The first time I saw Yosuke (pronounced “yoh-skay”) Kubozuka was on “Strawberry On the Shortcake”, a Japanese tv drama. Takizawa Hideaki was the lead actor, but Yosuke stole the show. His character was clever, confident and weird all at the same time. I took a mental note to watch all the rest of his dramas/movies, but haven’t gotten around to it yet. He’s not hugely popular, and he’s not usually most womens’ first choice. When my Japanese girl friends asked me who my favourite Japanese actor is and I told them Yosuke Kubozuka, they had to first remember who he is, and then disagree that he had any appeal at all. They think he’s weird, and they think I’m even weirder for liking him. He’s not your normal actor pretty boy, but he’s got an eccentric quality to him that I find interesting.
Have any of you heard of him or have you seen any of his movies? What are your thoughts on him? Well, no matter the case, he gets a special spot on “Black Women Love Bi, and All Asian Men”.
