SMAP’s Shingo Katori (香取慎吾),34, will star in Fuji TV’s next “Getsu 9”, Monday night drama series.
The currently untitled series will have Katori playing a marriage agency advisor who prides himself on bringing together countless couples, with his motto of “the man who sells happiness.” Meisa Kuroki (黒木メイサ),22, and Naohito Fujiki (藤木直人),38, have also been cast.

Katori is the youngest member of SMAP, a popular idol group from the agency Johnny & Associates. Shingo Katori has acted in several dramas such as Three Peace, and has appeared as a voice actor in such anime series as Akazukin Chacha, in which he voiced the part of the werewolf boy Riiya.

Naohito Fujiki is a Japanese actor and singer. He became an actor when he won a casting competition during his college years at Waseda University. Fujiki is also a pop singer and has held many concerts all around Japan.

The screenplay is said to be an original love story. Kuroki plays one of Katori’s clients, though she is “too beautiful” – the agency’s advisors are not used to finding a match for someone like her. Although Katori begins to fall for her, he puts his effort into trying to set her up with the rich and handsome lawyer played by Fujiki.

This is Katori’s fourth time starring in one of Fuji TV’s “Getsu 9” dramas (Mondays 9:00pm). For Kuroki, this will be her first appearance in that time slot. The series is scheduled to premiere in April.
