In his latest project which is a romantic comedy, Fumiya invited his Pinoy fans to support his new series and shared that he will be playing the role of a man named Sakutaro who is an employee at a cosmetics company. 

ANIMALS, the first drama series in which I appeared in Japan will be broadcast tonight. I was a little nervous about the Japanese drama but I did my best and I hope all Filipinos can watch it. If a lot of Filipinos see this video, I think the Japanese show producers will be surprised! haha,” he wrote.
