Anticipated jdrama: TAKE FIVE with Karasawa Toshiaki!!!
I just wrote up an anticipated jdrama post for Matsuda Shota’s new TBS drama Sennyuu Tantei Tokumei……which then led me to finding yet ANOTHER upcoming TBS jdrama, TAKE FIVE. AND IT’S STARRING KARASAWA TOSHIAKI!!!!!
This drama is about “Take Five,” a group of thieves that reunites after they retired from the…thievery trade..for 20 years. Karasawa Toshiaki will play one of the thieves who randomly receives a stolen painting from a mysterious stranger. This leads him to band together with his fellow thieves once again.
“There are thieves of justice!”
The trailer is really funny, it’s not that often that a preview has me laughing out loud but this one did. For some reason the combination of the funky music, the funny narration, and the random scenes made me laugh. Or maybe it’s just because I’m on a high now that I know Karasawa Toshiaki is the lead. HEHEHEHE. It looks like there will be a lot of humor, romance, and some action! I am looking forward to it!
^A funny moment in the preview, when Karasawa Toshiaki’s character has to hide in a cabinet with another guy…and then he goes “You…could you be…” *he trails off* AHAHA does this mean I can also expect BROMANCE??
And yes, there are also some younger faces here as well! For any Matsuzaka Tori fans (Asuko March), he is also starring in this drama as part of the TAKE FIVE team!
[And random shout-out to PEAKO, my fellow Karasawa Toshiaki fan……if you’re here…..]
*Update* TAKE FIVE: Eps 1-4
Watched the beginning episodes of TAKE FIVE. The first episode was a blast but from there everything went downhill. The fun part about ep1 is the humor and the bromance between Karasawa & Matsuzaka. It is cheesy but entertaining. But from episode 2 and on it just got too cheesy for me. T__T Also Matsuzaka’s character becomes this troll that won’t stop talking about how he’s a thief IN FRONT OF A POLICE DETECTIVE. *FACEPALM*
