So it looks like most people want to read a translation of this article. It's a cute article, even if Jun did use a slang that none of my friends were familiar with. But that's what google is for! MWA! ENJOY!

Ginza Feb. 2009 The Beginning of the Relax Mode: Matsumoto Jun of 2009
The tumultuous year of 08 has ended, in the new year, what side of "Matsumoto Jun" will he show us?
While he wears some of the Spring/Summer designs of the top brands, the answer to the previous question might be hidden within.

One of Matsumoto's favored brand is Lanvin, and the relax mood of the ephemeral spring/summer collection. He complimented with, "It's not something that I can wear casually. But the fabrics have made me feel very satisfied. *laughs*"

"I own some small goods from this brand, but I have never worn a full outfit based solely on it. The fabrics, the silhouette, and the rough atmosphere makes it really easy to wear." (The brand, for those curious, is D-squared)

"Dior has a lot of very tight-fitting items. When I decide on something that needs to fit like a glove, I rely very heavily on Dior."

"Isn't this kind of strange!?" Even though Jun seemed uncomfortable, he still managed to pull off the androgynous look splendidly. This spring, the relaxed look like pajamas is a trend for women as well. (The brand is Ann Demeulemeester)

"This checkered [blazer,] it's cute! Every season, I always think that Junya [Watanabe]'s clothes are beautiful." This seems to be another brand that Jun is interested in. (The brands he wore are Comme des Garçons and Junya Watanabe.)

That day, Matsumoto Jun's brown jacket was torn(!); he showed up in a checkered shirt and suede pants.

"I'm wearing a lot of vintage today. Recently, I'm trying to project a softer image. If I have to chose between a black piece of clothing vs. a brown piece of clothing, I'd be more incline to go for the brown, and comfortable clothing. Today is like that too. Especially since it's a fashion spread, if I pick my clothes based on what's hip*, I would come to dislike the outfit. *laughs*"

It is not only his clothes that contribute to his gentle aura, it probably also has to do with the year that he has had. From movie premieres to concerts, it has been an extremely busy year for him with the combination of the fact that he also had to film end of the year specials for the various shows he appears in. It is only the feeling of ease that he showcases. So what type of action will we see from him in 2009?

"Until I'm 30, I think running [full speed ahead] would be better, but, it could be in the pace of walking with a carefree spirit, and then sprinting full speed ahead too. I don't know in what way I'd run yet, right now, I'm still lost. Last year was an extremely good year, from work to lifestyle, I have the impression that it was a step up. This year, I get an even stronger feeling that it is an important year. It is simply intuition at this point. But I'm the type who trusts in his instincts very strongly. Rather, it is probably though luck and intuition that I got to this point. *laughs*"

He doesn't seem like that type, right? Rather, everyone knows that he hates doing his job half heartedly. Even in a big dome, it is hard to feel any sense of closeness to the performer, on the one hand, we see what a spectacular live he puts up, but on another scale, it is also a widening of the horizon for this actor. So does he think that he was born for his current job?

"I don't think that way at all. How could I explain it? I've never done any other job but this job. Of course, I enjoy my current job, but I'm also interested in what else I could do in the future. Like, people who have always watched me, I wouldn't say to them, 'Please always support me, okay?' Of course, I'm extremely delighted that people give me encouragements and support, and the fact that we get to grow up together. But the interaction between individuals could also be fleeting, and it's okay if they only hold a mild interest in me. I'm more concern with, what can I communicate to them? What is the impact of my words to them? Of course, being obsessed is fine too... As for me, I can't return anything to them aside from my work."

Disinterested, is what I can discern from what he's saying, but consciously, even so, he does not give off that coldness. His attitude towards work and fans, is nothing but earnest.

He has depth to his thoughts, and so of course, life style wise, he would certainly give off that maturity.

"It started about half a year ago probably. I'd go home, and enjoy the time in which I drink alone. Even though there's only one chair in my kitchen, I'd sit in that chair, and drink about 1 to 2 glasses of whiskey on the rocks. I'd sit there and think about tomorrow comfortably or I wouldn't think about anything at all. During that time, I wouldn't put on music either. I like spaces that are permeated in quietness. I'm not the type to turn on the sound as soon as I get home. I also watch TV. Like news and variety shows, I'd watch shows that I go on to check them over. But I'm not the type to become completely absorbed in the shows that I go on. I'd say stuff like, 'Aiba really makes Arashi shows amusing, right?' Even though I've been watching them all along. *laughs*"

*He used the word "バッキバキ" in this sentence, and to the best of my abilities (and my friends') it is a slang mostly used by geeks/nerds to describe what's hip/in style. So if anyone knows what it really means, feel free to correct me.

Thanks for translating :D
HAHAHa, surprisingly, me and Matsujun have similiar tastes in clothing brands D:

With the exception of that Ann.. brand which I've never heard of before.
But Jun and Dior? Isn't Dior a little too womanly?!

haha. I love drinking alone at home.

Well, what he's wearing is the label Dior Homme, which is part of Dior. But a lot of women wear Dior Homme too... like their very famous black skinny jeans!

And the Ann Demeulemeester brand is mostly known for their prints? I don't hear about them often, but I think there was a big story about them last yr?

Thanks for reading!
