Horikita Maki’s Innocent Love

with 3 comments

Horikita Maki has landed herself another lead drama role, starring in a romance drama tentatively titled “Innocent Love”. This drama is a Fuji TV production and is scheduled to air during the Monday night time slot this fall, premiering in October.

This drama is based on original work written by Taeko Asano, who also wrote “Last Friends” which turned out to be a hit this spring. Innocent Love, another hit? Maybe.(:

The story centers around the tragic heroine Kanon Akiyama (Horikita). As a child, she lost both her parents to a murderer, and her older brother was arrested as the prime suspect. Shunned by her town as the sister of a killer, she heads to Tokyo and picks up a job as a housecleaner. There, she has a fateful encounter with a man, but the road to romance is fraught with difficulty.

Horikita is starring in Fuji TV’s key time slot for the first time for this dorama. Maybe expectations have gone up after her popularity shot up after acting as Ashiya Mizuki in Hana Kimi last year alongside Oguri Shun and Ikuta Toma. But I’m sure this rising star will also rise up to the occasion.

Go Maki-chan!

News reveal that Japanese actor Hayami Mokomichi will be starring in a drama by NTV this coming fall. Though the show is still untitled yet, it is said that Hayami will challenge the papa role.

Hayami who just acted in the recent popular dorama “Zettai Kareshi”, winning the hearts of many girls with his pure robotic love and ikemen-standard look, this coming drama and character that he’s going to take on is deemed to be rather refreshing?

In this new drama, Hayami plays the role of Kotaro Yamashita, an aspiring young novelist working part-time at a publishing company. He leads the life of a poor bachelor, but along the way he got stuck with 6-year-old An, an impatient but gifted child actress, forcing him to take the role of a fatherly figure. Rosa Kato has been cast as An’s manager in the show.

See our Zettai Kareshi transform into Zettai Otousan? =p

Aki, member of vocal group MAX, will be leaving the group at end of this month to pursue her own solo career as a singer-songwriter. This announcement came through via MAX’s official website and fan club.

With this member’s departure, the group will be down to only 3 members. Hopefully MAX will be able to continue on even with a decrease in number, and may Aki find a new future in her new career path.
