Kamenashi Kazuya and Tamaki Koji form a new unit

On September 22nd, it was revealed that KAT-TUN's Kamenashi Kazuya and actor/singer Tamaki Koji have formed a new unit. This was announced during a press conference for NTV's new drama 'Tokyo Band Wagon ~Shitamachi Daikazoku Monogatari~'.

In the drama, Tamaki and Kamenashi will play a father and son who always fight. Their unit is called 'Hotta-ke BAND' and they will be in charge of the drama's theme song "Sayonara☆Arigatou".

On his first time collaborating with Tamaki, Kamenashi commented, "I bought Tamaki-san's CDs when I was a child, so I was nervous to sing a song with someone I used to watch. I was able to have an exciting experience."

When the unit was announced, Tamaki's first words were, "We will disband Anzen Chitai and KAT-TUN." Immediately, Kamenashi said, "We won't!" and brought laughter among the crowd.

Kamenashi also reflected on the recording with Tamaki, "We recorded it a total of about 10 times, but it didn't even take an hour." Tamaki added, "I thought we had to live up to expectations so we remade it 3 times."

The first episode of 'Tokyo Band Wagon ~Shitamachi Daikazoku Monogatari~' will air on October 12th at 9:00 pm.

The song and Kame's voice seems refreshing, since it seems nothing like what he is used to sing.

And I wasn't expecting this drama but Kame looks sooo good in it, I might give it a try.

Even though I'm really hoping for KAT-TUN new single for Kame drama, and was a bit disappointed yesterday when I found out this news, I change my mind this morning. This songs is so refreshing, and the father-son combi is just too cute! Kame looks really happy, and that's all matters to me. And the drama looks better than it sounds too! I'm fully supporting this!

But I still wants KAT-TUN new single. For Yucchi drama, please??? Or at least, SOMETHING from them before the year ends! Thank you.

btw, OP. This is not the 1st time KAT-TUN skips singing for Kame drama. That is if you count the ones before KAT-TUN debut ^_~ For me, this isn't the first time.

we're on the same boat with the disappointment turned excitement for the opening theme..aside from the song being refreshing, PV looks great from what's been shown so far..

fingers crossed for any KAT-TUN group activities announcements in the very near future..

Kame has always been my biaised and he looks SO happy here....But I seriously can't enjoy the song, let alone the PV if KAT-TUN doesn't have new group activities.

Uh...this song is not getting me yet. Maybe i'll like it later?

I miss Seishun amigo :(

Am I the only one that feels bad for Innocchi??

He is a JE too...
exdream1999 23rd-Sep-2013 08:18 am (UTC)
The song features two actors playing father and son, who are the leads.

Innocchi plays a neighbor who's in love the Kame's character's older sister, and is obviously a supporting character.

The song has very little to do with who's JE or not, and more to do with the two lead actors both also being famous singers too.

It's so cute how Kame immediately insisted that they are not going to disband KAT-TUN.
