It’s amazing how Goro is open to talk about this, is he dropping hints?
Aside from Kokubun’s marriage announcement via fan mail, the agency seem to be sending lots of mails lately. Well, just one particular mail.
Multiple celebrity spotting happened before and during the last day of Ninagawa Yukio‘s “Aoi Shushi wa Taiyo no Naka ni Aru” that stars KAT-TUN‘s Kamenashi Kazuya. The said stage play ran from Aug 10th to 30th at Bunkamura Orchard Hall in Tokyo. Even though the Tokyo run have ended, the cast will also be having performances in Osaka.

Last Aug 15th, Nakayama Yuma attended the public dress rehearsal of the stage play, “The Picture of Dorian Gray“. The said play is Nakayama’s first starring role.
Forget about rivalry between Nakayuma Yuma in this year’s double lead “DREAM BOYS“, Kis-My-Ft2‘s Tamamori Yuta says that his rival is his very self.
Everyone seems to be losing weight, from A.B.C.-Z’s Hashimoto Ryosuke who now has sunken cheeks to KAT-TUN‘s Kamenashi Kazuya who is set to lost 5cm off his waist for his stage play. Geez, I feel like an obese.
Well, this looks interesting since I’ve never seen Ueda play as a man in a relationship, and it’s more interesting that ex-AKB48 center Maeda Atsuko will be his lover.
It was announced that KAT-TUN‘s Ueda Tatsuya will star in the stage play, “Aoi Hitomi“, to be staged this November. The said play will be written and directed by Iwamatsu Ryo that would depict the suffering of veterans in their family and community after the war. Joining Ueda is Kabuki actor Nakamura Shido II, who will play as a returning soldier, and older brother to Michiru (Maeda) while Ueda will play as Michiru’s lover.
Nakamura is expecting some “chemical reaction” since it’s the first time that he’ll be working with a popular male idol and former ace of a national girl idol group. It’s also the first time for Ueda and Maeda to work together.
“Aoi Hitomi” will run from Nov 1st to 26th at Bunkamura Theater Cocoon.
Coming this Aug 30th at Bunkamura Orchard Hall in Shibuya, Tokyo, KAT-TUN‘s Kamenashi Kazuya will star in Ninagawa Yukio‘s stage production “Aoi Shushi wa Taiyo no Naka ni Aru”. The said stage play is based from a play written by the late Terayama Shuji and it’s also part of Ninagawa’s anniversary as the director-playwright turns 80 years old.
Why have one when you can have two?
Kis-My-Ft2‘s Tamamori Yuta have been taking the lead in the stage play, “DREAM BOYS“, which he succeeded from his senpais, KAT-TUN‘s Kamenashi Kazuya and Tackey & Tsubasa’s Takizawa Hideaki. For the past two years, Tamamori is also sharing the stage with his fellow Kisumai members, Senga Kento and Miyata Toshiya. For this year DREAM BOYS will have two version, one stars Tamamori while the other stars Nakayama Yuma.
Tamamori and Nakayama have starred together in the drama, “Pin to Kona“, so this is like a reunion. However, they won’t be sharing the stage together since they will be performing separately. Tamamori will still co-star with Senga and Miyata while Nakayama will be with Sexy Zone‘s Kikuchi Fuma and Marius Yo.
There have been circulating rumors why there will be two versions of DREAM BOYS this year, one is that Kis-My-Ft2 will be extremely busy this September since they’ll be having a tour. The second one is that this move is like Tamamori passing on the torch to Nakayama.
Well, Nakayama have been active in stage plays particularly with PLAYZONE so I guess that DREAM BOYS will be easy for him. As for “passing on the torch”, I guess this will be a trial run for Nakayama seeing how the performance dates for Yuma’s version is shorter compared to Tamamori.
DREAM BOYS Tamamori version will run starting Sept 3-10, 15-16,and 22-30. While DREAM BOYS Nakayama version will run starting Sept 12-14 and 18-20.
