Press conference of NHK drama "Silent Poor"
The press conference for new NHK drama "Silent Poor" was held on 19 March which was attended by the cast members Fukada Kyoko, Kitamura Yukiya and Kagawa Kyoko. The drama which will be shown from 8 April in the Tuesdays 10pm timeslot, features Fukada as a community social worker who reaches out to people alienated from society such as the homeless and those cooping themselves at home. Fukada commented that she hopes that this drama will spur more people to work in this line and help others who are in the same predicament to change their current situation. As to how she prepared herself for this role, Fukada revealed that she had to make sure that she shouldn't view herself as being superior to those who needed help and learned how to interact with people in a better way through playing this character.
