20 Handsome 'Ikemen' to Star on Greenwood Drama
posted on by Egan Loo
15-year-old actor Yuuki Izawa led a cast of 20 ikemen (handsome males) at a June 25 event to promote the July live-action drama adaptation of Yukie Nasu's Here is Greenwood manga. Izawa plays Kazuya Hasukawa, the boy who moves into a dorm to escape a love triangle with his brother Kazuhiro (Kengo Ookuchi) and his brother's new wife Sumire (Gurren Lagann's Yukari Fukui) — only to discover that the dorm houses an even more oddball cast of characters. Hiroki Suzuki plays Kazuya's beguiling roommate Shun Kisaragi, and Riki Miura and Yūichi Satō play the Mitsuru Ikeda and Shinobu Tezuka, the two dormitory heads. Mitsuo Iwata, the voice actor who played Mitsuru in the 1991-1993 anime version, will narrate the drama. Access, a two-man musical unit, will perform the "Dreamrunner" opening theme. The Mainichi Shimbun paper's Mantan Web posted photos of the cast from the event.
