Arashi’s Masaki Aiba gets his first starring film role in “Miracle: Debikuro-kun no Koi to Maho”

By Kevin Ouellette | Eiga.commiracle-cast.jpg

On Wednesday it was annouinced that Masaki Aiba of the boy band Arashi will get his first solo starring film role in Isshin Inudo’s Miracle: Debikuro-kun no Koi to Maho. Aiba previously worked with Inudo on 2007’s Yellow Tears, in which all of Arashi was featured.

Aiba’s co-stars will include Toma Ikuta, South Korean actress Han Hyo-joo, and Nana Eikura. The film will depict the love of these four characters creating a miracle on Christmas night.

The movie is based on a 2013 novel by Kou Nakamura (100 Kai Naku Koto) which was inspired by singer-songwriter Tatsuro Yamashita’s classic Japanese Christmas song, “Christmas Eve”.

Aiba will play Hikaru, a mildly incompetent bookstore employee who’s just a bit too nice for his own good. Hikaru is an aspiring manga artist, and distributes mysterious “Debikuro Communication” flyers at night.

Eikura will play a childhood friend of Hikaru’s named Anna who always watches over him, Han will play a world-famous lighting designer named So-yeon who gets to know Hikaru through a random coincidence, and Ikuta will play a former university classmate of Hikaru’s named Kitayama who’s gone on to become a hugely popular manga artist.

“Miracle: Debikuro-kun no Koi to Maho” will be released in Japan in Fall 2014.
