~「TGIF!」Idol♥’s unzipped on way back Fridays (Volume 54)

Idols unzipped...

Happy Aloha~♥ Friday from paradise!!

For tonight’s Unzipped♥ we’ll go back to the summer of 2000 which marked the early stardom for idol/actress Uchiyama Rina. Her idol/modeling career had already taken off where she frequented idol and fashion magazines and this summer marked her momentous occasion of graduation while also producing her very first shashinshuu titled “R-157 ~Sotsugyou~” which coincided with the release of her very first idol image DVD of the very same name.

Uchiyama Rina R-157 Sotsugyou DVD

As you can see just above, idol DVDs typically back then were released in the standard CD sized jewel case format as the Americanized version of utilizing the much larger DVD casing was yet to convert Japan’s entertainment industry. “R-157 ~Sotsuyou~” the DVD was released on July 5th, 2000.

~Uchiyama Rina “R-157 ~Graduation” (complete video)~

The DVD runs just over 31 minutes and serves as both a personal memorandum of Uchiyama Rina’s graduation time including a light commentary of memories of friends, likes and dislikes with school life in general as well as being a documentation of her very first photo book’s shooting. Small interval portions of the video also include some candid footage taken by a handheld and I didn’t notice this years ago when I first watched this DVD but there’s this acoustic guitar playing what sounds like Nina Gordon’s “The End of the World” or at least the chorus part sounds like it…..

“…Why do the birds go on singing
Why do the stars glow above
Don’t they know it’s the end of the world
It ended when I lost your love…”

    Hi mb. Such beautiful photos. (I will watch the video on my next visit.) She’s such an attractive woman, with a very sensual lower lip. Even when she’s pulling faces she’s beautiful.

    • I especially love the photos of Uchiyama Rina at Met’s stadium! Hahah her face pulling ways are quite featured here as she even has an entire little chapter dedicated to this humorous self expression of hers =D. And now you have me infatuated with her lower lip area…(^q^)!

      Hope ~* you enjoy her video clip!
