“Action!” I wonder how many times I heard that word yesterday… Every time I hear that word, my nerves tense up, and my heart races. That’s how yesterday was, day one. Unfortunately, I still haven’t gotten into my character yet, so yesterday’s first action was really me fighting with myself. I’ve never done anything quite like this, and it’s full of fun and difficulty and frustration. But I’m really happy to be doing my first real role as an actor. I’m happy that I find myself thinking more and more about my role in the movie. That’s how it is. It’s been really, really hard, but it feels like I can get over this difficulty with help. That’s when I thought about something people had told me a lot; “Getting too accustomed is not good.” That really is true, isn’t it? But not getting accustomed is no good either… So, ask until you understand! Rest when you’re tired! Eat when you’re hungry! Huh? (lol) Yeah.

Yesterday, it took about six hours to film five minutes of the movie. That’s so long! But when I was actually on the set, I didn’t notice the time fly by. “Oh!” (six hours pass…) Like that. Yeah, that was it (lol)

It’s interesting the way the staff all speak different languages on the set, like Mandarin, Cantonese, Japanese, Thai, and English. So, when we have free time, we all write notes in different languages to study and allow us to communicate. That’s always fun. Oh, that reminds me. Yesterday, my manager said, “She was speaking English with Vanness Wu,” but I wasn’t really talking fluently! Sorry… I’m still learning, so when I hear a difficult word, I’m like “?” (lol) Everybody calls me “Ai”, but when I miss my mark they all say things like “Ai-chan, mochotto, matte” or “Daijobu desu ka? Suwaru?”** trying their best to speak Japanese. They’re all so kind. But when it comes to the real thing, they can be strict. Anyway, we’re filming more action scenes today. If I let my mind wander, I could get hurt. I’ll focus my nerves, keep smiling, and do my best today. I saw some comments saying that there’s a storm in Japan. Are you all okay? It always rains where I go, and it rained here all day. That’s not good… Xie xie.

ai

PS: The food on set is good ☆

**Note: These translate as: “Ai… wait… moment” or “You okay? Sit down?” Ai also wrote the phrases in katakana, to emphasize that they were spoken in a foreign accent.

 

 

Enjoy

It seems she’s in HongKong already and is ready to start shooting the movie

the media caught her up on Narita Airport for a press confrence before leaving to Hong Kong

-Just before leaving for Hong Kong, approximately 100 reporters gathered to see Kago Ai.-
the press conference can be viewed here
http://www.ohmynews.co.jp/photo/20080516/25108

translation for her confrence is below:

She’s been unable to sleep for the past three days, but she says she’s doing well and is grateful for everyone who’s helped her. She’s nervous, but ready to do her best. Asked how she feels about working with a big star like Sammo Hung, she says she’s determined to work hard to keep up with him. As for Vaness Wu, she hasn’t had a chance to meet him yet, but she knows she will be in a lot of scenes with him, so they’ll be together a lot. She bought some books so that she’d be able to communicate with him. Asked to show off her Chinese abilities, she has trouble remembering how to say “Hello” but claims that she’ll study on the plane and in Hong Kong. She does eventually come up with a “Ni Hao”, but feels bad about forgetting everything she’d studied the day before. She thinks that she can introduce herself, as long as she has a phrasebook with her.

She says that it’s been almost three years since appearing in front of the press, and is grateful that so many people came out to see her so early in the morning. A reporter asks her how she felt a year ago after being dismissed, and she repeats that she felt as though it was her fault and she didn’t understand what she was doing. But after having time to reflect and looking back at her previous works, she started to think of how she should have done things better. She didn’t think she had much hope during the past year, but now thinks that it was because of all the hardships that she had to overcome that she was given the opportunity she has today.

She also admits that she lost weight over the past year and says that it was partly because she wanted to change herself and to appear more mature. So, she started looking after her body, cooking for herself, and trying new foods. She says that she never really noticed that she was chubby before, but while she was under “house arrest”, she watched herself on DVD and thought that she looked fat. By age 19, she had never dieted before, so she decided to try. Because she hates to lose, she was able to keep on dieting. Since she does like Chinese food, she feels that she may rebound back to her old weight in China. But if that happens, she plans to diet again. Though she does say that she still likes herself, no matter how much she weighs.

On the subject of her blog, she says that she’s happy to read the comments every day and sees the readers as friends who give her advice. She’s happy that her fans have been so kind to her. Every morning she looks forward to reading them, and when she turns on her computer she’s always happy to see how many comments there are.

Asked what her biggest motivation was during her time off, she says that seeing the other members of Hello Project working hard on TV motivated her. She felt that if they were working hard, she should be working hard too. While she thought it would be fun to be back on stage with them again, she knew it would never happen again. Right now, she wants to concentrate on becoming an actor, and if she’s given an offer for something she wants to do, she’d be happy to. She says that she still likes to sing, but actually prefers listening to music now. Even so, she would still sing if she had the chance.

Asked (bluntly) if she still smokes, she says that she doesn’t. When another reporter asks her for the best way to quit smoking, she’s not really sure, but suggests chewing gum or eating candy. Specifically, she recommends mint gum and milk candy. She does admit that milk candy is a bit strange.

Her final message to her fans: “Kago Ai has finally made her comeback. I’m going to Hong Kong now to film a movie. I’m really nervous, but I’ll do the best I can. Thank you for your support.”

Her message to Tsunku: “I saw on the internet that your wife gave birth to twins. Congratulations.” She admits that she hasn’t had a chance to see him, but thinks she should email him.

[thanks to author for the translation]

I haven’t been keeping track of Kago Ai a lot these days..my schedule is just as hectic as hell XD..
anyways…From my poor translation from Aibon’s Blog, It seems her script just arrive on her doorstep on 10/5/2008..and she said her role in the movie is similar to her own personality and funny
From some colorful resource named “Puffy Love” [the same person who help me with kago’s first update]
told me that Aibon will be starring alongside Wu Vanness [A *Taiwanese* BoyBand] *Not Korean* XD
and also there’s a rumour that the title might be “Kung Fu Chef?”
and as a wannabe anchor woman XD
I dig this on the original writer herself..Kago..
and she wrote: [again poor translated by yours truly XD]

“The movie will featured Vanness Wu from F4 Boyband.Who is currently visiting Japan as we speak”

and yes, she is suprised with all the chinese characters..but it seems her lines was in Kanji? [I can’t really read much so i had to use a translator -__-]

so correct me if im wrong XD

-Puffy Love said her voice might be dubbed…So will it be?
-If the title is true..so will we see some Aibon action?
-I can’t wait for this movie to be out XD

so thats all from your not-really sourceful news..brought to you by nekocafe.wordpress.com
sources by Aibon’s Blog, Nekocafe’s poor translation and Puffy Love [Thanks! :)]

Firstly i want to thank Puffy Love for informing me this news..Just like any other “wannabe” press..I do dig in this matter first..
So the best way, is right to the soon-to-be-actress’s blog..Biscuit Club Blog . With a VERY* poor translation,
I manage to read of that her first career as an actress will start off in Hong Kong..Its still undecided…yet..
It seems that aibon herself is still unsure of the details…
But What’s this?…
Will we hear Aibon speaking chinese or English instead of Japanese?..
and if its approved..what kind of movie will she act on?..
Damn, all this question makes me eager to know everything XD…

PS: on the 2 previous blogging of hers..she said her current favourite color is Purple and Green..
HEY!! thats MY favourite color for over a decade now :>_<:
