Arashi’s Jun Matsumoto (26) talked about how he would like to fall in love, and reveals a new Arashi single at a press conference for his new drama this morning in Tokyo, reports Oricon Style.

夏の恋は虹色に輝く(Natsu no Koi ha Niji-iro ni Kagayaku) drama

The singer appeared with his fellow cast members for “夏の恋は虹色に輝く(Natsu no Koi ha Niji-iro ni Kagayaku)”, including his character’s love interest, actress Yuko Takeuchi (30).

After it had been revealed that the “first-moment-they-met scene” had taken four days to shoot, Matsujun talked about his ideal way to fall in love.

“I’ve never fallen in love at first sight before so I’d like to experience love at first sight.

“But if I’ve never experienced it, maybe it’s not possible!”

It had also been revealed that his group will perform the theme song to the drama, titled “Love Rainbow”.  A release date is yet to be decided.

The drama centres on Taiga Kusunoki (Matsumoto), a 26-year-old actor and son to a legendary Japanese actor.  Taiga spends every day struggling over relationships and jobs as he fails to live up to his father’s name, but one day, he meets Shiori Kitamura (Takeuchi), a woman with a sad past but has her heart set on being optimistic every day.

When asked about how he felt doing a summer love story, Matsujun said it had been a while since he had last done a summer drama so he was both excited and nervous about filming.

He also added that he gets into character by trying to visualize the “there’s nothing I can do about it” feeling second generation actors must get from their environment.

“夏の恋は虹色に輝く(Natsu no Koi ha Niji-iro ni Kagayaku)” will air on Fuji TV Japan from July 19.
