「見たこともない景色」菅田将暉

I think I mentioned in my earlier post that I've got a new celebrity crush. He is Suda Masaki, a Japanese actor who acted in many Japanese movies or dramas I have watched but did not really get my attention until I watched one of his movies titled "Oboreru Knife (溺れるナイフ), or Drowning Love" in November last year. Oboreru knife is a shojo manga based movie. Normally, I don't get easily attached to such movies because obviously they are just waaaay too cheesy. However, I was surprised with the impression I had when I watched Oboreru knife, and I literally went to watch it again. Suda's portrayal of Ko in the movie left a very strong impression on me.
Anyway, not limited to movies and dramas, he also appears in many Japanese tv ads and this year, his singing performances were announced, ones for a movie about a Japanese band - GReeeeN and one for a Japanese ads, which I am sharing on this post. It is an ad made by one of Japanese mobile service, famous with its Japanese folklore "Santaro" ads. Suda also appears in some of the ads series as Oni-chan, or the evil. This ad is part of the series as well, made specially to support Japan national soccer team in the Asian qualification for the world cup. What do you think? Don't you think he sings quite well considering he is not a singer?
