  • NAOTO as the Main Character In a Drama Special

     

    EXILE member NAOTO (26) has been chosen to star in a drama special titled "Okagesama de!" The show is being produced jointly by the Aichi-based Chubu-Nippon Broadcasting (CBC) and the Junior Chamber International Nagoya, which are both celebrating their 60th anniversaries.
    The story is described as a love comedy set in Nagoya. The project was first revealed in May, but details were sparse until now. In addition to NAOTO as the main character, the cast will include Nako Mizusawa (16), Keiko Toda (53), and SKE48′s Rena Matsui (19). Toda is originally from Nagoya, while SKE48 is based there.
    Director Yukihiko Tsutsumi has also been tapped for the project, partly because he also hails from Nagoya.
    CBC will broadcast the drama on September 18, starting at 3:00pm.
