On October 13th, Arashi’s Ohno Satoshi attended the pre-screening event for his upcoming movie “Kaibutsu-kun“. As reported previously, the movie will take place in India, and it follows the story of Kaibutsu-kun and his entourage’s adventures in the “Curry Kingdom.”
The event drew 1,700 fans, and Ohno rode on a big elephant to play up the theme of an exotic adventure. During the MC session, Ohno revealed that he bought ornaments in India as a souvenir for the other Arashi members, but unfortunately, all the members told him they didn’t want it.
Aside from Ohno, Yashima Norito, Ueshima Ryuhei, Matsuoka Masahiro, Kawashima Umika, Hamada Tatsuomi, and Inamori Izumi showed up in their costumes from the movie, and the original author, Fujiko Fujio A, appeared at the pre screening as well. Korean MMA Fighter Choi Hong Man, who appears in the movie as “Franken”, did not attend the pre-screening due to his recent scandal.
“Kaibutsu-kun” is scheduled to be released on November 26th in both 2D and 3D.
