The completion announcement for the movie “Yokai Ningen Bem” was held yesterday at Tokyo International Forum in Marunouchi. Attending the event is KAT-TUN‘s Kamenashi Kazuya with the rest of the cast.
“Yokai Ningen Bem” is a film adaptation of NTV’s hit drama last year that garnered an averaged of 15.6% audience share. Kamenashi greeted the audience with confidence, “By the drama’s cinematization, I think that depth of the work has increased,” Kamenashi commented. Playing the role of a humanoid monster, Kamenashi encouraged the audience “to watch the movie without blinking as much as possible”. Completing the “humanoid monster” trio is child star Suzuki Fuku and actress Anne who revealed that they spend their free time by giving Fuku a drill on arithmetic and Kanji.
When the cast were asked what they want to transform into, Fuku said that he wanted to become a adult, “so I can shoot until late at night”. On the other hand, fellow co-star Kazuki Kitamura would rather become a child, “so I can go home by 8:00PM,” he said that earned laughter from the audience.
Joining the rest of the cast is Arisa Mizuki, whose special make-up effects would take 3 hours to transform into her Sayuri Ueno role, “I think that the special make-up is better than my real face,” she joked.
Directed by Shunsuke Kariyama, “Yokai Ningen Bem” will hit the theaters on Dec 15th.
