Production press conference of TV Tokyo Winter 2017 drama "Byplayers Moshimo rokunin no meiwakiyaku ga sharehouse de kurashitara"

The production press conference of TV Tokyo Winter 2017 drama "Byplayers Moshimo rokunin no meiwakiyaku ga sharehouse de kurashitara" was held on 11 January which was attended by the cast members Oosugi Ren, Taguchi Tomoroo, Terajima Susumu, Matsushige Yutaka and Mitsuishi Ken. Endo Kenichi was absent due to other work arrangements so a panel board of his photo was brought to the press conference's venue.

The six actors have been active in many Japanese dramas and movies to date but this is the first time that they are acting together. However, the actors commented that they are taking things very easy this time and the filming feels more like a gathering of middle-aged men. Oosugi who is the oldest among them, said that they he didn't have to display leadership qualities while Terajima commented that the people around them seem to be more hyped up about their collaboration as compared to the actors themselves. Matsushige chipped in to say that they all get along very well and have great teamwork.

As the filming is done primarily at Tateyama City in Chiba Prefecture, the actors go out for meals every night after the filming ends instead of heading back to their hotel rooms. Oosugi revealed that he can't really recall what they talked about during those gatherings but the atmosphere made them feel good and time passed quickly every time. Taguchi joked that they were all speaking at the same time without really listening to one another. Matsushige also revealed that they would split the tab down to the last yen for such gatherings and try to keep the budget to 3,000 yen per person because the very first restaurant they went to turned out to be very expensive while Taguchi teased Mitsuishi for complaining about that expensive bill till today.
