Arashi’s Aiba Masaki in “Bartender” Drama

On November 20th, it was announced that Aiba Masaki of the popular boy band Arashi will star in Asahi TV’s drama “Bartender” (Fridays at 11:15PM) starting next year January. It’ll be roughly a year since Aiba has starred in a drama series. Aiba had a great performance in his last drama, “My Girl” where he played a single father. This time Aiba is taking up the challenge of a bartender that has the genius ability to heal the mental scars of his customers one-by-one with cocktails. The original work of the same name was a serialized manga featured in “Super Jump” printed by Shueisha in 2004 (written by Jou Araki). It’s a popular manga with human drama that sold over 2.5 million single copies. Before filming, Aiba said, “I want to create a cocktail that will remain in everyone’s memories.”
