I’ve always thought J-actress Ishihara Satomi was the cutest thing EVER, no matter what type of character she’s playing there is an underlying adorable quality that peeks through. I haven’t loved a Satomi dorama since Rich Man, Poor Woman but she’s been working nonstop in doramas and movies in the last two years and her career might see a new peak soon with the summer 2015 release of the epic apocalyptic fantasy movie Attack on Titan. She’s got a supporting role as Hans rather than as the main three characters but I can confirm from reading the source manga that it’s a pretty interesting and memorable role.
In addition to the AoT movie, Satomi is headlining the spin off web dorama based on the manga but focusing on the side lives of the soldiers during the non battle sequences. It’ll be neat seeing her rough and tumble, especially in contrast to this cute a kittens CF she did for Meiji brand gummy candy a few months ago. I’ve been meaning to write about it but now is the perfect time to infuse summer warmth and sweetness through the “puni puni dance”. Check it out and marvel at the cuteness explosion onscreen. Don’t forget to check out the official BTS video of Satomi learning the finger dance, which further confirms that her charm is innate even when she’s mucking things up.
