Jun Matsumoto’s new drama

I think Jun Matsumoto’s last drama was Bambino (if I’m not mistaken). But now he is going to star in a new drama alongside Yui Aragaki (the girl from Koizora, the movie version). It’s going to be entitled Smile.

Jun Matsumoto plays a half-Filipino whose father has died and mother has disappeared. Despite his misfortune and the issues he deals with, such as race, he lives his life positively with a constant smile.

Similarly, Gakky plays a young woman living cheerfully despite losing her ability to speak due to an accident. Her character is said to be modeled after a real actress in the theatrical troupe that Takuma runs.

“Smile” will air on Friday nights at 10:00pm, starting in April.

I hope this one would be nice 😀 ehehe can’t wait!

Zettai Kareshi Special

Zettai Kareshi (Absolute Boyfriend) returns!!! Yay!


I saw this article on asianfanatics. The drama is coming back with a special episode. The special will be entitled “Zettai Kareshi ~Kanzen Muketsu no Koibito Robot”. According to the article that I’ve read, the special will continue from where the drama ended. Hayami Mokomichi (Regatta) will be coming back as Tenjo Night (Nighto-kun!). Aibu Saki (Regatta) and Mizushima Hiro (Hana Kimi) will be reprising their roles. This will be broadcasted by Fuji TV sometime this spring.


I can’t wait for Nighto-kun to be back! I miss this series!!
