Tomoya Nagase to star in remake of South Korean drama “Sorry, I Love You”

It has been announced that TOKIO lead singer Tomoya Nagase will be starring in a new TBS Summer drama titled “Gomen, Aishiteru”, a remake of the 2004 South Korean drama “Sorry, I Love You”. Starring  So Ji-Sub and Lim Soo-Jung, “Sorry, I Love You” was a huge critical and commercial success.

The plot of “Gomen, Aishiteru” follows Ritsu Okazaki (Tomoya Nagase) who was abandoned by his mother Reiko (Shinobu Otake).  One day Ritsu gets involved in an incident that causes him to suffer from a life threatening injury, the injury is so severe that his life expectancy comes into question. With Ritsu insure if he will be able to live a much longer life he decides to make amends with his mother and be good to her before his death. Unfortunately he sees how good she is to her son Satoru (Kentaro Sakaguchi), a very successful idol pianist. Satoru has been able to provide his mother with a very happy and lavish lifestyle, meanwhile Ritsu has been struggling to make ends meet.

Thinking that she abandoned him solely due to poverty, Ritsu vows to get revenge on his mother. He eventually runs into a woman called Rinka (Riho Yoshioka ) during a chance meeting,  and he eventually falls for her. Unfortunately, Rinka has her eyes on Ritsu’s half-brother Satoru who is also her childhood friend.

This is the very first time Tomoya has had the lead in a Sunday TBS drama. “Gomen, Aishiteru” will begin filming in May.

      nagase is an interesting choice

      but i refuse to entertain the notion nagase and sakaguchi kentaro could even be related lol

      • Dalooshe

        Haha but I will for the reason that just the idea of those two on screen in one show is destabilizing my heartbeat in a good way so something should be heading our way this summer!

      • rshina

        but really looking forward to this XD

        they’re actually just half-brother so there’s no need for them to resemble each other or something tho lol

      I want them to use Yuki No Hana but it’s summer and a Johnny’s leading the show :(

      This is the Korean/Japanese version sang by the lead actor of the original drama.

      Will Nagase do a cover?

      The mother still pisses me off to this day just thinking about it. I was hoping someone would tell her that he was her son, but she probably wouldn’t care either way. This is way too melo, idk if it’s going to do well now.

      I’ve just watched the first few episodes of the original ver. (I’m Sorry I Love You) for the sake of knowing the story before I watch Gomen Aishiteru. And I already got soooo many questions on how Nagase will reenact scenes in that drama 😂
