I first learned about Kora Kengo when I saw Norwegian Wood. He’s not the main cast and he died in the movie. I feel that he resembles Masanobu Ando, both the face and the talent. If you watch more of his works, you’ll find him fit as a psychopath. And that’s how I like him. haha

However, my favorite is when he played Detective Tomoda in HARD NUT. Damn, he’s so cool. He looks best when portraying the less smiled character. When he smiles, he often shows shy giggles, just like in Ohisama.

RoomMate_KK_04Kora was born on November 12, 1987, in Kumamoto. He’s currently working under an agency called Aprés (Ten Carat.ltd).

  1. Hi… thanks for your post. I’m a big fans of Kengo Kora from Indonesia. He’s so adorable and cute. And his acting is so briliant. Actually I have become his fans since I saw him in bandage. And now I have wached almost all his movies and dramas. I need to know about him more. I hope you’ll write again about him

  2. Wow. I just watched ep 5 of Love That Will make you cry and preview of ep 6. Suddenly I asked myself who is this man how can he be so different in one drama.

    Never watched him in any drama. He is so talented on how major shift role and expression and when I read about him in phycho drama blog and his movie roles I said to my self. “Where did he go in my jdrama watching?” So handsome, so intense, so expressive and so talented in diff roles

    1. Glad you finally found him. I personally think he’s a versatile actor who’s able to portray various roles from villain to sweet guys. His bad boy looks obviously attracted more antagonist roles. But, it’s mostly in the past. He’s getting more cuter characters now.
      Itsukoi is actually his first main role, but my favorite is when he acted in Hard Nut. Kora being a cool cop? irresistible!
