New Japanese Drama ‘Muscle Girl’

Muscle Girl is a brand new Japanese drama, starring actress Ichikawa Yui (pictured) and Korean boy-band FT Island’s lead vocalist Lee Hongki (pictured).

It follows the story of Azusa (Ichikawa), the manager of a female pro-wrestling organisation that is in danger of closing. By fate, she runs into a young Korean man (Hongki) who she persuades to help her by serving as a referee for one day. Together, they embark on a challenge to create a strong women’s wrestling group with enough skill to compete, and thus save the organisation.

Hongki is well-known for his membership in FT Island but has become increasingly popular thanks to his role as Jeremy in the Korean drama You’re Beautiful. Muscle Girl is his Japanese drama debut, and FT island’s ‘Haruka’ is the theme song.

The drama will air on April 19th (TBS) and April 23rd (MBS).
