Jun Matsumoto's new drama

I think Jun Matsumoto's last drama was Bambino (if I'm not mistaken). But now he is going to star in a new drama alongside Yui Aragaki (the girl from Koizora, the movie version). It's going to be entitled Smile.

Jun Matsumoto plays a half-Filipino whose father has died and mother has disappeared. Despite his misfortune and the issues he deals with, such as race, he lives his life positively with a constant smile.

Similarly, Gakky plays a young woman living cheerfully despite losing her ability to speak due to an accident. Her character is said to be modeled after a real actress in the theatrical troupe that Takuma runs.

"Smile" will air on Friday nights at 10:00pm, starting in April.

I hope this one would be nice :D ehehe can't wait!,
