- New star is coming - Abe Aran lead the new midnight drama
It has been announced that Yamashita Tomohisa‘s upcoming movie, “Kinkyori Renai“, will have a spin-off series this summer on NTV. The drama is titled, “Kinkyori Renai~Season Zero~“, and will star Johnny’s Jrs. Abe Aran and Kishi Yuta.
In the movie where Yamashita plays the role of a tsundere high school teacher named Sakurai Haruka, the spin-off series will be about Sakurai Haruka’s high school life that will be played by Abe.
This is Abe’s first lead role though he had played bit parts in dramas like “49” and “SHARK~Season 2~“. Abe feels uneasy because of the pressure but he’s happy at the same time; Abe confessed looking-up to Yamapi’s cool demeanor which only adds to his anxiety. He also hoped that the audience will be able to understand more about Haruka’s character from his past.
Joining Abe and Kishi is actress Ishibashi Anna.
“Kinkyori Renai~Season Zero~” will air this July 19th at 24:50 (JST).
