Suzuki Airi to star in TV drama

Photobucket

Seems like Airi's popularity keeps getting bigger and bigger.
She has been chosen to play Sakurada Junko in a drama called 'Aku Yuu Monogatari'.
Sakurada Junko is an old school j pop singer who started her career at the age of 15 back in 1973.
The drama is about the life of the famed songwriter Aku Yuu, its unclear at the moment if Airi will have any dialogue or acting parts, but she does has a singing role in it (see below).
Also appearing in this drama is Takahashi Ai and Risa Niigaki, they will be playing the roles of Mitsuyo and Keiko (aka 'the pink ladys).
I think its really cool that h!p girls get as much exposure as possible as it will increase the chances of them getting further roles outside of the h!p bubble.
Below is a selection of photos of Airi in her outfit ... she looks like a boy, and two videos, one of Sakurada Junko singing 'Watashi no Aoi Tori' and 'Juu-shichi no Natsu' which if you remember 'W' also covered.
The other video is Airi also singing 'Watashi no Aoi Tori' ... she looks so adorable its unreal, and she sounds great, I cant wait to see this drama.

Airiin's talents are really being recognized and I can't tell you how happy I am that she's even being noticed outside of H!P as this role truly proves! ^-^ Gambatte Airiin!!
