The official website for the forthcoming live-action film adaptation of Non Tamashima’s romance shoujo manga Moekare wa Orange-iro / My Boyfriend in Orange has posted a 60-second full trailer featuring its theme song “Orange kiss” sung by Johnny & Associates’ boy idol group Snow Man. Hikaru Iwamoto, a 28-year-old member of Snow Man, plays Ebihara, a super shy and serious firefighter, in his first solo lead film.





In addition, Hidaka Ukisho, a 20-year-old member of Bishounen (a six-membr unit of Johnny’s Jr.) is cast as Genki Kojima, Ebihara’s junior played by Iwamoto. Ukisho says, “This is the first time I have had the opportunity to work with Iwamoto-kun, and he is always in touch with me, and he is a great leader on the set, and he is just so kind and wonderful! I’m sure you can feel our good relationship and fun atmosphere on the screen.”


The story centers on Moe Sasaki (Meru Nukumi), a high school girl who moves in with her family after the death of her father. Unable to get along with her classmates, Moe was a “loner” until she was rescued by Kyosuke Ebihara (Iwamoto), a firefighter, at her high school’s fire drill. Although he is blunt, Kyosuke is kind and mature, and he gradually gives her courage, and she becomes more and more attracted to him as she tries to break free from being a loner.


The Shosuke Murakami (One Week Friends, Promise Cinderella)-directed film is set to be released in Japan on July 8, 2022.
