Kanata Hosoda will appear as the second cast of the University of Tokyo special course student role in the TV drama “Dragon Zakura” based on Norifusa Mita. Kenta Hara, played by Hosoda, is a kind-hearted student who loves insects. He has a certain problem and is isolated from the surroundings. Hosoda said, “I hope you will see this drama and, through the role of Kenta, have a positive feeling that no matter how high the wall may be, let’s do our best to make our dreams come true!” “I will talk to the director, gain weight (weight) to get closer to Kenta’s image, and cut my hair short before shooting. It’s my first time to make a role by changing the appearance, and I feel like I’m tightening. I will do my best to play each one carefully, “he said with enthusiasm. “Dragon Zakura” will be on air from April on TBS’s Sunday Theater frame. Based on “Dragon Zakura 2” serialized in Morning (Kodansha), the drama original is planned to be developed. Comment by Kanata Hosoda (role of Kenta Hara) This is Kanata Hosoda, the role of Kenta Hara.
One of my goals was to appear in the Sunday Theater, so I was very happy when I heard that he was selected as Kenta after auditioning.
Kenta Hara, who I play, is a boy who has a certain problem. Like myself, in my daily life, I feel inferior to others, and I think there are some barriers that make it hard to live. But that doesn’t mean I want to give up on my dreams and what I want to do.
Watch this drama, and through the role of Kenta, let’s do our best to make our dreams come true, no matter how high the wall is! I would be happy if you could have a positive feeling.
I will talk to the director, gain weight (weight) to get closer to Kenta’s image, and cut my hair short before shooting. It’s my first time to make a role by changing the appearance, and I feel like I’m tightened.
I will do my best to play each one carefully. Please have a look! Sunday Theater “Dragon Zakura” TBS from April 2021 every Sunday from 21:00 to 21:54
