What’s up, Matsujun! Many sightings in the city at night…the pressure of NHK Taiga in the background

Matsumoto Jun participating in the “Lord Ieyasu Riding Warrior Procession” held within the “Hamamatsu Festival” on May 5, 2012.

As the filming of NHK’s historical drama “Dousuru Ieyasu” reaches its climax, Matsumoto Jun (39) of “Arashi” fame, who plays the lead role in the drama, has been frequently spotted in the city at night.

In April, Matsumoto Jun attended the birthday party of multi-creator Kunichi Nomura (50) held at a club in Tokyo. Nomura is the husband of model Mayumi Sada (45) and is well-connected in the industry.

The party was attended by a distinguished lineup, including P. Yamashita (Tomohisa Yamashita, 38), Mariya Nishiuchi (29), Tadanobu Asano (49), Yosuke Kubozuka (44), and Yojiro Noda (37) of “Radwimps. The party went on until 4:00 a.m., and Matsujun came out of the restaurant feeling dizzy.

Matsujun’s “love of drinking parties” is well known among those involved. It is said that he also attended the drinking party of Yoshikazu Azumaya (51), a former member of the House of Councillors known as Garcy, who was arrested for violating the Violent Acts Punishment Law (habitual threats). Last year, Gershie attracted attention as an exposé-type YouTube star, and his revelations about the backstage of actors and idols with whom he had interacted shook the entertainment world, but Matsujun was largely unscathed.

There were times when “Gurthy sent out lines to celebrities he had interacted with to the effect of insulating himself from them. While most of them replied in a casual manner, Matsujun replied with a long message saying, ‘I want to keep in touch with Gershie.

Gershey was so moved by this that he declared that he would continue his relationship with Matsujun. The revelation was that he would sneak her into a cab at the end of a drinking session to avoid being photographed by a weekly magazine, but that he would return to the drinking session, earning him the nickname “Boomerang Matsumoto.

Matsujun is currently filming a TV drama series, but he says that he holds drinking parties regularly. Why has this information not been leaked to the press until now?

I heard that this year, Matsujun has been talking to people around him, saying, ‘I found a new attendant to replace Gyasi.

The filming of “Dousuru Ieyasu” is different from previous Taiga dramas in that it makes extensive use of computer graphics, which sometimes extends the filming hours to late at night, and it has been reported that the filming is quite grueling. I wonder if it is safe to hold drinking parties and the like to keep the actors in good physical condition.

In the past, Ieyasu has been played by famous actors such as Masahiko Tsugawa (Aoi Tokugawa III in 2000), Toshiyuki Nishida (Koumeigatsuji in 2006), and Kinya Kitaoji (Seiten wo Sukeruke in 2009). In contrast, many viewers feel uncomfortable with the slender, modern-looking Matsujun playing Ieyasu.

Furthermore, compared to the powerful performances of Junichi Okada (42), who plays Nobunaga Oda, and Hiroshi Abe (59), who plays Shingen Takeda, Matsujun’s performance is lacking and feels hazy. Although the ratings have remained in double digits, they seem to lack excitement. I think it is a stressful situation for Matsujun in many ways, so this may be the best he can do for a change of pace.

(A source at an entertainment agency) “At this rate, I wonder if he will be able to make it through the grueling schedule of the Taiga to the end…I’m worried.
