Just in case you don't read arama :p

It has been announced that V6‘s Junichi Okada will star in NHK‘s Taiga drama slated to air on 2014. The said drama is titled, “Gunshi Kanbee” (Kanbee Strategist), where Okada will play the role of Kanbee Kuroda (Kanbei Kuroda or Yoshitaka Kuroda), a legendary strategist for Hideyoshi Toyotomi during the turbulent days of Warring State Period. Kanbee is known to be ambitious and have plans in taking the country for himself from the “three heroes”- Oda Nobunaga, Hideyoshi Toyotomi, and Ieyasu Tokugawa. Furthermore, Kanbee is known as a Christian-convert, loyal to his wife, loves poems, and tea ceremonies.

“Gunshi Kanbee” is Okada’s debut in Taiga drama. “I want to play a multi-faceted role like Kanbee that is rich in humanity. As the strongest no.2, he [Kanbee] has an image that makes Hideyoshi scared of him because he can do too much. [Kanbee] is an uncanny and attractive person who plays the roles of a military commander and schemer, ” Okada commented regarding the huge role that he has to play.

Nevertheless, Okada also shared that he has always love history and have dreamed of becoming a history teacher.

“Gunshi Kanbee” will start shooting on Aug 2013 and is slated for broadcast on Jan 2014.

I apologize for getting into the conversation, but if we have luck, sometimes Taiga Doramas come traslated directly when are aired overseas (I mean, NHK International Channel, that would be great to have in my TV xD).

I have some Taiga Doramas (even if still never finished watched one xD) and are all subbed directly from the TV n_~

Yeah I've never been able to finish a taiga (started Gou for Ueno Juri but stopped), but hopefully with Okada in it I can download if only to view the eye-candy not guilty at all

Big and good news!

That means around 50 episodes full of Junichi *o*

Can't wait to watch it... But at least We need to wait till 2014 ^^

BTW, that's an interesting Japanese Era. Meiji, Sengoku and Edo are interesting Japanese Periods to learn about (between others). I like History too (and would be great to have ♥Okada♥ as Sensei).
