Watanabe Ken, Kitagawa Keiko & Nikaidou Fumi to star in TBS New Year drama SP "Shiawase no Kioku"
Watanabe Ken will be starring in the upcoming TBS New Year drama SP "Shiawase no Kioku" (Memories of happiness) which will be shown at 9pm on 8 January. The drama SP which is an original story by Oishi Shizuka, features Watanabe as a good-for-nothing father who chalked up huge debts due to his failed business thus leading to his divorce and walking out of his family 5 years ago. However, he returns suddenly to his home without notice which causes confusion and disruption to the lives of his ex-wife (Asou Yumi) and two daughters (Kitagawa Keiko & Nikaidou Fumi). Especially for his elder daughter who had supported the family in her father's absence, she is especially resistant to her father's presence while his younger daughter is secretly happy about it.
Filming is already in progress and co-stars include Chiba Yudai, Miura Takahiro, Yamazaki Shigenori and Sugawara Daikichi.
