Stumbled on this piece of news today... The extremely popular manga/anime Ouran High School Host Club will be receiving the drama treatment this July! I've been wondering when they would do this ever since they did Mei-chan No Shitsuji (don't bother).
The casting according to Dramawiki is as follows:
Kawaguchi Haruna as Haruhi
Yamamoto Yusuke as Tamaki
Nakamura Masaya as Mori
Chiba Yudai as Hani
Takagi Shinpei & Takagi Manpei as Hikaru & Kaoru
Daito Shunsuke as Kyoya

I'm all for Kawaguchi Haruna (sweet child) and Daito Shunsuke (he was Shun Oguri's li'l bro in Hana Kimi!) as I'm familiar with their dramas and I find them agreeable. The twins (I'm surprised they found some real twins!) might not be too bad and the guy casted as Hani looks adorable. The guy casted as Mori has potential too (being tall just like his character). The main problem I find with this (myself and my sisters included)?
Yamamoto Yusuke as Tamaki. *thunderclap* This looks like a disaster waiting to happen. I'm actually HOPING Haruhi doesn't end up with Tamaki. Fingers crossed that this jdorama doesn't suck. It's been awhile since my last one (Hotaru no Hikari 2). I just happened to be rewatching Yankee-kun to Megane-chan when I stumbled on this piece of news.
