For Dream!

The popularity of NEWS member Shigeaki Kato continues a-pace with the announcement of his new “entertainment show” this Summer. Obviously pushing his reputation as the “intelligent” member of the group (not that there’s much competition), the show will, it seems, be focused on literary and cultural themes.

Titled “Konnan Yatte Mimashita”, it will take place at The Globe Tokyo from July 14 to 30 and then Umeda Arts Theater Osaka from August 2 to 8. Shige-kun is known for his cat-based j-web entries, which obviously qualifies him to teach us something about the arts.

Hmmm….we’ll see 😉

Everyone’s favourite perma-pout is back.

Yamashita Tomohisa is set to lead the cast of a new Fuji TV production entitled “Code Blue:Doctor Heli Kinkyu Kyumei“.  The premise of the drama is “special-op” doctors who can reach emergencies quickly by helicopter, a directive that was recently started in Japan.

As well as Yamapi, ther are some other stand out names in the cast: Aragaki Yui, Toda Erika (Hana Yori Dango 2, Death Note 1 &2), Asari Yosuke (Fuurin Kazan) and Terajima Susumu (Moon Child).

I can’t say I’m chomping at the bit for this one, but we’ll wait and see…
