It has been earlier reported that Kanjani8’s Maruyama Ryuhei will have his first lead role for the upcoming drama, “Boys on the Run”. The drama is based from Kengo Hanazawa’s manga that talks about a 27 year-old man named Toshiyuki Tanishi who has never dated, a lousy salaryman, still lives with his parents, and watches a lot of porn. However, he aims to change his current situation upon meeting a woman who doesn’t seem to be put-off with his situation and flaws.
In lieu to Ryuhei’s drama, Kanjani8 next single “Aoppana” will be used as the theme song for the drama. No further details have been released yet.
“Boys on the Run” will start airing on July 6th at TV-Asahi.
