V6’s Junichi Okada and the cast of his new movie 天地明察 (Tenchimeisatsu) visited a movie theatre in Tokyo to celebrate its premiere on September 15, reports Sankei Sports.
Johnny’s talents Okada and Kanjani8’s Yu Yokoyama took part in an event in the Marunouchi Picadilly 1, Tokyo, on Saturday.
One of the movie’s actors and Japanese kabuki performer Somegoro Ichikawa was absent from the event due to an injury during one of his own stage shows. The actor had left a letter apologising for his absence, to which Okada said he hoped Ichikawa would get better soon.
“I hope he can recover as soon as possible, and we can see him dancing gracefully on stage again,” he said.
The star watching apparatus used in the movie was also on special display on Saturday.
V6 leader Masayuki Sakamoto will swap the microphone and fancy costumes for an apron and kitchen knife from April, it was announced on March 14, reports Sankei Sports.
It has been reported Fuji TV is starting a new show on April 2 called “ノンストップ！ (Nonstop!)” (Mon ~ Fri from 9:55am), which will feature a cooking session every Friday lead by Sakamoto.
The V6 leader has said his family owns a grocery shop and so he practically grew up surrounded by food and cooking.
“Enjoy watching how I can use a kitchen knife and frying pan!”
In the past Sakamoto has even said how cooking is more than a hobby for him.
“It’s a dream of mine to own a small restaurant, something like 30-metres-squared,” he said.
It has been reported the cooking session will also feature Sakamoto going out to buy the ingredients himself, giving people the chance to see where their food comes from and who makes it.
