In what appears to be a most anticipated drama coming up, Shohei Miura did a crossover to the younger batch of actors led by Kento Yamazaki and Shuhei Nomura for a squaring off [ as opposed to love ‘triangle’ ] with Mirei Kiritani.
Incidentally, Kiritani was Yamazaki’s love interest in the box office hit Heroine Disqualified. Miura is the eldest among three siblings, with Nomura and Yamazaki playing the other two. Mirei Kiritani is an aspiring chef while Miura is her first love in high school. Their lives crossed path a few years later as Miura is now embarking on a career as a restauranteur with his brothers Nomura and Yamazaki. As the drama unfolds, Kiritani’s character will have romantic episodes with the brothers.
As the more senior J-drama watchers are aware, Shohei Miura belongs to Haruma Miura’s batch of actors and has been known to play both leading and supporting parts, with some surprising (and disappointing) results. Shuhei Nomura, on the other hand, is steadily gaining a lot of momentum as he gets to play diverse roles (Litchi Hikari Club, Chihayafuru, and Moriyamachu Driving School, among others).

While Yamazaki has been identified with a ‘particular’ genre (the romcom scene, which also belongs to Shohei’s contemporary Haruma Miura), fans are clamoring for a change of pace for the young and famous actor. I thought the latest promotional photos for Wolf Girl and Black Prince were Nanao slaps Kento is the hottest buzz, but I was certainly wrong on that account, this drama is!
The FujiTV new romantic drama entitled Sukina Hito ga Iru Koto [ 好きな人がいること] will air this coming July as a Getsu9 offering.
