Higa Manami & Mitsushima Shinnosuke to play a divorced couple in NTV Spring 2015 drama "Renai Jidai"

Higa Manami and Mitsushima Shinnosuke will be playing a divorced couple in the new NTV Spring 2015 drama "Renai Jidai" (Love Generation) which will begin its run from 2 April in the Thursdays 11.59pm. This will be Higa's first leading role in a private network drama since she made her debut in the 2007 NHK morning drama "Dondon Hare".

The drama which consists of 12 episodes, is based on the late Nozawa Hisashi's novel which won the 4th Shimase Renai Bungaku Award in 1997 and had been adapted into a Korean drama starring Son Yejin in 2006. The drama's script will be written by Fujii Kiyomi who was known for her work in the "Rurouni Kenshin" movies.

Higa plays the role of Eto Haru who works in a sports gym and has a strong sense of duty but finds it difficult to pay attention to detail. Mitsushima plays the role of Hayase Riichiro who works in a bookstore and has an artistic temperament and argumentative by nature. The two of them were briefly married for one and a half years but divorced due to an unknown reason. However, they still remain on good terms with each other to the extent of being weird because they still celebrate their wedding anniversary every year and go to karaoke sessions together. One day, they get into an argument and decide to find a new boyfriend and girlfriend for each other.
