"Fuben na Benriya" features Okada Masaki as Takeyama Jun who is a scriptwriter with a wild imagination and poor common sense and lives at a nameless town in Hokkaido. Along with Matsui Hideo (Suzuki Kosuke) who owns a handyman business and Umemoto Soichi (Endo Kenichi) who is a former prison officer and has been divorced thrice to date, the three men will return in the drama SP with a new heroine. In addition, the short film produced by the three actors in the drama will be shown during the 11th Sapporo International Short Films Festival 2016 taking place between 10 Oct and 16 Oct before the drama SP is broadcast.
In the 2015 drama series, the cast and crew broke a Guinness record when they made 2,036 snowmen within an hour. At the end of the drama, Takeyama had quit the convenience business and left Hokkaido. The drama SP will be set 18 months later in the autumn when Takeyama returns to Hokkaido and meets his old friends. Co-stars include Triendl Reina and Tanaka Yoji who also appeared in the original drama series.
