On March 28th, actor Oguri Shun attended a premiere event for his latest film, “Uchuu Kyodai“.
This marked Oguri’s first public appearance since getting married to Yamada Yu earlier this month. As fans called out, “Congratulations!“, he blushed and said, “Thank you“.
Although a wedding ring wasn’t seen on his ring finger, Oguri stated, “If I talk about it too much here, every article tomorrow will be about it. So today, I would like to just talk about the movie.”
“Uchuu Kyodai” is based on Koyama Chuuya’s popular manga of the same title. It tells a story about two brothers who promises to become astronauts when they’re older. As time passes by, the younger brother Hibito (Okada Masaki) has become an astronaut, however, the older brother Mutta (Oguri) is unemployed after being fired from his job. Although the brothers live two very different lives, Mutta receives a message from Hibito, which motivates him to aim for his dream once again.
Along with Oguri, Okada, Tsutsumi Shinichi, Arai Hirofumi, Inoue Yoshio, Shiomi Sansei, and Director Mori attended the event. The cast livened up the crowd by discussing their dreams as a child.
Tsutsumi commented, “I wanted to play for the Hanshin Tigers (professional baseball). Right now, I want to follow Oguri-kun’s example and get married.”
In response, Oguri joked, “When I was a child, I saw Higashiyama Noriyuki-san’s drama ‘The Chef‘, and wanted to become that kind of chef. Right now, I want Tsutsumi-san to get married.”
“Uchuu Kyodai” will open in theaters on May 5th.
