Dousousei – Hito wa, Sando, Koi wo Suru.

I’ve been running a little bit behind with drama news lately, because I only really write anything on here when it’s actually something that interests me at least a little personally. This morning I found out that Arata Iura is going to be playing the lead in a new drama called “Dousousei – Hito wa, Sando, Koi wo Suru” which will be airing on TBS from 10 July with a 9pm time slot. The drama is based off a manga with the same name(what a surprise) and is about people falling in love again. To be more specific, it’s about a group of 4(two females and two males) meeting each other for the first time in 25 years at a middle school re-union and starting relationships with each other. The drama will also be starring Masahiro Matsuoka, Izumi Inamori and Yuka Itaya.

I think that Arata Iura is a great actor and it’s good to see him in the lead role in something again. He played Asahina really well in Rich Man Poor Woman and I remember enjoying his acting in Mitsu no Aji(wow that was a while ago now) too. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to find any previews for this drama on YouTube and while there is a preview on the official website, it can’t be viewed by non-Japanese IP addresses. What a shame. Is anyone else interested in this drama? Whether or not I watch the whole thing will probably depend on the portrayal of the characters. I think portraying the lives of normal people approaching(or over) 40 might be a little boring. There’s no way to really tell until it airs though.

  1. Hey, that’s some interesting news – I hope Masahiro Matsuoka & Izumi Inamori duo will entertain us again, as they did before 🙂 Although, it seems that they will not appear as a couple this time, right?

  2. I am really looking forward to watching this. I don’t find it boring at all. Japan produces way too much high school dramas, which are very often repetitive, starring the same type of young idols (Johnny’s vs. AKB to caricature it a bit). A bit of diversity is good and neither actors nor real people are finished nor boring at 40. Only boring people are boring, but this is at any age…

  3. I will be interested in seeing this. There was something similar a few years ago, though not as much time had passed. It was high school friends meeting at a high school reunion., and was quite enjoyable. I agree with nekochan!

    I am not all that fond of Iura, but I will certainly agree he is a good actor. I have seen him in several dramas and TV specials.
