Aragaki Yui to be kidnapped by Ohno Satoshi in drama special
Earlier this month, it was revealed that Arashi member Ohno Satoshi (31) will star in a drama special titled “Mou Yuukai Nante Shinai,” based on a novel by “Nazotoki wa Dinner no Ato de” author Higashigawa Tokuya. Today, it was announced that Aragaki Yui (23) will play the heroine of the story, who asks Ohno’s character to pretend to kidnap her.
As previously described, the drama combines comedy and mystery as it tells the story of a part-time worker named Shotaro who dreamed of becoming a superhero when he was younger. One day, he gets approached by a “rich female college student” named Erika who asks for help because she is being “chased by bad people.” Shotaro sees this as his opportunity to become a hero and agrees to fake her kidnapping.
The cast includes Sato Ryuta as Shotaro’s co-worker, Kanjiya Shihori as Erika’s sister Satsuki, Narimiya Hiroki as Satsuki’s college senpai, Kaname Jun, Takahashi Katsumi, and Kitaoji Kinya.
Fuji TV will broadcast the special on January 3, 2012, at 9:00pm.
