Tamamori Yuta along with Nakyanma Yuma, Lewis Jesse, and Johnnys' Junior Matsumura Hokuto is staring in a new drama based on the manga "Pin to Kona"
Drama starts in the summer of July, every Thursday at 9 p.m. on the TBS channel.
From what I can understand, Tamamori Yuta will play Kyōnosuke Kawamura, a son of a famous household but isn't good at it Kabuki.
And Nakayama Yuma of NYC will play his rival, a talented Kabuki performer from an unknown family.
And of course, they both fell in love with the same girl, played by Kawashima Umika of 9nine.
Pin to Kona won the 57th Shogakukan Manga Awards.

Ako Shimaki's (Boku ni Natta Watashi) shōjo manga series Pin to Kona is getting a live-action television adaptation that will premiere in July. Kis-My-Ft2 idol group member Yūta Tamamori (Gokusen's Ryōta Takasugi, Nobunaga no Chef's Ken) will star in the series as Kyōnosuke Kawamura, the handsome son of a noble family. Idol group NYC member Yūma Nakayama (Piece - Kanojo no Kioku) will play Ichiya Sawayama, a talented kabuki novice from no notable family, and 9nine group member Umika Kawashima (Hunter × Hunter: Phantom Rouge's Pyro) will play the kabuki-loving heroine Ayame Chiba. The romance manga follows both kabuki actors as they fall in love with the same girl.
Johnny's Jr. members Hokuto Matsumura and Jesse will co-star in the series as a fellow kabuki actor who is jealous of Ichiya and Kyōnosuke's friend, respectively. Kōji Yamamoto, Masahiro Takashima, Takaaki Enoki, and Kyōko Enami will also play kabuki actors and leaders, and Gorō Kishitani will play Kyōnosuke's father.
