Koizumi Kotaro to star in TBS summer drama "Namonaki Doku"

Koizumi Kotaro will take on the leading role in the upcoming TBS summer 2013 drama "Namonaki Doku" which is based on a novel series by Miyabe Miyuki that has three volumes released to date, accumulated sales of 2 million copies and won the Yoshikawa Eiji award in 2007. Miyabe was said to have agreed to the dramatic adaptation of her work on the sole condition that Koizumi will play the lead character which the latter commented that he was very honoured but worried at the same time about the pressure of being the lead. This is the first time in 4 years that Koizumi will take on a leading role since his first attempt in TV Asahi's 2009 drama "Call Centre no Koibito". The drama is expected to cover the story in "Namonaki Doku" and the novel before it "Dare ka Somebody".

Koizumi plays the role of Sugimura Saburo, who is the son of a bigwig in the political and financial worlds and marries the daughter of Imata Conglomerate's chairman. He works in the PR department of the company and is a careful and mild-mannered man who starts to investigate a case which he's embroiled in unwittingly.

Filming will begin in early June.

So excited for the new drama of Koizumi Kotaro. He is so underrated. Yup I watched
Call Center no Koibito for him. I think the role in the drama will suit him just
fine, after all he is the son of a bigwig in the japanese political world. * sideeyes
the former PM of Japan*

Geez, it's been that long since Call Center? I feel old lol. He has such an interesting look and he's a good actor, but he's always in shows I'm not interested in or aren't subbed.
