[Disscusion] ROOM OF KING With Hiro Mizushima & Anne Suz

Post by TsubasaDragon » Sep 1st, '08, 07:34

Hiro Mizushima, Anne Suzuki star in roommate comedy
Mon, September 1, 2008 (2:39am EDT)


Hiro Mizushima and Anne Suzuki will co-star in a Fuji TV drama series titled "ROOM OF KING," airing this fall. The show is an unusual comedy scripted by director/screenwriter Ellie Omiya.

The story revolves around a group of housemates sharing a high-class apartment in Tokyo's Aoyama district. Mizushima plays a part-timer while Suzuki plays an OL. They begin living with a venereologist (Haruka Igawa) and a popular stylist (Atsuro Watabe), but after a series of events, they find themselves all competing in a game to win ownership of the apartment.

Fuji TV will broadcast "ROOM OF KING" on Saturday nights at 11:10pm, starting on October 4.

Hiro's in a new drama! :wub:

Sounds like a great series to follow too, and I've always liked Anne Suzuki - but Hiro is the one who has me excited for this. Just, he isn't going to film it with that awful blond hair I saw him with recently, is he? :|

Thanks for posting this though. Sooooo looking forward to it. :cheers:

don't worry about that! I just watched a clip from Osamu brunch where he said he really hates his blonde hair and he will dye it back to black [or another color?] as soon as the filming for the movie Drop ends!;))
so I guess by now he has black hair again!LOL

Yeah, checked her DramaWiki profile earlier and it's been ages since I've seen her. Her and Hiro will be great together. Seems like a great drama to look forward to.

Ditto, ironically I was thinking about where she had ran off too and then this happened XD

They will be, I see great chemistry here. :)

Uwaa, finally! A drama with Suzuki Anne. I was wondering if she was ever going to go back to dramas. And a drama with Mizushima Hiro too! Cool.

I'm looking forward to this. I adore Suzuki Anne, and was sad that she's mostly stuck to plays and films for the last three years or so. I'm glad to see her back in a drama, and with Mizushima Hiro no less. The plot sounds very unusual, as well. Four roomates trying to get one apartment for themselves? It's listed as a comedy, but I have to wonder if there will be any romance between Hiro and Anne?

I'm downloading Room of King right now so it'll be on d-a in about another 30 minutes.

I think it's her bangs maybe? Idk. She looks alright to me. Is she full Japanese? She looks like she might have something else.

I actually liked the ending theme thingy, where they were looking in the rooms. I guess it might be Hiro x Anne by the looks of that ending sequence.

And my, this episode was really random.
I mean, a robbery? Where'd that come from? And that guy singing, then all the people came in to sing along. Ahaha. I guess I'll keep watching, but hopefully it gets more... solid plot wise. :o

My Japanese is far from brilliant, but even I could tell how random and kinda rushed the whole thing was. XD
I think the random singing guy thought the robber was his student - and vice versa? Then turned out they both thought wrong because the robber was wearing a mask? Or... something, I have no idea.
Agreed that Anne Suzuki looks rather strange, but I've not seen anything of her less than three years old until now, so maybe it's just how she is now, I guess. She's still cute. And her and Hiro together were adorable.

It's still a pretty cute drama, so I'll watch it again when SBKSubs releases.

Oh yeah! The last time I've seen Suzuki Anne in a drama was in Ganbatte Ikimasshoi. Woww.

You know what's random? I think she speaks English fluently maybe, because her hobbies on DramaWiki include daily english converstions, so I guess both her and Hiro have something in common. XD

She was in a movie called Snow Falling on Cedars, which is American, when she was twelve. I think she might have spoken English in it.... But yeah, the last drama she was in was Ganbatte Ikemasshoi. o/

I didn't know Hiro could speak English - seriously?

Yes, Hiro can speak English fluently. He lived in Sweden from age 6-12 and went to an international school. If you search on youtube or google you can probably find some clips.

Hiro's English is really good and he has no accent. Too bad he doesn't speak much in dramas. But then again it's not like there's any need for him to do so. ^^

I think that random robbery took place to introduce a character perhaps? The singing guy that is. What a weird way ..

I don't think that was the only reason for it.
The realtors really do seem to be picking people who have a chance for fame and money. So that robbery also got Asako into some media spotlight, and the realtors were talking about her being on her way now.

I was completely going wtf and laughing my butt off during that scene with the song. And then he's just like... "Oh, I thought you were my cousin... he wore a mask like that too..." Very random humor. LOL

I couldn't help but feel that they cut down episode 1 a bit to fit in the time slot and that the original cut is longer, that or the transitions really are supposed to be that fast.

The Fuji Saturday drama slot has always been 30 minute dramas... Its just the pacing of Room of King is really fast and somewhat haphazard.

Latest episode garnered a 5.0% in ratings. That's incredibly low, the lowest I've seen. I wonder why? Maybe because of the pacing?

ouch >< that is rough~ could explain why it was so hard to find raw copies of it last week. if it's any consolation, episode 5 seems to be much more easily available on the networks. i think the story is getting pretty good, honestly =) not sure how they're going to end it in 6 episodes though :cry:

Well, according to the japanese wikipedia (http://ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/Room_Of_King) it should end airing on the 22nd of November, which means we still have like 3 more episodes to go.

Personally, I love this drama. It's hilarious xD

Sure, the pacing is crazy, but the characters are awesome. Plus, it's such a pleasure to see Anne Suzuki acting in a drama after so many years.

This drama is totally whacked and crazy but I'm too curious to know what the whole King deal is and who will win to stop watching. I'm glad it's more than 6 episodes now. I guess perhaps nobody knew for sure how many episodes RoK would be so they just allocated 6 episode slots in the wiki page first.
Now watching: Too many to count. XD

This drama is practically weird...
Weird plot, weird original idea, weird pace, weird characters.. (come on, three Ijuins??)
I keep watching it because of Hiro ^^
But it's true, I also curious what's the deal with all this "King" project o_0

But sometimes, too much craziness makes thing unclear. I'm still didnt get it eventhough i'm in ep 3. Those who watched after this episodes, is it getting any better? Cuz i am totally depending on the subtitle for this.

sorry for the delay on the subs sakura_sake~
i haven't been able to get in touch with the QC for a while. last i heard ModesTea has been really busy with school, so not much time to check over the episode. the 4 translation is complete though, so i might just check it over and post it up later if i don't notice any real errors.
