Shun Oguri, Mao Inoue reunite in “Veterinarian Dolittle” drama

It is now confirmed that Shun Oguri (27) and Mao Inoue (23) will co-star in a new drama series this fall. The pair, who appeared together in the live-action “Hana Yori Dango,” have been cast in an adaptation of “Juui Dolittle” (“Veterinarian Dolittle”), a manga written by Midori Natsu and illustrated by Kiyoshi Chikuyama.

Oguri plays the part of Kenichi Tottori, a highly capable veterinarian known by the nickname “Dolittle.” He has a sharp tongue, and he maintains a strict attitude about issues such as money and proper pet care. But in addition to saving animals, he also helps fix the problems of their owners.

Inoue plays the female lead as Kenichi’s co-worker Asuka Tajima, while Hiroki Narimiya (27) as rival veterinarian Masaru Hanabishi. The show will also focus on the love triangle between the three characters.

The show will air on TBS in the Sunday 9:00pm time slot, starting in October.
