Japanese music video for Another World by actress-singer Kou Shibasaki. It’s a theme song for upcoming TV drama series Future Diary.
Shibasaki started acting in 1998. She made her breakthrough two years later with cult movie Battle Royale. She’s one of Japan’s most popular stars these days.
Riding on her rising popularity, she ventured into music in July 2002, exactly a decade ago. She’s doing pretty well as a singer and has sold millions of copies. She’s always better known as an actress though, especially overseas.
I always felt that her real interest is being a singer though, just a feeling.
