Hi Guys:

I can not believe this video.
The reporter was touching Dai's inner thigh.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d6cwMrNSdn8&feature=player_embedded

He was apparently gauging himself from her onslaught!
If this happens in US, this would constitute legitimate sexual harassment.

I really can not believe this.

Haha, I saw that video too yesterday... That part was soooo awkward, I can't believe she actually did it. Shocked You're right, this would be absolutely unthinkable in the US. But maybe it's not such a big deal in Japan?

Hi Calliope;

There are some comments from fans such as," Why didn't you say , No Dai-chan." " Oh, I envy her." "NO, No, (Yada-) Nobody touches like that."

I thought it is sexual harassment in Japan, too. but I am not sure anymore, since I live in US for a long time.

Other Japanese fans, what do you think?

I saw that vid yesterday and thought the exact same thing, guys. I was speechless at the sight of how that lady intruded Daisuke's personal space.

I tend to think she did it on purpose, to see what his reaction would be. But it's so paparazzi-style, not nice. Based on the fact that they actually aired that piece, the lady's bosses approve, obviously.

And what a reaction it was. Poor Daisuke. Looks like he ached to shove her hand aside but held back in front of the camera. The brightest example of bad manners confronting handsome ones >.<

Hello. Knowing both cultures, I thinkg it is OK for Japanese audience to see that the reporting person touches his tigh as she asked 'may I?'.

Yet, the problem is that she was kind of 'rubbing' his tigh, that:s a bit problematc. If she was only tapping it could have been OK, but rubbing his tigh is something that she shoud have avoided.

I think it is unusual even in Japan. Neutral
I sometimes see TV reporters touching athlete's body in order to show their well-developed muscles, but usually they touch arm muscles or like that, safer muscles to touch. As a figure skater, Dai-chan's thigh has developed better than his arm, the TV chose to show his thigh, I think.
It seemed that part of the TV program called "恒例の筋肉チェック". It means they do "muscle check" everytime when they interview athletes. I suppose the reporter must have got a permission from Dai-chan's side to touch his thigh, so it would not be a sexual harassment legally. (I don't think she suddenly went crazy and did it. If so, it was a harassment in Japan, too. )

Anyway I was a bit annoyed too. Neutral Neutral

Hi Miyu:

Thank you for sharing your opinion.

I know she got a permission, but not like that.
So awkward

Anyway, that must be a fate of a hot guy like Dai to be exposed to some type of sexual mishaps.

I was shocked to see some Nico video comments too.

Well, we just have to ignore them from now on.
