Fujiwara Tatsuya and Kuroko Meisa in Korea Drama Iris

Two of Japan’s top actors are on board to provide voice-overs for the local version of Korean blockbuster drama “IRIS”, according to Japanese daily newspaper Sankei Sports over the weekend.

Sankei reported Saturday that noted Japanese actors Fujiwara Tatsuya and Kuroki Meisa will lend their voices for the shows’ two main characters, originally played by top Korean stars Lee Byung-hun and Kim Tae-hee.

The series, which premieres in Japan on April 21, garnered much publicity in Korea for its huge scale, global location shoots and a star-studded cast, led by Lee and including Jung Joon-ho, Kim Seung-woo, Kim So-yeon and Choi Seung-hyun, better known as T.O.P. from popular Korean idol group Big Bang.

Tatsuya, who will voice the male lead in the Japanese version of “IRIS”, has starred in numerous television dramas and films, most notably the hit horror flick “Death Note” (2006).

Meisa, dubbing for Kim Tae-hee’s role, is an actress, model and singer who has appeared in over a dozen TV series and movies including the Asian co-production film “Dance, Subaru!”.
