A little after 6:00 p.m. in late August, Kento Nakajima (27) of “Sexy Zone” and the TV personality LiLiCo (50) appeared at the main entrance of a studio in Tokyo where dramas and variety shows are being recorded every day.
The two are currently co-starring in the drama “She Was Beautiful” (Fuji TV). LiLiCo plays the editor-in-chief of the fashion magazine editorial department where the drama takes place, while Nakajima plays the subordinate deputy editor.
I was expecting …… that both of them would go home after the recording, but LiLiCo was the only one who got into the waiting cab. But LiLiCo was the only one who got into the waiting taxi. Nakajima and his staff saw LiLiCo off with smiles and went back to the lobby.
“LiLiCo was impressed with Nakajima’s care for his co-stars and staff. The other day, Nakajima gave her some ramen noodles as a souvenir from Fukuoka, and she was very happy.
Even within Johnny’s, Nakajima is said to be well-liked by his seniors. The reason for this is probably his politeness.
