[Updated] 2PM’s Nichkhun Cast for New Japanese Movie “Ouran High School Host Club”
2PM member Nichkhun has been cast for a new Japanese movie.
He will star in an upcoming movie that is a rendition of popular Japanese manga “Ouran High School Host Club.” The movie is set to be released on March 17 of next year. It is expected that there will be great anticipation for his acting, as this is the first time Nichkhun is taking a shot at acting in Japan.
Nichkhun will take on the role of the CEO of a distinguished Singaporean company, starring in the movie as the older brother of Japanese girl group member AKB48’s Shinoda Mariko. It is expected that he will steal the Japanese women’s hearts with his crisp but warm demeanor in a suit.
“After seeing Nichkhun’s singing activities, we felt he has great potential as an actor. His role in this film needs to be fluent in English, always confident and professional, while being very smooth at the same time. We thought Nichkhun’s personality perfectly fit into this character so we decided to cast him,” the production crew said.
“Ouran High School Host Club” revolves around a female student who enters the club of an upper-class high school in Tokyo, disguised as a boy. It aired in Japan as a TV animation series in 2006 and a TV drama in 2011.
