Dean Fujioka to star in new movie "Kekkon" as a marriage fraudster

Dean Fujioka will be starring in the new movie "Kekkon" (Marriage) which is based on the 2012 novel by Naoki Award-winning author Inoue Areno. The movie which is due to be shown in summer this year, features Fujioka as a fraudster Koumi Kenji who dupes women into believing that he will marry them and cheats them of their money by taking on a variety of names and identities. During the process, he is assisted by his buddy Sengoku Ruriko (Shuuko) who was almost cheated by Koumi in the past. In order to find out the truth, Koumi's victims launch an investigation which leads them to Ruriko where they subsequently find out the real motive of Koumi.

Fujioka commented that as this character is unlike what he has played to date, he feels quite uneasy but hopes to work hard to make his character convincing. As for Shuuko, she commented that her character Ruriko is so much in love with Koumi that it feels sad so she hopes to show the complex mix of emotions of her character in this movie.

Filming begins this month.
