Oh ho ho, what do we have here? When did Matsumoto Jun grow up? I mean really grow up, not sorta pretend to be a grown up such as in Natsu no Koi wa Nijiiro ni Kagayaku where he romanced Takeuchi Yuko. And when did Eita get so hot? I’m doing double takes here, and it’s mostly because both guys clearly will be going shirtless (and kickboxing) while getting in each other’s faces in the upcoming Lucky 7, co-starring the hotter-than-ever Matsushima Nanako and the interesting to watch Naka Riisa. If this is a hit, Arashi is really nailing it for me these days, since I also loved Sakurai Sho‘s recent Fall dorama with Kitagawa Keiko.
Lucky 7 is about a 7-member detective agency in Tokyo that investigates cases while clashing internally with a variety of personality and personal issues. MatsuJun is the newbie while Eita is the calm and collected senpai of the two. Lucky 7 will also reunite the formerly brother-sister duo of MatsuJun and Nanako, from when they played Domyouji Tsukasa and Tsubaki, respectively, in Hana Yori Dango. With this first fabulous trailer, Lucky 7 has shot up to the top of my J-dorama to-watch list. If the chemistry between MatsuJun and Eita rocks, this could be the next great buddy dorama since Shun and Hiro in Tokyo Dogs.
