Girlcrush: Hirosue Ryoko
Who is she: Japanese actress, also a singer, but I havent heard any of her music.
Why I love her: I fell for her understated acting in the 1990's jdrama, Summer Snow, where she played a woman with a serious heart condition who decides to learn to scuba dive. I didn't see her again until Yakuso to Kenji, where she hilariously plays a former gang leader. She's been in a lot of things, including the Luc Besson film Wasabi, which I havent seen.
She has a fresh face. She isn't cutesy or overwhelmingly gorgeous, there is something very real about her, and that appeals to me so much.
She does have a quirky smile, which I find so very endearing.
And then, of course, she brings the hotness.
Does anyone else think she looks...creepily young here? Is it just me?
She's been in 8 billion things, including Triangle, MR BRAIN, and a Luc Besson movie, so seriously, check her out, as she is pretty awesome. Im thinking I need a Yasuko to Kenji rewatch here pretty soon - anybody with me?
