The cast of the Japanese drama adaptation of the popular manga/anime series, Ouran High School Host Club, are set to come back to fans in a new upcoming movie as well. In addition to the original cast, Nichkhun from 2 PM and Japanese girl group member Shinoda Mariko from AKB48 are also cast in the drama. Am I excited? No. But should I be? I guess so.
TBS announced earlier today that, in addition to the YAB remake, it will also be gearing up to release a live-action adaptation of Hatori Bisco’s manga, Ouran High School Host Club. The manga was already made into an 26-episode anime back in 2006, and due to its popularity, was also later dubbed in English and released to the U.S audience by Funimation in 2008. The drama is tentatively set to be released sometime during July later this year.
