uploaded by JaEmArThA of YouTube

*DoS mode switch ON!* This dorama is going to be great! Ohno bullied by a lot of children… Can you sense the fun already?

Oh, on a side note… wanna know how many 5 year old kids you can beat up until you pass out? Try this survey on oneplusyou.com: How many five year olds could you take in a fight?

The scenario is this:

  • You are in an enclosed area roughly the size of a basketball court
  • There are no weapons or foreign objects
  • Everyone is wearing a cup (so no kicks to the groin)
  • The children are merciless and will show no fear
  • If a child is knocked unconscious, he is “out.” The same goes for you.

I got… 16 for me…
I’m a jelly doughnut, I know…

Oh… if you take the test and when you click “Ok, I’m finished, what’s my score?” and it takes you to a dating page, just click the “Take me to my score” link at the bottom.

So… if all those kids in Ohno’s CM were running towards him with the hopes of murdering him? Do you think he’ll be able to beat them up? How many would be Ohno’s score?

Post your own  scores in the test, if you can 🙂

How late am I with this news, seriously?

Ohno lands his 2nd lead role in TV Asahi’s comedy series “Uta no Oniisan”… yes, after the seriousness of his role in Maou, Ohno’s doing a comedy!

After starring in the TBS drama series “Maou” last season, Arashi’s Satoshi Ohno is back with his second starring TV role. This time, he will lead the TV Asahi comedy series “Uta no Oniisan,” which will air on Friday nights at 11:15pm this winter. This is said to be his first comedy role, including his performances in film and theater.

The story revolves around an unconventional children’s show called “Minna de Utao!” Ohno plays Kenta, a young musician whose band breaks up and who gets dumped by his girlfriend. To top it off, his own family labels him as useless. Unexpectedly, he becomes an “uta no oniisan,” a singing character on the children’s show.

The show begins filming on the 18th of this month and premieres on January 16.

According to the Press Release for Uta no Oniisan, it is:

The story is a comedy of a man who, by some strange chance, becomes an uta no onii-san on a children’s program, his struggles and growth.

Along with his acting power, Ohno’s personality supported his being chosen for the role. His characteristic pokerface with little emotion. It’s a joke amongst the member’s of Arashi to call him “old man” and he is known for his gentle personality. Being the high tension image singing guy from start to finish is quite far cry from the guy who, after all, has said, “I don’t like kids that much.”

Producer Kawanishi said, “From the start, it’s a story who’s protagonist is a helpless singing guy struggling. It’s shocking to see the character feeling forced and made to do something.”

Ah! Ohno’s finally getting his own dorama’s and this one will probably be a bit easier for him to play than Maou’s Naruse, especially since it’s mainly a comedy though I get a feeling it’ll probably a tearjerker too.

Hmmm, wonder if those producers would ever think of giving Aiba a dorama too… he’s getting kind of left out, isn’t he?

Minna! Please support Ohno-san’s new dorama!!

January 16 @ 11:15PM, remember that date!!


Um, anou… I just saw the screen caps for the promotion for this dorama (check out lj’s gholl88’s post) and… i just have to say one thing: Ohno looks effing creepy to me!!

For some reason he looks like a clown… it’s creepy! I hate clowns!

Eh~?! How am I going to watch this now? He’ll give me nightmares!
