Oguri Shun wears a kimono for his ‘Kitsutsuki to Ame’ stage greeting event
On January 18th, the cast members of upcoming movie ‘Kitsutsuki to Ame‘ gathered for a pre-screening event with their fans. While many were dazzled by the appearances of Oguri Shun, Yakusho Koji, and other cast members attended the pre-screening event for their new movie “Kitsutsuki to Ame” which will be released on February 11th.
This movie is set at a peaceful mountain village, which is home to a woodcutter named ‘Kishi Katsuhiko’ (played by Yakusho Koji). One day, Kishi somehow ends up helping a film crew who came to the village to film a zombie movie, and meets a faint-hearted rookie movie director named ‘Tanabe Koichi’ (played by Oguri Shun). Though the two avoided each other in the beginning, they gradually deepened their ties with to one another. The movie exhibits the strange, yet heart-warming collaboration between the villagers and the film crew.
Oguri made heads turn by appearing as the only cast member in a kimono. “Since the new year has come, I wanted to renew my resolutions. I would like to be an actor who people say is ‘The guy who always attends the stage greeting in a kimono‘,” he explained. However, Oguri realized that he stood out too much in a kimono, and so he bashfully quipped, “Everyone is calling me ‘Young master’ today. It seems like I put too much effort in my style. It is kind of embarrassing.”
During the pre-screening event, there was also an interactive corner where the cast members gave advice for the audience member’s hang-up.
Aside from Oguri and Yakusho, Furutachi Kanji, Ibu Masato, and the director of the movie, Okita Shuichi attended the event.
