teppei koike’s older lover!

leave a comment »

Boyish looking Teppei Koike, will be starring in a new TBS drama titled “Ohitorisama” next season, alongside with female lead Alisa Mizuki.

This drama will depict an atypical romantic relationship between the younger Koike and the older Mizuki. Mizuki plays a teacher at a prestigious girls school, who excels in the workplace, but not with the household chores. She then falls in love with her colleague (Koike) and began living together.

Interesting mix of events will happen, highlighting the differences between these two people.

Japanese viewers will be able to catch this drama starting this October!

(Teppei, kakoi…) ^^

horikita maki’s new dorama

leave a comment »

Japanese rising star Horikita Maki will take on a very different role from her usuals for her next upcoming dorama (: This Fuji TV series is yet untitled but it is mentioned in Tokyograph that she will be acting as a homeless person.

As quoted by Tokyograph, “In the drama, Horikita’s character is burdened with 100 million yen worth of debt after her gambling father disappears. Chased out of her home by collectors, she is forced to sleep in places like internet cafes. However, she meets the president of a major company who offers to pay off the debt if she marries him, and she soon finds herself moving in with a rather eccentric family.”

This show will start its run in Japan in April this year.

Is it gonna be the typical poor-girl-meets-rich-guy type of show? But since the male lead is said to come from a rich and eccentric family, perhaps things might be a tad more interesting. 😉

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!

what’s next, Hayami Mokomichi?

leave a comment »

(Tokyograph)

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

Matsumoto Jun in new show

with 5 comments

(Tokyograph)

Reports reveal that Arashi member Matsumoto Jun will be acting in a drama special titled “Myu no Anyo, Papa ni Ageru”.. The drama special will be broadcasted as part of NTV’s charity programme “24 Hour Television.

And guess what, it’s coming out on Matsumoto Jun’s 25th birthday (:

The drama is based on a true story about a young man (played by Matsumoto) who learns he has a rare illness known as CIDP, which affects the nervous system. He begins to lose the functioning of his limbs, but he is determined to fight the illness with the support of his wife and his 2-year-old daughter, Myu-chan. The kind of plot sounds rather similar to tearjerker drama Ichi Rittoru no Namida, but considering the latter’s popularity when it was aired back then, this drama is set to soar! Not to mention, we have some Matsujun magic going on here.

Stay tuned.
