Japan's Nippon Television Network will begin broadcasting Sprout on July 7, a live-action drama adaptation of Atsuko Nanba's shōjo manga of the same name. The program will star Yuri Chinen from the Hey! Say! JUMP boy band as Souhei, a boy in high school who begins living in the same house as the story's female lead Miku, who is played by Aoi Morikawa, when her father turns their home into a boarding house.
The teen romantic drama soon turns into a multi-sided web of relationships, with Johnny's Jr. members including Lewis Jesse, Yuuta Jinguuji, and Kentaro Yasui also appearing in the program. Previews for the program also reveal that it will feature many of its young male actors' first kiss scenes.
