Narimiya Hiroki
The Ideal Boyfriend


On the 17th, actor Narimiya Hiroki attended eye make-up and nail care company Koji's campaign launch 'Love In Your Eyes' as its image character. In conjunction with the campaign, a cellphone novel based on the theme of 'close-range love' is produced. Narimiya commented on his own romantic experiences, "I've been jilted so many times. Why? Reasons like I can't meet, or it's just not real." He was frank about how being busy with work has led to disappointments in his personal life.

In the cellphone novel, Narimiya plays the role of an 'Ideal Boyfriend'. He's the sole character as he speaks to the camera. "It felt a bit awkward as it's just from the camera's point of view, and not having lines with someone else was quite unsettling," he said.

Narimiya who's usually 'shy and has stranger anxiety', revealed more about his private life, "Just being meek doesn't work. You have to show all your cards. Tactics? I think I used to be good at those, but it's already in the past." When asked about achieving a certain victory, he said with a wry smile, "I guess you convey your emotions through your eyes. But not staring for too long, just a gaze kind of feeling."

The cellphone movie and novel for the 'Love In Your Eyes' campaign will be available from 21st August onwards.

Narimiya Hiroki
Full Disclosure in his Photobook


On the 6th, it was revealed that actor Narimiya Hiroki (27) would be releasing a photobook on July 1st to commemorate his 10th year anniversary debut. The book is at least 3cm thick, with more than 170 pages - about double the number of pages of a normal photobook. It has taken 6 years to put the book together - 'Hiroki Narimiya Anniversary Book "10"' (Kadokawa Group Publishing, 2800 yen) is the end result. It is a collection which reflects on his journey over the past 10 years, hence making it a "very thick" photobook.

Narimiya reassures that the photobook is luxurious both in quantity and quality. The difference is the thickness of this book. Usually, photobooks have about 80 - 90 pages; this one has 170 pages, about double that of a normal one. Because of the high quality of paper used, the book will be at least 3cm thick. It's quite similar to textbooks used by high school students, so it could be termed the 'Narimiya History Textbook'.

Narimiya's past, present and future are in the book. He has always been involved in the project, it contains insights as well as 'hot' photos. There are more than 100 pages in the photo corner, including semi-nude shots, and over 250 off-shot photos taken by his manager.

The book also includes public interviews and private conversations between Narimiya and 10 key persons, including actor Oguri Shun and Shinagawa Hiroshi, director for the movie 'Drop'. Narimiya is satisfied with the completed book, "10 years as an actor, there's still a lot for me to learn, but I'm happy to have reached this milestone. It has given me many chances to go through different experiences."

Narimiya made his debut 10 years ago on 1st July 2000, in a stageplay at Tokyo's Shibuya Parco Theatre. A handshake event to commemorate the sale of his photobook will be held at the Libro Shibuya Store on 3rd July. Tickets for the event will be distributed at the same store on 11th June from 10am onwards.
