Innocent Love
Press Conference




Kitagawa Yuujin, "surprised" to be chosen for a Getsu 9 Drama

Lead actress Horikita Maki (19) and co-star Kitagawa Yuujin (31) of the folk duo Yuzu attended a press conference held in Tokyo on the 2nd of October for Fuji TV's drama Innocent Love (starting 20th October, Monday at 9pm). Kitagawa is taking up the new challenge of being in a drama. "I was surprised on being chosen, especially in a Getsu 9, but I was charmed by the enthusiasm the producer showed on the drama's theme of pure love," he said. "Since I'm still an amateur at it, I practiced my lines at home. But my mom went "What?" and I got quite worried," he said, laughing.

The picture's bad but the other papers haven't published their reports yet so there should be better ones soon. This one's a promotional poster [via 2ch], from a train station probably.




北川悠仁、月9大抜てきに「ビックリ」 
女優・堀北真希(19)の主演で、フォークデュオ「ゆず」の北川悠仁(31)が相手役となるフジテレビ・関西系の連続ドラマ「イノセント・ラブ」(20日スタート。月曜、後9・00)の制作発表が2日、都内で行われた。連ドラ初挑戦の北川は「月9(ゲツク)ということであまりの大抜てきにビックリしましたが、プロデューサーの熱意とドラマの表現するテーマ(純愛)にひかれました」と出演に至った心境を吐露。「素人なので家でセリフの練習をしていると、母が『なに?』とか言って困ってます」と笑わせていた。
