Arashi's leader, Ohno Satoshi (27) will fulfill his first lead role in his first appearance in a drama series. "Maou" will start on TBS in July as a remake of the "Maou" that was aired on Korea's KBS, the suspense drama that created a social phenomenon. He will turn into a cruel, vengeful demon (devil), so he and Ikuta Toma (23) who will play the double lead role as the detective with a dark past will show us a breathtaking battle.

Ohno is a kind lawyer who usually saves the weak. However, in order to wreck vengeance on the one who murdered his beloved younger brother, he uses his brilliant mind to progress with his plans. On the other hand, Ikuta, who became a passionate detective due to his dark past, investigates the mysterious murder cases that began with an arrival of tarot cards. Their breathtaking battle will develop.

Ohno has displayed his talents through variety shows, stage plays, as well as the opening of his exhibition in February this year with his art and figurines, but surprisingly it's his first time as a regular in a drama series. Smiling, he says, "When I heard about the drama appearance, I thought it was a prank. I really laughed inside. Must be a lie..." Without delay, in order to play his role, he had his hair dyed black at a salon but, even then, he says, "I thought it was a prank and searched for TV cameras."

The drama was aired in February, 2007 on Korea's KBS, and was a suspense drama that created a social phenomenon in Korea to the extent of having a gathering open for thousands of drama fans called the "Maou Tribe". Producer Takahashi Masanao (33) tells us the reasons for this casting: "Besides the gentle face that Ohno-san has during variety shows, he also has mysterious charm where he produces art pieces, so it will be far more frightening for a person like him to play this role. On the other hand, while Ikuta-san has a noble face, his passion is his charm. The ultimate struggle to the death between these two will be the highlight [of the drama]." Ikuta also says with high spirits, "This is a new challenge for me." Filming is expected to begin the end of this month.

PS: Takahashi Masanao was the producer for Yamada Tarou Monogatari.

no way they could act as good as ohno did or ikuta ( actually ikuta was bad). Ohno was soo good, he had like one facial expression but he could display so many different emotions, which is awesome. no way yamapi ( stone acting) or jun( childish acting ) could have done it.
for me nino was the best johnny in acting but now i have to say ohno
