From the 7/4 broadcast of Ohno Satoshi’s Arashi Discovery radio program
On this day Oh-chan answered questions from listeners. As his drama “Shinigami-kun” had just finished there were tons of questions about it.
First: Was the crab in the first episode real? (in the first episode Shinigami-kun had sat on top of a closet and munched on a crab)
Ohno said, “That was real except for one part.” Oh-chan was made to look like he was crunching on the shell of the crab, but actually, the part he was eating was made out of candy.
“It was real! They made a lot of it just in case. They also made shelled-scallops out of candy, even though we didn’t use it in the end."
The second question was: Is the shirt you are wearing under the suit long sleeve or short sleeve?
Ohno replied, "I wonder when it was? For the 4th episode where we filmed in the studio it was really hot so I had a short-sleeved shirt.”
The third question was: Won’t your hat fly away?
“When I am hanging upside down, I would wear a swimming cap and put the hat on top of it. It becomes really tight and surprisingly the hat doesn’t fall.”
The last question: You got punched by Kiritani Mirei’s character many times and it looks real. Was it you or an extra?
It turns out that Ohno really did get hit by Kiritani Mirei that many times (and more). Sometimes she would actually accidentally hit him and she would apologize. In the scene where she hit him with flowers after he tried giving them to her, he really did get hit. Every time he would get hit by Kiritani, coupled with verbal abuse and cursing, but Ohno said, “Surprisingly I actually quite like those kind of scenes."
He ended by saying, "I like acting scenes where I get punched, so I guess I am M. Please call me M.”
This is from the 6/18 broadcast of Ohno Satoshi’s Arashi Discovery radio program.
The quote of the day was a Japanese idiom about trying one’s best and working hard. And so Riida started talking about working out.
He said that now that he no longer works out, his body is all soft and flabby. He used to do sit us and push-ups, but now he doesn’t do them. He does 30 of each exercise during concert tours.
However, Oh-chan says that even though he doesn’t work out now, when he flexes, he still has abs.
“I am a little proud of it. Isn’t it cool?”
Oh-chan says that he tries not to work out as much as he can and wants a body that’s only for looking. He wants to become something like a cat. Even though a cat is always sleepy, when it finds a prey, it will have an outburst of energy. “Wouldn’t it have muscle cramps?” Riida wondered.
He ended by saying, “I will try to keep my body looking nice while working out as little as possible. I am sorry if my body looks shabby at the concert in Hawaii.”
wait. so he’s going to show his abs in Hawaii???????
