About Me

I go by the name Thennary Nak online.

Personal history

I was born in Australia but lived most of my life in the U.S. I have lived in various locations in the U.S. but I consider Western Washington State the place I am from as it felt the most like home to me. Unfortunately I am not currently living there but hope I could move back one day.

While in university I went to Japan to be an exchange student for about a year. I attended Sophia University there and stayed in Saitama during my stay.

I graduated university with a B.A. in Asian Studies and I am currently searching for employment because the economy is terrible and degrees no longer guarantee jobs, only lots of debt.

J-pop fan history

I have been into Japanese pop music since 1999 when I discovered Utada Hikaru and her debut album First Love.

I did not get into Johnny's until 2007 when an online friend would not stop talking about a new group she had found and loved, NEWS. NEWS was the first Johnny's group I loved and was the gateway into the rest of Johnny's as I discovered their connections to the other Johnny's groups.

At the very end of 2007 I decided to start my blog here at Blogger. At first it was solely devoted to Johnny's but as I have expanded to following some other idol groups I have decided to expand a little on the blog to write about those sometimes as well.

Other blogging pages

I am a member of the Idol Minded staff. There I contribute regularly to the Recommended Reading posts.

I also have a blog dedicated to female J-idol groups at Morning Girls on the Run.

I am trying to add that affiliate column you've displayed on your site to my blogger site.

Can you tell me how you did it?

I've copied the script from CDJapan and pasted it into a text widget, but somehow it doesn't show up.

Hope you can help..thanks.
