Innocent Love
Kitagawa Yuujin male lead

Sponichi entertainment news supplement

Shucks so the YK as the male lead rumours were true. He was referred to YK-kun so I was still hoping it was some other guy. This one's more like a -san isn't he ?! He doesn't look half-bad here actually. But can't imagine him with Maki when I see him here

The rest of the cast includes Kashii Yu, Fukushi Seiji, Narimiya Hiroki and Uchida Yuki.

Excerpts from Sanspo 26th August 2008

Yuzu's Kitagawa, Male lead role out of the blue in drama debut

The theme is of modern-day solitude. The heroine, estranged from society, Kanon (Horikita Maki) finds love and this is painted as a modern version of the Cinderella story. The companion that she loves wholeheartedly will be played by Yuzu's leader, Kitagawa.

Acting after all this while, furthermore a first drama appearance which corresponds to about the same level as a main lead, Kitagawa said,"I was very surprised but as a whole new challenge for myself, I will do the very best I can."

He plays a cheerful and innocent pianist who carries a profound sadness inside him, a difficult role.

Yuzu celebrated their 10th year anniversary last year.

During his live performances, he grabs the microphone and moves freely around the stage with his invigorating and cheerful smiling face. Those who know him during his acting years will find it nostalgic and those who don't will find him projecting something fresh. It will no doubt be a big topic of discussion.

Update : According to this Sponichi article, he plays a pianist who leads a children's choir in church.
