Kitagawa wants to find true love, and Okada Masaki wants...

Yesterday, actress Kitagawa Keiko (23) and actor Okada Masaki (20) attended a special stage greeting for their movie "Matataki" (also "Piecing Me Back Together"). The special event was held in order to thank their fans for pushing the movie to the first place for having the most tickets sold in advance and since it's only a few days until the Tanabata Festival (a star festival), both of them appeared in beautiful kimonons.
Kitagawa's wish in front of the Tanabata decorations, "I have the same Zodiac sign as the current year and will turn 24 this year. I think that's a critical point in my life and it would be great if an as twinkling (matataki) and true love was happening to me as well."
Okada's amusing wish, "It would be great if my curly hair would straighten out this year. It's always getting curled again. Recently I tried to counter it with moisture products…"
Matataki is a love story about true love. Kitagawa and Okada play the couple Izumi and Junichi. One day they end up in a traffic accident that leaves Junichi dead and the shock from her boyfriend's sudden death causes Izumi to lose her memory from the time of the accident. Later she slowly starts to remember the accident and all the deep feelings he had for him.
The movie already opened on June 19 and was supported by various PR activities that already started back in April. Today's event marked the end of their domestic campaign to promote the movie and they went on stage to thank everyone who went to see the movie so far. They received flowers from the staff and the audience even thanked them for making such a beautiful movie. "It was the first time I got thanked for making a movie," Kitagawa was moved and responded with a smile. (Kawaii Joyuu)
