Jun Matsumoto (松本潤) will star in Fuji TV’s Monday night drama series next season.

Matsumoto, born August 30, 1983, often called MatsuJun, is a Japanese idol, singer and actor. He is a member of boy band Arashi and is best known to drama audiences for his portrayal as Tsukasa Domyoji in the Hana Yori Dango series.

Matsumoto will be the first member of “Arashi” to appear in a drama during that time slot, and this will be his first lead role in a full-length Fuji TV series.

The drama, titled “Natsu no Koi wa Nijiiro ni Kagayaku (夏の恋は虹色に輝く),” is an original love story by “Buzzer Beat” screenwriter Mika Omori(大森美香). The female lead is being played by Yuko Takeuchi (竹内結子), who starred in “Lunch Queen” and “Fukigen na Gene,” both also written by Omori.

In the show, Matsumoto plays a struggling actor who has developed a complex due to his father, a famous actor. The character is described as being “tsundere,” a term referring to people who are normally cold in personality but become overly fawning when they are around their love interest. In this case, that love interest is an older woman being played by Takeuchi, whose character is said to be spirited, but also mysterious due to certain circumstances.

“Natsu no Koi wa Nijiiro ni Kagayaku” will air Monday nights at 9:00pm, starting in July.
