The drama is set in a police boarding school. The place is full of loser students, but every week they grow stronger and grow as people. It is Fujigaya’s first go at a drama series lead role.
“[My character is] stupid and lame, but there’s a lot of coming-of-age drama and ambition in it,” Fujigaya said.
It has been reported one of the police instructor characters gives Fujigaya’s character a hard time, and there is a scene where Fujigaya gets slapped in the face for causing trouble.
“I think my parents are going to be surprised when they see it,” he said.
But the Johnny’s talent said it was also something funny to watch.
“I get beaten up every time so I hope the fans enjoy looking out for it,” he said.
Fujigaya’s co-stars also include his fellow Kis-My-Ft2 member Hiromitsu Kitayama and actress Ayame Gouriki.
“A lot of the cast are the same age so it was easy to become a team,” Fujigaya said.
It has been reported during the press conference, a cake was brought out to celebrate Fujigaya’s 25th birthday, which was on June 25.
“Beginners” goes on air from July 12.
