Berryz Koubou & C-ute attend pre-screening event for their new horror movie
On the 9th, idol groups Berryz Koubou and C-ute attended a pre-screening event for their new horror movie “Ousama Game” (King Game).
This is the first time that all the members of both groups have appeared in a movie, which brought about a friendly bragging competition between the two groups. C-ute’s leader Yajima Maimi boasted about her group, “We have great unity and teamwork”. The comment only caused Berryz Koubou’s captain Shimizu Saki to spout back, “No way, Berryz won’t lose when it comes to unity.” After the fireworks went off between the groups, Shimizu commented, “We’re all really good friends, but we’re rivals too.”
“Ousama Game” is a suspense-horror film that is based off of the popular mobile novel by the same name. It’s about a “king” who keeps commanding a high school class to do certain things. The main protagonist, Chiemi, is played by Berryz Koubou member Kumai Yurina. It has been roughly eight years since the last time she was in a movie, “I was so nervous that I couldn’t eat. There was just so much pressure,” she commented.
Also, when Kumai was asked what she would make the members do if she were a ‘king’ she responded with, “I’m the tallest, so I would make all of the members besides me grow taller. I want to be the shortest.” The unreasonable order caused the other members to burst out laughing.
“Ousama Game” will be in theaters on December 17th.
