although I'm not good at it. But, I couldn't find the time to did it so I can only made this.
Sakurai Sho, I always adore and love you. I wish you to found the happiness of your life like you bring the happiness of my life. Omedetou Sakurai-san *kiss and hug for you*
