女優 男優 俳優

correct me if im wrong but the opposite of 女優 is not 男優. I don’t know why or whatever but from my japanese immersion i’ve come to associate danyuu with a male actor in an AV (a porno). that’s what comes up in my head when i hear the word danyuu. the reason I’m writing about this was because I saw ariyoshi’s show… where people live with people that have opposite views on life for however long it takes for both of them to get over it/resolve their differences/make compromises. ex. anally clean person vs really messy person. one of the pairs was an AV actress and a tokyo university student who was in his 20s and he’s a virigin. Nothing dirty happeend lol. IT was just funny when ariyoshi summarized the episode at the end. he was like oh at first something something and now he’s saying he is willing to star in an AV with the girl.

after living with each other for a day or two or a couple? I don’t remember how long they lived together but the girl said to him oh you should get rid of your virginity asap… etc etc. Then she was like we should star in an AV together. It’ll totally sell since we’re on this show and so people will know about it etc etc lol. the guy says no… then he says i’ll probably say yes after 2 days. I think she said danyuu de dete mitari or something along those lines. AT that moment i was like yeah danyuu is just used to describe the “male actors” in AV.

From what I can tell from my immersion if you want to say male actor it’s 俳優. and on a sorta similar note 愛人 is not fiancee.. it means lover as in mistress
許婚     (いいなずけ ) means fiancee though im’ not sure if you can use this word on males because i’ve only seen it used on females in hanazakari no kimtiachi e . From checking the defiition on yahoo jp dic apparently you can use it on male or female.

I WAS CURIOUS AND GOOGLGED and I’m RIGHT

俳優の「優」には「芝居を職業とする人」という意味がある。女性の俳優を指す「女優」という呼称に対応して、男性の俳優を指す「男優」という言葉が存在するが、一般には俳優の呼称が使われることが多い。ただし、授賞などで俳優を性別で分類しなければならない場合とアダルトビデオのAV男優は別である。

YAY TO IMMERSION! if you say danyuu people are probably thinking you’re talking about porn but anyways all you hear is haiyuu (on tv articles etc) anyway so i don’t know why anyone would do that.

New Strategy for Korean

Like I said before i’m doing the paper vs. electronic for my SRS tha tI’m setting up the SRS schedule myself… i mean sometimes I hate anki cause it asks me even though I know it so well or like I forgot it because it asked me so late… technically it’s my fault that I pressed 3 instead of 2 or watever but the point is I don’t understand anki or well anki doesn’ tunderstand me or how i feel or anything so maybe this is better lol? well maybe i’ll switch to computer for korena but no.. I don’t want to I don’t want to stare at the computer.

Anyways new strategy is read korean on the internet. I read japanese on the internet for fun a lot.. it’s fun and i’m better at that than reading korean.. .well actually i can read both just i come across words i don’t know more frequently in korean so that’s the killjoy.joykill component of korean for me…

.it sure as hell more productive than tumblr or facebook lol. if only lingo would stop being a bitch. no seriously, i set it up so it tellsme the definition when i press shift and right click or left clik or somethin but it doesn’t work like 70% of the time and it crashes when i try too. pice of shit lol. but anyawys what I’m going about reading is anything that interests. as of now it’s limited to immortal song. cause I now LOVE that show. It’s my saturday/sunday thing.. whenever the hell people upload it on youtube. LUKCILY i found some NIC NICE sites with korean indie so I hope I catch up like for fuck’s sakes i didn’t know about deb’s second album or jaurim’s new album… they might be old by now 😦  I’ve justt been ugggh.

Anyways I was reading this and it was good for the first 2 paragraphs and then I finally came across a word I had to loooook up.

and there’s some new scandal about ali and rape and her father and some shit — -video clip on youtub eand article on that same blog.. I have no idea what the fuck is going on so i have read and figure it out. but it happened december 12th so it’s not too… old lol.

SHOUJO JIDAI the boys japanese version comments. on hey hey hey. SNSD

the lyrics are um.. interesting. they put in a lot of english and anyways it’s like a boa song… she has lots of weird english in her song too right? why can’t the members that speak english say yo these lyrics don’t make no sense in english either or it’s lame … put in more damn japanese damnit  etcetc.And hamada is right… it’s mad hard to understand the rap the part (it’s like impossible to catch without the words underneath with the english) where she says 集結咲き乱れ is like wtf?

but I don’t think they’re pronunciation is that bad… I don’t feel like their pronounciation off in any fundamental way you know how korean people have really thick accents… the intonation thing.

and I FINALLY SAW LAST EPISODE OF SASHIKO NO KUSE NI

it eneded with laughs as always otousan- owachatta :D.  I literally stopped watching the ep before the finale. the finale is 2 eps though. so 😦 so many months just to finish. but on the other hand as far a s i know akb ariyoshi kyouwakoku is not overrrrrrrrrr so i’m mad behind in eps like months of eps lol. but I skip boring eps but you know that episode with the benri goods and murder mystery was prettyy good and funny etc. so I look forward to it as well.
