Fuji TV has just announced that 2PM’s Taecyeon is going to become a regular on their upcoming Sunday drama “Boku to Star no 99 Nichi“.
“Boku to Star no 99 Nichi” stars Japanese actor Nishijima Hidetoshi and South Korean actress Kim Tae Hee as the two main characters.
Earlier this month, it was already announced that the young actress Sakuraba Nanami was added to the cast, making Taecyeon the fourth known regular on the show.
The story is about a South Korean superstar named ‘Yuna‘ (Kim Tae Hee), who happens to fall in love with her Japanese bodyguard ‘Kohei‘ (Nishijima).
Taecyeon plays a mysterious young man called ‘Teson‘, who seems to share some kind of secret with Yuna that could have a big influence on her relationship with Kohei. Teson used to live towards a certain dream, but he had to give it all up due to some unknown events in his past. However, it is Kohei’s niece ‘Momo‘ (Sakuraba) that makes him pursue his dream once again. We will have to find out what kind of events led them to cross each other’s paths, but it could be related to Momo’s growing jealousy towards the relationship between Yuna and Kohei.
Taecyeon already played a couple of roles in Korean dramas, but it will be his first regular role on a Japanese drama.
The producer of the drama commented, “We needed someone who can
be mysterious and also make his presence felt by others at the same
time. Outside of his role, Taecyeon is a very polite and bright person,
who always manages to create a cheerful atmosphere at the set. He is
going to bring a breath of fresh air to the Japanese drama scene.”
Taecyeon commented, “It’s my first role in a Japanese drama and
I’m really happy to be able to work together with such a wonderful cast
and such an amazing staff. I will exert myself to the best of my
abilities in order to polish my acting as much as I can.”
“Boku to Star no 99 Nichi” will premier on Fuji TV on October 23rd and air every Sunday at 9 pm.
