The new action drama will be called “Lucky Seven“, and will star Arashi’s Matsumoto Jun, Eita, and Oizumi Yo as the members of a detective agency.
I have to admit when I heard this news I was super excited. I am beyond hopelessly in love with MatsuJun, but this drama even has Eita which makes me doubly excited. I haven’t seen them together in anything and since they are both great actors I hope the drama will showcase their abilities. I did also enjoy the last three dramas I watched with Oizumi Yo as the lead actor.
The story focuses on the seven members, three men and four women, that operate a small detective agency in Kitashinagawa, Tokyo. Teamwork is definitely going to be a strong theme of the drama, but it will be the original and thrilling cases that are going to keep the viewers at the edge of their seats.
For Matsumoto, it has been a year and a half since his last Monday starring role in the drama, “Natsu no Koi wa Nijiiro ni Kagayaku“. He stated with confidence, “I think it’s going to become an intense drama, featuring seven completely different individuals. It will keep you excited and also make you laugh. I’m already all excited to have some great time with this team.”
Matsumoto is going to portray the newest addition to the team, a real novice detective, who is completely absorbed in everything the job has to offer. Meanwhile, Eita is going to slip into the role of a really cool and calm guy, who regularly ends up in a confrontation with the new member due to their opposite personalities. Oizumi, as the senior of the two, will act as the self-proclaimed “middle man” and try to get them back on the same page whenever it’s necessary. Aside from that, he actually turns out to be quite a puzzling guy himself.
Eita commented, “It looks like there are going to be a lot of action scenes together with Matsumoto. I want to sync with him to the best of my abilities.” It’s said that it’s going to be the most thrilling drama Fuji TV has ever aired in their Monday time slot. Fuji TV was able to have “GANTZ” director Sato Shinsuke on board for the production. Aside from other activities, he will be in charge of all the action scenes.
Ok. One more because I can’t help myself.
I know I haven’t been able to recap dramas because other other things but I promise, I will be recapping this drama. Stay tuned.
