On June 17th, it was revealed that Arashi's Ohno Satoshi will be starring in 'Kyou no Hi wa Sayonara', which will air as a special drama for NTV's '24-Hour Television 36 Ai wa Chikyuu wo Sukuu' on August 24th. 


Ohno will play Kota, a 29-year-old man who is suddenly diagnosed with a type of blood cancer called malignant lymphoma. While given 3 months to live, he makes a resolve to accept his fate and face death properly. 

 

"I want to sincerely face this difficult theme of 'live properly, die properly.' I also want to thoroughly face Kota and properly portray his 'strong will'," Ohno expressed.

 

Ohno is the third member from Arashi to play a lead role in 24-Hour Television's special drama following Matsumoto Jun's 'Myu no Anyo Papa ni Ageru' (2008) and Ninomiya Kazunari's 'Kuruma Isu de Boku wa Sora wo Tobu' (2012). 

 

The story is based on Miyuki Kazuya's original novel, 'Oozora e no Tabidachi: Gan to Tatakainagara mo Yumemiteita Mirai'. The script will be written by Hashibe Atsuko, who was in charge of the Fuji TV drama, 'Freeter, Ie wo Kau' (2010).

Yeay Ohno's new drama!!! 

It's another sad human drama for the 24 hour tv. It's not that I hate it, but can they change the theme once or so like humor. I think japanese people will still watch it.

Wow, all of the dramas in this series have main characters that are ill/disabled.

In Myu no Anyo Papa ni Ageru, Jun played a man with CIDP, which caused him to not be able to use his limbs. I saw that a while ago and it was so painful to watch.

And in Kuruma Isu de Boku wa Sora wo Tobu, Kazu played a man who damaged his spinal cord and was confined to a wheelchair. I haven't seen that but it looks very good.

I really like the idea of getting Arashi members to play these roles..it not only allows them to act in mature roles - it also opens the public's eye to the pain that people who develop these conditions must go through. I'm looking forward to this new installment, especially because Satoshi will be in it ♥

Yay~! I'll be looking forward to this! 

I've bought and watched DVDs of Matsumoto Jun's 'Myu no Anyo Papa ni Ageru' and Ninomiya Kazunari's 'Kuruma Isu de Boku wa Sora wo Tobu', so I should keep an eye on this one too.

This is perfect! I really like his acting skills ( I've seen him in Maou and Kagi no Kakatta Heya) and the story seems interesting ( I have a liking for this type of stories). I'm looking forward to watching it!
