Matsumura Hokuto in upcoming drama and some thoughts

It has been announced that Matsumura Hokuto will have a role in the summer drama series Kuro no Onna Kyoshi, which stars actress Eikura Nana and will air on TBS starting in July on Friday nights.

MomoEdgewood's Mediawatch article. (English)

I am excited for Hokuto. I have been following him since he started showing up as a Junior and even then it seemed like there would be big things in store for him. So being in the regular cast of a Golden Time drama is a real big step for him, especially coming off of Shiritsu Bakaleya Koukou.

Of course with this news it means four out of the six of the Bakaleya6 have roles in summer dramas now, with Morimoto Shintaro in GTO and Lewis Jesse and Tanaka Juri in Sprout. Only Kyomoto Taiga and Kouchi Yuugo remain without something new, outside of the Bakaleya movie of course. It would be nice for the two to have a drama role as well for the summer season, even if it is just a guest role. But even then I am overall surprised that so many of them have roles for the next drama season. So if they do not get a role than I will be fine as they have a movie and there will be other seasons. I am sure Johnny's is not done with giving pushes to all the boys in this grouping yet.

Though I do wish they would make them an official group. According to the filming reports for July's Shounen Club episodes they are performing together a few times and with the Bakaleya movie I do not think Johnny's will be splitting them up anytime soon for promotional purposes. And they could become the next Junior super group, like KAT-TUN and Kis-My-Ft2, if they do become a group and continue to get this kind of work for the years up to their debut.

That and I guess I would love to have a better name for them than the Bakaleya6, though with Johnny's I guess it would be a 50/50 chance of the official group name actually being better. But at least with their last names starting with, M, M, K, K, T and L the chances of their name being spelled with those are slim to none.

I'm so happy for the boys, I'm really hoping that they wil become a permanent group. I was just watching there Hell, no performance from the last shounen club and I thought they were so great performance wise and that they are great as a group and can grow up togheter to be a perfect new Johnny group.
I'm really hoping that they would get a group name fast.
They've all got such great potential, hoping that Johnny wil use them wisely and also hoping that my hoping, believing they wil become a permanent group wil not be crushed because I know how weird/bad Johnny his decisions can be sometimes.

First time I'm making a comment, I also want to say that I'm following your blog for some time now and I want to thank you for the info and for your efforts and your own thoughts that you share ^^

I really love this news. Hokku is a great actor and deserve to get the chance in acting.
The drama sounds interesting and my favorite actress is the lead role so i have another drama in my watch list. Hmmm...I can't wait! <3

So glad Hokuto gets another drama role. He's my favorite out of Bakaleya6 acting-wise. i think he has potential and it's great to see him given a chance.

I agree that they would make a great group but watching them performed 'Hell, no' i hope JE won't push them toward KT style too much. Juri wasn't bad but the whole group in general didn't have that punch to pull of this kind of song, at least not yet. they'll probably grow into it. and i like their dancing. i'm curious to see them do more of a happy song like Arashi or HSJ style now.

Johnny's would be making a huge mistake not to keep them as a group, IMHO. They all just have so much potential that they only seem to now be tapping into.

Thank you for reading and for the comment. I really appreciate it.

@ mayarta

There seems to be a bunch of dramas this upcoming season that I want to watch, and this one of course is on the list because of Hokku.

@ Jpopwanderer

It is great he got another role, and hopefully he will be able to do more with his character than with Bakaleya as I do think he could potentially be a good actor and I want to really see it.

I think as long as they have Juri they will be pushed to songs with raps, but maybe they can start doing covers of Kis-My-Ft2 songs as those may have raps but are usually still lighter than KAT-TUN songs so they may fit better with the rest of the group. Or they could start getting their own original songs that will a perfect fit for the group.

@ E . L

I can't wait to see more of them in the future as well. These boys are really showing signs that they could go far.
