Kutsuna Shiori quits university to concentrate on her acting career
Kutsuna had been nicknamed as the Oscar trio along with her peers Takei Emi and Gouriki Ayame as the next generation of stars who will support their agency Oscar. In the beginning, Kutsuna's achievements seemed to pale in comparison to Takei and Gouriki who were getting lots of CM deals and getting involved in various dramas and movies. As Kutsuna faced a bit of difficulty in accepting work offers due to her studies, it made her schedule less flexible than the others. However, now that she's free to concentrate on her acting career and that she had hit dramas under her belt e.g. "Kaseifu no Mita" as well as her reputation for being the best in terms of acting in the trio, that has given Kutsuna an advantage to be on par with Takei and Gouriki or even surpass them.
