Yamapi and Kame to Reunite for Spring Romance Dorama with Kimura Fumino as Leading Lady

Waaaaaaaaa, this is the best J-dorama casting news for nostalgia fans, and highly promising news for those wanting a dorama rom-com. Twelve years after their hit dorama collaboration in Nobuta wo Produce, Yamashita Tomohisa and Kamenashi Kazuya is reuniting for a spring romance on NTV called Boku, Unmei no Hito desu (I, Am Your Destined One or I, Am Your Soulmate). Yamapi and Kame isn’t braving new ground as the destined ones for each other as Kimura Fumino is the leading lady but the reunion of the two male leads is certainly the biggest selling point of this dorama.

Kame and Fumino are the destined lovers – he’s a man who believes in destiny and constantly confesses to woman be believes to be his soulmate and gets rejected each time, while she’s a practical woman who doesn’t believe fate and rejects Kame in search of the safe romance – while Yamapi is playing a mysterious character calling himself God that offers love advice to Kame.

OMG if it’s anything as insanely addictive as “Seishun Amigo” I’m going to wallow in nostalgia happiness for two months come April. Continue reading
