Matsumoto Jun, Eita & Oizumi Yo to star in next Fuji TV Monday drama
Earlier oday, Fuji TV revealed the first details about their Monday-9pm ('Getsu 9') drama for the winter season that will begin airing in January.
This season we get to enjoy a great female cast in a drama all about love and problems of women with "Watashi ga Renai Dekinai Ryuu". Next season we can look forward to a real action drama called "Lucky Seven", starring Arashi's Matsumoto Jun, Eita, and Oizumi Yo as the members of a detective agency.
The story focuses on the seven members, three men and four women, that operate a small detective agency in Kitashinagawa, Tokyo. Teamwork is definitely going to be a strong theme of the drama, but it will be the original and thrilling cases that are going to keep the viewers at the edge of their seats.
Moreover, the viewers can look forward to some great action scenes, as Fuji TV was able to have "GANTZ" director Sato Shinsuke on board for the production. Aside from other activities, he will be in charge of all the action scenes. It's said that it's going to be the most thrilling drama Fuji TV has ever aired in their Monday time slot. Thus far, this time slot has been known more for its intense love stories rather than thrilling action dramas.
Matsumoto is going to portray the newest addition to the team, a real novice detective, who is completely absorbed in everything the job has to offer. Meanwhile, Eita is going to slip into the role of a really cool and calm guy, who regularly ends up in a confrontation with the new member due to their opposite personalities. Oizumi, as the senior of the two, will act as the self-proclaimed "middle man" and try to get them back on the same page whenever it's necessary. Aside from that, he actually turns out to be quite a puzzling guy himself.
For Matsumoto, it has been a year and a half since his last Monday starring role in the drama, "Natsu no Koi wa Nijiiro ni Kagayaku". He stated with confidence, "I think it's going to become an intense drama, featuring seven completely different individuals. It will keep you excited and also make you laugh. I'm already all excited to have some great time with this team."
Eita commented, "It looks like there are going to be a lot of action scenes together with Matsumoto. I want to sync with him to the best of my abilities."
Oizumi seems to be quite eager as well, but he still is calm enough to joke around. He said, "The tension is incredible. It's a getsu 9 drama after all! Please look forward to the love-triangle between Matsumoto, Eita, and me. (laughs)"
Lastly, Matsumoto added, "We want to show some great teamwork that will make all viewers want to join this team!"
The female members of the team have yet to be revealed.
