Playing a man who restarts his life by working in construction is Kazunari Ninomiya’s (27) character in his new drama “フリーター、家を買う (Freeter, Ie wo Kau)” starting in October, it was announced yesterday, reports Sankei Sports.

The story starts with Seiji Take (Kazunari), a man whose life is at rock bottom.  He had quit his job after three months, has lost his dreams, money, and doesn’t get along with his family.  But after he finds out his mother is suffering from depression, he gets a part time job at a construction site and sets his heart on “buying a house for my family, even if I’m just a freelancer”.

Despite having to prepare for Arashi’s national stadium concerts and promoting his upcoming movies “大奥 (Ohoku)” and “GANTZ”, the singer said he is up for the challenge.

“I’m working with an amazing team and cast.

“I hope I can send a message out to people about what can go through your mind at work, the changes that happen, and how a family can be rebuilt,” he said.

It has been two years since Nino has had a leading role in a drama series.  The last being in October 2008 with “流星の絆 (Ryusei no Kizuna)”.

The leading lady role will be played by Karina (26).  Her character, Manami Chiba, meets Seiji at the construction site where she is the on-location director.  Although she is the same age as Seiji, Manami has lived a completely different life to him, graduating from a top university and landing a job at a major company.  The two characters show no affection for one another at the beginning, but as time goes by, Seiji can’t help but be affected by the way Manami lives her life.

Filming for “フリーター、家を買う (Freeter, Ie wo Kau)” will begin at the end of August.
