Popular Idol Group, KAT-TUN’s Akanishi Jin will be playing the lead role for the first time in a music drama called “BANDAGE”. According to the Nippon TV executive producer, they will start filming aroud November 3rd and 4th within Tokyo. They are planning to release the movie around 2010.
The movie takes place in the 90’s when amateur bands were popular. A high school girl becomes the manager of a popular band, LANDS, and the story is told through her eyes. She meets the lead vocal, Natsu (Jin) and other members and develop friendship. The title have two meanings – BAND AGE (the age of the bands) and also BANDAGE (bandage..lol). It is about youth chasing their dreams and growing from their experiences.
(stuff about the director..)
The director commented that after reading the script, he felt that Akanishi would be good for the lead role. They have already started to prepare by having Jin try on the costumes, read the lines, discuss their looks for the character, etc.
The producer commented “I’m excited for how it will become. I think the main character’s and Akanishi’s way of life will be very similar and shown on the screen. This will be a music movie that no one has ever seen.

    I saw the movie. It’s a good movie, you just need to really listen and grasp what it’s all about. *spoiler* it goes pretty fast though, like in a month then 7 months… It was confusing for me really. But it’s just me.
