If you haven't heard, now you have, if you have heard, SORRY.
Yokoyama Yuu has been rumored on the elusive 2ch message boards to be staring in a lead role for a drama in the fall season.
The Japanese fans posting are shocked that Yokoyama is rumored to have this lead role, comments ranging from "wtf, this is a joke" to " maybe he can do it?" (mostly WTF this is a joke gtfo
Also, " Why isn't Ninomiya being talked about? " and then replies with " Because its not shocking to everyone that he has a lead role "
and " Akanishi/Tackey is/are going to have a drama " " No he isn't " " GTFO Akanishi-otakus/Takizawa-otakus "
Untitled Fall Drama, With an Original Medical Story ->
Yokoyama Yuu - Lead Role
People have guessed, so far, its based off of BLACK JACK.
Someone mentioned MONSTER (its this weird drama with like living nazis and this doctor that killed someone, its weird), but I really doubt it.
EDIT: Someone also mentioned the manga JIN (Benevolence)
From what I read, this story is about a 34 year old doctor head of neurosurgery. While working he apparently finds a man with a fetus on his head and like he starts to hear voices, falls down the stairwell, and ends up in the middle of a forest in Edo Japan in the middle of a battle. I HONESTLY DOUBT THIS IS IT Especially since he becomes a SAMURAI in this (Jin for benevolence, anyone) and has nothing to do with medical stuff, I assume. Besides, Yoko doesn't even LOOK like he could pull off a 34 year old man.
Again, original story so I doubt those two are going to be it. A friend and me suspect maybe medical means more of a veternarian type of deal? It'd be cute and Yoko loves animals.
EDIT: WHICH WAS ACTUALLY BROUGHT UP LATER IN THE THREAD! Someone rumors that Yoko will probably be a vetenarian working at a zoo in charge of elephants... they also said the drama would probably be called " Asahiyama Doubutsuen Monogatari ". Interesting.
I'm still reading the thread so I'll be sure to update this post with more info.
Again, sorry if you ALREADY KNOW. >:(
and for fangirling: YAY YOKO
- Yokoyama is the spitting image of a orangutan (laugh)
- You're wrong, dont you mean Akanishi?
But to be serious, I thought we fans were crazy -- Japanese fans are BATSHIT. I can't even repeat some of the FUCKED UP SHIT these fans have said in regards to Yoko. English K8 fandom angels to Japanese JE fans
Sorry for such a chaotic post, but for those who care about other JE boys:
Sun. 9 -
Fri. 10 - Ninomiya Kazunari & Ikuta Toma " Ryuusei no Kizuna " <-- People are really not talking about this one, though Toma was once replaced with Hiro Mizushima for a while before they took Hiro off anded added Toma again. I find it weird Toma is getting dramas, back to back.
EDIT: I read up about Ryuusei no Kizuna, its based off of a book of the same title. It takes place in Yokosuka, in the Kanagawa Prefecture. Three brothers witness the murder of their parents on a night during a meteor (Ryuusei) shower in the family's store. The boys are then sent to orphanages and grow up there, then they become swindlers and theives as they grow up.... and stuff...
People were talking about Tackey actually getting the rumored Jin role, but that turned out to be a big GTFO TACKEY-OTAKUS fight.
