On January 31st, a press conference for Arashi’s Aiba Masaki’s upcoming drama, “Bartender“, was held in the Roppongi Hills Arena, and the cast members made an appearance. As we reported several times, “Bartender” is based on the ongoing manga in “Super Jump“, and Aiba will play the bartender, Sasakura Ryu.
Aiba has been trained by a professional bartender for the drama since August 2010, and in order to show the results of his training, he made an original cocktail (non-alcoholic), named “Friday Memories”, for a lucky fan who was chosen by drawing from among the 800 fans who showed up. He said, “I’m putting my love in it to make it delicious~!“, and it made all the fans scream. One of the cast members, Kanjiya Shihori, also tried Aiba’s “Friday Memories” (with alcohol), and she enjoyed the cocktail, saying, “Hmm, it’s delicious!”
“Bartender” will start on February 4th on TV Asahi, and Arashi’s upcoming single, “Lotus“, will be its theme song.
