Gen Hoshino is cast in new WOWOW drama series “Plage.” The drama series is based on 2015 novel “Purajyu” by Tetsuya Honda (“Strawberry Night“) and directed by Yasuhiro Yoshida. WOWOW previously adapted another Tetsuya Honda novel into 2012 drama series “Hitorishizuka” starring Kaho. Drama series “Plage” centers around 32-year-old Takao played by Gen Hoshino.

Eventually he ends up living at the share house “Plage.”
“Plage” will air sometime this summer in Japan.
