Nichkhun in Ouran High School Host Club live action (MUST WATCH!!!)
Nichkhun, a member of the K-pop group 2PM, will soon be making his first appearance in a Japanese movie. He has been added to the cast of the “Ouran High School Host Club” movie, which is scheduled for nationwide release on March 17, 2012.
As reported previously, the TBS drama “Oura High School Host Club” which was aired in this summer will get movie adaptation starring Kawaguchi Haruna and Yamamoto Yusuke, and today on October 16th, it was announced that AKB48 member, Shinoda Mariko will make an appearance in the movie as a spoiled daughter of a rich family.
“Ouran High School Host Club”, which is based off the original manga of the same title, is a romantic comedy centered around the popular host club of the prestigious ‘Ouran High School’, where the female student Haruhi (Kawaguchi) has to disguise herself as a male host, and the movie will show “Haruhi” and the host club’s president, Tamaki (Yamamoto) get into a closer relationship. Shinoda’s role will be an international student from Singapore, Michelle, and she will cut in between Haruhi and Tamaki for some kind of plot.
Though Shinoda’s trademark is her short hair, she will appear in long hair by wearing hair extension in the movie. She said bashfully about the long hair, “I look somehow mature. It’s been three years since I last had a long hair, so it feels uncomfortable.” Also Shinoda’s role “Michelle” is set as half Singaporean, half Japanese, so there are scenes that Shinoda speaks English. ”It’s hard. I memorized the lines by reciting them like a charm, but I’m really enjoying the filming. I always burst out laughing with the co-stars.” Shinoda said with a smile.
Upcoming movie “Ouran High School Host Club” is scheduled to be released on March 17th 2012.
It’s been announced that a spin-off drama of “Ouran High School Host Club” will begin distribution as a “LISMO drama” (a mobile drama provied by au). The spin-off is called “Ouran High School Host Club~Haruhi no Happy Birthday Daisakusen~“, and will star Kawaguchi Haruna.
“Ouran High School Host Club” was previously aired as a drama series on TBS from July to September, and it’s become so popular that it will also get a movie adaptation with the same cast members (scheduled to be released on March 17th).
This LISMO drama will tell an original story, whose plot was worked on by the author of the manga, Hatori Bisco. Fans will get to follow a day in the life of the host club members before their impending school festival. Kawaguchi, who plays the protagonist ‘Fujioka Haruhi’, commented, “You will see an explosion of this well-known bright and silly character! It was fun playing the role, and all the host club members enjoyed the filming.” Each episode will be about five minutes long, and there will be four episodes in total.
“Ouran High School Host Club~Haruhi no Happy Birthday Daisakusen~” will begin broadcasting on January 6th, 2012.
