I'm so annoyed right now it's not even funny.
First, there's this article in Oriental Daily
, a Chinese newspaper, here
. ( Chinese Text and TranslationCollapse )
I know Ohno's no angel, but I can't believe they mentioned him and Oshio in the same sentence. Even if Ohno did smoke pot, what Oshio (allegedly) did was much worse.
I'm seeing a lot of wank on Ohno's drama. I don't want to get into it, but I want to put in my two cents. I'm happy Ohno's getting a drama, but disappointed in the genre. I was hoping for something more mature like "Maou", or even a romantic comedy. I know next to nothing about the manga, but after reading the synopsis, I'm a little worried. I mean, his character's a 17-year-old monster who goes to the human world to fight other monsters. He's turning 30 this year! Plus I don't want him to be typecasted into this kind of role in the future. I thought Yatterman turned out fine, but dramas are different from movies. Ohno's a great actor, and I'm sure he'll do his best in it. I'll still watch it, I'm just hoping it'll work out somehow.
And lastly, I hope Chinen's not in it.
