Original news (copied from Ueno Juri thread):

NEW DORAMA FOR JURI-CHAN AND EITA!!!! :cheers:

Sunao ni Narenakute 素直になれなくて ("I Can't Be Frank")

Eita and Ueno Juri will be working together for the 8th time in the FujiTV spring 2010 drama, "Sunao ni Narenakute" (I can't be frank) which begins its run in the Thursday 10pm slot from April. The drama will be produced by the same crew which produced "Last Friends", the last drama which Eita and Ueno worked together. The script is written by Kitagawa Eriko whose last work was "Sora kara furu ichioku no Hoshi" which starred Kimura Takuya and Fukatsu Eri.

The two of them are 2 of 5 main characters who come to know one another through the short message communication application Twitter and the drama depicts the process how they become true friends. Eita plays Nakaji who aspired to be a war photographer but starts to have second thoughts after seeing his father return injured from the war zone. On the other hand, Ueno plays a part-time teacher Haru at a private senior high school who feels frustrated at being unable to handle the demands of her job. Haru then meets Nakaji through Twitter where he subsequently falls for her but is unable to be frank about his feelings.

Tamayama Tetsuji and Seki Megumi also form part of the cast as Linda and Peach while the person to play the final character in the group has yet to be decided. Linda is the leader of the group and works in the publishing industry. However, despite his flashy appearance, Linda is troubled because he is suffering from erectile dysfunction (ED) at a young age. As for the character Peach, she is Haru's buddy who has an affair with her married superior.

I can't wait to watch this too! The cast and the general feel (from the website) reminds me a lot of Last Friends. I was also surprised Jaejoong will be in this drama too. The summary doesn't mention his character though. :O

here is the plot with more details:
"Sunao ni Narenakute" revolves around 5 young people who meet in Shibuya, Tokyo through popular microblogging site Twitter.

Nakaji (Eita) works as a photographer and follows in the foot steps of his father who also worked as a photographer.

Haru (Juri Ueno) is a temporary teacher at a private high school. Haru is insecure because of her temporary status. Haru is also in a one-sided love with Nakaji.

Peach (Megumi Seki) keeps having an affair with her boss.

Rinta (Tetsuji Tamayama) works in the glamorous publishing field. He is concerned with his impotence.

A doctor (Yeong Woong Jae Jung) is stressed over his bad business dealings.

It's been so long since I've been hyped up for a Jdrama and this is most definitely thanks to it being Jaejoong's drama debut! The rest of the cast is pretty much a bonus for me. Juri and Eita together again, both being the superb actor and actress they are themselves, are a must see. I haven't seen Seki Megumi since LIFE where she was both brilliant and my favorite character in that series. Tamayama Tetsuji; I only know from two other series but I missed him as the lovable older brother from Brother Beat.

An article I came across:
"Sunao ni Narenakute casts, hang out together"

The new fuji tv drama that’s starting in april “Sunao ni narenakute” had an interview on the 14th where Eita, Ueno Juri, Jaejoong (Tohoshinki), Seki Megumi, and Tamayama Tetsuji were all there.

The story is about 5 peoples love and friendship which they meet through twitter. Eita plays character Nakaji who is a cameraman, Ueno Juri plays Haru a part time teacher, Jaejoong plays Doctor a salesman, Seki Megumi plays Peach a children clothes sales clerk, and Tamayama Tetsuji plays Linda/Rinda an editor.

Before filming the 5 went to go drink. Tamayama said “this time many are around the same age so I got excited and drank too much, and Jaejoong made me drunk *laughs*. I don’t have memory of the last half part. Jaejoong and Eita and everyone is really strong.”

Jaejoong said “Tamayama-san is like my neighbor’s older brother *laughs*. And Eita-san is really strong in alcohol. If I have a chance I want to see who is stronger *laughs*” and Eita who go asked to challenge said “no thank you *laughs* (to the challenge).” And rejected the challenge but said “Jaejoong is a really honest person. He can say what is good or bad and it feels nice to be around him”. It seemed that he has a good impression of him.

Ueno Juri talked about seki megumi who plays her best friend. ” We have been in the same movie before called ‘ warau daitenshi’ and she’s a cool/calm person but she’s actually a very funny person and we get to film longer this time so im excited”. Seki said “I like how juri thinks about other people and her power towards acting, she’s very reliable.” It seemed that they both like each other.

Even before the filming started they are right on track. It is exciting to see how the drama will be.

“Sunao ni narenakute” Starting in April on thursdays from 10:00-10:54 on Fuji television.

100318 Taking the Photos for "Sunaoni Narenakute" Posters

Image

Finally, the team "Sunaoni Narenakute" started. This time, we will send you the report of filming the poster. Eita-san, Ueno Juri-san, Jaejoong-san, Seki Megumi-san, and Tetsuji Tamayama-san participated.

The first work of the 5 actors (who are the main casts for this drama) was this poster filming. All the actors excluding Jaejoong-san had experiences of joint appearances, and for this drama, they have already started the rehearsals and have gone to a get-together dinner, so there was already a good atmosphere. You can see the lovely moods by just looking at the photos.

The poster was taken on the roof of Fuji TV bay area studio. The actors were playing around and pushing each other, bubbling over saying "Stop, stop!" According to the request from the staff "Everyone, please smile", all the actors started to laugh out all at one, and was laughing at themselves… "We are not shy! It’s so fun!" shouted Eita-san, and then, all the surrounding staff were laughing out loud, too.

Jaejoong-san, who was the center of attention joked, "I will melt down if I have so much sunshine on myself…" and set everyone to laugh. He seemed to be very nervous during the rehearsal (he is saying "I am really nervous now, too"), but he definitely is the mood maker of this team!

Our next report will be the start of the filming! Please look forward to them!!

I'm a bit worried for him too. I don't know how his acting is as the only other thing he's done is Heaven's Postman as far as I know and I haven't watched it yet. Crossing my fingers for him. ^_^

I just hope they didn't pick this guy just for the fangirls, like they did with Ryo in Last Friends... That drama was a train wreck, aside from Juri-chan and Eita's fine performances. :sweat:

love the blue theme because i love blue :wub:
and Eita&Juri make such a gorgeous couple :wub: :wub: :wub:
im forever their shipper lol :salut:

i really hope the drama won't disappoint like LF :whistling:
though the scripwriter is one of my fav so i hope she still able to write a great script like her older drama :salut:

i like JaeJoong as a singer :wub:
though never watch his acting before but i won't judge him just yet, still need to watch the drama before i can say he is bad or not, the guy need to be given a chance :P
though obviously he will definitely be overshadowed by Juri, Eita and Tamayama everytime they have a scene together :whistling:

i think his Japanese is pretty good by learning themselves over the years they are in Japan, and i heard he is taking Japanese lesson more seriously now for the drama, he would definitely become better now :D

It's easier for Korean to learn Japanese language than otherwise. I haven't heard him speaking though. But I guess it's a trend in new dramas to pick up "cute" guy, you know eye-candy because of fangirls. Their acting skills are waaay below of those of my night table though. Like Kim Hyun Joong in Korea. Who came up with the idea this guy can act?

But I'm looking for this for Tameyama's sake. And Eita's^^.

well every jdrama need an eye-candy^^;
though i'm really really glad that this drama don't have a JE boys :P
i do like JE but they always tend to take the spotlight and overshadow other better actors even when they just in supporting roles ^^;
like in LF when Ryo character is not suppose to be that big, and i don't want to blame Ryo but because of his JE status and it seem like they re-write the script for him and ruin the whole storyline, even Eita&Juri can't save the whole drama though is still watch the drama for them both ^^;


luckily the other cast is all powerful experience actor so maybe we might not even notice one bad acting :P

well i do follow Tohoshinki and all of them have good Japanese skills already though JaeJoong is not really the best among them but he still good enough^^
so i don't think we need to worry of his speaking beside he not really acting as Japanese guy :P

OK, as far as I could see kanji:

OK, I changed the pic, since I can't see the kanji, and I don't want to make a further buzz over it :mrgreen:

I can't see kanji clearly, but I guess it's the one for "yearning", so...

Not jealousy, but believability.

It'd be like Nishikido Ryo portraying a human being. :P

This drama has a lot of potential! I like the scriptwriter though most of my friends can't stand her scripts. Of course the cast is a big win (not sure about Jae but we haven't seen him act in anything serious). Eita & Juri is my biggest drama OTP, I never get tired of seeing them together. And I spy Channaka playing Juri's younger brother! ^_^ Niiiiiiiiiiiiice!

Anyone knows if the characters are going to get fictional twitter accounts? Cause if that happens I'll get a twitter account ASAP! XD

Article from Yomiuri Daily (possible spoilers ahead):


Juri Ueno and Eita, the stars of Fuji's 2008 hit Last Friends, team up again for another "seishun" drama featuring today's young people, their issues and concerns. Sunao ni Narenakute (starting in mid-April, Thursdays, 10 p.m., Fuji) grapples with the twenty-something angst of trying to follow one's dreams and find one's place in the world while wondering if the best days of one's youth haven't already slipped by.

Eita plays Nakajima (username "Nakaji"), a struggling young photographer whose father keeps pestering him for money. Ueno's character (username "Haru") is a part-time high school teacher with a younger brother who she suspects takes drugs. Haru has self-confidence issues and has never had a boyfriend. Haru's best friend (Megumi Seki), username "pi-chi," is having an affair with her boss and has a history of wrist-cutting. Tetsuji Tamayama's character (username "Linda") has a good job with a publishing company but also has his own issues, including being sexually harassed by his female boss. Tohoshinki member Jae Joong (username Doctor) makes his Japanese drama debut as the fifth member of the group. A medical equipment sales agent pressured to perform, he allows his Twitter pals to assume he's a real doctor. The group interact online, but there are plenty of real-life overlaps. Doctor's sister is one of Haru's students and Haru's mother apparently knows Nakaji's father.

That's hard to believe.

They've really gotta make Juri-chan look like a Plain Jane to pull that off... :wub:

Could it be that Eita also has an unrequited love for Ueno Juri too?

"Kurikaesu" means going back repeatedly. Repeat.
I couldn't find better word since I have no idea for now what's their relation is.

Really, I have no idea what to do with this. Maybe it's some kind of "on-off" relationship. Or he dumped her and then came back, ah, hell, I have to wait.

@Ethlenn

すみませんが、「くりかえす」じゃなくて 「くりまわす」でしょう?
「くりかえす」の書き方が「繰り返す」と思います。

繰り回すの意味:to roll over (i.e. debt)

So maybe Eita takes on Juri-chan's debt or vise versa?

Seem like they gonna have a very complicate love. lol

BTW there's gonna be a "love scene" between Jejung and Ueno Juri?! :blink

This is his first time in a Japanese drama. “I’m nervous about how my acting will come out like when I act in Japanese”. While saying that, at the poster photo shoot he was making jokes and making everyone laugh. “It’s fun when I see people laugh at the jokes I say".

The relationship with Ueno Juri who plays Haru is one of the good points. “For the love scene, even though its a rehearsal Jejung gets all red” she said. Its seems like there will be a lot of attention on how Jejung’s love goes.

あっ、見落とした、ごめん、ごめん^^あなたが書いたとおりだよ^^
一つ目の漢字を見てから、次のはあたりまえだと思った

Maybe that’s the case.But I still have doubts.
