Actress Yukie Nakama, 29, attended an event this week for “Gokusen: THE MOVIE,” which is currently showing in cinemas, and said that it would really be the last time she wore the trademark red-with-white-stripe tracksuit her character, Kumiko Yamaguchi, is famous for.
The PR event in Shiodome, titled “GO! SHIODOME Jamboree Wasshoi! 2009,” attracted about 1,600 people. Aqua Timez, who perform the theme song “Plumeria - Hana Uta” used in the movie, joined Nakama on stage for a rendition of the song. Vocalist Futoshi, 29, was excited when he said: “It’s the first time I’ve seen Kumiko in the flesh.”
According to recent box office numbers, 2.33 million people have gone to see “Gokusen: THE MOVIE,” raking in some 2.7 billion yen.© Japan Today
