Sakurai + Hawaii + invasion of privacy, what a perfect combination. Johnny's seriously made full use of Arashi while they're in Hawaii. The boys were practically worked non stop there even up till late night (well, guess they're used to this... am not though LOL).


My goodness, they literally started filming just before midnight, the boys no need to sleep eh?

Well, apparently Sho-chan was ready to snooze in soon too. I think this is his kind of home clothes, and he doesn't waste. Re-use his concert t-shirt (which I want because the one for the fans is hideous). What does this show us? Sakurai Sho is just like us, normal! What do the Japanese think? Sakurai Sho sleeps in glitters?

No, Sho-chan, it's not embarassing, it's NORMAL! LOL

Judging from his room, looks like they're staying in service apartment type rooms (those with minimum stay of 3-4 days). I love this kind or room with the kitchen but they're not cheap and Sho-chan's room is the better type (based on the pillows stack, yeah I'm very subjective LOL)

So apparently in Hawaii, there's a rule that you cannot buy liquors after 12, and during the filming it's almost midnight, hence they need to get out now if they want to buy liquors.

Ah, Sho-chan, you still think of your image if fans found out that you're wearing last year's con t-shirt on daily basis. Show the world that you're the number one Arashi fan! LOL

Fan service!

There's a reason why Sho-chan keeps on losing on Manequin Five... self explanatory from the before (left) and after...

They're finally on the way to the supermarket.
So, Sho-chan likes to have alcohol + kimchi? Why not try milk + kimchi, quite nice, no?

Sho-chan, what are you trying to show here? LOL!!!

Totally forget the reason why he's in the supermarket in the first place until the staff reminded him...
So, the calendar spread made such an impact, eh?

Sho-chan's wallet... I don't understand what's the big deal with the gang on that wallet.
It's just a normal wallet, Sho-chan is not Matsujun no? You'd think national idol must have a super striking wallet? goodness me!

When they do this kind of contrast, it's kind of funny though.
And Sho-chan's like me. I keep all my foreign currencies in envelopes, the only difference is I take it out from the envelope and put on my travelling wallet whenever I travel. Sho-chan cannot be bothered, look at how he shoved in the receipts, change, everything into that tight envelope. What I'm more interested is how much currency he brings when he travels, HA!

They're making Sho-chan make Spam & egg. Why Spam?

To spread the show longer, they make sho-chan being nostalgic on his memorable places of Hawaii.

And he really was being nostalgic...

And the cameraman has no idea what Sho-chan's talking about LOL

OK, we cannot let Sho-chan going wild on the Waikiki beach at night alone, this is just LOL

Sho-chan wanted to take picture of that statue, he explained the story on that surfing statue with his Zero caster smug face LOL
Staff: You're so imformed
Sho-chan: That's because I read the guide book like mad!

Yes, Sho-chan you deserves a pic!

By the time they got back, it's almost 1am, and it's invasion of privacy time.

Sho-chan has this 1 little bag and inside it is too many varieties of tissues, sunglasses, fan (LOL). It's almost like an OL's bag. You bring more stuff than me, Sho-chan!

He's very well prepared for travel with all the plugs etc.

Other than normal clothes, he got this black mesh tanktop LOL
Staff: So you wear the tanktop just like that with no layers?

Sho-chan: Yes, why? Weird? I don't think so. If T-shirt and jeans is weird, what else is OK? If kakesoba tastes bad then what else is good?
*I may not translate this correctly because it sounds weird after it's written in English, but basically Sho-chan is just being cutely defensive on his choice of clothing, and probably that tanktop is from Aiba-chan for all we know wahahaha*

Interestingly he folded his parka and jacket sleeves to the shoulder. I guess it's for practicallity else it'll be too long and may hit the floor.

And for sleeping Sho-chan has his own sleeping trunks. From top idol to trunks as pajama.
Me: So?

So this is the expectation. And we all know Sho-chan's cooking skill is almost the same as his drawing skill. LOL

He sighed too many times as if it's a torture to make spam&egg. Even to the point, saying something like do I need to cut? LOL

And this is the reality. The person himself commented that it looks like a dog food. Well, who asked you to use the gigantic bowl LOL

Sho-chan's drinking session is self service. What? You expect him to be Matsujun? LOL

Taste? Tastes like spam & egg LOL

There's a long talking session from the pre-debut moment etc etc. It's same old stories so I skip those parts but there're some parts that I find it interesting

The moment in drama where Sho-chan felt he failed.

During filming of Kisarazu's cats eyen and he's in the middle of exam period. So this is the point when he had to juggle between study and drama to the point that he put his script underneath his jacket to peek on whenever he could during filming and that book almost fell off). I read from somewhere that he seldom slept during this period. I gues this is the birth of our workaholic boy.

Then we have the cute pic of 3 ikemen in 1 tiny little ofuro... Gah...

They're commenting on the wallet. There's this 1 lady saying that if that wallet came out during date, it's like a no no something like that. WTF, how shallow can you be, girl? I think if it's Sakurai Sho, people heck care about what your wallet look like because we all know his value :p. I know this is for a show, but still... I just can't it.

Sho-chan's explanation: it's his going abroad travelling wallet since high school, been using it because it's LEATHER. LOL can't be cuter.

They made fun on the bag as well with same 'lame' comment. Sho-chan's defence: I've been using it since junior high!
Sho-chan doesn't waste folks!

As for the gift to the show, Sho-chan noticed something that he encountered 2 years ago and was confident with his selection.

It's a rare Hawaii white honey (organic) selected as #1 during the honey competition.
They made fun of it, really...

Sho-chan's defence it's #1, right.

Ariyoshi: I can understand if it's a gife from some grandma, but from you?
Sho-chan: but it's number 1, no?

Just when this gathering of 2 people looked too sad and whether it's a failure...

He noticed something.
Sho-chan: Ah, they're back!

Kyaaa, the clearly drunk Ohno and super sober Matsujun.
What? Matsujun chaperoning Ohno? LOL

Ohno looks so happy seeing Sho-chan. Cute

So what's Sho-chan ending words for his midnight Hawaii episode?
Sho-chan: Jinseitte wakaranai (I don't understand life)

Despite of the lame bashing on Sho-chan's fashion sense. This episode actually gives Sho-chan more boost on his total image. Despite of his success, he's normal just like us. He's a little dorky, which makes him cute. He's hard working, has some deep thoughts for his life and with the fan service earlier, I'm not surprised if there are more people baited. LOL

I, too, hope someone or some community will sub this episode. This really showed another side of Sho that we didn't see before.

The funniest thing is that Ariyoshi and other guests said at the end that what showed of Sho didn't really contributed to the dreams of the kids who wanted to join Johnny's LOL I guess it's not what they'd expected from a top idol?

Yes, and seeing him still using the same overseas wallet since high school, same handbag since junior high, still using iphone 4s (according to other fan) shows that despite being a celebrity and earn high income, he's not an extravagant spender which he could totally afford to do.

I think another guest even said true or not, he should glamorize the private life of a top idol by appearing in a bath robe and holding a glass of champagne. Of course he may be just joking.

Thank you so much!! I really wanted to know more about this episode :D
I agree, Sho just seems like a normal (though very hardworking and talented) guy, I'm happy he wears regular pajamas and has a plain leather wallet xD

I gift food too! :P)

Thanks for the review!!!
And what's with people being very highly expectant and shallow?!!
After all, Our boyz are human beings! they are allowed to do and behave like normal people!!
You like the person for what he/she is NOT what he/she wears or owns?!!!

Anyway, it was very nice.
Thanks for the hard work and for sharing ^^

I loved this episode!
Haha those comments on his wallet and everything were a bit cruel:D but yeah i guess it's for a show and it did make me laugh :D also there were so many random parts like repeating his words and making them 'memorable' :D like 人生って分からない。 that was really random :D but I guess the whole point of this episode was kind of bashin on Sho and showing his 'other' side :D

I didn't quite understand that part about Kisarazu until I read this review and now that I know, I feel a bit sad.. ahh Sho's been such a hard-working boy since always...

my favourite part was probably when Ohno and MatsuJun arrived. It felt so.. normal and ordinary, like a drunk and a sober friend coming and visiting another friend haha. there's just something heart-warming about that situation. they seemed like college students haha. reminds me of my friends so much :)

OMG! I finally get everything now!
And I was surprised when Jun and Ohno came! My two ichibans came to see Sho-kun! Yehe~
Realising Jun is taking care of Ohno, it's just made my heart beat 1000xs than before (because I am a Juntoshi-biased person) CX
