Japanese actor Naoto Takenaka in a scene from "Nodame Cantabile"
The actor will be playing the role of Hiroki, who wields his powers in the Japanese political and business world by day and in the Yakuza world by night.
So far, the star-studded line-up for the romantic comedy-intelligence action drama includes multi-talented entertainer Rain and Lee Na-young in the lead roles with Daniel Henney, Lee Jung-jin and Gong Hyung-jin playing supporting characters.
Filming for "The Fugitive Plan B", about a hefty sum of money popping up sixty years after it disappeared in times of the Korean War, will take place in various Asian cities including Tokyo, Osaka, Yokohama, Shanghai, Beijing, Macau and Hong Kong.
Naoto Takenaka, 54, who is also an accomplished comedian, director and singer, has appeared in numerous television dramas and films to date.
Some of his best-known works include films "Shall We Dance?" (1996), "Waterboys" (2001) and "Nodame Cantabile" (2006), where he played an eccentric German conductor.
"The Fugitive Plan B" will premiere in Korea around late September.
