Ishihara Satomi experiences proofreading at Sports Nippon for her NTV Autumn 2016 drama "Jimi ni sugoi! Kouetsu Girl Kouno Etsuko"
Ishihara Satomi visited the editorial centre of Sports Nippon where she experienced proofreading as part of her preparation for the upcoming NTV Autumn 2016 drama "Jimi ni sugoi! Kouetsu Girl Kouno Etsuko" which will begin its run from 5 October in the Wednesdays 10pm timeslot. Ishihara commented that she was very nervous about visiting the editorial department of a newspaper company since this is not a place usually open for public access. During her visit, she was mentored by the proofreading section's manager Doi Hiroaki who advised her that the first step in proofreading is to read through the entire piece first and check on the parts which do not seem right. He also shared the tips to get quicker and better at proofreading which made Ishihara marvel that this is how the proofreaders come up with a perfect version of the newspaper every day. Ishihara commented that after the experience, she has come to realise that proofreading is a job where accuracy has to be achieved within a time limit and hopes that viewers will come to realise the appeal behind this job through the drama.
