Kanata Hongo
The New Heart Throb

With a Very Busy Schedule

Rising from the cast changes of "NANA 2," Kanata Hongo emerges as the movie's biggest success. Since being casted as Okazaki Shinichi, many girls have come to label Hongo as a teen heart throb. Less than 6 months after the filming of "NANA," he went on to star in two different TV dramas ("Himitsu no Hanazono" and "Seito Shokun").

He is also the star of Bz's latest music video, "Eien no Tsubasa," where he is shown as a young man deep in love. It is obvious now, that casting agents are not hesitating to put Hongo in the image of a male hero. The launch of many new Japanese fansites ("Love Kanata") and even large foreign fanbases ("HongoKanata.com"), are just symbols for his current success.

In Stardust Promotions' upcoming talent magazine, "Real G - Vol 2," Kanata Hongo is featured handsomely on the cover. His appeal draw in not only teen girls, but many older females as well. Fans can also expect to see him in a highly anticipated foreign movie very soon. Hongo was casted in the film "Silk," which is an adaptation of Alessandro Baricco's famous novel. It stars Keira Knightly and Michael Pitt. The movie has been completed, even though Hongo's role is still a mystery. A teaser trailer can be seen here (Hongo's not in the teaser trailer). Silk is scheduled to hit selected US theaters in August 2007. From the looks of it, Kanata Hongo will be busy for a very long time.

B'z - "Eien no Tsubasa" (PV)
Starring Kanata Hongo & Honda Tasuku

Kanata Hongo is the star of Bz's latest music video, "Eien no Tsubasa." The meaning in the PV is a love story, beginning with a young couple who was somehow separated. At the beginning of the video, a beaten down Hongo struggled to his feet and began to go in search for the one he loves (Honda Tasuku). Though incredibly injured and limping, he does not stop for a moment. His desperation to find her in an empty city was extremely touching. And when Hongo and Tasuku finally are together again... He hugs her just before he disappears. This is an VERY romantic story, and Kanata Hongo definitely shines as a heart throb. Super thanks to Doobie at Jpopsuki for the video!
