Popular model Kurihara Rui will be making his acting debut.
His first appearance as an actor will be in upcoming horror movie “Zekkyou Gakkyuu” starring Kawaguchi Haruna.
“Zekkyou Gakkyuu” is based on an ongoing horror comic on “Ribbon” (Shueisha) written by Ishikawa Emi. The live-action adaptation will mainly consist of the stories “Yomi no Shinjitsu” (from the 3rd volume) and “Ningen Rank” (from the 8th volume), and it will depict the evilness that lies concealed in people’s minds.
Kurihara’s role will be that of the movie’s original character, “Sato Akira”, one of the people who bully the protagonist.
“I was full of anxiousness, since I have almost no experience in acting,” Kurihara said, and continued, “My heart was beating fast in a lot of ways when I read the script. I’m sure it will be the work that is highly praised by the fans of the original manga.”
“Zekkyou Gakkyuu” is set for release sometime this summer.
