I'm really glad to be first time starring in a movie that the images of musical movies Kobayashi-san and Iwai-san creates. An image not possible within KAT-TUN, I'm really looking forward to acting as such an artist. I think this will become a Japanese movie that has never seen before, so everyone please come to the theater and watch it.

Jin will have 5 or more songs being performed in the film and expecting to have a band CD debut in real life!

I feel a little weird about this movie though. It is a movie, how come it takes a lot of time? It's NOT a drama~~ 2010??? They will start the filming in November 3. That is 2 years! That takes a lot of time
