I’m glad that the producers decided to add someone from V6 in this 24 Hr TV~38~Love saves the Earth~ TV special, after all, this year’s host is supposed to be a V6 x HSJ collab and not just HSJ alone.
As I reported earlier, Hey!Say!JUMP‘s Yamada Ryosuke will take on the leading role for this year’s 24 Hr TV tearjerker “Okasan, Ore wa daijoubu“. It tells the story of Sasaki Ryohei, a high school student and vice captain of a soccer club, who was diagnosed with brain tumor. V6‘s Inohara Yoshihiko will play the role of Ryohei’s soccer club adviser. Inohara promised to support his kouhai and says that he just wants to play and relax.
In a related news, V6 and Hey!Say!JUMP attended the production announcement for this year’s 24 Hr TV~38~Love saves the Earth~ at Tokyo’s Shiodome. Using the theme, “to connect~ a smile beyond time~”, both groups appeared wearing this year’s chari-tee-shirts that is like those emoticons on your phone. Joining them as the charity personality is actress Matsushita Nao while DAIGO will serve as the charity marathon runner. Let’s all see if DAIGO’s famous and pretty girlfriend will be at the sidelines.
NTV‘s 24 Hr TV~38~Love saves the Earth~ will air on Aug 22nd-23rd.
