Discover the latest on location! Suddenly studying in New York, unrestrained personal life in love: ……
One afternoon on a crisp, clear autumn day, actor Shuhei Nomura (27) emerged from a rundown building near Nishiarai Daishi (Adachi Ward). He was apparently filming for the ABEMA original drama “Kaisha wa Gakko ni Nai da yo Shinsei Gyakushu Hen” (The Company is Not a School: New Generation Strikes Back), in which he plays the lead role for the first time after studying in New York.
While waiting, Nomura was talking with the staff with an iced coffee in his hand and a serious expression on his face. Before studying abroad, Nomura had been in the news for her wild personal life, including her flirtation with model Kiko Mizuhara (31) and the leaked video of her “walking cigarette” on SNS.
“She is friendly in a good way and cocky in a bad way. …… I can’t use honorifics very well.

Since she was successful at a young age, some of her co-stars felt that she was getting carried away.
After studying abroad for a year, Nomura returned to work and is said to be trying to “change her character.
After returning to work after studying abroad for a year, Nomura is said to be trying to “change” her character. “My office told me to refrain from using Twitter for the time being to avoid flaming,” she said. She was also told to be strict about her behavior on the set and her irreverent comments in variety shows. His unpretentious personality is one of the reasons for his popularity, but the agency really wants to market him as a mature actor. His “change of heart” is attracting a lot of attention from the industry.
Will he be able to live up to expectations?
