Shun Oguri To Play As A Detective In New TV Asahi Drama
Japanese actor Shun Oguri will be starring in TV Asahi's new drama "BORDER". He will be playing as 'Ango Ishikawa', a detective who happens to communicate with dead people, supporting his investigations in a big way. He gained this special ability after mysteriously surviving a near-death situation when he was shot in the head.

The story was written by Naoki Prize winning writer Kazuki Kaneshiro. Acting alongside Oguri are Aoki Munetaka as 'Yuma Tachibana', Ishikawa's rival detective, Haru as 'Mika Higa', a special medical examiner and playing as Ishikawa's boss 'Takuji Ichikura' is Kenichi Endo.

This isn't Oguri's first time portraying as a detective in a drama as he acted as the high school detective 'Shinichi Kudo' in the live action adaptation of the popular manga written by Gosho Aoyama 'Detective Conan', which was broadcasted in 2006 and 2007 by YTV and NTV respectively. But this is his first starring drama in TV Asahi.

Catch "BORDER" as it starts airing in April, every Thursdays at 9PM (JST).
