Instead of flirting with the ladies in the movie, Aiba prefers Toma. 😄
Last Oct 26th, Aiba Masaki and his co-starts Ikuta Toma, Eikura Nana, and Han Hyo-joo attended the world premier for “MIRACLE: Devil Claus’ Love and Magic”. The said movie is part of the 27th Tokyo International Festival that happened in Roppongi Hills, Tokyo.
Written by Nakamura Ko and soundtrack by Yamashita Tatsuro with “Christmas Eve“, “MIRACLE” tells the story of unrequited love among four people that includes a worthless bookstore member, Yamamoto Hikaru (Aiba Masaki), who aspires to be a cartoonist and weaves a miracle at Christmas Eve with the help of “Devil Claus”.
“Devil Claus” is a character that can only be seen by Hikaru and when ask about his “dark side”, Aiba commented that he has a dark side though he won’t show it to anyone. Ikuta then joked that he has seen that part of Aiba back in the old days and it was really scary, making the hall erupt with laughter.
Since the movie is about love, the stars were asked about their heart-throbbing moment and Aiba mentioned the time when Ikuta lend him his coat during filming because it was cold and he felt his heart skipped a beat. Although Aiba and Ikuta belong to the same agency, this is the first time since “Stand by me” (1997) that they have worked together again.
“MIRACLE: Devil Claus’ Love and Magic” will have its regular showing in Japan on Nov 22nd and will also be screened in Korea, Hong Kong, and Taiwan.
