“Is Sakurai okay?” The reason Arashi fans are worried about Sakurai Sho

This year, Sakurai Sho has once again been chosen to be main newscaster for the 2012 London Olympics. However, lately Arashi fans have been expressing concern since it seems that “Sakurai Sho won’t come out to the public.” 

A fan claims that, “When Aiba or Nino are waving their hands and greeting, Sho always escapes in a car out of sight. It’s never been like that until now.”

Fans who wait to see an idol are of course a big part of an idol’s life. Since Arashi members are especially famous for being kind to their fans who wait to see them, the fans are now beginning to ask, “Is Sakurai okay?” So, what in the world has happened to Sakurai Sho?

Yamada Yu to play a model with a special vision in new mystery drama

On May 30, it was announced that model and actress Yamada Yu is going to star in the upcoming NTV mystery drama ‘VISION Koroshi ga Mieru Onna‘. It will be Yamada’s first drama role since her marriage with actor Oguri Shun on March 14.

In the drama, Yamada portrays an unpopular fashion model who suddenly develops the ability to see murder scenes before the murders occur. Together with a temporarily suspended detective, played by Kaneko Nobuaki, they begin to use her unique precognition – her “VISION” – in order to solve various difficult crimes. The original script is written by Iida Jouji (‘NIGHT HEAD’, ‘Gift’, ‘Sasho Taeko – Saigo no Jiken’).

Yamada commented, “When I read the script, I thought that its story development is unlike any other Japanese dramas. I can’t wait to play my character.” She continued, “It’s a starring role, but I don’t want to think too much about it or I will get all worked up. If possible, I’d like to challenge it like any other role.” On the other hand, she knows that she has to exert herself, “I am married, so it feels like I have to work even harder now.

For Kaneko, it was natural to accept the offer, since he’s said to be a huge fan of Iida’s works. “It’s an honor to act in one of his stories,” he said.

Katsumura Masanobu is also going to appear in the drama as the manager of the protagonist’s model agency.
