Yamashita Bros.

[note: thanks Kami for telling me about this!]

The news are all over the place now. Shoon's younger brother is indeed part of JE now and his name is Reon, just as it was rumoured! ^___^ He's 14 and they look like two peas in a pod! O____O

In the profile pic Reon looks exactly like Shoon did a few years ago. As Luma pointed out in a comment on the Ya-Ya-yah community, the only differences are that Shoon's lips are fuller and the brows are a little different in shape too. Ah, he's just as cute as Shoon anyway. =)

I'm not sure it's fair for Reon that JE have made him have the exact same haircut Shoon had back then, though. He probably wants to be himself, not a clone of his onii-chan, though he DOES look like a clone. ^^U I really would like to see a picture of their parents. Their mother is probably beautiful. Sometimes I think Shoon is an elf in disguise. [left: Shoon when he was 13/14; right: Reon, who is now 14]




Don't you think it's really sweet that both their names have the -on kanji? ^.^* (Sho-on/Re-on) And I'm sure their names are japanized versions of Sean and Leon. Shoon himself wrote his name as "Sean" on the magic-scan episode, and I have a Japanese friend whose kanji name would be transcribed as Marie though it is pronounced Mah-ree-eh. Her mother gave her that name purposely because she's a Christian.


For those who haven't yet seen it, here's a pic of Shoon with Reon (they don't look so similar in this one)





And this is a curious pic I found on My Happy Town's BBS. It's a poster or collage (don't know which) of Johnny's Jr. Daibouken of this Summer, and... well, just look closely at the names of the groups and the pics. It's interesting. ^^


Atarashii_yoake posted a translation of Reon's profile at the Ya-Ya-yah community. Go check it! ;-)

Wii, vi hace poco al hermanito de Shoon y la verdad es que es una preciosidad *o*. Para mí tiene una mezcla entre su hermano y Taiyo, ¿verdad? o.o. ¡¡Y solo tiene 14!! Si con 14 años ya está así ni me imagino cuando tenga´17 o 18...¡¡es todo un proyecto de futuro!! ADORO la foto en la que salen los dos juntos, que cutes, por dios *-*

O__O ¿Sus nombres entonces son Sean y León? Pues pensandolo bien, siempre dije que Shoon no me sonaba en absoluto a japonés. Es más, yo pensaba al principio de conocer a Ya3, que el chico se llamaba Shun, pero a veces lo escribían mal ^^U. Pero bueno, si él mismo lo escribió como Sean, entonces es que se llama así. Se ve que sus padres quisieron ponerle a sus hijos un nombre más "exótico" (para ellos que son orientales, claro está ^^;;)

Pues eso, que me ha encantado esa cucada de niño. Como decimos una amiga y yo, adoptable 100% *-*

Un besito :***

×Do you know Japanese a little!? Sugoi!

I was mistaken. You are giving a report about the television program. You are very good at Japanese.
