      Everyone wants some Arashi :)

      And look at all members of Arashi being the rank. The national boyfriends >_<

    • Dramafan

      I’m happy for Aiba he used to considered the least popular and the least attractive in arashi but now people are waking up for the fact that he’s good looking and his popularity is rising 😄

      • I think its been years since Aiba hasnt been slept on. After all, he’s been topping the CF ranking for 2 years in a row already.

    • So glad Aiba ain’t slept on anymore.

      No shade to Arashi, but it’s weird seeing them dominate the list when there’s much better looking actors out there….. I guess they considering personality since they’re all over variety and whatnot lol.

        It’s not a “most handsome”-ranking, it’s a boyfriend ranking, isn’t it obvious people are going to consider personality.. That and Arashi is still #1 in popularity despite their decline.

      • liuuu

        yeah, it seems japan considering personality and popularity more.
        the voters mostly about how it would be fun to date Arashi members.
        though I think some still love on good looking like Yamapi and Takeuchi Ryoma there

    • bailey darbii
