INFINITE’s L to make his acting debut in “Jiu”

L from Korean Pop Group Infinite will be making his acting debut in the upcoming drama, “Jiu Keishicho Tokushuhan Sousagakari“, alongside Kuroki Meisa and Tabe Mikako.
L will be playing the role of Jiu, a blonde haired criminal who has excellent vision and reflexes, with no sense of pain. He commented,”I’m a little nervous to be chased by two beautiful police women.” While this difficult role is a challenge for a drama debut, L says, “I heard many stories of the producer and decided to take the challenge. I like to work hard, so I will work hard for this role.” He also added, “I will be working as an actor, not as INFINITE’s L. I hope people will see a new side of me and will continue to watch me grow.”
This drama will be a live-action adaptation of the novel series, “Jiu”, written by Honda Tetsuya. The suspense drama with the theme of love is about 2 very different female detectives who chase the leader of vicious crimes.
With hopes of rising a new star, producer Oe Tatsuki commented, “I remember the moment I met him, I thought, ‘Jiu exists!’, and had goosebumps.”
“Jiu” will start airing in July from 11:15 pm.

Kuroki Meisa, Tabe Mikako co-star in suspense series “Jiu”
Kuroki Meisa (23) and Tabe Mikako (22) are acting together for the first time, co-starring in a drama series this summer called “Jiu: Keishichou Tokushuhan Sousakei.” The two will play police detectives on the same special investigation team, though their differing personalities lead them to constantly clash with each other.
Tabe has previously starred in a few television dramas, but this will be the first lead role in a series for Kuroki.
The show is based on the “Jiu” suspense novel series by Honda Tetsuya. Motoko (Kuroki) is a fierce, physically capable investigator with a strong battle instinct, while Misaki (Tabe) is more intellectual, kind-hearted, and naive. The two of them are both working to track down Jiu, the ringleader responsible for a series of brutal crimes.
The original novels also detailed the characters’ love lives, including intense bedroom scenes between Motoko and her lover. It is not yet known how the drama series will depict that aspect of the story.
Shirota Yu (25) plays a mysterious man connected to Motoko somehow, while Kitamura Yukiya (37) plays a police superior. According to TV Asahi, the role of Jiu will not be played by a Japanese person, but instead by a popular music artist from overseas.
The series will begin in July and air in TV Asahi’s Friday 11:15pm time slot.
