NCT‘s Yuta will play the main character in the Japanese drama “Cool and Stupid Man”.
Yuta has been cast in the role of Ichikura Hayate, the male lead in the new drama ‘Cool and Stupid Man’ on the Japanese TV Tokyo channel.
Based on the popular Japanese animation of the same name, “Cool and Stupid Man” is a drama about four men who are entangled through fateful encounters.
Hayate Ichikura, a handsome college student played by Yuta, is a person who is dissatisfied with his personality and repeatedly acts foolishly. As he is a character with an unexpected charm that pretends to be cool on the outside but is ashamed on the inside, he is expected to charm local viewers by showing off a colorful side.
Yuta is active globally through his group NCT activities and made his acting debut with the movie “HiGH & LOW THE WORST X” released in Japan last year.
“Cool and Stupid Man” will air every Friday, starting with the first broadcast on April 14th.
