“Gaku”, starring Oguri Shun finishing filming
“Gaku,” starring Oguri Shun has finished shooting and the movie will be released sometime in 2011. Oguri plays the role of a mountain rescuer in the Japan alps.
Oguri started training 7 months ago for this movie by climbing 10 mountains, as well as learning rescue skills.
Oguri said, “Ioh-dake was the hardest. I did not know that snow could give me that much pain.”
The Ioh-dake mountain that he mentioned has altitude of 2,760 meter and when he climbed the mountain in February, the temperature was -25℃.
After all the hard training Oguri went through, he overcame his fear of heights.
“Gaku” is a serial manga in “Big Comic Original,” and received awards in 2008 and 2009.
