According to a recent post on the official H!P site, Takahashi Ai will be part of a Japanese dubbing cast for a Korean drama titled Accidental Couple. Ai-chan will be dubbing the part of the main actress Kim Ah-joong who plays Han Ji-soo.
The news was revealed quite a bit ago by Ai-chan herself in a call to Gaki’s radio show special where she revealed that she was currently dubbing a Korean drama, but it’s great to finally get an official confirmation.
I’m glad to see that Ai-chan is getting many chances to form part of dramas and since this time she will be dubbing a character instead of actually acting on-screen it will be interesting to see how it turns out, although she will most likely do a great job since her acting skills are some of the best.
The drama is somewhat short (about 11 episodes according to the H!P site, but it might be 16), although it is a great start for Ai-chan in dubbing and it might eventually lead to more dubbing roles in the future.
It seems that the character Ai-chan will be dubbing is fairly popular so Ai-chan has quite a bit of work to do, although I wish her the best of luck and hopefully we can soon find out how the dubbed version sounds when it airs.
The drama will begin airing on 9/17.
