Takadanobaba, 8:05 a.m.
It’s a mid-November morning at a long-established movie theater in Takadanobaba (Shinjuku Ward), and a young man is sitting on the guardrail in front of the theater, which has a retro Showa-era atmosphere. It was Ren Meguro, 24, of Snow Man fame.
Meguro has been one of the most popular Johnny’s talents since he was a junior, thanks to his good looks and style. He is known as a talented actor among young Johnny’s, and he played one of the main characters in the drama “Kyoba II” (Fuji TV) starring Takuya Kimura that aired this New Year’s.” (Entertainment industry insider)
On this day, Meguro was filming for a new movie. She was shooting for a new movie and holding a flyer for a play in her hand. In the scene, she is sitting on the guardrail with the flyer in her hand, looking at the entrance of the theater with an unhappy expression on her face, as if she is being waited on by someone.
Meguro was sitting on the guardrail, looking at the entrance of the theater with a blank expression on her face, as if she was trying to get into the role. Meguro’s melancholy profile gave off the aura of a future great actor.
