Tsumabuki Satoshi, Eita, Mitsushima Hikari, Emoto Tasuku and Nomura Shuhei will be playing siblings living under the same roof in the upcoming FujiTV 55th anniversary commemorative summer 2014 drama "Wakamonotachi" (The Youngsters) which begins its run from July. The drama will be directed by Sugita Shigemichi who is known for his work in the "Kita no Kuni kara" series.

"Wakamonotachi" was first made in 1966 which featured Tanaka Kunie, Hashimoto Isao, Sato Orie, Yamamoto Kei and Matsuyama Seiji as five siblings who lost their parents at a young age and how they struggled to live in the midst of various social problems such as poverty. The 2014 version will feature the 5 actors facing loneliness, employment woes and discrimination as they try to deal with the gap between their ideals and reality. Co-stars also include Aoi Yu, Hashimoto Ai and Yoshioka Hidetaka.

As for the theme song "Kimi no yuku michi wa hateshinaku tooi" which was sung by Broad Side Four, the new version will be sung by Moriyama Naotaro.
