Koura Kengo will appear in the movie "Kiyoku Yawaku" starring Nagasawa Masami and Okada Masaki as a 15-year-old senior high school student. The movie which is due to be shown from 26 October, is based on the shoujo manga by Ikuemi Ryou which features Nagasawa and Okada as Seto Kanna and Akazawa Roku who fall in love while bearing the scars of a tragic past. Koura's role is Haruta Kazue, a childhood friend of Kanna who passed away due to a traffic accident when he was 15 and on his way to meet Kanna. As a result of Haruta's death, it affected Kanna in a big way.
Koura has two movies "Yokomichi Younosuke" and "Sennen no Yuuraku" which are currently showing in cinemas with two other movies "Kenchou Omotenashika" due to be shown in May and "Bushi no Kondate" in December. This time, he has to play someone 10 years younger than his actual age so Koura commented that he was eagerly expecting to say lines which he would never say at his current age in order to portray the feeling of being in love through the movie.
