Ohno Satoshi to unlock mysterious cases in Fuji TV’s next Monday drama
Two networks have just announced a new drama for the upcoming season and they both will be starring a member from the popular group Arashi. One of the networks is Fuji TV, who finally lifted the secret about their next Monday drama. It’s title is going to be ‘Kagi no Kakatta Heya‘ and will star Ohno Satoshi as the protagonist.
‘Kagi no Kakatta Heya’ is based on a mystery novel by Kishi Yuusuke. It tells the story of an employee of a major security firm (Ohno), who is solving the mysteries related to cases that happened behind closed doors. His job is to find out how the perpetrator entered the locked room and how he managed to leave it under such circumstances. He’s the best fit for the job, because he’s personally obsessed with keys and locks and even goes as far as claiming that ‘there are no locks that cannot be broken’. At first glimpse he looks like a calm and collected guy, but in the heat of solving the mystery behind a locked room he’s burning with an incredible tenacity. He’s an unconventional hero who is helping with cases one request after another.
For Ohno this is not only going to be his first Monday drama starring role, but also his first starring role on Fuji TV in general. He’s going to receive the baton from fellow Arashi member Matsumoto Jun, who is starring in this season’s Monday drama ‘Lucky Seven‘.
He commented, “It’s been a while since my last role as a human being. You’ll meet me behind closed doors!”
Toda Erika chosen as the heroine for Ohno Satoshi’s upcoming drama
As we reported previously, Arashi’s Ohno Satoshi will star in the next “Getsu9″ drama “Kagi no Kakatta Heya“, and today, it was announced that Toda Erika has been chosen as the heroine for the drama. This will be the first time for Ohno and Toda to co-star with each other, and also, the first time for Toda to play the role of a lawyer.
This drama tells the story of a protagonist, Enomoto Kei (Ohno) who is obsessed with keys and locks, and solves the mysteries related to cases that happened behind closed doors. Toda will play a rookie lawyer named Aoto Junko. Toda’s role is that of a very pure and positive girl, where she takes actions by instinct, thus sometimes saying astounding things, causesing trouble for people around her. The story starts where Junko offers Enomoto help to solve an incident that happened behind closed doors, when she happens to see Enomoto easily unlock a heavy vault door.
Toda commented, “While many mystery dramas are being made recently, I am also looking forward as a viewer to see what future developments there will be in this drama.”
