Matsumoto Jun (26) from Arashi will lead Fuji TV's Monday night drama titled 'Natsu no Koi wa Nijiiro ni Kagayaku' (Summer's Love Glitters Iridescent) starting in July. This is his first starring role in the Monday night slot and a first among his Arashi members as well. Takeuchi Yuko (30) plays his love interest.
Matsumoto plays a second-generation actor who is riding on the coattails of his illustrious actor father. As an actor himself though, he fails miserably and appears more often in variety shows than scoring acting roles. He also has an argumentative nature and even nitpicks on the way girls he dates hold their chopsticks. Skydiving with a friend one day as a distraction to his problems, he loses control of his parachute and lands on a large tree near the beach. As he is stuck hanging, a beautiful older lady with a cheerful disposition played by Takeuchi happens to pass by and their love story begins.
Matsumoto commented,"To be given a role in a Fuji TV Monday night drama, which I have been watching since I was young, is an honour. There's pressure but I will do my best."

What's wrong, grumpy? I like Takeuchi Yuko after seeing her in Pride. And yes! Thank you for posting this. Now I've confirmed that Jun will have another drama, something to watch out for.
