Chiba Yudai to play Suzuki Sawa's love interest in FujiTV Autumn 2015 drama "Otona Joshi"

Chiba Yudai will be playing a teacher for the first time in the upcoming FujiTV Autumn 2015 drama "Otona Joshi" starring Shinohara Ryoko which begins its run from 15 Oct at 10pm on Thursdays. Chiba takes on the role of a 28-year-old junior high school teacher named Sawada Kenta who is the form teacher of Sakata Midori's (Suzuki Sawa) youngest son. Despite his aspiration to become a pro dancer, he chose to become a teacher so as to fulfill his parents' expectations of him getting a secure job. While interacting with Midori, Kenta admires her for being able to raise her three sons single-handedly after her divorce and starts to woo her aggressively by using tactics such as asking her to support him during his dance practice sessions. Through their interaction, they become close friends who can speak their minds to each other and later develop a romantic relationship despite their 12-year age gap.

When interviewed about his character, Chiba expressed excitement about falling in love with the mother of his student and is eagerly anticipating how the story would develop over the course of the drama. As for Suzuki, she commented that she was nervous when looking into Chiba's eyes which are as pure as that of a deer's and she is also enthusiastic about working with a much younger actor this time.

He has such a baby face he looks like he's cosplaying as a teacher, so the coupling is hard to believe and specially hard to believe she'd be attracted to him the way they show her...
