darling は外国人!

leave a comment »

Japanese actress Mao Inoue, famous for her role in the hot-selling HYD series, is now teaming up with actor Jonathan Sherr for a movie adaptation of the manga “Darling wa Gaikokujin” (literally meaning, my darling is a foreigner)

In this manga series, the mangaka Saori Oguri depicts her own relationship with her spouse who was an American journalist. Till date, about 2 million copies of its 4 volumes are sold, with the latest one covering content of the birth of their son.

Filming is said to be in progress already, though not much details are released yet. The movie is set to be released in spring next year.

Can’t really imagine Inoue with a gaikokujin together, should be quite an interesting combination (:
