Nakamaru lands first lead drama role

KAT-TUN member Yuichi Nakamaru will play the starring role in a drama series for the first time. He has been cast in TBS’s “RESCUE: Tokubetsu Koudo Kyuujotai,” which will air on Saturdays at 7:56pm, starting in January.

Nakamaru plays a young firefighter aiming to become part of a special rescue team, inspired by an incident in which he was saved as a child. The series will be filmed in collaboration with an actual rescue squad in Yokohama.

Takahisa Masuda of NEWS is playing a cadet on the rescue team. Both he and Nakamaru are undergoing physical training for their roles. Other supporting cast members include Yusuke Yamamoto, Jun Kaname, Ryo Ishibashi, and Ken Ishiguro.
