Tohma Ikuta and Yui Aragaki make surprise appearance at event (re-edited)

Tohma Ikuta (25) and Yui Aragaki (22) had revealed on Friday the highlight of their new movie is Aragaki’s three-minute English scene, reports Daily Sports and Sankei Sports.

The two actors had made an unexpected appearance at the “ハナミズキ (Hanamizuki)” preview event in Osaka on August 6, in front of a full house crowd of 470 fans and press who were expecting to see a video message from the stars.

It is the third movie Ikuta has starred in this year.

“I see there are lots of men and women, young, and not so young people here today,” he said

The film is based on Yo Hitoto’s hit song of the same name, and is a love story that follows one Hokkaido couple over 10 years.

Ikuta had said the scene he likes the most is the one where Aragaki’s character is in New York and speaks English for three minutes.

“On the screen you’ll see a radiant Gakki,” he said.

Aragaki had been reported to have been practising her English lines throughout on-location filming in Japan.

“I’ve always been bad at English so I practised my lines over and over again until my head started to boil,” she said.

Finally, the star had said during the film Gakki moves from Hokkaido to Tokyo, to New York, and to Canada.

“It made me realise that a lot can happen over 10 years.

“This project has a lot of meaning to me.  I hope the people who see it come out thinking ‘I want to keep working hard’,” she said.

“ハナミズキ (Hanamizuki)” hits Japanese theaters on August 21.
