Help. I saw this jpop music video, anyone know who this is?

Post by abcabc » Jul 16th, '06, 03:01

I dont know how old or new the song is, i saw it 3x on tv but cable tv, the bridge.

It's a japanese teen female singer playing a piano throughout.

she's young, short hair, rather fast paced song.. catchy, not dark but upbeat and positive sounding (i don't understand Japanese)...

during the video, there's pictures of clouds in the background.


I tried viewing jpop video stills on youtube but that was unfruitful and timeconsuming...

any ideas? thanks.

Hmm...the only piano playing teenaged Japanese singer I can think of is Younha (who is actually Korean)
Physical description matches too....
Mmm... song is probably Houkiboshi...:scratch:
I think...

YES! thank you thank you! I've been trying to pin point it for about 3 months now... You are great. I did a search on Houkiboshi and found a link to a song sample. That's it. It's real nice song. I'm a bit embarrased I thought the singer was Japanese. I mean, the song is in Japanese, isn't it? You are good. I wasn't sure if my post would get an answer, but not only that, I got in in minutes. This looks like a great forum too...

Younha is a cross-over artist like BoA (only her Japanese is better :p ), so yes, she sings in Japanese. To my knowledge, she only has one song in Korean.

Indeed, and wasn't her Korean song featured in the J-drama Tokyo Wankei?

Also, I think she's only debuted in Japan and not in South Korea...

Never saw Tokyo Wankei, so I don't know. Sonim was in that and they didn't use any of her singing talent? What a shame!

But yeah, Younha never debuted in S. Korea (although I think she did audition for something a la American Idol and lost D: ... meh... their loss... :p )

does she have any other catchy songs or has she been sort of a one hit star.

She's been building slowly in popularity..
Besides Houkiboshi, she covered the classic theme song to Touch for the movie release, and Yubikiri, which had an anime tie-in (Bleach?) :unsure:

Younha! I really like her songs cause she sings really soothing songs. Her album has come out and its called Go! Younha I think. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Younha <-- The Younha wikipedia site! It's got all you need to know (Basic stuff) and album info.
