The “Eight Ranger 2” stage greeting gets eclipsed by this wrong reading of name.
Last July 26th, Kanjani8 attended the stage greeting for their movie, “Eight Ranger 2” at TOHO cinema in Roppongi Hills.
During stage introductions, Yokoyama Yu‘s name is read wrong as “Aoyama Hiroshi”. It was the first time such mistake occured and although Yokoyama appeared calm, but he just smiled wryly to hide being upset.
In the movie, “Eight Ranger” is fully loaded with actions scenes where the seven members acts as heroes. Shibutani Subaru commented that due to lots of actions scenes, he mostly used a stunt man. Shibutani’s comment made Okura Tadayoshi laugh, who revealed that he used a stunt man 100% of the time since he only did a “chop” for his scenes.
