Yamapi and Ishihara Satomi to act as lovers in manga adaptation”5-ji kara 9-ji Made”

4 Sep

Actress Ishihara Satomi(28) and Yamashita Tomohisa(30) will be starring in October’s Fuji TV drama “5→9 ~The overly handsome monk who fell in love with me~”.

Ishihara will play an English teacher who welcomes the most popular period of her life after meeting a handsome monk(Yamapi). Their first meeting results in Ishihara accidentally pouring incense ashes over Yamapi’s head during a funeral service. They reunite at a blind meeting and he approaches her.


I’m really excited cos i read this manga and found it to be quite good. 

Media not offering more details but here’s some potential spoilers:

  1. Yamapi is playing a “carnivorous” type of guy 
  2. There is supposed to be a love triangle as Ishihara has a friend who’s liked her for a long time.

This story is supposed to make you go “kyun kyun” or “kya~~” provided it’s adapted well. I’m abit worried about Yamapi not living up to the character as his overall image is too stylish. Tamaki Hiroshi, on the other hand would have been a perfect fit.

      Yes Honda’s acting is really bad, expected since she’s originally a model. Looking at the preview for next Getsu9, i have a bad feeling..not worried about Ishihara but Yamapi….is giving off a different vibe from what i read off the manga.
