I’ve posted awhile back that Jun Matsumoto will be having a new drama. I almost forgot about it until sittie reminded me! Apparently this show has started airing in Japan on TBS at 10 PM on Fridays (I think you can get TBS on TVants… )
There is already videos for the episode 1 on konoban.com however its still the raw vid. I’m still waiting for the subbed videos. This is the synopsis of the drama:
Hayakawa Bito (Jun Matsumoto) has a Filipino father and a Japanese mother, but he was born and raised in Japan and has never visited the Philippines. The ever-smiling Bito works at Machimura Foods during the day, and at night, he works a part-time job trying to make his dreams come true. One day during an incident at a bookstore, he meets a girl named Mishima Hana (Aragaki Yui), who lost her ability to speak due to an accident. But even though she can’t speak, Bito is drawn to her beautiful smile. However, Bito becomes wrongly suspected by the police for a crime, and after meeting the lawyer Kazuma, the issue begins to grow… Together, Bito, Hana, and Kazuma will go through challenging times and have to overcome many obstacles.
