Group/Kansai Johnny’s Jr.), Rin Kataoka and Ken Mitsuishi have announced their appearances and their comments have arrived.
Kaito Takahashi’s solo debut with romantic comedy-drama ‘Boyfriend Advent!’. Asahi, played by Takahashi, a mysterious young man with amnesia, and two 35-year-old women, played by Yuki Sakurai and Minami Tanaka, who are at a turning point in their lives. It is a “triangular romantic comedy” that depicts the love pattern of three men and women with a 12-year age difference. And this time, a variety of actors who will liven up the “love triangle” of the three people have been announced. Seiya Suezawa will play Kensuke Kurose, who works as a designer at a small advertising agency where Asahi works part-time. Kurose is a half-ass director, but for some reason he always speaks up and talks about it. During the announcement, Suesawa expressed his enthusiasm for the role, saying, “He’s a bit of a cheerful and cheeky young man, but I think it would be nice if he could be involved in this work as a good spice.” Additionally, Ken Mitsuishi plays Yuzo Aoyagi, the president of the advertising agency Kashiko works for, who hires Asahi as a part-time worker, and Rin Kataoka enthusiastically plays Emma Tsukui, the only woman who knows the past. from Asahi. Shuko Ito will play Mika Akai, who works for the ad agency that Kashiko works for, and Riki Honda will play Yodai Shiratori, Kashiko’s co-worker in charge of sales. This job has a lineup of talented cast members with exceptional individuality. It will be interesting to see how Takahashi et al.
I was really happy when I received the offer. My goal was to appear in one play and one video production per year, and at the same time, I felt happy that I was able to achieve that for the first time this year. Kensuke Kurose, who I play, is a somewhat cheerful and sassy young man, but I think it would be nice if I could be involved in this work like a good spice. This is the first time I’ve spoken properly with the lead actor, Takahashi-kun, but I hope I can learn different things during filming. I’d be happy if I could become As I was reading the script, I was already very curious how things would turn out from now on!? When I received the offer for this job, I was very happy and honored. It’s very comical, and I feel like it’s a work that lets each character’s personality shine through. So I think it’s going to be a job that will subconsciously draw you into the worldview and subconsciously pull you into every role. Please look forward to how Tsukui Emma, who I will be playing, will be involved in Asahi, Wataru, and Kashiko’s romantic relationships. Some of the co-stars are people I know at first sight, but I can’t wait to meet them all because I’m meeting them for the first time. In this work, there are words that are familiar to me, who was a member of the theater company after graduating from art school, such as topics related to the theater company and the school of art, so I’m curious. I play the role of Kashiko Chatani’s colleague, who is good at rumors. In what form will he be involved in the story in the future… I don’t know at this stage (laughs). It’s been a long time since I’ve done a drama, but it seems to have a strong sense of comedy, so hopefully I can enjoy it. When I was in high school, a senior member of the club said to me, “Honda is older and more popular, isn’t it?” However, I turned 43 without being popular with my age… or rather, without being popular at all. So, I’d like to enjoy this drama from beginning to end, thinking of Kaito Takahashi as “my elder’s prediction has come true.” With that in mind, when I read the script again, my excitement doubled. This work is a “triangular romantic comedy”, so I look forward to it. I’d like to kind of join in and do my best to become a “square romantic comedy” in the middle. I love comedy with a sense of speed like this, so I’m very honored to get the offer. I want to follow the young co-stars so I don’t get rattled! I’ve worked with Kaito Takahashi a few times so far, and I think his kindness and naturalness will make the role even more wonderful. I look forward to the filming site. It’s a romantic comedy that you can kick back on a Saturday night and watch while giddy, sometimes suspenseful and sometimes scary! Delighted to meet you!
