Kis-My-Ft2' Fujigaya Taisuke to star in upcoming drama
It has been announced that Kis-My-Ft2 member Fujigaya Taisuke will be starring in TBS' upcoming drama series "Beginners!"
The drama will take place at a police academy, which is a boarding school that is under strict observation 24 hours a day. The story will feature the students of "S class", which is assembled from a bunch of dropouts, who are making strenuous efforts to become police officers.
Fujigaya's role will be of a 19-year-old student named "Shimura Teppei", who had a once dream of becoming a marathon runner, but ended up as a well-known delinquent after his police officer father lost his job and disappeared.
Fujigaya commented, "I just want to enjoy and learn, and become a police officer hero for everybody... The character and I share similarities in the things we cherish, such as the longing for a father, friendship, and dream, so I will be able to show it naturally. I would like to cherish my natural feelings."
Co-stars Gouriki Ayame and fellow Kis-My-Ft2 member, Kitayama Hiromitsu, will also appear in the drama as Fujigaya's classmates. Gouriki will be playing the heroine "Momoe Hiro", who chose to be a police officer just because it's a steady public servant job, but remains doubtful about her future. Kitayama's role will be "Tachibana Danji", who grew up in wealthy family but stopped going to school after his health deteriorated.
"Beginners!" will be aired every Thursday at 9:00 pm starting in July.
