TRANSEXUAL GENDER IN ASIAN ENTERTAINTMENT INDUSTRY


 
LADY, Transgendered Korean pop group  
This is also a proof that Korea is having a great improvement 
in medical world esp. PLASTIC SURGERY, look how beautiful they are ~~
Can you believe that all of them were MALE before??

LADY is a Korean kpop group, noted as the first transgender group from that country. The band consists of Sinae, Sahara, Binu and Yuna. According to the official story, they were the best out of hundreds who tried out to be part of this band.

Their formation was inspired by the emergence of Harisu, a Korean singer and actress, who is also transgendered.

HARISU, Famous Korean pop singer who is transgendered

Sinae has previously appeared in commercials with a female dance group as well as a music video by Cho PD, and Sahara is a 2003 beauty pageant winner in Thailand and a former jeans model.
LADY released their first album in 2005, consisting of only a few tracks, with many of them being remixes of their first two singles: Attention and Ladies Night. There was much attention given to them by the press, given their unique status as a transgendered band in a conservative country. However, their album and all the singles from it flopped, being considered more of a joke than anything else. They were able to perform on Korean music shows only a handful of times, while their music and videos were not well-received. In order to drum up more publicity, they released a photobook featuring nude shots of all the Lady members; this also failed to catapult them into stardom, however. They are currently on a break, but it remains to be seen if Lady will continue on.

Ataru Nakamura, Transgendered Top singer in Japan

Ataru Nakamura who is born with Gender identity disorder, and people will call those people as transsexual. Ataru Nakamura did not realize his gender till he was a teenager. After he realized his true gender as a female, she fell in love with one of her classmates. But the classmate that she loved made fun of her since she is not normal, and all of her classmates begin to knew he acts and thinks like a female, so they all teased her. As a result, she can not make any friends in school or in her life. So she puts all her attention into music since she has a unbelievable good sense on music. At the age of 15 she wrote a song Tomodachi No Uta to describes how sad that is after she tells the person she loved that she loves him, then they cannot be friend anymore. Disregard Ataru Nakamura’s gender problem, no doubt her music is extremely good and her voice too.

Okay maybe there is pro and contra on this matter of transexual gender however should we discredit someone works only because their choice of sex?!


When I listened to Tomodachi No Uta by Ataru Nakamura, the song really strucked me, i’m so touched. And strucked me again when I found that the singer is a transexual gender and this song was created cause of her Personal Experience…i said wow, no wonder the song’s so wonderful, she experienced it.

Lyrics-Romaji
Tomodachi no Uta
Lyrics & Music: Nakamura Ataru
Romaji by: cori
fureru made mo naku saki no koto ga
miete shimau nante
sonna tsumaranai koi wo
zuibun tsudzukete kita ne

mune no itami naosanaide
betsu no kizu de kakusu kedo
kantan ni barete shimau
doko kara ka nagarete shimau

*1 te wo tsunagu kurai de ii
narande aruku kurai de ii
sore sura ayaui kara
taisetsu na hito wa tomodachi kurai de ii

yorikakaranakerya soba ni ireta no?
ki ni shite inakereba
hanareta keredo imasara…
imasara… muri da to kidzuku

warawarete baka ni sarete
soredemo nikumenai nante
jibun dake semeru nante
itsu made mo nasakenai ne

*2 te wo tsunagu kurai de ii
narande aruku kurai de ii
sore sura ayaui kara
taisetsu na hito ga miete ireba joudeki

wasureta koro ni mou ichido aetara
nakayoku shite ne

*2, *1 repeat

tomodachi kurai ga choudo ii

Translation Tomodachi No Uta

For a long time
I’ve had boring romances
Where I can see what’s coming
Without being told
I don’t heal the pain in my heart
Just cover it up
But I easily get busted
It comes seeping out from somewhere

Just holding hands is enough
Just walking together is enough
If even that is dangerous
Then just being friends with that special person is enough

Could I have been by your side without leaning on you?
If he didn’t care, you would have left
But now…
Now…I realise it’s impossible

Being laughed at and ridiculed
But still unable to hate you
Just blaming myself
I’ll always be pathetic, huh?

Just holding hands is enough
Just walking together is enough
If even that is dangerous
Then just being able to see that special person is great

If I we can meet again when I’ve forgotten you
Be my friend, OK?

Just holding hands is enough
Just walking together is enough
If even that is dangerous
Then just being able to see that special person is great

Just holding hands is enough
Just walking together is enough
If even that is dangerous
Then just being friends with that special person is enough

Being friends is perfect
